Trump on Offensive as Kushner in Trouble

But Kushner's communications with the Russians have drawn the interest of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is investigating allegations Russia tried to meddle in the USA election, and whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with agents of the Russian government.

In December - after the election but before Trump assumed office - Kushner met separately with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to Washington, and Sergey Gorkov, the head of the government-owned Vnesheconombank, which has been subject to US sanctions because of its role in Russia's occupation of a part of Ukraine. "I have total confidence in him". "Back channels like this are the regular course of business and that's really all that we know". He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. The investigation into Kushner is reportedly surrounding alleged efforts to create "back channel" communications between the White House and the Kremlin.

In a statement issued to the New York Times, Mr Trump said that his son-in-law was "doing a great job for the country".

Mr Kushner, 36, who is married to Mr Trump's daughter Ivanka, had at least three previously undisclosed contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States during and after the 2016 presidential campaign, seven current and former United States officials told Reuters.

Former director of national intelligence James Clapper said Kushner's links with Moscow "certainly arouses your concern about what is going on, given Russian Federation... is our primary adversary". Kushner initially had come to the attention of FBI investigators a year ago as they began scrutinizing former national security adviser Michael Flynn's connections with Russian officials, the two sources told Reuters.
