In 2017, Sanders said the FBI's rank and file lost confidence in former FBI Director James Comey.
She faced similar questions previous year after Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's personal attorneys, surprised the White House by saying on national TV that Trump had reimbursed his then-fixer Michael Cohen for the $130,000 Cohen had paid porn actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 campaign to keep quiet about an alleged past sexual encounter with Trump.
She acknowledged to Mueller's team that her comments weren't true.
"Therefore, she should be let go; she should be fired; end of story", Ryan continued.
Ms McFarland "knew she was providing false information" when she called Mr Ignatius to dispute his surmise that Mr Flynn had discussed removing sanctions on Russian Federation with Mr Kislyak.
"Actually, if you look at what I said, the slip of the tongue was in using the word 'countless, '" Sanders said on "Good Morning America".
Former White House aide Hope Hicks told the special counsel's office that Trump was "extremely upset" and that she had only seen Trump like that one other time: when the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape was released.
Although Mueller concluded that the president's efforts were "mostly unsuccessful" because "the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out his orders or accede to his requests", one individual was singled out by Mueller for less-honorable conduct: White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who on at least three occasions perpetuated a false narrative.
Following the press conference, Sanders spoke to the President, who told her she did a good job and did not point out any inaccuracies in her comments.
The unveiling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page report which, as US Attorney General William Barr stressed, did not find any evidence of Trump's campaign staff colluding with Moscow or evidence of Trump trying to obstruct justice, apparently was not enough to sway the opinion of the current US president's celebrity detractors, many of whom took to social media to vent their grievances. And when the president wants to do something and make a decision he does it. She has been caught red-handed lying to the press and the American people. "When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start ... lopping the heads off". She characterized her lie and smear of Comey as "a slip of the tongue". The claim would have been false, since Mr Trump had unsuccessfully sought to build a luxury skyscraper in Moscow while he was running for president. "I mean, I have heard from a large number of individuals that work at the Federal Bureau of Investigation that said that they're very happy with the president's decision".
