Spicer refers Russia investigation questions to Trump's outside attorney

Sean Spicer isn't taking your questions.

As the room erupted in shouts and sarcastic comments, Spicer smiled briefly but ploughed on to the next question.

A reporter at Wednesday's press gaggle asked about the tweet, which was deleted later Wednesday morning.

Running against Mrs Clinton for the presidency, Mr Trump repeatedly criticised his rival for using a non-government email account while she was secretary of state.

The equally confusing White House explanation was too late to head off a some mercilessly fun at the 45th president's expense.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer fared a little better in the poll. He is particularly irked by the way the media interpreted his absence from Trump's visit with the Pope as the president snubbing him.

New NFL rules shorten overtime and provide leniency on celebrations

Still, Kushner should have disclose the contacts, but nobody knows if he had been told if he should or should not disclose them, Duffy said.

"Our job, we are focused on the president's agenda and all, going forward all questions on these matters will be referred to outside counsel Marc Kasowitz". On an inquiry about the president's views on climate change, a subject of discussion for some time, he said he would have to check with the president.

When Spicer accused the media of propagating fake and false stories during Tuesday's briefing, he provided a single inaccurate tweet about a minor story as evidence then refused to offer more examples. But when it comes to communication, policy details need to be clear, he said.

In creating a separate entity to handle the Russian Federation fallout, the White House hopes existing staffers can return their focus to executing the President's agenda, which has largely stalled as aides and advisers work to respond to the Russian Federation story.

As reports swirl that Trump is planning a further shakeup of the White House communications team following the resignation of comms director Mike Dubke, the short briefings could be a sign that Spicer is next on the way out. Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is bring considered to play a role, and has been spotted at the White House on several occasions over the past week.

It's possible that in the future, there will be fewer press briefings led by White House communications staff, and instead there will be more press conferences with President Trump himself.
