White House: Press Briefing Highlights

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press briefing today, the highlights below

When asked about President Trump’s tweet that Attorney General Jeff Session’s should “stop” special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation she said, “it was an opinion not an order.”

She opened the presser with an announcement that the Treasury Department will sanction two Turkish government officials who played the leading role in arresting Pastor Andrew Brunson

CNN — The Turkish government officials are Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gul and Turkey Minister of Interior Suleyman Soylu. The two ministers will have “any assets and properties under US jurisdiction blocked and US persons will be prohibited from engaging in financial transactions with the minsters.”

Asked about what President Trump plans to do about the “release of 3D-Printed Gun Blueprints” she answers, “The Department of Justice made a deal without the presidents approval on those regards, the President is glad the effort was delayed to give more time to review the issue and this administration supports decades old legislature on the books that prohibits the ownership of a wholly plastic gun.

Time: A federal Judge in Seattle on Tuesday evening blocked the midnight release of the of Cody Wilson’s blueprints as The News Blender reported, and Sanders mentions the DOJ settled a years long case with Wilson, that allowed the blueprints to be made available.

As a Bonus she is asked about the creation of Space Force, the Department of Defense, has rejected plans to create the Space Force, missing yet another deadline to turn over plans to congress about what it’s creation would look like. She answers, “We are continuing to work with the Department of Defense to figure out and determine the best way forward, something the President feels strongly about. We are going to work are team there, and figure out the best solution.”

The above video is cued to the Space Force answer, but it is the whole press briefing.
