Manafort: 'No Role' in DNC Hack or Release of Info
"So to start to look at some individual who was there for a short period of time, or separately individuals who really didn't play a role in the campaign, and to suggest that those are the basis for anything is a bit ridiculous", Spicer chided reporters Monday.
Sen. Chris Coons, D-Delaware, on Monday accused President Donald Trump's spokesman of mischaracterizing his statements regarding potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials in the leadup to the 2016 election.
Trump's top aides would rather obscure that fact, especially considering the President's past comments about the sport and the White House. "How you use the game of golf is something that he's talked about".
On multiple occasions, though, Trump's games have been made public.
At one point, a reporter mentioned that Trump has played a lot of gold since Inauguration Day despite regularly criticizing Obama for the same thing.
As White House correspondents have noted, the White House is apparently taking great lengths to keep Trump's frequent golf trips a secret.
"According to a reporter who was in Florida with the president, Trump spent more than four hours at his golf club before returning to Mar-a-Lago, where he is expected to have dinner with Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutter", a report from The Hill noted.
Trump holds a golf club during a media event at the site for his then yet-to-be-built golf course in Scotland.
"You saw him utilize this as an opportunity with (Japanese) Prime Minister Abe to help foster deeper relationships in Asia", Spicer said during his press briefing Monday when asked about the apparent hypocrisy.
Trump also visited his course in Sterling, Virginia, on March 11 for a meeting. It's not a wiretap ordered by Obama on Trump Tower. In the following months, he oversaw the attempt to "pivot" Trump from a blustery populist firebrand into a sober, more "presidential" general election candidate, but he was forced to resign after The New York Times reported that the former lobbyist had allegedly received $12.7 million in undisclosed payments from a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine. "He played more golf previous year than Tiger Woods. We have to work".
Comey's disclosure came during his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee and also included the Federal Bureau of Investigation director saying he has no information to support Trump's assertion that former President Barack Obama had Trump's offices wiretapped during the campaign. But the Obama White House regularly disclosed to the press corps when the president was playing golf, on weekends and even on vacation.
Now, citing the President's privacy, Trump's aides are left trying to hide the President's frequent golfing.
