White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was bound to have a busy day at work Tuesday, after federal prosecutors raided the office and hotel room of President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen the day before. But even amid the deluge of questions from reporters anxious to learn more about the White House's response to the matter, an inquiry from CNN correspondent April Ryan stood out.
