White House spokesman dodges comment on Trump's tweets

His remarks follow allegations from his boss this week that former President Barack Obama illegally ordered Mr Trump to be "wiretapped".

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said President Donald Trump is "extremely concerned" about WikiLeaks' publication of Central Intelligence Agency documents, though he declined to confirm the authenticity of the leaked materials.

Reuters reported Wednesday afternoon that USA intelligence and law enforcement officials have been aware since late previous year of a CIA security breach that led to the WikiLeaks document dump.

CNN's Jim Acosta on Thursday called out White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for slamming the Democrats for supposedly ramming Obamacare through Congress while ignoring the incredibly fast timeline the GOP has set up for itself with its replacement bill. "There's obviously a lot of concern".

And while Press Secretary Sean Spicer refrained from comment on the actual content of the dumped documents, saying that it was not the White House's policy to "give such leaks credibility", there was one question he did choose to answer.


"When you said no reason to believe, it was I'm not aware there's an investigation", Brennan eventually asked. "The other is an investigation".

While the Federal Bureau of Investigation is conducting a wide-ranging counter-intelligence investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election, there is no public evidence that Mr Trump is a target.

"We must insure access to capital", Trump said.

I'm still waiting on Trump news today but that's not going to stop me from posting about our President.
