“The Justice Department should consider prosecuting former FBI director James B. Comey for actions that ‘were improper and likely could have been illegal,’ White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday. ‘I think if there’s ever a moment where we feel someone’s broken the law, particularly if they’re the head of the FBI, I think that’s something that certainly should be looked at,’ Sanders said. … Sanders ticked through a list of actions or alleged actions by Comey that she said justified his firing by Trump, in May, and some of which, she said, may be illegal.” (09/12/17)
