During Monday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer insisted that a special prosecutor is not need to investigate Russia’s interference in last year’s presidential election just because President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
“I think this is a process that is running completely as it should,” Spicer told Fox News correspondent John Roberts. “It’s been handled by the deputy attorney general and the attorney general. The FBI director reports to the deputy attorney general.”
“There’s frankly no need for a special prosecutor,” he went on. “You have two Senate committees that are looking into this, the FBI is conducting their review.”
“It’s been made very clear, that with respect to the president himself, both Sen. Schumer, Sen. Feinstein, Sen. Manchin and everyone else who has been briefed on this has been very clear that there’s no collusion with respect to the president himself or no investigation there.”
