Spicer: WH Referring 'All Matters' on Russian Federation to Outside Counsel

Spicer: WH Referring 'All Matters' on Russian Federation to Outside Counsel

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday referred all questions related to the FBI's Russian Federation investigation from now on to President Trump's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz. The way Spicer sees it, the sources close to him said, is that many reporters are obsessed with palace intrigue and minutiae, and are waging a smear campaign against the president.

"The most important thing is, you have to have people who surround the president who are on his agenda", he said.

Lewandowski did not say if he has been contacted by Trump or anyone on his staff about returning.

More attorneys with deep experience in Washington investigations are expected to be added, along with crisis communication experts, to help the White House in the weeks ahead.

In a post on his Twitter account Wednesday morning, Trump said, "My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this".

Many people online called for Griffin to be jailed.

President Trump has reportedly been talking with former campaign advisers, Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, about taking on formal roles, as well as the creation of the crisis-communications war room.

The tweet immediately went viral and became one of the president's more popular posts before it was taken down after almost six hours online. "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???" One user joked that "covfefe" is already a popular name for babies in states that voted for Trump.

Trump has repeatedly and angrily insisted that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation, and has decried reports about the matter as false.

Other potential staff changes could be in the works, according to Axios News, which first reported Dubke's departure, including fewer on-camera news briefings by Spicer, the White House press secretary.

During the briefing, Spicer is asked that since that former FBI director James Comey is prepared to testify that President Trump pressured him to drop the investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn, "Did the president engage in obstruction of justice in repeated meetings with James Comey?"
