LIVE VIDEO: Trump Shakes Up Press Briefing, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster To Do Damage Control

An emergency shakeup for today’s schedule:

White House officials hastily changed their plans to brief reporters Tuesday amid controversy over reports that President Trump shared highly classified information with Russian officials, opting to have national security adviser H.R. McMaster speak publicly rather than press secretary Sean Spicer.

Although Spicer and McMaster were slated to brief reporters together at a televised event on Tuesday afternoon, the White House announced that McMaster would conduct the televised briefing hours earlier and Spicer would, instead, speak to reporters at the White House out of the sight of cameras.
