Three Lawmakers Question Kushner Cos On Concerns Over White House Tie

  • White House seeks to wall off Russia questions

While his departure day is still unknown, he resigned on May 18th in a private meeting with president Trump and offered to stay on until the President completed his first worldwide trip to ease the transition.

According to the Partnership for Public Service, a nonpartisan group that provided the Trump transition with hiring advice, the White House has only been able to put forward nominees for 117 Senate-confirmed positions, even though there are 559 Senate-confirmed positions that are considered to be among the most important.

A separate set of reports surfaced around that same time claiming Kushner also discussed setting up a line of secret communication between Russian Federation and the Trump transition team.

Moscow has denied US intelligence agencies' conclusion that it meddled in the campaign to try to tilt the election in Trump's favor.

"That makes it much more cohesive", he said.

A security analyst who worked at the Central Intelligence Agency for 25 years said yesterday it was "hard to believe" the President had no knowledge of his son-in-law's actions.

Trump has struggled more than most recent presidents to keep his conversations with world leaders private. "But we're way beyond that now. This is very serious business".

The president ended his second tweet on the matter by again referring to several congressional investigations and the FBI's probe into Russian Federation as a collective "Witch Hunt!".

Lewandowski called Dubke a "very capable guy", but said he was brought in while not having a preexisting relationship with Trump.

The administration has been fending off questions about a senior aide's alleged attempt to set up a secret back channel of communication with Moscow in the weeks before Trump was took office.

Spicer's statement was in response to a question about reports that former FBI Director James Comey, who was terminated by Trump, meant to testify before Congress that the president urged him to drop an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Earlier this month, The Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead the investigation into ties between Trump's campaign and Russian leaders.

She said, "I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that's not why I lost".
