Fresh off Trump's first official trip overseas, his administration is looking for ways to respond more aggressively to allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and revelations of possible ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow. "It's very important to know that I can be helpful on the outside; if they want me to help on the inside and the right role is there, I'd be willing to consider that".

A majority of Americans - 61 percent - think Trump does more harm than good when he speaks on behalf of his administration. The assembled reporters wanted more, crying out in unison, but the more-subdued-than-normal press secretary left it there.

"We are focused on the president's agenda and going forward all questions on these matters will be referred to outside counsel, Marc Kasowitz", he said, referring to business mogul's longtime legal adviser and divorce lawyer now representing him in all matters related to Russian Federation and any fallout involving former FBI Director James Comey.


President Donald Trump's White House is seeking to ban reporters from asking about the biggest scandal in the Washington D.C. aka the federal probe into alleged relations between Trump associates and Russian officials.

Comey had agreed to testify in a public session before the Senate Intelligence Committee as early as next week, CNN reported Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Spicer declined to say if Trump has met with attorneys over representing him in a personal capacity.

The poll results are not immune to the deep sense of partisan politics in the country, however. Democrats thought all the officials were "hopeless as administration spokespersons", though opinions on Pence were more divided among Democrats than the other administration officials.
