White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders attempted to put distance between the president and an investigation into inaugural committee on Tuesday after federal prosecutors dug deeper into the organization’s finances.
Federal prosecutors in New York issued a subpoena Monday seeking documents from the committee, furthering a federal inquiry into a fund that has faced mounting scrutiny into how it raised and spent its money.
Sander maintained that the probe has ‘nothing to do’ with the White House, however, and she suggested that ‘hysteria’ from the president’s critics is all that is all that tying him to investigations into his business and associates.
‘I’m reading the same reports you are this morning, gathering that information,’ she said on CNN’s ‘New Day’ program. ‘What I do know at this point is this has nothing to do with the White House, and for anything specific and further, I’d refer you back to the Trump inaugural committee.’
