Per CBS News:
White House press secretary Sean Spicer has resigned, CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett has confirmed.
Spicer resigned on Friday morning, shortly after President Trump selected Anthony Scaramucci as communications director. Spicer has taken more of a background role in the administration in recent weeks, with deputy White House Press Sarah Huckabee Sanders taking over most of the White House press briefings.
