Kushner asked to 'lay low' amid Russian interference reports

Kushner asked to 'lay low' amid Russian interference reports

"If these allegations are true with the Russians about establishing a back channel and didn't reveal that, that's a real problem", California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff said. But Trump immediately railed against administration leaks in a flurry of tweets Sunday, calling them "fabricated lies".

President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared "Got Dem Visas" Kushner, wanted to have a burner phone in the White House that was directly connected to Russian Federation; the White House communications director has resigned; and someone tweeted some fake-ass message from Trump's presidential Twitter account-you know, the one he doesn't use-to condemn the terrorist attacks in Portland, Ore.

Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday morning that Trump retains full confidence in Kushner, as well.

On May 26, The Washington Post reported citing alleged intercepts of Russian communications reviewed by USA officials that Kushner suggested Kislyak using Russian diplomatic facilities to shield the talks ahead of Trump's inauguration from being monitored. Kushner, Trump added, is "respected by virtually everyone" and "is a very good person".

The sources stress the conversation with the president's son-in-law was focused on the US response to the crisis in Syria and other policy -related matters.

Kushner's wife, Ivanka, spotted with president trump's private attorney Marc Kasowitz at the White House Sunday. That's potentially bad news for Jared Kushner. "What's worrying me are the patterns we're seeing. And the other pattern we have is just a continuous drumbeat of inappropriate contacts with the Russians".

But Kushner's communications with the Russians have drawn the interest of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is investigating allegations Russia tried to meddle in the USA election, and whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with agents of the Russian government.

Trump struck back Sunday, after maintaining a limited social media presence throughout his nine-day trip.

OneLogin admits recent breach is pretty dang serious

Trump spent Sunday meeting with attorneys at the White House, presumably to set strategy for dealing with the Russian Federation investigation that has largely sidetracked his legislative agenda.

"It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media", Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

Kushner's involvement in the proposed back channel was first reported by The Washington Post, which said he suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities for the discussions, apparently to make them more hard to monitor.

Former U.S. national security officials have suggested that such a line of communication would be out of the norm for a presidential transition team and that could possibly be illegal.

Kelly said he doesn't know if the discussion allegedly initiated by Kushner involved using Russian equipment in Russian diplomatic facilities.

Fox says it received its information from an anonymous source who is familiar with the matter.

Flynn served briefly as Trump's national security adviser before being fired in February.
