What's in your notebooks, Sean?

Sean Spicer 'documented everything.' Robert Mueller wants to talk to him.

As the Russia probe continues to expand, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has informed the Trump administration that he is interested in speaking to former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Of particular interest could be "notebook after notebook" that Spicer filled while working for the Republican National Committee, the Trump campaign, and in the White House, Axios reports.

Spicer, for his part, was not feeling too generous about discussing the topic with reporters, Axios' Mike Allen writes:

When we texted Spicer for comment on his note-taking practices, he replied: "Mike, please stop texting/emailing me unsolicited anymore."

When I replied with a "?" (I have known Spicer and his wife for more than a dozen years), he answered: "Not sure what that means. From a legal standpoint I want to be clear: Do not email or text me again. Should you do again I will report to the appropriate authorities." [Axios]

Word of Spicer's notebooks is making some people nervous — in the words of one official, "people are going to wish they'd been nicer to Sean." Another noted, "Sean documented everything." Read the full report at Axios.
