Spicer Hasn't Asked Trump If Russians Meddled in 2016 Campaign

"We'll work with you".

Fox News reported this week Spicer is about to be promoted to a position that would oversee both the press and communications teams at the White House, a move that would leave a vacancy behind the mic.

Fallon introduced a fake clip of what the White House is looking for in a press secretary.

"Does the president share those views?" the reporter asked.

"I have not sat down and asked him about his specific reaction to them, so I'd be glad to touch base and get back to you", he said. We'll continue to have those discussions internally.

Spicer was unable to say whether or not anyone in the White House has seen language on the Senate's version.

In testimony before Congress earlier this month, former FBI Director James Comey testified that there was no doubt in his mind that Russian Federation was behind the hacking.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer takes a question at a press briefing at the White House on June 20, 2017.

Asked about the changes, Spicer said Trump had spoken before cameras during an Oval Office meeting with the president of Panama and would later make remarks in front of the media at an event with technology leaders. Instead, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders merely indicated in a statement: "We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation".

Mike Dubke resigned as White House communications director last month after a series of legal and political threats began to torment the administration.

Spicer also defended the decision to hold off-camera, non-recorded briefings, as he did yesterday. But there is no massive White House shake-up coming, it's not going to happen.

Ingraham was among several candidates reportedly under consideration for succeeding Spicer in a possible shake-up in the White House's communications operation. He very quickly became a late-night target, led by "Saturday Night Live", which spoofed his press conferences by having him played by Melissa McCarthy.
