Trump's communications director set to leave White House, adviser says

Reports that top White House adviser Jared Kushner attempted to establish a secret communication link with Russian Federation has an ex-CIA official wondering if he was acting on his or following orders- and if so, whose orders.

In the days after the meeting with Mr. Kislyak, Mr. Kushner had a separate meeting with Sergey N. Gorkov, a Russian banker with close ties to President Vladimir Putin of Russia.

The reports about the December meeting between Russians and Trump officials in Trump Tower, which had already been under scrutiny from investigators, have thrust Kushner into the center of the ongoing Russia investigations.

Saturday: Reuters reported that Kushner had made undisclosed contacts with Kislyak between April and November previous year.

Reports in the United States say investigators believe he has relevant information, but is not necessarily suspected of a crime.

He declared his "total confidence" in Kushner, who boasts an enormous portfolio of domestic and worldwide responsibilities, underscoring his importance as Trump's chief adviser despite having no experience in politics before the 2016 White House race. "I have total confidence in him".

He offered to stay through the President's first foreign trip to ensure there was a smooth transition as he exited, the Washington Post reported.

President Trump effusively praised his son-in-law Jared Kushner for the work he has done in the White House, amid Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutiny of Kushner's contacts with Russian Federation and rumors of tension in their relationship.

Another White House member, Homeland Security Secretary John F.

On Sunday, Trump tweeted that "whenever you see the words "sources say" in the fake news media, and they don't mention is very possibly that those sources don't exist but are made up by fake news writers".

"I think [Putin] is the premier and most important threat", McCain said, adding, "more so than ISIS".

Trump has repeatedly expressed frustration with internal leaks to the media from the White House.
