Sean Spicer Explains 'What's Not to Love' About Recent WikiLeaks Dump

The White House on Wednesday said that President Trump was not the target of any investigation, even though five days earlier he claimed in a series of tweets that he had indeed been the target of a wiretap initiated by former President Barack Obama.

Asked about the latest dump by WikiLeaks - which claims the documents detail how the Central Intelligence Agency can hack into a variety of items, from cellphones to televisions - Spicer pointed out that the alleged theft occurred during the end of the Obama administration. When asked if any women working in the White House had taken the day off to support the movement, Press Secretary Sean Spicer's first response was to chuckle.

"It is our policy as a government not to confirm the authenticity of any kind of disclosure or hack", Spicer said.

"Sen. Cotton clearly recognizes that the current version of health care that is out there right now is not sustainable", Mr. Spicer said.

Murray tames Verdasco to clinch maiden Dubai Duty Free tennis title
Still, the three-time Grand Slam champion is wary of Verdasco's ball-striking ability. The Spaniard said: "I'll just try to recover and be as ready as possible".

Meanwhile, the state of Hawaii has requested emergency court intervention to halt Mr Trump's revised executive order placing USA entry restrictions on refugees and travellers from six Muslim-majority nations.

Spicer changed his answer slightly on Thursday, saying he was "not aware" of such an investigation. He did not respond to a question about Trump's beliefs on the matter.

Spicer said that he found it "interesting" that Democrats who were previously upset about the John Podesta email released remained largely silent now. In recent months, Spicer has developed something like a catchphrase when asked about the president's messages on social media.
