Nikki Haley Defends Kushner, Says He Will Continue 'Doing His Work'

Irune Rengel | 03 Junio, 2017, 23:26

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday referred all questions related to the FBI's Russian Federation investigation from now on to President Trump's lawyer, Marc Kasowitz.

With someone so close to Trump in the crosshairs, special counsel Robert Mueller has every reason to examine any relationships between the Trump campaign and Russian officials or oligarchs in minute detail - and also to look closely at any Russia connections the Trump and Kushner family business empires might have. But while Bannon's name has not come up publicly in the Russian Federation investigation, at least thus far, Kushner is now reportedly a focus of the FBI probe.

A source close to Kushner told CNN on May 25 that he had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It makes Kushner's silence all the more unusual.

Yesterday Politico reported that Kushner is back in the West Wing and he continues to lead meetings despite the rising tide of Russia-related questions.

Habrá repercusiones fuertes por la salida de EU del Tratado de París
La presidenta Michelle Bachelet había señalado en su cuenta de Twitter que "Chile está sufriendo el cambio climático y nos hemos comprometido a combatirlo".

The question Spicer declined to take on Tuesday was direct: Did Trump obstruct justice in his conversations with James B. Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director he fired on May 9?

Although Trump regularly denies associations with Russia, he, his Trump Organization and his family have had financial relationships with Russians in the USA for decades in the form of real estate deals and transactions with Russian banks.

In fact, in a very serious tone - I couldn't see his face because the White House had announced today's press briefing would be off camera - Spicer seemed to suggest the tweet was some sort of purposeful inside joke.

Fresh off Trump's first official trip overseas, his administration is looking for ways to respond more aggressively to allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and revelations of possible ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow. The official said Kushner was eager to share what he knows with Congress and other investigators. We know the "covfefe" mockery isn't going to do the job, so does his worldwide trip offer any clues?

The Post's report says that Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, told superiors that it was Kushner who broached the subject.

Things got decidedly more cryptic when Spicer was inevitably asked what the hell "covfefe" means.

No one - not even me - would make the case that Dubke was a hugely influential presence in the White House or that his resignation will fundamentally alter the way President Donald Trump operates. Using people such as Kushner to accomplish it also is normal.

A senior administration official said Kushner was keeping his head down and focusing on work after the foreign trip.

Critics call it a giant step over the line for a private citizen to try to set up covert communications with a hostile power like Russian Federation, particularly after USA intelligence agencies accused Moscow of trying to interfere in the election to help Trump. Read the full story here. But even before his formal appointment, Kushner played a significant role in his father-in-law's presidential campaign. One element that is of interest to investigators is the different explanations that Gorkov's bank and the those around Kushner gave for the objective of the meeting.
