That could include Corey Lewandowski, David Bossie, and Sam Nunberg. Wallace had to challenge him again, pointing out that the Trump transition was operated in a private capacity, not via the White House, and was a challenge to the work of the Obama White House. "They're in full-scale war, and they're thinly staffed".

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he was very concerned about Kushner's approach to the Russians.

Kushner dropped out of Trump's first foreign trip before it ended to return to Washington to deal with newly leaked reporting in the Washington Post that he met with the Russian ambassador in December at Trump Tower where they discussed the possibility of setting up a secure and secret communications between the Kremlin and Trump's transition team.

The president's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is now a focus of the investigation into possible collusion between Trump's associates and Moscow.

"There's a lot of different ways to communicate, backchannel publicly with other countries", Kelly told NBC News' Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press". The newspaper cited anonymous USA officials who were briefed on intelligence reports on intercepted Russian communications.

"I want to get to the bottom of it", Graham said.

Kushner's lawyer has said his client is willing to talk to federal and congressional investigators about the matter. Nevertheless, Kushner has reportedly been urged to keep a low profile as Trump prepares to reset his agenda following his return from overseas. We have one president at a time - does that make a difference?

Dubke said in a statement "It has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration".

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said it makes no sense that the Russian ambassador who reportedly spoke with Kushner would report that conversation to Moscow, knowing the USA would be monitoring the communications.

Graham called the report "stunning" and said Comey "needs to be held accountable".

"The whole story line is suspicious,"Graham (R-SC) told CNN's "State of the Union".

Schiff also said that even if the topic of Kushner's secret communication was about how best to resolve the years-long conflict in Syria, that doesn't mitigate the situation because Russia's objectives are different from those of the USA - especially given the intelligence on Russia's interference in the election.

Following another week of negative stories about the widening investigation into top Trump advisers' communications with Russian Federation, the president accused the media broadly of creating fake sources within the White House, a charge made without specificity or evidence.
