Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was the one who acted inappropriately with Ukraine, and President Donald Trump should not be facing an impeachment inquiry over the actions of the Bidens and his son, former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders claimed Tuesday.
"The only corruption in this entire process has to do with the Bidens, not the president, not the White House," Sanders, now employed as a Fox News contributor, commented on "America's Newsroom."
"It is the fact that Joe Biden was acting inappropriately and making sweetheart deals for his son. That's the corruption in this process. The president shouldn't be getting impeached. He should be celebrated for draining the swamp and following through on another one of his campaign promises."
She added that the "hypocrisy" and "fake outrage" from Democrats is "astonishing," and she hopes the media and the American people will continue to call them out.
A whistleblower's complaint against Trump, she added, doesn't matter because "we have the transcript" of the call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
"The White House has been fully transparent in this process, and the complaint doesn't matter," Sanders maintained. "It is second-hand information which we don't need because we have firsthand information in the transcript that the White House has voluntarily released. I don't think there is anything that the whistleblower can tell us that isn't in that."
She also reacted to the news that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on the call between the world leaders, saying that should not be a problem.
"I don't know if Mike Pompeo was on the call but I wouldn't be surprised if he was," she said. "Why wouldn't he be? He is the secretary of state and is regularly engaging with leaders on a global stage, as he should be. He is one of the smartest people that the president has around him."
