The communications team has also been forced to respond to the latest reports that Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russian Federation investigation after multiple officials told NBC News that investigators believe he has significant information relevant to their inquiry.

Despite the allegations, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta recently said Kushner and Ivanka's departure is not on the table.

Dubke, 47, a communications firm owner who was brought into the Trump administration in March, resigned on May 18. "Well, I haven't talked to him since all of this came out", Haley said. A final day has not been set, Dubke said.

More attorneys with deep experience in Washington investigations are expected to be added in the weeks ahead. The person, like others, spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss private conversations.

When pressed on whether the president would approve of such a back channel with Russia, Spicer said, "You're asking if he approves of an action that is not a confirmed action". But White House back-channel communications with foreign powers aren't unprecedented: Several ot.

Trump also has renewed his criticism of Germany following Chancellor Angela Merkel's suggestion that her country needs to adopt a more independent stance in world affairs. "Very bad for U.S. This will change", He tweeted at about 7 a.m. ET. The Washington Post and Politico also reported the development.
