NYTimes: Kushner Attempted to Set Up Direct Line to Putin NYTimes: Kushner Attempted to Set Up Direct Line to Putin

President Trump on Tuesday retweeted a news article based on one anonymous source who disputes other reporting that Jared Kushner sought to establish a secret communications line with the Kremlin.

President Donald Trump on May 28 fired off five tweets denouncing the "Fake News Media", most notably warning his 30 million followers to be wary of reports that cite unnamed sources.

"It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media", Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts on Sunday.

White House aides also told the Journal that "for all the media focus on Mr. Kushner's Russian Federation conversations, he still hasn't been contacted by investigators".

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. According to the Times, that meeting has come under increasing scrutiny from investigators examining the possibility of collusion between the Russian government and individuals with ties to Trump's 2016 campaign. He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programmes that will save our country billions of dollars.

May 30, 2017The Fox News report Trump shared is titled "Jared Kushner didn't suggest Russian communications channel in meeting, source says".

Vision: Foo Fighters, Run
If " Run " is any indication, their upcoming album, which is now untitled, is a return to full-speed-ahead rock. The band has a slew of worldwide tour dates scheduled for this summer.

Russian Federation denies any involvement and the White House says there was no collusion. "In addition to that, and perhaps most importantly, he is a very good person".

There has been no indication that Mr Kushner, who returned from Mr Trump's first foreign trip as president with his wife Ivanka on Friday, may be stepping down from his role as adviser.

The Post based its story on intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by US officials and leaked to the press.

Schiff was particularly concerned about a Washington Post report that the back channel would have been conducted at a Russian diplomatic facility to avoid monitoring in US communications systems.

Trump's longtime lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, has joined a still-forming legal team to help the president shoulder the intensifying Russian Federation investigations. Officials said he misled Vice President Mike Pence about whether he and the ambassador had discussed USA sanctions against Russian Federation in a phone call. On May 28, former New York Observer editor-in-chief Elizabeth Spiers tweeted that Kushner told her that Trump "doesn't really believe" that Obama was not born in the United States, and that he only propagated the conspiracy because "he knows Republicans are stupid and they'll buy it".
