Scandal in the White House? Clinton Aides Know What That's Like


"Jared is doing a great job for the country", "I have total confidence in him".

Shortly after Trump's remarks on Twitter, Homeland Security secretary John Kelly made the rounds of Sunday television news shows to praise any so-called backchannel communications, especially with Russian Federation, as "a good thing".

Other White House officials have come to Kushner's defense as well, including national security adviser H.R. McMaster, who said he was "not concerned" by the reports, and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly, who said Sunday that "any channel of communication, back or otherwise, with a country like Russian Federation is a good thing".

Ivanka Trump will not be involved in the White House's internal, war room-like operation aimed at developing a rapid-response and communications strategy in an attempt to keep up with the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation, per the administration official.

Back in Washington on Sunday afternoon, Ivanka Trump was spotted outside the White House, chatting with lawyer Marc Kasowitz before boarding an SUV together.

Until this week, Kushner had largely escaped the focus on Trump's links with Vladimir Putin's Moscow regime, which has so far forced the resignation of Trump's national security adviser and the recusal of his attorney-general from the FBI investigation into Russian influence.

The investigation into alleged Russian interference began at the request of the former administration over suspicion that Moscow may have helped sway the election in favor of Trump.

Should the White House not have back channel communications with the Kremlin? "I'm going to go talk to the Russian embassy because I don't trust American channels, '" Mudd said on CNN's "The Situation Room".

"Back channels like this are the regular course of business".

Some foreign affairs experts said the move, while former president Barack Obama had weeks left in his term, anxious them that it could undermine USA security and some opposition Democrats have suggested that Kushner's security clearance should be revoked.

On Saturday, just after returning from his first presidential trip overseas, the Republican asserted that articles which include "sources say" are often based on non-existent sources. "They are not our friends". Schiff would neither confirm nor deny the reports about Kushner, but said if they are accurate, "it's obviously very concerning".
