Spicer did not respond to question that whether the White House taped the conversation between Donald Trump and James Comey, which the president was referring to.
The No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Richard Durbin, went further on Friday and said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should appoint an independent special prosecutor to pursue possible criminal charges related to Comey's firing, although he did not specify if he meant such charges should be against Trump.

Sean Hannity opened his show with a monologue attacking the mainstream media, but this time he used the opportunity to voice his support for President Donald Trump ending those daily press briefings.
But the blowback from Comey's firing left the White House reeling once again.
