“We’re going to let the attorney general make that determination as he gets to the conclusion of this investigation.”
The White House won’t rule out prosecuting President Donald Trump’s adversaries.
During an interview on NBC’s Meet The Press on Sunday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Attorney General William Barr will decide whether former FBI director James Comey could face criminal charges from Trump’s Justice Department.
“We’re going to let the attorney general make that determination as he gets to the conclusion of this investigation,” said Sanders of the president’s decision to give Barr broad new powers to investigate the investigation of Trump’s campaign.
“We certainly expect the people that were responsible and that were part of this unprecedented obstruction and corruption at the FBI, those people should certainly be held responsible and be held accountable,” added Sanders. “And the president expects that to take place.”
