Sean Spicer just blindsided Trump with investigation announcement

Donald Trump is a man who demands absolute loyalty from his staff, but who has a well-documented habit of throwing them under the bus the moment they cease being useful to him or when their sacrificing helps protect the president personally.

It’s little surprise then that Trump’s associates are so quick to sell him out when it becomes necessary for their own survival. Michael Cohen is a prime example of this principle, and by the time Robert Mueller’s investigation ends it seems likely that the list of names will grow. Trump may demand loyalty, but he certainly doesn’t inspire it.

Now, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has signaled his willingness to cooperate with the House Democrats’ probe into corruption into in Trump’s administration, presidential campaign, and businesses.

During an appearance on Fox News, the disgraced former professional liar was asked about the announcement yesterday that the Democratically-controlled House Judiciary Committee has requested documents from 81 “individuals and entities” related to Trump and his businesses. Spicer’s name was on the list.

Spicer obfuscated at first, implying that the legitimate and necessary steps the Democrats are taking to investigate our clearly criminal president are all part of some partisan “fishing expedition.”

“They have a constitutional right and responsibility to exhibit oversight over the executive branch. But going back through the president’s personal finances and history, you know, who knows how far, Seems a bit of an expedition as opposed to enacting agenda that they put the American people to be elected to govern on,” Spicer said, as if anyone would believe he has the interests of the American people at heart after he helped facilitate the worst president in America’s history misinformation and lying.

However, it wasn’t long before Spicer let the cat out of the bag: he intends to do what Democrats have asked. If he truly thought it was nothing but a fishing expedition, surely he wouldn’t cave so easily to the pressure?

“I will do everything to facilitate this investigation and there’s nothing that I have to hide. So I want a swift conclusion to this whole thing as soon as possible,” Spicer later added, an admission that is sure to worry President Trump. Put frankly, Spicer is such a clear opportunist that one struggles to imagine him taking the fall for anyone.

Of course, it’s too soon to tell what, if anything, Spicer knows about wrongdoing on the part of Trump or his family, but given his former prominent position in the White House, it’s quite possible that he knows things that be highly interested to Democratic investigators. Only the coming months will tell.
