Trump Says Has 'Total Confidence' in Son-in-law, Key Adviser Kushner

Speaking on Sunday's news shows, Kelly said he didn't know whether the reports by The Associated Press and other news outlets involving Kushner, who is President Donald Trump's son-in-law, were true. "I have total confidence in him". He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. "In addition to that, and perhaps most importantly, he is a very good person".

Reports about Jared Kushner allegedly discussing setting up a secret communication channel with Russian Federation have left Arizona Sen.

The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee is urging a review of White House adviser Jared Kushner's security clearance following news reports that he sought to set up back-channel communications with Russian Federation.

Back-channel communication with foreign nations of the type that White House adviser Jared Kushner reportedly sought with the Russian government are "the regular course of business", counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday morning.

Ms. Conway declined to comment on The New York Times report that Mr. Kushner met with a Russian banker for reasons the Federal Bureau of Investigation is still investigating, but she did comment on White House Communications Director Mike Dubke's decision to leave the administration.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly is on the defensive amid reports that the president's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner had proposed a secret back channel between the Kremlin and the Trump transition team.

Acknowledging that Kushner's conversations with Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak occurred "during the transition period, I think", Kelly told NBC's Chuck Todd Sunday that he sees no cause for concern. The 36-year-old property heir holds a senior advisory role within the Trump administration, playing an increasingly important role in the development of Mr Trump's foreign policy.




Meanwhile, Trump's personal attorney visited the White House over the weekend sparking speculation that Trump is gearing up for a long legal battle over some of these brewing investigations. In an interview with Australian television ABC News on Monday, McCain said he simply did not like Kushner's possible ties to Russian Federation.

"You've got the ambassador to Russian Federation reporting back to Moscow on an open channel", Graham said. While he has called his first trip overseas a "home run", it was shadowed by reports about Moscow's interference and possible improper dealings with the Trump campaign and associates.

"I would just say that any line of communication to a country, particularly a country like Russian Federation, is a good thing".

The source has told Fox News that Kushner is eager to tell Congress about the meeting and any others of interest.

The Senate and House Intelligence committees are also leading their own investigations, but not with an eye to bringing criminal charges.

Kushner's connection with the Russian Federation probe was alleged in a Washington Post report while Trump was on a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe.
