White House says 'no contradiction' in Trump's tweets on FISA law

Fake News Awards

Sanders insisted that Trump has a "full understanding" of the FISA debate, additionally pointing to comments made earlier Thursday by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) that defended the president's knowledge of the issue. The crowd of White House reporters gasped at her response.

Sanders likely will face questions about President Donald Trump's views on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Instead, the President's frustrations Thursday morning appeared to be aimed only at surveillance that was conducted on foreign intelligence sources - likely using a FISA warrant - that also swept up members of the Trump transition team.

"We don't think that there was a conflict at all", Sanders said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not having it when CNN's Jim Acosta continuously pressed her on President Trump's potential future immigration policies during Tuesday's press briefing.

Having been thoroughly prepared for that next step, I am truly ready, because in the beginning, I chose THE RIGHT SCHOOL. On Tuesday, Alabama coach Nick Saban said he met with seven potential early entrants to the draft about their decisions.

The reversals continued Thursday when Trump contradicted the official White House position regarding the reauthorization of an element of the FISA law that entitles intelligence agencies to collect the communications of foreigners overseas without a warrant.

She said the president has "some overall concern" about abuse of of civil liberties under the program but understands the need for national security. (See the tweets below). "I think where the discrepancy comes in is why a year later, number 1?"

Acosta said he does not want to "dance around" Trump's "problem" in the area of race relations, and he expressed pain at saying the word Trump used.

Sanders faced a grilling about the tweets throughout the press conference, but she stuck to her talking points.
