Huckabee Sanders suggests DOJ should investigate Comey

Sanders, who defended the Comey firing in response to criticism from former chief strategist Steve Bannon, did not specify what testimony she was citing.

Tom Bossert, President Donald Trump's homeland security adviser, would be one of the people taking the lead, Marketwatch reported.

"I would think he is pretty well versed on what happened, and I think it is pretty clear to all of America", she said. The press secretary said these revelations were proof that Trump made the correct choice after the fact.

"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".

Comey's "actions were improper and likely could have been illegal", Sanders said.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders threw the book at Hillary Clinton's new memoir.

Earlier this year, Comey testified before Congress that he arranged for his personal memos about his conversations with Trump to be shared with news outlets to ensure that a special prosecutor was appointed to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election campaign.

Sanders also said Comey, "by his own admission, leaked privileged government information". "[Trump] is very happy with the decision he made and I think he has been fully vindicated".

Sen. Lindsey Graham told Fox News' Catherine Herridge last week that he wants to bring back Comey to Capitol Hill, over concerns about Comey's statements on the conclusion of the Clinton email case. She also said the Department of Justice should consider prosecuting him. "That's the job of the Department of Justice - and something they should certainly look at".

"That's not the president's role", Sanders replied.
