The Hill reports:
President Trump’s administration will cease answering questions from reporters about the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Wednesday.
In an off-camera press briefing, Spicer told reporters that any future questions about the investigation would be addressed by Trump’s personal lawyer. “We are focused on the president’s agenda and going forward all questions on these matters will be referred to outside counsel, Marc Kasowitz,” Spicer said Wednesday.
When pushed on what areas would be addressed by Trump’s lawyer, Spicer responded “all of it.” The abrupt change in policy comes just a day after Spicer’s first on-camera press briefing since Trump returned from his first overseas trip.
