White House Likely to Comment on Comey Tapes by End of Week

Sean Spicer

CNN's Jim Acosta chided the White House and Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Monday after he said reporters were prohibited from recording video or audio of a press gaggle on Monday. "And it just feels like we are slowly but surely being dragged into a new normal in this country where the president of the United Stats is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions". Neither is Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Fox News host who has often been mentioned as a possible replacement for Spicer. The changes will begin to roll out in the near future, the White House indicated. Reporters were simply told "TBD" on Sunday night.

When asked when the Trump administration would release a statement about the recordings, Spicer stated, "So it's possible that we have an answer to that by the end of this week". Monday's briefing - the White House termed it a "gaggle", a more informal set-up, though it took place in a format much like a briefing - was likewise off-camera, with audio broadcasting forbidden. Neither Ingraham, Martosko, nor Spicer immediately responded to The Daily Caller's requests for comment.

"There must be collective action or else the stonewalling will continue", Acosta added. Many journalists were alarmed as the Trump campaign blacklisted more than half a dozen news organizations during the presidential campaign, but there was no serious, concerted response.

He still built a six-shot lead through 36 holes, despite hitting his tee shot into the ocean on the 18th hole and salvaging bogey. He had a six-shot lead at the turn but hit only three fairways on the nine and missed a 4-foot par putt on the 18th for a 70.

The Trump administration telegraphed changes like these back in December, when White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said his team was considering "a lot of different ways that things can be done". "It's not even like we're covering a White House anymore, with Kellyanne Conway and Omarosa in the briefing room off to the side of Sean, refusing to be on camera".

"Spicer should be elevated and if he's not, I would not blame him for leaving", a White House official told Politico.
