Mueller III, published for the first time over the weekend by the Times, the president’s private legal team conceded that Trump had, in fact, dictated the statement.
“What’s the reason for that discrepancy?” the Hill’s Jordan Fabian asked Sanders.
“This is from a letter from the outside counsel, and I’d direct you to them to answer that question,” Sanders replied.
That. Doesn’t. Make. Sense.
