The White House Says It Won't Answer Questions About Russia Anymore

An increasing number of House Democrats are Russian to strip Jared Kushner's clearance in the name of "national security".

David Sanger, National security correspondent, The New York Times; author, "Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power".

As Spicer stated Tuesday, both he and the president are frustrated with what the press secretary has described as a preponderance of fake and false news stories.

Fusion was one of the first on the case, quoting Trump's tweet and adding a meta twist: "It's now been 15 minutes and the President still hasn't deleted this tweet".

"I don't know how any comms person could not be frustrated in that position right now given the daily drama", a source close to him said. I also believe that he will get to the truth of the matter and that he will discover the scenario in Trump's past whereby the Russians caught him on videotape doing something extremely inappropriate.

Ivanka Trump, a presidential adviser, had fought to keep in the United States in the agreement, leading a faction thought to include Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

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.

"This isn't what they wanted", said a former Trump adviser who remains in regular contact with White House officials said, referring to Ivanka Trump. This exit is believed to be a part of broader staff changes as President Trump tries to limit political damage from investigations into the role of Russian Federation in his presidential campaign.

Kushner has accrued a large portfolio for any one official, especially one without any government experience.

Gergen went on to describe how Kushner's influence in the White House seems to have weakened.

Kushner acknowledges he enjoys his position near the top of the USA government, despite having no previous experience in public service, mainly because he understands his father-in-law and has earned his trust, senior administration officials said.

Rumors of impending shake-ups have come and gone in the Trump White House before.

But while Spicer's briefings have generated unusually high ratings - a bonus for the ratings-conscious president - Trump has reportedly expressed frustration with his performance.

Three members of Trump's campaign admitted publicly that they lied or "forgot" about their meetings with Russians: Michael Flynn, Jeff Sessions and Carter Page, who was targeted for recruitment by a Russian spy.

"They're a gold mine", Peter Zeidenberg, who once served on the Justice Department's special prosecution team, said of Trump's tweets.

The Democratic lawmakers' letter asked if Kushner Companies had engaged in any lobbying related to EB-5 program reforms or discussed the program with Kushner since Trump took office in January.
