    Sean Spicer: The person who managed Trump's campaign had a 'very limited role' in it

    Spin baby spin.

    Indeed, after today's revelation of what was common knowledge, that being an investigation into Trump's campaign, the professional apologist for Trump, Spicer, puts an interesting version of reality forward.

    Apparently, Paul Manafort, the cmapaign manager, had a very limited role within the campaign.

    Really. He said that.

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday sought to downplay the roles of President Donald Trump's associates who might have had contacts with Russian officials during the campaign amid a high-profile congressional hearing on Russia's role in the 2016 election.
    During a press briefing, Spicer said some of those who are under investigation for their connections to Russia, which is thought to have interfered in the 2016 election to attempt to swing it in Trump's favor, didn't have prominent roles on the Trump campaign including one of Trump's former campaign managers.


    "At some point, people that got thrown around at the beginning of this hearing, some of those names, the greatest amount of interaction that they've had is [having] cease and desist letters sent to them," he said.
    Spicer said he was referring to people like Carter Page, an early foreign policy adviser on the Trump campaign.
    "There is a fine line between people who want to be part of something that they never had an official role in and people who actually played a role in either the campaign or the transition," he said.


    When asked whether, in light of the recently announced FBI investigation into the matter, Trump stood by his comments that he's not aware of any contacts that his campaign associates had with Russia during the election, Spicer said he does.


    He then tried to downplay the role that Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager for a few months during the election, had in the campaign.


    "Obviously there's been discussion of Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time," Spicer said.


    Later during the briefing, another reporter followed up on Spicer's suggestion that Manafort played a "limited role" in the campaign, and Spicer clarified his comments.

    Trump's Russian imbroglio isn't going to go away.

    I'm sorry. Being Campaign Manager for 3 months is not a "limited role".

    This is really getting Bizarro World.

    just like Kellyanne he's fast losing respect among his peers. He even tried to claim that just because he reads a press clip doesn't mean he endorsed it. Yes it does. Why is he reading it from the podium during a press briefing then?

    Yep, just like Flynn, a "volunteer". They probably stuffed envelopes and licked stamps. Sure that's it!
