Spicer: WH Referring 'All Matters' on Russian Federation to Outside Counsel

02 June 2017

A top White House communications staffer has resigned as President Donald Trump considers a major staff overhaul amid intensifying inquiries into his campaign's dealings with Russian Federation.

His comments came on the heels of the resignation of White House Communications Director Mike Dubke-who did not have a relationship with Trump prior to taking the post.

They ask why Kushner would suggest secret conversations with the ambassador and meet the head of a Russian bank under US sanctions, failing - like a number of Trump associates - to mention it on his security-clearance form, all amid allegations Russia meddled in the USA election.

Dubke is still coming in to work and his last day has not yet been set. The position had gone unfilled after campaign aide Jason Miller - Trump's original choice for communications director - backed out of the job in December before the president's inauguration.

It's possible that in the future, there will be fewer press briefings led by White House communications staff, and instead there will be more press conferences with President Trump himself.

Aside from Kasowitz, the White House is considering bringing on old campaign hands to help manage the fallout.

A majority of Americans - 61 percent - think Trump does more harm than good when he speaks on behalf of his administration.

The Monday Fox News report, which Trump retweeted on Tuesday, laid blame on the Russians rather than Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, for discussing the possibility of a communications back channel between the Trump administration and Moscow.

In talks with Kislyak in December, Kushner floated the possibility of setting up a secure line of communication between the Trump transition team and Russia - and having those talks take place in Russian diplomatic facilities in the USA, essentially concealing their interactions from U.S. government scrutiny.

The committee also approved subpoenas to the two men's firms, Flynn Intel Llc, and Michael D. Cohen and Associates PC, the committee announcement said.

Duffy pointed out that Kushner should have disclosed his contacts Russian officials, but that the fact that he decided against it does not indicate any nefarious purposes. It makes us human, so is Sean Spicer really not willing to admit that Trump doesn't make mistakes, even in such a small stakes matter?

He reportedly claims the discussions were part of a "back channel" to Russian strongman Vladimir Putin.
