President Donald Trump is cool as a cucumber amid the turmoil of the past 48 hours, if you take it from press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

When asked Wednesday if Trump was worried about the frequently teased information Michael Cohen could offer special counsel Robert Mueller, Sanders maintained that he was serene in the conviction of his innocence.

“I don’t think the President is concerned at all,” she said. “He knows that he did nothing wrong and that there was no collusion and we’re going to continue focusing on things that Americans care about and that we can have an impact on.”
