Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer says he will cooperate with the House investigation seeking information from 81 people and groups in President Donald Trump’s orbit, insisting that he has nothing to hide about his time in the White House.
Spicer reacted to his naming in the investigation in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, crediting Democratic oversight efforts to the fact that “elections have consequences.”
Spicer called the wide-ranging probe into Trump’s associates “a potential fishing expedition” looking into Trump’s finances and personal relationships.
