Sarah Sanders went on the offensive on Friday morning to insist her made-up, "slip of the tongue" comment that "countless" Federal Bureau of Investigation agents told her they wanted James Comey fired was not a lie but just a mistake made in "the heat of the moment".
Sanders responded to the discrepancy Thursday in conversation with Fox News' Sean Hannity, saying she was wrong to use the word "countless" but that it was "not untrue" that a number of current and former agents referred to Comey as a "disgraced leaker", The Hill reported.
"If you look at what's in quotations from me, it's that and it's that it was 'in the heat of the moment, ' meaning that it wasn't a scripted talking point", Sanders said. The report also says she acknowledged the comment "was not founded on anything".
Mueller's team was interested in the decision making that ultimately led to the firing of Comey to determine whether or not the president was engaging in possible obstruction of justice.
"In Ryan's words, Sanders has to got to go because she" has no credibility". "It's "Fire Me Thursday" or "Fire Me Good Friday,' - she needs to go".

"In the immediate aftermath of the firing, the President dictated a press statement suggesting that he had acted based on the [Department of Justice] recommendations, and White House press officials repeated that story", Mueller wrote in his report.
The next day, she repeated the lie about Comey's alleged lack of support in the agency. She claimed "the president's rhetoric matches" Democrats accusing Trump of collusion, which is "an accusation equal to treason, which is punishable by death in this country".
The CNN analyst suffered an embarrassing episode in May when she falsely claimed President Trump was heckled during the "Celebration of America" event at the White House. That said, the Mueller report confirmed even more that has no relationship with the truth and April Ryan is calling for her to be fired.
At least one publisher said the credibility problems that existed for Sanders before Mueller's report have worsened after it. She says the press is fake when she's faking reports from the people's house.
"So you're saying the president has never asked you to say anything you knew not to be true", "CBS This Morning" co-host Dickerson asked. And when the president wants to do something and make a decision he does it.
