Mainstream media reporters attacked like an angry pack of wolves when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to the podium Wednesday to address Russian meddling in the U.S. election process.
They were ready to bite her head off while pushing their narrative that President Trump was unfairly elected, is controlled by Russia, and is doing nothing to stop ongoing Russian interference, but Sanders scattered them with a salvo of truth bombs.
Questioned by a reporter if Trump actually said “no” when asked if Russia is currently trying to meddle in the 2018 midterm elections, Sanders informed him that Trump was simply saying “no” to the offer to answer more questions.
Sanders said she knows of no instance of Russia currently meddling in our election process but said that “we are taking steps to make sure they can’t do it again, unlike previous administrations.”
“This president is actually taking bold action in reform to make it it doesn’t happen again,” she said, pointing out that obvious fact that if Russian election interference took place during Trump’s campaign, then it happened squarely on President Obama’s watch.
Tom Malinowski, a Democrat who served in Obama’s administration, agreed on Wednesday during an MSNBC interview that Obama’s White House “should have done more” to stop it, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
Trump made a similar point earlier in the week, pointing out that, “The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration. Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?”
“From the beginning of his administration, President Trump has actually taken action to defend our election system from meddling and interference,” Sanders explained, laying out numerous times the president has taken steps with the Department of Homeland Security to improve election security during his time in office.
She criticized the mainstream media’s “outrageousness and the desire to find the negative in everything this president does.”
“This has gotten totally out of control,” Sanders chided them. “You guys need to take a little bit of a step back. Slow down and stop going after the Trump administration on every single thing that takes place.”
