Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer urged the president Monday to "listen to his counsel," and not get in the way of the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller's work.
"I think what the president has to hopefully be assured to by his counsel is that, so far, this is not about him, this has never been about him, and that his job is to make sure that he stays focused on governing the country," Spicer told Bill Hemmer on Fox News. "We have to let the process play out. . . . Let the special prosecutor, let the FBI play this out and see what evidence they have before taking it a step too far. . . . Let the pieces fall where they may."
Trump was asked Monday whether he will fire Mueller after the FBI raided the office and hotel room of his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and responded, "Well, I think it's a disgrace what's going on. We'll see what happens."
The bureau seized records related to, in part, a $130,000 payment Cohen arranged to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the election, and communications between Cohen and Trump.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after Mueller sent a referral. Mueller is investigating whether there was any coordination between Trump's campaign team and the Russian government as part of the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
