"However, any conversations between the two would have been in reference to the need for White House personnel to voluntarily comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation investigation", she said. Should Sarah Sanders hold another, she can expect to spend it in the hot seat.
In it, Mueller's team detailed how they examined internal White House proceedings following Trump's May 2017 firing of Comey.
'Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue.
Sanders' claim on 10 May 2017, the day after Comey was sacked, that "countless members of the FBI" opposed Comey was "a slip of the tongue", Sanders told the special counsel's office in an interview previous year. Sanders had told reporters that Comey had lost the confidence of rank-and-file members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation who welcomed the president's decision.
She said the point she was making "is that a number of both current and former Federal Bureau of Investigation agents agreed with the President".
Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr appeared to brief the White House counsel's office about the targets of the FBI's Russian Federation investigation in March 2017, special counsel Robert Mueller's report says.

Q Sarah, you said from the podium yesterday that Director Comey had lost the confidence of the rank and file of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The reaction was not entirely surprising and had been something staffers feared in the days ahead of the report's release as they wondered how Mueller might portray their testimony and whether the report might damage their relationships with Trump.
"She out and out lied, and the people, the American people can't trust her".
He asked her to provide a number of Federal Bureau of Investigation employees, and Sanders said: "Look, we're not going to get into a numbers game. She needs to go".
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".
In another section, Mueller details how Trump questioned McGahn's note-taking, telling the White House counsel that, "Lawyers don 't take notes" and that he'd "never had a lawyer who took notes". "I can speak to my own personal experience", she added. She characterized her lie and smear of Comey as "a slip of the tongue".
Rosenstein said in an interview with the special counsel's office that he had told other justice department officials that night that he would not participate in putting out a "false story" that Comey's firing had been his idea. She further stated that President Trump privately praised her for the public dishonesty.
