Bannon: Comey firing was worst mistake
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders signaled Monday that the President and the White House stand by his decision to fire Comey.
“It has been shown in the days that followed that the President was right to fire Director Comey,” Sanders said, arguing that Comey gave “false testimony” and leaked “privileged information to journalists.”
“I think the President’s been very clear about his position on that front,” Sanders said, adding that Trump is “very pleased with the new” FBI director, Christopher Wray, whom the Senate confirmed last month.
In the online segment, Bannon also said he doesn’t believe Trump should fire Mueller, adding that he has not heard anything from within the White House that would indicate such a move is under consideration. Trump himself told reporters last month he hasn’t given firing Mueller any thought, despite people close to him telling the media that the President was considering it.
Bannon’s brash character was on full display in the interview, in which he discussed his disdain for the Catholic Chuch’s position on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, called the investigation into Russian election involvement “a farce” and took aim at the Republican establishment.
