"I think the president should step aside and focus on his agenda". Trump has entertained bringing his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and former deputy campaign manager, David Bossie, more formally back into the fold.
Trump hasn't publicly commented on the White House decision to divert scandal questions.
U.S. President Donald Trump's communications director is leaving the job, the White House said on Tuesday, as the president considers wider staff changes to try to contain political damage from investigations into Russian Federation and his presidential campaign. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said "I don't like it", when asked about Kushner's attempt to set up a secret communication channel.
Straight sets wins for Nadal and Djokovic
Roberto Bautista, seeded 17th, also moved to the second round after beating Australian John Millman 6-2, 6-2, 0-6, 6-1. The world number two Serb, who could meet Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, beat Marcel Granollers 6-3 6-4 6-2.
Kushner is now under FBI scrutiny as it investigates meetings he had with Russian officials during the transition period following the November election, though it does not mean he is the target of the investigation.
Perhaps the biggest bombshell to come out of the gaggle was the White House's shift on the Russian Federation investigation.
The president seems uninterested in the impact that Russian Federation had on the 2016 election, portraying investigations surrounding such as efforts to discredit his election as president. Through the laughter, though, you can hear that they're also trying to ask questions about what the president meant by "covfefe", with each voice pronouncing the word differently.
The Post reported that Kushner requested the secret and secure communications line with the Kremlin during a meeting with Kislyak on December 1 or 2 at Trump Tower in New York City.
He said that he believes Trump's presidential performance "has been quite poor" so far, but he added that Trump has grounds to say that the media is biased against him. The subpoenas were approved for Flynn and Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen and their related businesses. The official said Kushner was eager to share what he knows with Congress and other investigators.
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus thanked Dubke in a statement and said he had "offered to remain onboard until a transition is concluded".
