White House accuses Clinton of 'reckless attacks' in book

Steve Bannon: Trump firing James Comey the biggest mistake in “modern political history” Bannon: Trump's firing of Comey may be biggest mistake 'in modern political history'

At the daily press briefing, Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, told reporters Comey's actions as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation "were improper and likely could have been illegal".

While promoting her personal campaign autopsy, Clinton has laid blame on individuals she thinks contributed to the downfall of her campaign, including her primary challenger, Sen.

Sanders' comments were in reference to new allegations that Comey drafted an exoneration letter for Hillary Clinton prior to interviewing the former secretary of state about her use of a private email server.

"We've been clear on what our position is and certainly, that has been shown in the days that followed that the president was right in firing Director Comey", Sanders said.

DOJ won't bring charges against officers in Freddie Gray case
The end of the federal investigation without charges means no officers will be held criminally responsible for Gray's death. DOJ has been investigating whether police officers violated Gray's civil rights during the events that led to his death.

The question arose as Sanders defended Trump's decision to fire Comey earlier this year, a choice Trump's former chief strategist called a mistake this week.

During Tuesday's White House press briefing, Sanders said she did not know whether Trump would read the whole book titled "What Happened".

"I think there is no secret Comey by his own self-admission leaked privileged government information weeks before President Trump fired him".

Democrats are reticent to rehash the 2016 campaign failures, fearing the conversation will only deepen divides between staunch progressives and establishment Democrats at a time when they would like to appear united in opposition to the Trump administration. She said legal action should be considered for what she described as Comey's fireable actions.
