Trump threatens to cancel briefings for 'sake of accuracy'

The latest Spicer meme insane started after the Washington Post reported the secretary and his staff "stood among bushes" while being questioned about President Trump firing former FBI Director James Comey.

Spicer said earlier Friday that he occasionally struggles to huddle with Trump during the president's "very robust schedule".

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.

Sanders drew fire from Trump opponents for trying to move beyond the investigation, when so many Democrats were calling for a special independent prosecutor. "In those cases, we do our best to follow up with you".

The statement was a surprising admission from the White House that Comey's sudden dismissal on Tuesday may have an effect on the Russian Federation probe.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Tuesday that Rosenstein drafted the memo raising concerns about Comey on his own accord.

"Yes, that's true", Trump said.

"We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity", said deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders, referring to the FBI's probe into Moscow's interference in last year's election.

"Doing away with briefings would reduce accountability, transparency, and the opportunity for Americans to see that, in the US system, no political figure is above being questioned", he said.
