President Trump tells the New York Times he has "total confidence" in his son-in-law, JaredKushner.
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.
Trump added in the statement that Kushner was "respected by virtually everyone", and was busy working to help save the country "billions of dollars". "In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, he is a very good person". President Donald Trump's son-in-law is now under FBI scrutiny as part of the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
Current and former US officials said Mr. Kushner's activities, like those of many others around Mr. Trump, are under scrutiny as part of the investigation.
The report, which was retweeted by President Donald Trump, quotes a sole anonymous source claiming that during the December meeting "the Russians broached the idea of using a secure line between the Trump administration and Russia, not Kushner".
There has been no denial of the reports by the White House and a number of senior administration officials backed Mr Kushner over the weekend.

Lawyers for Kushner said he was willing to talk with federal and congressional investigators about his foreign contacts. the AP reported.
"Just because you have a back channel, if indeed that's what Jared was after, doesn't mean that he then keeps everything secret", Kelly said on NBC's "Meet the Press".
