Trump's communications director to quit

Lawyers for Kushner said he was willing to talk with federal and congressional investigators about his foreign contacts and his work on the Trump campaign.

Kushner is now under FBI scrutiny as it investigates meetings that Kushner had with Russian officials during the transition period following the November election, though this does not mean he is the target of the investigation.

There is no indication Kushner is now a target of the FBI's probe, and there are no allegations he committed any wrongdoing.

Trump also wrote that "many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies".

Trump adminstration's political agenda is being increasingly stalled by an ever growing scandal about secret meetings between senior Trump officials and Russian diplomats before the U.S. billionaire took office in January. And they're used to attention on a smaller scale - they were public figures in the NY real estate scene long before President Donald Trump began his campaign.

The disclosure of the back channel has put the White House on the defensive.

Controversy over the Russian Federation issue deepened after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey earlier this month, leading to allegations by critics that the president sought to hamper the agency's investigation of the matter.

The move comes as the role of President Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner is also under Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutiny for his alleged establishment of a back-channel of communications with the Kremlin during the transition. They settled their children into new schools and a new home in DC's posh Kalorama neighborhood, just two miles from the White House, and around the corner from the Obamas. Conway said Dubke had agreed to continue working while Trump was away on his first global trip as president. More attorneys with deep experience in Washington investigations are expected to be added, along with crisis communication experts. "It's good to be back!"

US President Donald Trump has offered both candid praise and unabashed criticism of Germany and its policies. "We Europeans must really take our fate into our own hands - of course in friendship with the United States of America, in friendship with Great Britain, and as good neighbors wherever that is possible also with other countries, even with Russian Federation".

"I did not know Mike Dubke before he came on as communications director, did not know him well", Conway said. He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. "It's much more collaborative than people realize".

Pressed on why Trump's puzzling tweet remained online overnight and whether anyone in the administration was paying attention, Spicer said, "I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant".

She helped spearhead a federal paid family leave program that was included in the budget released last Tuesday while they were overseas.

Mike Dubke, an experienced Republican strategist, was hired in March to revamp the White House media strategy.
