Sarah Sanders and Raj Shah planning to leave White House

Sarah Sanders and Raj Shah planning to leave White House

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shot down a report Wednesday that said she was planning to leave the White House at the end of the year, saying she was "honored" to work with President Trump and "loves" her job. CBS News White House reporter Jacqueline Alemany joins CBSN to talk about her exclusive report.

"I was at my daughter's year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my "plans to leave the WH" without even talking to me", she added.

Not to be picky... but that's not an explicit denial of the report.

However, Sanders disputed the story and said CBS never asked her if she was planning on leaving. Sanders and Shah did not respond to repeated request for comment, according to CBS.
