Sean Spicer Is Reportedly Leaving The Briefing Room

Sean Spicer Is Reportedly Leaving The Briefing Room

President Donald Trump may finally confirm by the end of the week whether tapes of conversations between him and former FBI Director James Comey exist, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Monday.

"The White House press secretary is getting to a point, Brooke, where he is just getting kind of useless", Acosta said. Traditionally, the White House carves out separate roles and staffs for the press secretary and communications director. Spicer has become a household name for his combative press briefings, but they have become less frequent recently.

On May 12, three days after he fired Comey, Trump said the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director better hope that there are no "tapes" of their conversations before Comey starts leaking to the press.

"I don't know why everybody is going along with this", a frustrated Acosta vented to CNN host Brooke Baldwin. "It just doesn't make any sense to me", he added.

Francis referred to the "devastating fire" at the end of his Sunday prayer, delivered from his studio window overlooking St. He said it was vital to focus on the prevention of new fires, amid a continuing heat wave, strong winds and lack of rain.

The White House press secretary is reportedly searching for candidates for both his own job and the White House communications director position, which was vacated by Mike Dubke last month. The administration has yet to name a replacement to take over his duties as press secretary, though they have indicated they are very fond of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, according to Fox News' John Roberts.

"This isn't how we do things in this country but for whatever reason we're all going along with it", Acosta said.

"That's the White House behind me". "If they can't give us the answers to the questions on camera or where we can record the audio, they are basically pointless at this point". "And there are days that I'll decide that the President's voice should be the one that speaks, and iterate his priorities".
