Is the administration muzzling federal agency employees?

Hosted by

Government workers at the EPA and other departments are telling reporters they've been muzzled by orders not to talk to the public — or even to staff members in Congress. At a press briefing today, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters, "They haven't been directed by us to do anything. I think from what I understand, is that they've been told within their own agencies to adhere to their own policies. But that directive did not come from here."
