White House press secretary Sarah Sanders suggested Fox News that FBI officials were criminals for their lawful probe of the 2016 Trump campaign, which resulted in criminal; convictions:
Look, I’m not going to get ahead of the [Inspector General’s] report but I think just like most Americans we all want to know why did this start in the first place and why were they spying on the Trump campaign?
It seems like a gross overreach and we would like answers. We think the attorney general is doing a great job. We’re glad he is looking at the other side and the origins where all these things started.
It’s a completely insane process that’s taken place. If anything, it looks like if there was ever any crime committed it was probably at the beginning when this whole thing began.
