White House discussing moving Spicer to senior communications role

Mike Dubke, who had been in that job for less than three months, resigned in May. The longtime Republican strategist's departure left the White House in a position to restructure its communications department, according to the report.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer is taking a step back from his very public role at the podium to help manage the message coming out of the White House from the communications team. "We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation", Sanders said.

With the upcoming changes, Spicer will assume a supervisory role over both the press and communications offices.

More and more of Spicer's briefings have been off-camera in recent weeks, including Monday's. Earlier in the administration, the briefings were a major draw for political junkies, often broadcast live in their entirety on cable news networks.

On May 12, three days after he fired Comey, Trump said the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director better hope that there are no "tapes" of their conversations before Comey starts leaking to the press.

Bloomberg, which also reported the news that Spicer might move into a different role, noted that no final decisions have been made.

Spicer avoided on-the-record interviews about the firing for hours.

Some reporters, including The New York Times' White House correspondent, Maggie Haberman, reacted with surprise to the news that Spicer has been tasked with finding his own replacement.
