Trump lashes out at leaks, considers staff upheaval

White House special advisor Jared Kushner son-in-law of President Donald Trump boasts an enormous portfolio of domestic and international responsibilities despite having no experience in politics before the 2016 campaign (AFP  Thomas COEX | Manila Bull

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.

Mr Flynn served briefly as Mr Trump's national security adviser but was sacked in February. On Friday, a report by The Washington Post indicated that Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in December that Kushner wanted to set up a "secret and secure communications channel" between Trump's transition team and the Kremlin.

There is no indication Kushner is now a target of the FBI's probe, and there are no allegations he committed any wrongdoing. Especially when it comes to how he lives his life or runs his White House.

Officials telling CNN the white house is considering creating a war room to manage fallout.

"It's both normal, in my opinion, and acceptable", Kelly said.

Kushner boasts an enormous portfolio of domestic and worldwide responsibilities, underscoring his importance as Trump's chief adviser despite having no experience in politics before the 2016 White House race.

In public on Sunday, Trump and senior administration figures sought to deflect the focus onto "leakers" and the press.

The couple spent the weekend at Trump's Bedminister Golf Club, where they married in 2009, for a planned trip with their three small children.

This is the unstoppable force meeting the immovable object: An angry Trump looking for someone to blame for the ongoing Russian Federation story settles on the one person who has always been deemed un-fireable in his White House.

US job market looks solid 8 years after recession ended
Job growth in health care has averaged 22,000 per month thus far in 2017, compared with an average monthly gain of 32,000 in 2016. Dow futures were up about 67 points, S&P 500 futures were up 5 points, and Nasdaq futures were up 18 points.

The appointment of a new special counsel to lead the Russian Federation election meddling investigation is creating a fair amount of confusion about how Congress should proceed with its investigations.

Ivanka Trump will not be involved in the White House's internal, war room-like operation aimed at developing a rapid-response and communications strategy in an attempt to keep up with the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation, per the administration official. 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.

"They are not our friends", he said.

The tweets came shortly after Trump's return from his first foreign trip. They returned to Washington a few days before it was over, departing from Rome.

The White House has denied that Trump pressured Comey in any way, though the Federal Bureau of Investigation director is believed to have written detailed memos on his discussions with the president that indicate the opposite.

"Qualification number one, Trump trusts him", New York Times reporter Sharon LaFraniere said. "Jared is doing a great job for the country", he told the Times Sunday night. He told NBC that what he heard late past year, while he was still in office, anxious him: "And I think that was the case with all of us in the intelligence community". He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. Firing her husband - or publicly demoting him - is a sure-fire recipe to break that most important bond for Donald Trump.

President Donald Trump is considering overhauling his White House staff and bringing back top campaign strategists, frustrated by what he views as his team's inability to contain the burgeoning crisis involving alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

President Donald Trump isn't a man who gets too bogged down in rules.

She also said Kushner and his father-in-law are similar in a key way: "His experience has been a family business", she said.
