Huckabee Sanders suggests DOJ should investigate Comey

And most of those questions were about Bannon's claim to Charlie Rose that Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey was the biggest political mistake in modern history.

Asked to clarify whether she thought Comey perjured himself or at least misled Congress, Sanders told Fox News' John Roberts: "I think that's something probably for DOJ to look at, not me".

In "What Happened", which hit bookshelves Tuesday, Clinton remembers how her "skin crawled" while Trump loomed over her during the second presidential debate and shares other anecdotes from the campaign trail to the fateful night she learned she lost the election.


"I think he's pretty well versed on what happened" she said. The press secretary said these revelations were proof that Trump made the correct choice after the fact. Comey set the stage for his own firing, she said, with actions that were "improper and likely could have been illegal". He signaled he would exonerate Hillary Clinton before interviewing her.

That's in apparent reference to Comey's acknowledgement during a June congressional hearing that he authorized the leaking of a memo about his conversations with the president to the New York Times.

"I think if there's ever a moment we think someone has broken the law", she added, "particularly if they're the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I think that's something that should certainly be looked at".


She added: "He's very happy with the decision he's made and I think he's been fully vindicated".

"That's the job of the Department of Justice, and something they should certainly look at", she said.

"Those details are still being finalized", Sanders said.
