Watch live: Sanders holds White House news briefing

Oct. 31 (UPI) — White House press secretary Sarah Sanders will hold a press briefing Tuesday afternoon — her second since the indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

On Monday, Sanders tried to steer the news conference toward Republican plans to reform the nation’s tax code. Instead, reporters mostly asked Sanders questions relating to the indictment of Manafort and business associate Rick Gates, the guilty plea of campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and special counsel Robert Mueller‘s special probe into possible Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Sanders said the indictments and guilty plea have “nothing to do with the President’s campaign or campaign activity.

“The real collusion scandal, as we’ve said several times before, has everything to do with the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS, and Russia,” she said.

Sanders’ news conference Tuesday is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. EDT.
