White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called Democrats' calls to impeach President Donald Trump "simply sad" and said Monday party members have been trying to find ways to attack him since 2016, when he defeated Hillary Clinton for the White House.
Sanders, who spoke to Mueller's investigators under oath, told them her use of the word "countless" was a "slip of the tongue".
Sanders was later asked during the briefing what her response was to the rank-and-file Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who "disagree with your contention that they lost faith in Director Comey". Sanders stood by her claim, despite admitting to Mueller that it was "not founded on anything". "It's "Fire me Thursday" or 'Fire me, Good Friday.' She needs to go".
"One of the things I am most grateful for is all the things the president has accomplished under these last two years", she said.
In the interview, she claimed that while comments she made at press briefings in 2017 were not always accurate, but the essence of what she was saying was the truth.
Burr spokeswoman Caitlin Carroll said that Burr did not recall the specific conversation with White House counsel Don McGahn in March 2017.
The term applies to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her misleading statements from the press briefing room podium.

Sanders has been accused of deceptive practices many times during her almost two-year-long stint as press secretary.
"The Mueller report itself says that there is no interference", Conway shot back.
At the time, Sanders told the press that Trump "certainly didn't dictate" the statement, but that "he weighed in, offered suggestions like any father would do". "I don't know what else I can say".
"Correct", Sanders replied. "Between email, text messages, absolutely". They can't trust what's said from the President's mouthpiece-spokesperson from the people's house.
"This now documented, on-the-record, under-oath episode, I think it completely obliterates her credibility", said Kyle Pope, editor-in-chief and publisher of Columbia Journalism Review.
According to Mueller's report, however, there is "substantial evidence" to indicate that Trump fired Comey for refusing to publicly state that the president wasn't personally under investigation.
"The White House Press Secretary's role is to keep the public informed about the most powerful office in the world", GLAAD tweeted.
