REENACTMENT: Trump fires Comey, Spicer hides among the hedges

Sanders was responding to a question from ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl, who suggested that Vice President Mike Pence was left "in the dark" regarding President Donald Trump's decision to fire Comey.

The White House has ruled out the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations of Russian interference in last year's general elections. The fact that the press secretary and deputy press secretary have constantly lied from the podium doesn't mean that the briefings don't serve a goal in allowing the media to publicly and regularly ask questions of the administration.

In Thursday's White House daily briefing, Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held her own in another pitch-hit appearance for Sean Spicer, tussling with ABC chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl over the timeline for James Comey's ouster from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "You've got a House committee, a Senate committee and Department of Justice all working on this", White House Principal Deputy Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. But the White House has denied those reports. It was initially reported that Sean Spicer was hiding with his staff behind the bushes as the news broke about James Comey being fired.

Of course, whoever holds the press secretary job is probably of little importance to actual voters, and mentally healthy non-politicos.

The ICRC had been allowed access to other prisoners on hunger strike, but Israel had been restricting access to Barghouti. Earlier this week, Israel produced footage it said showed Barghouti secretly breaking his fast in his cell.

He added, "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???"

Spicer is expected to begin the briefing at 1:30 p.m. ET Friday.

There was some talk as Trump took office that his administration would do things differently and cut back on press access.

The White House has so far declined to produce evidence of the three separate occasions the President referenced. It seems to me that you're playing a very unsafe game with the currency of the credibility of the President of the United States.

Earlier today, White House Correspondents' Association President Jeff Mason said that "doing away with briefing would reduce accountability, transparency, and the opportunity for Americans to see that, in the US system, no political figure is above being questioned".
