From Raw Story:
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday repeated her criticism of former FBI director James Comey. She also said the Department of Justice should consider prosecuting him.
“I think everyone knows where the president stands on that issue,” Sanders said during a press briefing. “The president is proud of the decision he made. The president was 100 percent right in firing James Comey. He knew at the time that it could be bad for him politically, but he also knew and felt he had an obligation to do what was right.”
“I think there is no secret Comey by his own self-admission leaked privileged government information, weeks before President Trump fired him Comey testified that an FBI agent engaged in the same practice, they would face serious repercussions,” she continued. “His actions were improper and likely could have been illegal.
“Comey leaked memos to the New York Times. He politicized an investigation by signaling he would exonerate Hillary Clinton before interviewing her or other key witnesses. [Trump] is very happy with the decision he made and I think he has been fully vindicated.”
She was asked if the White House wanted to see Comey prosecuted for his alleged illegal behavior.
“That’s not the president’s role,” Sanders replied. “That’s the job of the Department of Justice — and something they should certainly look at.”
The excuses are almost inevitable, and predictable: The account was hacked, possibly by those pesky Russians. Or some rogue intern got hold of the social media, a secret Democrat intent on sabotage. Whatever the case, it is all but certain that Ted Cruz, the conservative Republican who serves as the junior Senator from Texas, will deny having “liked” a pornographic clip on Twitter.
The facts are as follows: On Monday evening, the account belonging to Cruz “liked” a video clip posted by @SexuallPosts, an account whose sole purpose is disseminating pornographic videos. That clip, 2 minutes and 20 seconds in length, has a woman walking into what appears to be her house. There, she discovers a couple having sexual intercourse. She proceeds to watch them, to her own evident pleasure.
The Cruz account retracted the “like” as soon as it began to attract the attention of Twitter users. By then, of course, it was too late.
And Twitter is having fun:
