Sean Spicer Threatens To Sic Cops On Reporter Who Texted To Ask About His White House Note-Taking

Axios reports:

The Watergate resonance of the Bob Mueller probe rose this week with a CNN report that the special counsel has details of wiretaps of “former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election.”

Now we can tell you about another potential honey pot for Mueller. Former colleagues of Sean Spicer tell Axios that he filled “notebook after notebook” during meetings at the Republican National Committee, later at the Trump campaign, and then at the White House.

When Spicer worked at the RNC, he was said to have filled black books emblazoned with the party’s seal. Spicer was so well-known for his copious notes that underlings joked about him writing a tell-all.

When the author of the above-linked report reached out to Spicer to ask about the notebooks, he got this response: “From a legal standpoint I want to be clear: Do not email or text me again. Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities.”

  • Treant

    But I thought he developed a sense of humor post-Emmys!

    Nope, still the same lying piece of shit. Go away, Sean. And realize that you may now be a “private citizen,” but you still can expect to receive queries about what you did as an official of the White House. Good luck with getting the cops involved.

  • Tawreos

    Can’t wait to see him try that when someone reaches out with a subpoena.

    Someone’s cranky!!!

      Well, if no one in infotainment would give you a multi-million dollar steady gig contract and you had to whore around, er, go around the country making speeches, you might be cranky, too,

        Bitch, that was the first lady…mind your tongue.

          which one, the clown or the zombie?

    • grada3784

      It’s in the bushes where he left it.

  • crewman

    From a legal standpoint I want to be clear: Do not email or text me again. Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities.

    What does this mean? The only thing I can think of is he is going to say he’s being harassed, which I don’t think the police would typically even respond to.

    • Treant

      Honestly. “I’m a former representative of the White House and a reporter is harassing me by asking for information on an important issue!”

      Cops: “Uh…and?”

      • bambinoitaliano

        Damn it! I just appeared on the Emmy! Don’t you know how I am?!!!!

        Uhmmmm, cops won’t give a damn if there’s no threat to personal safety. I guess he could get a restraining order, but the hearing on the permanent injunction would be kinda interesting.

    • bambinoitaliano

      Yeah, from the legal stand point of view I would have sic police on my email spammers. That pesky Nigerian prince should be carted off to the jail already.

    • Randy503

      I always laugh when people threaten that, as though there is some law out there.

    • Gerry Fisher

      It means, “Don’t harass me.” It’s an effective communication used to shut someone down. It can be used to obtain a restraining order. If the restraining order is violated, THEN the police can arrest the person. It’s the first step down that road.

      • Smokey

        To get the initial restraining order wouldn’t the reporter actually have to harass Spicer by like, texting him 100 times or calling his cell repeatedly? One text, especially to a public figure, doesn’t seem to constitute a basis for harassment.

        • LatrinaDiBucca

          But if the number somehow became public, and millions of internet reporters started texing him, one time each…day and night, night and day, 24/7, 365…….would they, collectively, be guilty of harassment or subject to restraining order?

          Yes, yes, Spice Girl, waste a court’s time getting one million restraining orders.

    • LatrinaDiBucca

      But will he say that to Mueller?

  • lymis

    There’s an email police?

    • Lars Littlefield

      Yeah. They hide under our beds. But if you leave out cheese and crackers for them they usually don’t bother us.

      • agcons

        That makes more sense than anything Spicer says.

      • Tawreos

        I need to pick up some cheese and crackers on the way home then, because I think i found a way to get a date tonight.

        • jerry

          Let me know if it works. Sounds easier than the napkin soaked in chloroform.

    Totally normal response to an innocuous question that in no way suggests that Spicey is desperately seeking keep people from turning over rocks and finding all of the invertebrates living underneath.

  • skyweaver

    Appropriate authorities, meanwhile, reached for comment said, “Er, uh, this isn’t illegal, Sean.”

    • Gustav2

      “You are a public asshole, ummm, figure, now.”

      • bambinoitaliano

        Yup. Appearing on late night talk show and Emmy makes an open season for paparazzi to pester him. It’s the premium for wanting to be a celebrity.

            Pumpkin pie is merely a mediocre vehicle for whipped cream.

            As the bearer of a significant mustache, I reject all whipped cream. I do not eat air, and I do not like clots between my nose and my lip.

          • Lars Littlefield

            I agree. I also do not care for whipped cream.

          • Lars Littlefield

            Have to down vote you for those fightin’ words.

          • PickyPecker

            Sorry. IMO, pumpkin pie is disgusting. Pumpkin bars, pumpkin-spice lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins fall into that category as well.
            Unfortunately, we are entering the last quarter of the year where it seems everyone expects (and in some cases insist) that I have to ‘try’ their recipie. Like somehow it is not going to taste like pumpkin. GAH!
            My usual response is ‘if it’s so good, how come you don’t make it and enjoy it all year round, eh?’

          • Alex in Idaho

            Steer clear of Trader Joe’s in October! It’s a store-wide pumpkin fest

          • PickyPecker

            You can practically smell it when the door slides open. yuk.

          • Alex in Idaho

            Pumpkin has really jumped the shark there. I’m waiting for pumpkin-coated bacon (like the chocolate-covered stuff) or pumpkin-infused wine.

          • PickyPecker

            I’ve already encountered pumpkin-spice wine. Was a forced attempt on me at a dinner party last autumn. Can’t tell you what it tastes like as I refused the pour.

          • Alex in Idaho

            (bleah!)

          • Steverino

            Eeewwww…..

          • Lars Littlefield

            I just don’t get the appeal of Trader Joe’s. I’ve tried. I’ve bought their organic ketchup, prepared mustards, what used to be two buck chuck and I’ve always been disappointed. I’ve been specially disappointed with their produce.

          • Lars Littlefield

            I hear that. I love pumpkin pie. I don’t like all this faux pumpkin spice shit either. Just the pie or sweet potato pie made in the same fashion. This faux shit isn’t even close to the mixture of ground ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg that is the standard spice mix for p. pie. But pumpkins, especially pie pumpkins, are just as good or better than acorn and butternut squash, which are two squashes I love. I also have some nice banana squash which is delicious in January and everything is frozen/dead. Deslish!

          • Lars Littlefield

            Two water sources. I have a six-inch flowing artesian well that’s also piped directly into the house. And there is a year-round creek on my property from which I can divert 10 shares of irrigation water (an hour per share, twice a week) during the growing season. I’ve also got a pond at the low end of the property that collects all the irrigation run off and when full, then overflows back into the creek via a drainage ditch ditch. It’s all very bucolic, with dramatic vistas of red rock formations and the Manti Lasalle mountains to the east.

            Yup. I do live in a desert basin. And I’m surrounded with bright orange and pink sands. But we also have plenty of topsoil thanks to the eons of riparian drainage through the valley.

      • That is freaking amazing and gorgeous!

        I’ve only gardened in Indiana and Alaska, so living in the low desert is going to be a steep learning curve for me.

        • Mike_in_the_Tundra

          Roses do really well out here.

          • Really? That’s interesting, I’d of thought it would be to hot for them. Rose plants here we come!

        • Treant

          Salvia are bred for and live in semi-arid conditions in Texas (that’s where they evolved, as a relative to the cardinal flower).

          Red, blue, white, and a weak purple are available. During drought here, they may require water once a week once established.

        • Alex in Idaho

          Not sure where you are, but when I moved here (high desert) from Indiana, I was amazed at the native flowering plants growing out in the desert. Only issue is, most of them are rather small plants. You might check around for a local Native Plant Society; we have one here that does a big sale of natives as a fundraiser in April, and their prices can’t be beat.

          • I’m in Queen Creek Az.

          • I’ll look into that! We would rather have native plants, or at least plants that are happy living in an arid, hot environment. Thanks for the info!

        I want to live at your house. I’ll earn my keep. I’ll pull weeds and mow the lawn.

        • Treant

          You have to put out as well.

          馃檪

          ETA: Actually, the weeds mostly take care of themselves, and the mower is a robot that does everything herself.

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            Okay. Whatever it takes.

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        What are the flowers making the huge splash of red on the left?

        • Treant

          Red salvia, Salvia splendens. Their seven times great-grandparents were a combination of Red Hot Sally and Flare, but over the generations they’ve been crossed with other cultivars, and I’ve been selecting for taller, redder, and more heavily flowering plants.

          So while technically, this cultivar only exists in three gardens in Pennsylvania, any red salvia looks pretty damn good right off the shelf.

          • Dreaming Vertebrate

            Gorgeous! Do they overwinter, or do you collect the seeds each fall?

          • Treant

            Seeds. They die at first heavy frost. I have an envelope of at least a thousand seeds right now.

            I’ll start 150, and destroy them back to about 50 with the characteristics I’m looking for. The remainder are backup just in case I have a failure, and recently, it’s just that I destroy the weaker plant (or just choose one that’s not as well centered in the cell). I’ve bred out all the undesirable characteristics, and this is now a stable, open-pollenated cultivar.

            I did the same with the blue flowers next to that–another salvia, Salvia farinacea, or Mealy-Cup Sage. They’re a stable cultivar that’s a combination of mostly Victoria Blue and Rhea, but blooms better than either. They’re more durable and often open-seed in the gardens.

          • PickyPecker

            Have you ever considered the addition of a strong purple in with your reds? If you haven’t tried it, Trachelium caeruleum is a beautiful and underused mid-range selection. You can get seeds fairly easily and germination rates are usually quite high.
            Butterflies love it and it also makes a spectacular cutting flower.

          • Treant

            I have both Thomas A. Edison dahlia and Mini Marine Heliotrope. I did something wrong with the heliotrope, though; it was only supposed to be 10″ tall. Mine is closer to 24″.

            Trachelium caeruleum looks similar in theme to the heliotrope. What does it smell like? The Mini Marine is bred to be a high-scent plant, and smells like a fresh cherry pie. Strongly.

            It’s actually one of the only scented plants in the garden.

          • Treant

            I can’t edit the below any longer to add a photo, so I’ll do it here. The blue on the pedestal is ageratum, the purple below it and on the left is heliotrope.

            There’s a stand of it on the back, patio-side garden as well where you can smell and see it when you’re out there. It’s very hard to raise from seed, so out of the 12 I got 4. Next year I know to seed much heavier, which I can do since I’ve collected 10,000 seeds from the stuff. 馃檪

            ETA: The purple/white in front is a Harlequin dahlia, a dwarf heavy-blooming collarette. The tall blue stuff is my blue salvia cultivar. The marigold in the pot is dying. 馃檪

            Do they attract hummingbirds? My S. coccinea does, but they’re somewhat scrawny-looking compared to your Salvia.

          • Treant

            By the pantload. And the 7x g’grandparents of these were also scrawny; the Red Hot Sally is a severely dwarfed plant. It’s just breeding over time.

          • Alex in Idaho

            What a cool hobby. Though I raise almost all my plants from seeds, I never thought of deliberately crossing and breeding them. Bravo to you!

          • Treant

            It’s fun and easy, I let the bees do most of the work, and simply destroy the sports and things that didn’t interbreed.

    • Tawreos

      Because the only joke he knows is the one he worked for.

      • zhera

        Personal favorite theory:

        Spicer has already given all the notebooks to Mueller, but he doesn’t want anyone to know that. Reporters who ask questions might catch him off guard and he’ll let it slip what he’s done.

        Reaction from Spicer fits perfectly with this theory.

      • Rob NYNY

        Conceivable, there could be anti-cyberbullying or anti-stalking laws that are implicated, and Spiser is setting up the predicate. But I am not an expert.

        • John30013

          That would be a high hurdle for Spicey, since he was(and still is) a public figure and the reporter is inquiring about a matter of public interest.

          • Rob NYNY

            As I say, I am not an expert, but you may be conflating defamation laws (where being a public figure changes the legal analysis) and stalking/bullying laws (where being a public figure generally does not change the legal analysis — for example, David Letterman, Jackie Onassis).

            And I am not saying that it will work. But he may be trying to establish the predicate for such laws.

          • Rob NYNY

          • John30013

            My response was about stalking; I think Spicey world have a hard time convincing anyone that he’s being “stalked” or “harassed” by a reporter who is simply asking for information, especially about an issue of current public interest. Certainly this incident doesn’t rise to that level.

      Sean said “appropriate authorities”, not “police”. Isn’t it more likely that he means the Russian mafia? They would be much more effective at silencing reporters.

      • Christian Abel

        The Hitlery mafia would be more efficient

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Hello Police. Help! A Journalist is exercising his First Amendment right and wants to do his job. I want him arrested.

    What do you mean no crime has been committed?

    These assholes are getting nervous. Good! *evil laugh*

  • Professor Barnhardt

    He can’t find the “block sender” button?

    • Tawreos

      Well it is right next to the integrity button so, no

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    This is why we don’t normalized fascists.

  • JWC

    Any Mafia boss knows enuff not to trust a note taker If he does its a “one copy” for your eys only or its a ride to a secluded dump sight

      Something I heard but forget where – a case where shredded notes were sent to Afghan rug weavers to be reconstructed and they did it. Anyone know what that was?

  • Elsewhere1010

    “Have that reporter arrested for getting my cell number and texting me a question.”

    Is that now a death penalty offense?

    • Rebecca Gardner

      Apparently he’s known Sean for years. He wrote, ” (I have known Spicer and his wife for more than a dozen years).”

    • Natty Enquirer

      It’s a matter for the appropriate authorities 鈥 Fox & Friends.

      • Gianni

        That’s true. Then they can continue how the Libruls and haters are trying their best to bring down this President and his administration. This President who has done so much for the Murrcan people.

    • RoFaWh

      No. The accused is sentenced to editing the collected speeches of Donald Jamjar Trump; when that’s finished, it’s the collected writings of the same jerk.

  • Randy503

    People think there is some law that they can invoke that says that if you say “don’t text me or email me” that you can be thrown in jail for it. Of course there isn’t. Sure, if your emails rise to the level of harassment, perhaps you can get a court order, but that’s a very high bar.

    But the reporter can email him and text him all he wants. And Spicer knows that and doesn’t care.

  • LeeCMH

    Sour grapes.

  • Christ. What an asshole.

  • 2guysnamedjoe

    A simple “Thank you for asking, but no,” would have sufficed. Going all appropriate authorities ‘n’ stuff on the reporter was just rude.

    • Renfield

      He’s a crybaby. A joke.

  • Daveed_WOW

    Jeez. The whole Trump Klub is doing this wrong. He knows that was a suspicious comment, right?

  • Michael White

    What does he expect having hooked his wagon to the orange turd? I have no fucks to give about him or anyone from this maladministration who ends up with no career, looses spouses, or ends up in jail. They made choices live with them

    • JWC

      Ithot he was pretty sick hitting Talk shows and the Emmy’s more or less assuming all was forgiven and he was back No you lying sack of shit It don’t work that way

    • YES! As my husband tells his SPED students, “Choices have consequences!”

  • CB

    Why do I see a self-righteous toddler whining, “I’m telling!” when I read this?

  • bkmn

    Spicey is going to ride that podium right into prison, unless he tells Mueller what he needs to know

    Bernie should not be on that stage.

    • Gustav2

      NO SHIT. He is a party of one.

      • Lars Littlefield

        Bernie is not a Democrat. He’s an independent spoiler. Fuck Bernie!

        • xzargo

          Good Job, Comrade!

    • No, he should not. The stupid ass doesn’t realize that *right now* is not the time to give the GOPers their “it’s OUR repeal or Bernie’s socialist takeover” talking point.

      There’s a time to play offense and a time for defense. When the Dems actually control a branch of gov’t, that’s the time.

      Also, Bernie is no Democrat.

      • CottonBlimp

        Medicare for all is a popular subject and it shows the people that have legitimate problems with their insurance that Democrats, unlike Republicans, actually have solutions to their woes.

  • Jack

    Oh, the *appropriate* authorities.

  • Personally, I’m guessing Sean is pissed because his de-wraithing and reputation rehabilitation attempts have fallen flat. None of the five cable news networks wants to hire him as a paid ‘expert commentator.’ And about 75% of the reaction to his stunt at the Emmys was derision and disgust.

    Moron doesn’t realize he needs to do as all disgraced Republicans do: Apply for the usual Wingnut Welfare available at any of DC’s hundreds of conservative lobbying and think-tank firms, then wait a few years after Donald’s impeachment and possible criminal conviction before emerging from the shadows once more as a purported expert.

  • Ninja0980

    Maybe the Emmys shouldn’t rushed to normalize this asshole so soon.

  • BostonBud

    well, I’m thinking if he is already involved in the investigation then giving a reporter information that is essential to the investigation could be iffy ground especially if the law enforcement agents are not allowing him to cooperate with outside sources.

    • Could be. Or possibly his attorney is just competent enough to tell him not to talk to reporters but not enough to give him an appropriate line to use. Ain’t that hard either: “On the advice of my attorney, I’m not available to make any public comments at this time, sorry.”

      • JAKvirginia

        Yes!!! And where I come from we used to call that good manners. Legal ass-covering, true, but one need not be rude or threatening to make a point. Thank you, Becca.

      • LesbianTippingHabits


        And we all know this about Donald Trump:
        You get the attorneys you [don’t] pay for.

  • Danny & Andrew

    6 months as press secretary and he still doesn’t know how to make a statement to the press…..WOW!

  • kareemachan

    Huh. Who would these authorities be? Dementors?

  • Dagoril

    “Officer! That man is committing acts of *journalism* over there! The horror!!”

  • Gianni

    Sean, are you going to try to hide those notebooks from Mueller’s investigation?

  • BearEyes

    admission of evidence – has he destroyed that yet? A reporter wants to know.
    spicey knows there’s some dirt there – if those books still exist………

  • EdA

    “I’m gonna tell my daddy that you may want to be mean to me.”

    Now that Spicer has de facto confirmed the existence of his notebooks, it will be interesting to see if there are the equivalent of Rosemary Woods’ 8-1/2 minutes of infamy.

    • wayne

      I saw a cartoon in Time Magazine of a record storefront. A sign in the window advertised “Hum along with Dick and Bob, with the amazing Rosemary Woods at the keyboards.” Wet my damn pants.

  • Hryflex

    Good luck with that, Spicey. Twit.
