Early on in the White House press briefing today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was confronted with a question about the breaking story that there’s been a gag order placed on the Environmental Protection Agency.
Reporter David Jackson asked Spicer about EPA officials being gagged while bringing up the situation with the National Park Service being briefly banned from Twitter over the weekend, pressing the press sec on if it was true.
“I don’t know, Spicer said. “That story is literally breaking while we were entering the briefing room. We’re looking into it.”
Regarding the issue with the National Park Service and the Interior Department, Spicer said there was guidance put out to act in compliance with set rules.
