Sean Spicer, the Newsmax host and first press secretary of the former Trump administration, said he plans to sue the Biden administration after the president requested the resignations Wednesday [09-08-2021] of the military academy board members appointed by Trump who remained in their roles.
“I will not be submitting my resignation, and I will be joining a lawsuit to fight this,” Spicer said on the air Wednesday during his Newsmax show “Spicer & Co.”
Sean Spicer was among 18 appointees who received the resignation request letters, which said they had until the end of the day to do so or they would be fired. Former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, former White House budget office director Russ Vought and national security adviser H.R. McMaster were also included.
Spicer of all people knew or should have known that as an appointee of former President Donald Trump to the Board of Visitors of the U.S. Naval Academy his days were numbered under President Joe Biden.
If that was not clear to Spicer when Trump appointed him in January, it should have been clear to him in August when he tweeted about the release of his upcoming book:
Spicer we believe is a Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserves. As a naval officer Spicer had to know that he cannot go public with a book criticizing the Commander-In-Chief and remain a member of the Board of Visitors.
Spicer is lucky not to have been court martialed.
And now in this post 1/6 Insurrection environment, Spicer wants to release his book, tweet as a pleases criticizing the Biden/Harris Administration and be a Plaintiff in a lawsuit against President Biden?
Go ahead, make Biden’s day!
Biden’s lawyers will be salivating at the opportunity to get through discovery what would be a treasure trove of Spicer’s post-1/6 non-public text messages, emails, tweets, instagrams and other electronic communications which even the House 1/6 Committee will not be able to get that easily.
So Spicer, sue.
