As Crisis Grows, White House Eyes Big Shakeups

US President Donald Trump who was uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter during his nine-day trip abroad resumed his favorite past-time with a tweet storm in which he thundered against Fresh from his travels Trump rails on Twitter about ‘fake news’ AFP by AFP28 May 20170 28 May 2017 28 May 2017

Sunday: The New York Times reported that Kushner was among the voices in the White House that strongly urged President Trump to fire James Comey. That could include Corey Lewandowski, David Bossie, and Sam Nunberg.

Contacts between Trump associates and Russian officials during the campaign coincided with what U.S. intelligence agencies concluded was a Kremlin effort through computer hacking, fake news and propaganda to boost Trump's chances of winning the White House. "They're in full-scale war, and they're thinly staffed".

Kushner discussed setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump's transition team and Russian diplomats to shield pre-inaugural discussion from monitoring, according to a report published Friday by The Washington Post and later confirmed by the Associated Press.

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.

KELLY: I would just tell you, Chris, that I think any channel of communications, back or otherwise, with a country like Russian Federation is a good thing.

Representative Adam Schiff of California said he does see an issue, if Kushner sought those discussions and didn't disclose them.

Castroneves' auto took some light damage to its left rear, but Team Penske was able to make repairs during the ensuing pit stop. The tub of the vehicle remained intact and the 2008 champion was able to climb out on his own to a roar from the crowd.

The California Democrat says it's a serious allegation to have a key Trump campaign figure seeking secret communications with a country that intelligence experts say intervened in a USA election.

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

Federal investigators and several congressional committees are looking into any connections between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, including allegations that there may have been collaboration to help Trump and harm his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. We have one president at a time - does that make a difference?

The Post reported that Kislyak was taken aback by the suggestion of allowing an American to use Russian communications gear at its embassy or consulate - a proposal that would have carried security risks for Moscow as well for as the Trump team.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., no fan of the president, said on CNN's "State of the Union" the allegations should be investigated but he doesn't put too much stock in them, saying they could be an attempt by the Russians to plant disinformation. "I don't trust this story as far as I can throw it".

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.
