Sean Spicer under fire during crucial week for Trump

Acting FBI Director Andrew Mc Cabe attends a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday on Capitol Hill. More

"If the propaganda destroy-Trump media--if they're gonna smear and slander him and his administration and his family and lie about facts and what he's done, why bother?"

I promised not to write more about President Trump's firing of James Comey, but what can I say? And the big question, one source said, is whether it's temporary or permanent. If the answer is no, Trump never taped Comey, then Spicer would have said that at the briefing forthrightly: Nope, never happened, heard it straight from the boss's mouth 20 minutes ago.

But this afternoon, Sean Spicer proved that he isn't gone yet, as he held his first press briefing since the termination of James Comey.

However, someone was clearly unhappy with the description of Spicer hiding in the bushes. "With respect to the president, as I mentioned, he's an activist president". "No, I don't believe, I don't know how that sequence went". At the White House she works in a small office next to Spicer's more spacious digs, down the hall from the Oval Office. "A disaster", said another, who added that the president himself thought it was "handled poorly".

"The president should immediately provide any such recordings to Congress or admit, once again, to have made a deliberately misleading - and in this case threatening - statement", Schiff added. The fickle nature of the job was evident in the briefing room Wednesday after Sanders high stakes post-Comey briefing went well. And she has done numerous appearances on television, during the campaign and at the White House.

Trump is specifically eyeing a crackdown on his communications team over anger at the number of leaks that have been spilling out of the White House. "What he needs are more folks with more defined roles. you're going to have issues that keep coming up like Russian Federation, like health care, like North Korea and he needs some specialty communicators who can tackle the issues of the day alongside his press secretary". "As most of you can attest, working day and night to get you the most up-to-date, accurate information at all times", Spicer said. Turn the lights off!
