White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is planning to leave the White House at the end of the year, CBS News reported Wednesday, citing sources in the administration. Sanders has reportedly told friends about her plans to depart the Trump administration. Deputy press secretary Raj Shah is also reportedly eyeing a White House exit, but has not yet decided on a departure date. Sanders did not deny the report in a tweet sent roughly an hour after the report was published. "Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future?

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says he sees some opportunities to work with President-elect Donald Trump and his administration. "I don't think it makes sense to say, 'No, we're not going to work in any way, in any form, with the Trump administration,' " Sanders said Thursday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "Trump has talked appropriately about a collapsing infrastructure on roads, bridges and water systems."

On May 26, 2015, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook sent an email to campaign chairman John Podesta titled “Sanders
