Spicer resigned as press secretary on July 21, a few hours after Anthony Scaramucci was brought in as the White House's communications director, a role he held only 10 days before he was sacked.

Further, "the advisers are also connected to a series of internal documents that Mueller's investigators have asked the White House to produce", the Post reported, "citing people familiar with the special counsel's inquiry".

The aides also most likely knew about the White House's initial response to warnings from former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates about ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russian Federation.

Hicks worked with Trump on Donald Trump Jr.'s initial statement about the Trump Tower meeting. "The President weighed in as any father would, based on the limited information that he had", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders in August.

Maybe Spicer felt he owed ABC after proving wrong reports he was going to compete on the next season of Dancing With The Stars, dashing dreams of many Reporters Who Cover Washington.

This will be Spicer's first television interview since officially leaving the White House, according to the Daily Beast. He has also signaled interest in questioning White House Counsel Don McGahn and one of McGahn's deputies, James Burnham.

That included Mr Trump's decision to sack James Comey as FBI Director, and the handling of a controversy involving former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his contacts with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

The Post noted that "courts have held that the president does not enjoy attorney-client privilege with lawyers in the White House Counsel's Office and their testimony about their Oval Office dealings can be sought in investigations".
