Sean Spicer Won't Deny Trump Aides' Collusion With Russian Operatives

Press Secretary Sean Spicer addressed the accusation during his daily press briefing Thursday afternoon, dismissing any notion of wrongdoing by the President but stopping short of defending Scavino's original tweet.

Instead of addressing the question, Spicer went off on a tangent, calling out Murray for using the word "associates".

He said Speaker Paul Ryan has done what he can, but Republican leaders cannot force lawmakers to vote in a particular way.

"But at the end of the day, this isn't a dictatorship".

"There's a huge appetite for tax returns", Spicer said, his eyebrows suddenly raising in alarm. "Is the president humbled by the process?"

Spicer declined to say whether he thought the measure would garner the required 216 votes to pass the House, calling it a "balancing act" to get GOP members on board. "The middle class desperately wants and needs a tax break", Spicer said.

Reports surfaced last night saying that House Republicans planned to rewrite the bill overnight and then vote on it today, but so far no new language has been released.

Asked if there was a political cost to a collapse of the health care bill, Spicer said that there would have been a cost to allowing the debate to carry on.

Trump met with 18 Republican House members at the White House yesterday, including some in the House Freedom Caucus who have opposed the Republican plan to replace Obamacare. "If you're talking about employees of the campaign, employees of the transition or in the White House, that's one thing".
