WH Spox Get Asked Why Trump Wants Obama Jailed:
“I Never Said That, Those Are Your Words, Not Mine”

Mediaite reports:

During Friday’s White House press briefing, CBS News correspondent Steven Portnoy pressed Kayleigh McEnany on President Donald Trump’s comments about “Obamagate” crimes.

“The president suggested people should be jailed for what he suggested earlier in the week was a very obvious crime,” he said. “You’re an attorney and the president’s spokesperson. Perhaps you could lay out the elements of this crime. What crime was committed and in what way?”

Portnoy asked if the president thinks “those people should be jailed.” McEnany said, “I never said that. Those are your words, not mine. But perhaps you should look into it and get some answers. That is, after all, the job of reporters to answer the very questions I’ve laid out and I hope you guys will take the time to do it.”
