Spicer Questions: Over The Fence And Into The White House Edition

Mar 28, 2017

It’s a busy day so we’ll get right to it. American Bridge Vice President Shripal Shah calls on White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to answer the following questions:

1. Why did the Trump Administration seek to block former acting Attorney General Sally Yates from testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on Trump’s ties to Russia? Did the White House direct Chairman Devin Nunes to suddenly call off the hearing out of fear of what Yates would say?

2. Does President Trump wait to receive his intelligence briefing until the ten o’clock hour so he can watch and tweet about Fox and Friends? Yes, this is a real question.

3. Can you say definitively now what we all know to be true- Mexico is not going to pay for the wall? Per the White House’s own budget estimate, the wall is going to cost taxpayers $1 billion next year, $2.6 billion in 2018 and so on.

4. How is EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt ready to roll back the landmark Clean Power Plan when he’s reportedly missing his own policy briefings and leaving key decisions to his staff?

5. Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska took out a personal ad in the Wall Street Journal denying AP reporting about his $10 million a year contract with Paul Manafort. Do you expect any other Russian oligarchs will be coming forward as this scandal unfolds?
