White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has had enough of the Media’s coverage of Russia Wiretapping. He goes off in a new interview with Fox News.
The Hill reported: White House press secretary Sean Spicer blasted the media for its coverage of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and President Trump’s claim that the previous administration wiretapped him.
During an interview on Fox News Sunday, Spicer said it wasn’t covered when officials briefed on the Russian involvement in the election came out and said there was “no involvement to their knowledge between the Trump campaign and Russia.”
“Not one of them ran a story. They all sat by no matter what they said, no matter how many people had been briefed by the FBI, they continued to push this false narrative,” Spicer said of the media.
“It’s amazing how many times the mainstream media continues to bring up the story that has been debunked by every single intelligence official and member of Congress who has been briefed by the FBI.”
He said the mainstream media holds on to the narrative that there was contact between the Trump campaign and Russia because they realize “it clearly gets them some kind of coverage of ratings.”
“Then, when it comes to the other side of the aisle, they ignore the reporting that’s been done by outlets, by the New York Times and others, about the wire – the surveillance that occurred in the 2016 election,” Spicer said.
