House Dems to WH: Revoke Kushner's security clearance

The Washington Post previously reported that Sergey Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the USA, told his superiors in Moscow that Kushner proposed a backchannel line of communication between the Trump transition team and the Russian government in December. That follows a recent report from The Washington Post alleging that Kushner wanted to develop a secure, private line with Russian Federation.

While Trump had defended Kushner, who has been his most trusted adviser, he is also reported to have expressed dissatisfaction with him and his family, especially over Kushner's sister seeking investors at a roadshow in Beijing for a New Jersey housing project using the family name.

"So, generally speaking, about back-channel communications, what that allows you to do is to communicate in a discreet manner", McMaster said. CNN reported on Thursday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into Kushner's many roles on both Trump's transition team and in the White House. Trump officials were preparing to establish a "war room" to address an issue that has begun to dominate his young presidency.

Reports about the December meeting in Trump Tower between Russians and Trump officials - which was already under scrutiny from investigators - have thrust Kushner into the center of the ongoing Russia investigations.

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

Kushner's portfolio includes trying to secure Middle East peace to leading the White House office of "American innovation". The link was not established, The Post reported. The meeting included another senior adviser in the Trump administration, as well.

"Very concerned about the nature of these approaches to the Russians", former United States Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in a Sunday morning news show interview.

The back channel was meant to connect Michael Flynn, who later became Trump's first national security adviser, with Russian military leaders, the AP reported.

Spicer refers all Russia-related questions to Trump's lawyer
However, Trump has privately and publicly pinned much of the blame for his administration's woes on the communications effort. The tweet , sent at 12:06 a.m., was favorited almost 10,000 times in one minute and drew ridicule of online Trump critics.

Trump administration officials have said they are considering rolling back the sanctions, which limit America's financing to six of Russia's biggest banks, including Vnesheconombank.

Recently, Trump's longtime lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, joined a still-forming legal team to help him shoulder the intensifying investigations into alleged Russian interference in the election and his associates' potential involvement.

"Mr. Kushner's attorney has volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings, and he will do the same if he's contacted in connection with any other inquiry", Spicer said.
