Sean Spicer Handed Mid-Briefing Note Saying, “You Just Committed A Felony”

Sean Spicer Handed Mid-Briefing Note Saying, "You Just Committed A Felony"
WASHINGTON – White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was in the middle of his daily press briefing Thursday when an aide handed him a note that said, “You just committed a felony,” according to a senior White House official with knowledge of the note’s contents.
Spicer paused briefly after reading the note, then cleared his throat and continued with the briefing, taking a question from Jonathan Karl of ABC News.
The alleged felony the note referred to apparently centers around Spicer’s remarks during the briefing about an alleged Justice Department investigation into ties between President Trump, his campaign team and officials representing the Russian government. Spicer said the investigators have, “no evidence, zero.”
“I’m telling you they have nothing,” Spicer said in response to a question from Hallie Jackson of NBC News. The briefing was recorded and broadcast on several different networks and news sites. “I’ve seen what they have, I got hold of it, and they have nothing. They should quit while they’re ahead.”
It is illegal for a White House official to try to influence an investigation by the FBI or the Justice Department itself. It is unclear whether the investigation Spicer was referring to is happening on behalf of the FBI or the Justice Department itself, which has jurisdiction over the FBI.
No matter the specific agency in charge of the investigation, any investigation of the type that Spicer was apparently referring to is supposed to be conducted free of any White House influence. If Spicer did, in fact, ask for, and ultimately procure any information on an investigation into President Trump, he may well have broken the law simply by doing so. On top of that issue, there is the fact that he publicized the investigation, which is also against the law, as any such investigation is considered classified.
It is unclear which Spicer aide handed him the note, but according to the White House official we spoke to, the entire White House communications team was in shock when they heard Spicer admit communicating with the Justice Department official from the podium in the Brady Briefing Room of the White House.
“They were all blown away,” the official said. “I mean, they know he’s not the brightest bulb, but they didn’t think he was quite that dumb.”

For Trump supporters:
1. He called Hillary Clinton a crook.
You bought it. Then he paid $25 million to settle a fraud lawsuit.
2. He said he’d release his tax returns, eventually.
You bought it. He hasn’t, and says he never will.
3. He said he’d divest himself from his financial empire, to avoid any conflicts of interest.
You bought it. He is still heavily involved in his businesses, manipulates the stock market on a daily basis, and has more conflicts of interest than can even be counted.
4. He said Clinton was in the pockets of Goldman Sachs, and would do whatever they said.
You bought it. He then proceeded to put half a dozen Goldman Sachs executives in positions of power in his administration.
5. He said he’d surround himself with all the best and smartest people.
You bought it. He nominated theocratic loon Mike Pence for Vice President. A white supremacist named Steve Bannon is his most trusted confidant. Dr. Ben Carson, the world’s greatest idiot savant brain surgeon, is in charge of HUD. Russian quisling Rex Tillerson is Secretary of State.
6. He said he’d be his own man, beholden to no one.
You bought it. He then appointed Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, whose only “qualifications” were the massive amounts of cash she donated to his campaign.
7. He said he would “drain the swamp” of Washington insiders.
You bought it. He then admitted that was just a corny slogan he said to fire up the rubes during the rallies, and that he didn’t mean it.
8. He said he knew more about strategy and terrorism than the Generals did.
You bought it. He promptly gave the green light to a disastrous raid in Yemen- even though all his Generals said it would be a terrible idea. This raid resulted in the deaths of a Navy SEAL, an 8-year old American girl, and numerous civilians. The actual target of the raid escaped, and no useful intel was gained.
9. He said Hillary Clinton couldn’t be counted on in times of crisis.
You bought it. He didn’t even bother overseeing that raid in Yemen; and instead spent the time hate-tweeting the New York Times, and sleeping.
10. He called CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times “fake news” and said they were his enemy.
You bought it. He now gets all his information from Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and InfoWars.
11. He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done.
You bought it. He took his first vacation after 11 days in office. On the taxpayer’s dime. And went golfing. And that’s just the first month. (He's now been 4 weekends out of 7...)

Paul Ryan is a Dirty Energy Koch Sock Puppet.
The Dirty Energy Koch Brothers appreciate your support of the Tea Bagger Propaganda they have promoted and your participation in their RIGGED ELECTIONS!
The Dirty Energy Koch Brothers appreciate the tax cuts you rewarded them with, and they love the removal of those nasty environmental regulations that will allow them to pollute to their vicious hearts' content [assuming they have hearts].
If you support TRUMPCARE, you will again heap money into their chests of gold for which they won't thank you.

Sorry for you WISCONSIN!

Wait, wait, WAIT....Ryan just did a TED talk from hell using the presentation software of the damned (PowerPoint) to argue that the main reason the ACA is in a "death spiral" (it isn't), is because all the healthy people are being compelled to cover the costs for all the sick people who should just fucking die already.
Ryan's entire argument was that TRUMPCARE is better because it doesn't force healthy people to pay for sick people.
What the HELL do you call it when you compel the indigent who need treatment for cancer to go to the Emergency Room (yeah, all those ER docs are really Oncologists in disguise). Those costs will get passed on to....
....wait for it...
Formulary costs will skyrocket
Insurance Companies will pass the increased costs on to their insureds via skyrocketing premiums.
This, dear ones, is the Republican "fuck you shuffle" in all its stumblebum glory.
