Just a few moments ago Sarah Sanders released a statement that read “Emmet Flood will be joining the White House Staff to represent the President and the administration against the Russia witch hunt.” We have become inured to hearing the President refer to the Special Counsel probe in this way. Seeing the Press Secretary matter-of-factly do so in an official statement marks another stage in the President’s open war with Mueller and, frankly, the rule of law.
