Despite Reports, Sean Spicer Remains White House Press Secretary

The White House is yet to name Mr Dubke's successor, although speculation is rife that Corey Lewandowski, former campaign manager for Mr Trump, could take over.

A rattled White House braced Monday for a fresh wave of scrutiny in the ever-widening investigation into Russian election meddling, as President Donald Trump rallied behind his embattled son-in-law and top aide Jared Kushner. Trump is said to want to play a larger role conveying his message to the press.

"It's both normal, in my opinion, and acceptable", he said on ABC's "This Week" program. Priebus and White House adviser Steve Bannon have been laying the groundwork for the new "war room".

The new report follows allegations last week that Mr Kushner and the Russian ambassador to America, Sergey Kislyak, discussed setting up a secure, private line of communication with Moscow using Russian facilities that bypassed the USA government. White House sources told NBC News that Mr Kushner has now been advised to "lay low" while news about the FBI investigation continues to make headlines.

Kushner reportedly had a key role in the Trump administration's recent dealings with Canada, Mexico, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and China, while the actual secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, quietly met with a number of foreign leaders during his travels overseas.

Rhode Island's junior U.S. Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse, says the country must work to recover its worldwide reputation. Trump has privately and publicly pinned much of the blame for his administration's rough start on the White House's communications strategy. In another tweet, he alleged that stories based on leaks from the White House "are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from SC, said on CNN's "State of the Union" that he was skeptical of the back-channel story because he did not trust Russian officials. Kushner may have discussed a secret communication channel between Russian Federation and the transition team.

According to the person familiar with the Kushner meeting, the Trump team eventually felt there was no need for a back channel once Rex Tillerson was confirmed as secretary of state on February 1.
