On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated he thinks President Trump should listen to his lawyers, and he believes the president’s attorneys are telling him to let the special counsel and FBI do their job before the president does anything that goes far. Spicer added, “the quickest way to wrap this up is to let them do their job and let the pieces fall where they may.”
Spicer said, “I think what the president has to, hopefully, be reassured by his counsel is that, so far, this is not about him, this has never been about him, and that his job is to make sure that he stays focuses on governing the country and stays focused on implementing his agenda. And you know, we can’t speak to everyone around him, what they may or may not have done. But we have to let the process play out. And so, I would urge the president to listen to his counsel. And my guess is that his counsel is telling him that this investigation continues to not focus on him or collusion, and since he can’t speak to the actions of others, let the special prosecutor, let the FBI play this out, see what evidence they have, before taking it a step too far. But I think that the quickest way to wrap this up is to let them do their job and let the pieces fall where they may.”
Spicer added that he doesn’t think it’s wise for the president to sit down with Mueller.
He further stated, “My hope, by the way, is that this investigation continues to be focused very broadly on Russian interference. We continue to see evidence of that. I think where the president needs to sit back and listen to his attorneys and say, this investigation, hopefully, is more about the broader meddling of Russia in our election, and that they’re going to come back and look at those bad actors, like the Russians that they indicted, and that, hopefully, will be the focuses.”
