The White House responds to Friday’s major developments in the special counsel’s investigation, in regards to the filings against Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the filing in Manafort’s case says “absolutely nothing about President Trump” and even less about collusion.
She added that “once again, the media is trying to create a story where there isn’t one.”
Speaking on Cohen’s filing, she says it tells the public “nothing of value that was not already known,” also noting Cohen has repeatedly lied.
