Returning from her much deserved vacation, Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press briefing today at the White House to update members of the media on President Trump’s incredible infrastructure plan.
After detailing the infrastructure plan that Trump revealed this morning, Sarah opened up the floor for questions. Of course, the only thing reporters wanted to talk about was the recent ousting of White House aide Rob Porter last week.
The media has been abuzz after allegations surfaced the Porter had physically abused two of his previous wives. Porter was forced to resign late last week.
Kristen Welker, a reporter for NBC news seemed to think that these allegations somehow bleed over into the security clearance realm for some reason.
“Why are high-level aides allowed to work with classified information without a permanent security clearance?”
Sarah answered very politely.
“That’s a question that the FBI and other intelligence communities – they make that determination. That is not something that is decided by the White House.”
The reporter wouldn’t give it a rest.
“Can you guarantee that you are protecting classified information from people if you have someone like Rob Porter who doesn’t have a permanent security clearance with access to classified information?”
This is where Sarah had to lay down the law and call out everyone in the room.
“We take every step we can to protect classified information. Frankly, if you guys have such a concern with classified information there is plenty of it that is leaked out of the Hill; that’s leaked out of other communities well beyond the White House walls. If you guys have real concerns about leaking out classified information, look around this room. You guys are the ones that publish classified information and put national security at risk.”
BOOM! This is what we love about Sarah Huckabee. She continuously calls out these hypocrites in front of the whole world!
