ite House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday was asked if a special prosecutor should investigate Russian hacking and alleged communications between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives.
“A special prosecutor for what?” he responded.
Spicer said a special prosecutor wasn’t needed to probe Russia’s alleged election interference because it has already “been investigated up and down.”
“The reporting that I’m seeing in different organizations suggests that there is nothing new being reported,” Spicer added. “So the question becomes at some point what do you have to further investigate when nothing has come out?”
