Sarah Sanders Fires Back at Press Leaking Classified Information: ‘Look Around This Room’

During the White House press briefing on Monday, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked how people can handle classified information if they do not have a permanent security clearance.

According to Sanders, the lack of permanent clearances rests on the intelligence agencies that are responsible for granting them. Attention was then turned to White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who resigned after allegations surfaced that he abused two ex-wives.

“Can you guarantee you’re protecting classified information when you have someone like Rob Porter …,” a reporter began to ask.

“We’re doing and taking every step we can to protect classified information,” Sanders responded. “I mean, frankly, if you guys have such concern with classified information, there’s plenty of it that has leaked out of the Hill, 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. That doesn’t come from this White House,” she added.

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders is truly a gift from above! The President could not have a better person in the position she holds. It is a true pleasure to watch her “handle” the so-called “journalists.”

    Sarah, gave a perfect answer to this inquiring reporter, who apparently was asking a pointed question, to stump Sarah, but her astute and sharp thinking gave a stunning answer. Sarah Sanders is the very best White House Press Secretary of any who have ever held this tactful position. She handles the Press questions with laser like precision answers. She knows how to put them in their place.

    Sarah is just fantastic. It’s about time someone had the strength and morals to tell the fake news media to zip it!

    I suggest that the liberal reporters and “journalists” in general, addressing Sarah Huckabee Sanders, take a lesson from trial lawyers. Never ask a question you don’t know the answer to. The answer can come back to bite one on the AZZ, Big League!
