April Ryan bluntly questions Sarah Huckabee Sanders over whether Trump might resign

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.

"With all of this turmoil, particularly last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?" asked Ryan. Sanders shot back: "No, and I think that's an absolutely ridiculous question."

"It's not a ridiculous question," said Ryan. Sanders offered no further comment and moved on.

Ryan, who has sparred with Sanders before, first questioned why the FBI would need a search warrant to seize documents from Cohen if the Trump team has been fully cooperative with investigators. Federal agents seized thousands of documents from Cohen in the Monday raid, reportedly including records related to payments made to two women in exchange for their silence regarding alleged affairs with the president. Trump has denied both affairs and called the raid "disgraceful." Watch the exchange between Ryan and Sanders below. Summer Meza
