Kushner, Russian ambassador discussed setting up secret communications channel

Kushner, Russian ambassador discussed setting up secret communications channel

The White House did not respond to a Reuters request for comment.

The report said the request was made in December at Trump Tower in NY.

Jared Kushner and Russia's ambassador to Washington allegedly discussed setting up a secret communications channel to cloak contacts between Moscow and Donald Trump's White House transition team, it was reported.

Kushner has already volunteered to speak to Congress about those meetings, and his attorney says he's willing to cooperate with any additional investigations. "He has no recollection of the calls as described", she said.

Reports in the United States say investigators believe he has relevant information, but he is not necessarily suspected of a crime. The meeting was also attended by Michael Flynn, who served as the White House national security adviser until he was forced to step down for failing to properly disclose contacts with Russian officials and discussions pertaining to sanctions.

Trump ruffles feathers by calling Germans "bad" _ on trade
BMW's largest assembly plant is in Spartanburg, South Carolina, while Volkswagen has a big factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee . But many German vehicle companies build their cars in the US and export them from the South. "It's not gonna happen".

Mr Kushner's lawyer has previously said his client would co-operate with any inquiry.

Shoes continue to drop in the investigation into the Trump campaign's possible connections to Russian Federation. And less than two weeks later, the idea was dropped, said the report. What they are hiding could be the key to unraveling the mystery behind the Trump campaign's relationship to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

While the FBI is investigating Mr Kushner'€™s contacts with Russian Federation, he is not now a target of that investigation, the current law enforcement official said.

Kushner is Donald Trump's son-in-law and a trusted adviser to the president.

The article comes one day after the Post reported that Kushner is under investigation as part of the FBI's probe into whether Trump's campaign team actively colluded with Russian officials to try to sway the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations and Trump denies collusion with Russian Federation.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer later suggested that Trump simply didn't hear Merkel's request, the Independent reports . European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said he had described Brexit in a meeting on Thursday with U.S.

A secret line with Russia could have allowed the Trump transition and Russian officials to communicate outside of the scrutiny of the departing Obama administration. The omissions were described as an "administrative error" by Gorelick, who said additional information about his meetings were provided to the Federal Bureau of Investigation the day after he submitted his incomplete clearance application.

But there is one chore Trump assigned to Kushner that he can carry out - criminal justice reform.

The meeting, as well as the communications of Americans involved, were not under US surveillance, according to the Post.

Earlier this week it was reported that the FBI was investigating his contacts with Russian officials.

The FBI's Russian Federation probe is being overseen by former bureau director Robert Mueller, who was appointed as a special counsel by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein after Trump fired Comey.
