Sarah Sanders on defense after Mueller Report

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders defended the president and her own conduct on CBS This Morning on Friday, after being named in the Mueller Report as having perpetuated a false narrative on at least three occasions.

Special counsel Mueller's report in Russian meddling in the 2016 election was released on Thursday.

The report provided extensive details on Trump's efforts to thwart Mueller's investigation, noting 10 times President Trump sought to hinder the probe.

Mueller concluded that failed in those efforts because "the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out his orders or accede to his requests," but he singled out Sanders, who on at least three occasions he said, perpetuated a false narrative.

In May 2017, after Trump fired FBI Director, Comey, Sanders told reporters that Comey no longer had the confidence of the president and other people.

According to , Sanders told investigators the phrase she used - "countless members of the FBI" - was a "slip of the tongue".

The report continued, "She also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made 'in the heat of the moment;' that was not founded on anything." Sanders acknowledged to investigators that the comments were baseless.

During an interview Friday morning on CBS This Morning, Sanders said she had acknowledged the word "countless" was "a slip of the tongue" but said "it's no secret that a number of FBI, both current and former, agreed with the president's decision."
