White House says underfire Trump campaign chair had 'very limited role'

White House says underfire Trump campaign chair had 'very limited role'

White House press secretary Sean Spicer continued today to defend President Donald Trump's claims that Trump's predecessor ordered surveillance of Trump Tower during the presidential election campaign, even as FBI Director James Comey testified to Congress that there is "no information" supporting that claim. "And there was a discussion of Paul Manafort who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time".

That depends on what he means by the word "limited".

Manafort, of course, ran Trump's campaign for several months past year after original campaign manager Corey Lewandowski resigned amid controversy over his manhandling of a female Breitbart writer. And when campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was sacked in June, Manafort - who butted heads with Lewandowski - was widely seen as the campaign's top official.

Last week, CNN reported that Ukrainian prosecutors have repeatedly appealed to the us government, including letters to the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, for help in questioning Manafort in regards to an ongoing corruption case. I think it's fine to look into it.

Although Manafort played no official role in the campaign between August and November, sources told CNN in December that the former chairman was still very much involved with Trump and played an informal role in the presidential transition.

Asked whether Trump maintains confidence in Comey, Spicer said: "There's no reason to believe he doesn't at this time".

In a letter to the Senate intelligence committee, Page, who has emerged as a key figure in the controversy surrounding Trump associates' connections to Russian Federation, cast himself as a regular presence in Trump Tower, where the campaign was headquartered.

"It's clear that nothing has changed", Spicer also commented on Comey's first public confirmation that the Trump campaign has been under FBI investigation since July, stressing that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the election.

Some commentators said Spicer appeared "shaken―even frightened" during the briefing.

Coons, in his statement, added that the "firings of Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn over troubling ties to Russia to the President's refusal to release his tax returns and his unfounded accusation that he was "wire tapped" by President Obama, President Trump and his team have refused every opportunity to allay concerns of inappropriate Russian ties".

Spicer later clarified: "Just so we're clear, I'm not dismissing Paul Manafort as a hanger-on".

Spicer said Flynn was only a volunteer on the campaign.
