Day after Comey firing, Sean Spicer to miss White House briefing

Day after Comey firing, Sean Spicer to miss White House briefing

Spicer's commitment for monthly service occasionally pulls him away from his high-profile job as the public face of the Trump administration.

Sanders said Thursday that Trump would "love nothing more for this investigation to continue to its completion".

With the White House taking heat for promoting what were obvious lies, the president this morning tweeted that it is "not possible" for his surrogates to accurately convey the facts, and that he is considering ending press briefings in favor of sending written statements.

Sean Spicer has previously reported for duty with the Navy Reserve while serving in the White House.

"We have a diversity of opinions about many things, but I can confidently tell you that the majority - the vast majority of Federal Bureau of Investigation employees enjoyed a deep and positive connection to Director Comey", McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Reporters went looking for him.

In the termination letter to Comey, Trump thanked him for telling the president "three times" that he personally is not under investigation for collusion with Russian Federation during his 2016 campaign.

And the all-time No. 1 entry into his personal Hall of Shame was when he said: "You had someone as despicable as Hitler didn't even sink to using chemical weapons".

Later, Ms Sanders said, "We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity".

Two senior Democratic lawmakers on Friday asked the White House to turn over any recordings or other materials related to President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, alleging that the President's actions raised the possibility of "obstruction of justice".

President Donald Trump is reiterating his view that reports about collusion with the Russian government by members of his 2016 campaign are "fabricated".

"Today we will no doubt hear calls for a new investigation which could only serve to impede the current work being done", McConnell told the chamber.

Trump sent Comey a letter Tuesday firing him.

In an interview with Fox News's Jeanine Pirro on Friday, the president complained about hostility and unfair treatment at the hands of the media, suggesting for the second time in one day that he might just cancel the daily briefing - and adding that he might instead hold biweekly briefings himself. "The president, over the last several months, lost confidence in Director Comey".

James Comey placed himself in the media spotlight a year ago when, days before the 2016 election, he advised congress of fresh investigations into Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State.
