An embarrassing tweet from Sarah Huckabee Sanders has reemerged just in time for the bombshell revelation that President Donald Trump was the target of an FBI probe.
The New York Times reported Friday that a concerned FBI, fearful that Trump may have been working on behalf of the Kremlin, launched a probe after the president fired FBI director James Comey.
Trump’s response to the Times report was to call FBI leaders “corrupt” and Comey a “sleaze.”
Sanders has an opinion about that. “When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing,” she tweeted in 2016 from her personal account.
She wasn’t referring then to Trump. Sanders, who was a senior aide in the Trump campaign at the time, was slamming presidential rival Hilary Clinton, whose missing emails were being investigated by the FBI. Sanders didn’t offer evidence of Clinton disparaging FBI agents — or calling them names.
Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin’ James Comey, a total sleaze!
