Is Sarah Huckabee Sanders At Risk Of Going To Jail?......

On practically a daily basis she lies from her podium in the WH to shield Trump. Could she wind up in jail for that? Or would she plead that she was just doing her job?

If she has any semblance of decency - she should probably resign from her job. I believe she has kids. If she is at risk of winding up in jail - she's not much of a mother if she continues lying for Trump.

She wouldn't have gotten this far in life if it were.

But you never know...

Maybe she's already cooperating....

18. Not unless she was actively involved in a conspiracy to obstruct justice.

No one seriously suggested Nixon's press secretary be charged with a crime for repeating the falsehoods
that the administration fed him.

But if she's part of meetings where "obstruction of justice" is being planned and she's participating in the planning
she could be at risk.

20. No

Government officials generally enjoy immunity from anything that stems from their official duties provided they did not violate Constitutional or statutory law. Realistically, the only way she could face charges is if she lied under oath or to investigators.

27. She will end up in jail, you are wrong

 

Once tRump is removed we will have tribunals, Ms Huckabee will be charged along with the rest of the trump administration with treason.
These people are the modern day equivalent of the nazis, they will be dealt with harshly.

14. No, since she is not lying under oath

most of us would take a reputation hit that might put us in the poorhouse, but not her. She'll get a book deal or an assignment at a think tank.

Lying is not a crime unless you do it under oath or to law enforcement. Let's stay rational here.

If they can prove she knew of crimes, and she went out there to misslead she very well could be a co conspirator.

23. If she is a witness to any alleged crime

She could be called to testify. If she lies under oath, she would be guilty of perjury, and perhaps obstruction of justice.

Lying to the press corps in and of itself is not criminal. It's antithetical to the Constitution and everything we stand for, but unfortunately, that was the USA of the past. The new USA allows for 2 realities, regardless of verity.

24. If she called for someone, like an ESPN reporter, to be fired, she could be

indicted. It's a federal crime for an official to influence some one's job for partisan reasons.

Of course, the president may not be covered by the statute.

It was based on what she said, not her political party affiliation.
