Sarah Huckabee Sanders is set to field questions from the media at the White House’s daily press briefing Thursday.

Sanders, the White House principal deputy press secretary, is filling in for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who is reportedly fulfilling his Navy duties at the Pentagon. It’s her third time filling in for Spicer at the briefing, and she will also do so again Friday.

She took over for Spicer on Wednesday and answered many questions that revolved around the unexpected firing of FBI Director James Comey. Thursday’s briefing figures to be no different.

Sanders said Wednesday that Comey had committed “atrocities” while investigating presidential nominee Hillary Clinton‘s private email server.

“I think also having a letter like the one that he (Trump) received, and having that conversation (with Rosenstein) that outlines the basic atrocities in circumventing the chain of command in the Department of Justice,” Sanders said.

She added that Trump was considering letting go of Comey since he was elected president, continuously repeating that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions had “lost confidence” in Comey.

She said that Trump made his final decision Tuesday after having additional talks with Rosenstein and Sessions on Monday.

Sanders is the daughter of former presidential candidate, Arkansas governor and political analyst Mike Huckabee. Her husband is a Republican political consultant who worked for many high-profile campaigns.
