CNN's Jim Acosta Chides White House for 'Suppression of Information'


White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is likely moving away from the microphone.

"There is a suppression of information going on at this WH that would not be tolerated at a city council mtg or press con with a state gov", Acosta wrote on Twitter.

Bloomberg News earlier reported Spicer was looking to move into a more senior role dealing with strategy for the Trump administration.

Previous reports have said that President Trump is looking to shake up his communications team, especially in the aftermath in the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

"It just seems chaotic", the official said. "And it just feels like we are slowly but surely being dragged into a new normal in this country where the president of the United Stats is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions".

May starts DUP talks in bid to keep power
But the DUP leader insisted it was now down to Sinn Féin whether an agreement is done. The Conservatives have 317 MPs while the DUP have 10.

The White House press briefing has seen better days. Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who has frequently filled in for Spicer, has told people that she doesn't want the job of press secretary, according to a source close to her. Some networks, like CNN, MSNBC, and C-SPAN, have instead carried the audio of the briefings live. Monday's briefing - the White House termed it a "gaggle", a more informal set-up, though it took place in a format much like a briefing - was likewise off-camera, with audio broadcasting forbidden. I don't understand why we covered that gaggle today, quite honestly, Brooke.

ACOSTA: It's a really good question, Brooke, and it's a question that I would ask, but unfortunately at this White House, we wouldn't have the video or the audio to show you the answer to that question, because of the stonewalling that we're getting over here at the White House.

Moreover, Spicer suggested that Trump would give a comment on this matter in the next couple of weeks.

"I don't know", Spicer said last Monday, during the only on-camera briefing of the week, when asked if Trump would make good on his word and testify under oath on the Russian Federation investigation.

But don't tell Trump aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who spoke aloud for the first time today to tell us the U.S.is becoming a "global leader" in the field of government technology innovation, "making the government more transparent and responsive to citizens needs".
