Lewandowski: 'No White House shake-up coming'


"We have a tremendous respect for the First Amendment, our ability and your ability to do your job, to report and seek out ideas", Spicer told the White House press corps.

It's also being reported that Sean Spicer may be replaced by one or more press secretaries given President Trump's extremely short attention span and temper.

However, when Spicer was missing from the White House press briefings for a long time in May, and deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, covered for him, she discovered how reporters missed Spicer. Whether Bannon is speaking for himself or the president wasn't clear, but many weren't amused.

Pressed again for an answer - given that the heads of multiple agencies in the intelligence community, including former FBI Director James Comey, have said Russians definitely interfered in the election - he had a similar response. Tuesday morning, amid criticism, an on-camera briefing with Spicer was announced.

Spicer said he had "seen the reports" from the intelligence community concluding that the Russian government ordered an influence campaign to interfere with the USA election, but that he has not asked Trump about his views. The Trump Administration is insulating itself from the media and by extension the American people by refusing to allow video and audio recordings of the White House press briefings.

"While you guys will always advocate for more transparency and access, I think we've done a very good job of not just providing opportunities here at the daily briefing, but also making ourselves available as a staff nearly 24 hours a day", Mr Spicer added.


Lewandowski said the White House is looking to give Spicer more help, but said insinuations it is part of a larger shake-up were overblown. "We'll work with you.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said that without a doubt, the Russians -" the reporter said.

"I think we have done a very good job of not just providing opportunities here at a daily briefing, but also making ourselves available as a staff nearly 20, 24 hours a day when it comes down to it", Spicer said.

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

Candidates for the role of press secretary and communications director reportedly include Fox News personality Laura Ingraham and Daily Mail editor David Martosko, respectively, according to Politico.
