Sarah Huckabee Sanders UNLOADS On CNN For Saying She Propagated A Lie

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attacked CNN for saying she cited something that has been proven incorrect in a tweet on Wednesday night.

The New York Times article Sanders referenced in her tweet quoted Lee H. Hamilton, the vice chairman of the Sept.11 commission, who said, “Leaks, for instance, can be terribly damaging. In the late 90’s, it leaked out in The Washington Times that the U.S. was using Osama bin Laden’s satellite phone to track his whereabouts. Bin Laden stopped using that phone; we lost his trail.”

“The media routinely reports on classified information and government secrets that put lives in danger and risks valuable national security tools,” Sanders said at Wednesday’s press briefing. She then cited the situation about bin Laden’s phone to prove her point, and CNN reported that her claim had been proven false previously.

“That assertion is false and it has previously been debunked years ago,” CNN’s Jeremy Diamond reported.
