Jared Kushner Didn't Suggest Back Channel, the Russians Did

Jared Kushner Didn't Suggest Back Channel, the Russians Did

Aides said the president has not ruled out the possibility of his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner, exiting their White House positions. "And he made it very clear that he would see through to the president's global trip".

Just another batch of his outright lies.

As for those who would go on the record as speaking for Kushner, their non-denial denials left much to be desired. In March the White House disclosed that the two had met, but the Post's sources say that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken an interest in what was discussed. Reports have circulated that Trump may bring in trusted former aides, including his original campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former deputy campaign manager David Bossie, as the White House struggles to keep focused on its policy agenda while dealing with FBI and congressional investigations into possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation.

The intent was to connect Trump's chief national security adviser at the time, Michael Flynn, with Russian military leaders, a person familiar with the discussions told the AP.

And what about Trump himself? "I've never heard of anybody asking to come to our embassy from Russian Federation to communicate with people back here in the United States, or vice versa". "On the Afghanistan review, he (Trump) is still reviewing that from the Department of Defense", he said.

What Congress needs is a Sen.

"They get along very well; he has a lot of respect for her", Spicer said.

Day after day - even hour by hour some days - additional scandalous material about Trump and his administration is revealed.


For Republicans eager to defend Team Trump, "backchannel" communications between the United States and other countries - friend and foe alike - have been common for many years, so the report on Kushner need not be seen as necessarily controversial.

Thank God for the mainstream media.

"Could you give us an example of fake news, Sean?" It is revealing the truth, as it is provided to them, about the con man Trump.

"The reason that the president is frustrated is because there's a perpetuation of false narratives, a use of unnamed sources over and over again about things that are happening that don't ultimately happen, and I think that is troubling", Spicer said.

Trump has been open about discussing the possible exit of Priebus, according to a Tuesday report in The New York Times.

The problem with that is that the rest of us - the majority in the country - have to put up with it also.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Mr Dubke resigned before Mr Trump left for his worldwide trip earlier this month, suggesting that his departure is not linked to any pending shake-ups.

I am personally sick and exhausted of hearing anything about Trump, his Tweets, his lies, his lack of knowledge of history, his inability to even articulate any policy statement.

While taxes have taken a back seat in recent weeks, Trump tweeted Sunday: "The massive TAX CUTS/REFORM that I have submitted is moving along in the process very well, actually ahead of schedule".
