White House press secretary Sean Spicer was guarded Tuesday when asked about news reports suggest he will soon step away from the presidential briefing room podium.

Politico reported Monday that Spicer was searching for his own replacement in order to shake up the communications staff; Spicer is also gunning for a job more senior to both the roles.

"But look, it's no secret we've had a couple of vacancies, including our communications director". We have been meeting with potential people who may be of service to this administration.

"I have not sat down and asked him about his specific reaction to them, so I'd be glad to touch base and get back to you", Spicer said. "Obviously, we've been dealing with a lot of other issues today", Spicer told reporters during a White House press briefing.

Around the same time, Reince Priebus, then the incoming White House chief of staff, said on "Fox News Sunday" that Trump accepts that Russian Federation was behind the interference.

Spicer has already seen his public role diminish in recent weeks.

The briefing wasn't originally scheduled but was added to the White House agenda on Tuesday morning. "Sean Spicer is doing multiple jobs, communications director, press secretary, etc".
