This may have been the most chaotic week yet for the White House, as bombshell report after bombshell report were released by CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post over the last three days. These reports indicate that Special Counsel Robert Mueller clearly is in the midst of not only an investigation of the Trump campaign, but of the President himself.
Mueller has requested boxes and boxes full of documents from the White House, according to reports from both the Times and the Post. These documents include notes which may have been taken leading up to the firing of James Comey, the resignation of Michael Flynn, and the public statements made by the President following allegations of last year’s Trump Tower meeting.
What many within the mainstream media missed in all of this, is that there is also a goldmine of information in the meticulous notes taken by former Press Secretary, Sean Spicer. These notes are almost undoubtedly going to make their way to Mueller and his investigators, if they are not already in their possession.
According to Axios, former colleagues of Spicer told them that he filled “notebook after notebook’ with information when he worked for the RNC, the Trump campaign, and the White House. These notes are allegedly incredibly detailed and would likely include valuable information on what the President may have said behind closed doors regarding any number of actions currently under investigation by Mueller.
Unlike former White House officials, who said that they took as few notes as possible in order to avoid being the one to provide evidence should an investigation pop up, “Sean [Spicer] documented everything,” according to Axios’ source. Another White House official stated that, “People are going to wish they’d been nicer to Sean. … He was in a lot of meetings.”
Axios sent a text message to Spicer shortly after speaking with their source, asking him to comment on his note-taking practices. This text message seemed to have hit a nerve.
“Please stop texting/emailing me unsolicited anymore… From a legal standpoint I want to be clear: Do not email or text me again. Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities,” Spicer replied.
Let’s hear your thoughts on what Spicer’s eventual role may be in this investigation. Discussion in the comments section below.
