Trump attacks 'fake news' following Kushner Russia reports

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday that numerous leaks from the White House were "fake news", following reports his son-in-law tried to set up a secret channel of communications with Moscow before Trump took office.

But reporters wanted to talk about something else: White House adviser Jared Kushner.

She said she did talk to Kushner often, but has not since the news came out last week that he wanted to open a secret line of communication with Russian Federation bypassing formal channels.

These words come days after reports that Kushner allegedly tried to set up a secret communications channel with the Russians.

President Trump meets with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (l.) next to Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak at the White House on May 10, 2017.

If Kushner loses his security clearance, then he can no longer serve as a top adviser to President Trump, which may be the entire point, to all those anonymous sources who are trying to undermine the Trump presidency.

The White House has not denied the core allegations laid out in the stories, though some White House officials have denied that a back channel request was improper.

President Trump tells the New York Times he has "total confidence" in his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

"It's one of many worrisome bits of evidence, that collectively raise a cloud of suspicion over whether there are any improper contacts between the Trump business, the Trump family, Trump himself and Russian Federation", said Whitehouse. "He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars", he said.

This is not the first time McCain has been vocal about the Trump administration's relationship with Russian Federation. "He just realizes that this is going to be a part of his presidency, and he's going to allocate additional resources to make sure that it doesn't derail him from the rest of the important work that he's trying to do".

She also said the White House is not concerned about the reports Mr. Kushner discussed back-channel communications with the Russians.

Kushner's meetings have been, as expected, supported by other administration figures, including Homeland Security adviser John Kelly, who says Kushner has every right to seek backchannel communications.
