Democrats are drooling over the list of questions Robert Mueller plans to ask Donald Trump.
California Democrat Adam Schiff is one of the most prominent Democrats pushing the idea that Trump is engaged in some form of underhanded behavior.
But when Sarah Sanders was asked about Schiff’s claims of obstruction of justice, she shut him down with one brutal answer.
Sanders was quizzed by a reporter about Schiff’s comments that Mueller appeared to be narrowing in on evidence that President Trump obstructed justice.
The Press Secretary coolly dismissed Schiff as an irrelevant pest.
The Daily Caller reports:
“White House press secretary Sarah Sanders shot down a question about House Intelligence Committee ranking member Adam Schiff at Tuesday’s briefing.
The putdown occurred during an exchange between Sanders and Daily Mail White House correspondent Francesca Chambers.
Chambers had originally pressed the White House on whether or not there were fears that the 48 questions special counsel Robert Mueller has submitted to President Donald Trump’s legal team point to POTUS being under investigation for obstruction of justice.
Sanders pushed and suggested reporters ask the question to Trump’s personal lawyers.
“A question about the White House specifically, then,” Chambers continued. “Is the White House concerned as Congressman Adam Schiff has said, that so many of the questions point to obstruction of justice?”
“We here at the White House try never to be concerned with anything dealing with Adam Schiff,” Sanders flatly responded.”

Trump realizes the obstruction allegations are just a smokescreen to create a process crime out of an investigation that has found no evidence of collusion with Russia.
There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap). What there is is Negotiations going on with North Korea over Nuclear War, Negotiations going on with China over Trade Deficits, Negotiations on NAFTA, and much more. Witch Hunt!

Trump firing James Comey was a lawful execution of his authority as President under Article II of the Constitution.
But facts won’t get in the way of Adam Schiff running to the nearest TV camera to blabber fake news about collusion and obstruction.
Which means everyone should follow Sarah Sanders’ lead and just ignore him.
