Donald Trump's Lawyer Will Now Be Answering All Russia Related Questions

A top communications aide to President Donald Trump has resigned, in what many inside and outside the White House see as the first shoe to drop before a wider overhaul.

The New York Times and Politico reported Wednesday morning that Trump is planning to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, the worldwide agreement - now ratified by more than 147 countries - to reduce the man-made carbon emissions that are causing global warming.

Trump tweeted after the original post was removed. "It has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration", Dubke said.

Trump should not be allowed to evade accountability in the daily briefing just because it generates negative headlines that prompt angry late night tweets. Today's White House press briefing was audio only, but video of the moment being aired on MSNBC can be viewed in the embedded player above. Dubke founded Crossroads Media, a GOP firm that specializes in political advertising.

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.

The Trump White House has made a decision to completely shut down all lines of questioning on Russian Federation. Second, the idea of using only Russian communications equipment for the proposed dialogue suggests the Trump administration had something to hide from US intelligence agencies. Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is bring considered to play a role, and has been spotted at the White House on several occasions over the past week.

Indeed, Dubke offered his resignation before the president's departure, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told The Associated Press, but offered to stay on during the trip. There were two letters in The News about President Trump being misunderstood.

McCain continued, "And I think that [former FBI Director James] Comey, we know, took action that he did in regards to then-candidate [Hillary] Clinton because of some false news that was being put out by the Russians".

The White House doesn't want to hear any more questions about the Russian Federation investigation.

Multiple reports earlier alleged Kushner was a person of interest in the multi-agency probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, though investigators did not necessarily suspect any wrongdoing.

Associated Press reporter Nancy Benac describes the faceoff as supporters of the president saying it's laudable that Kushner was working even before the inauguration to foster better relations with Russian Federation, particularly with regard to devising a plan for Syria.

She said she did talk to Kushner often, but has not since the news came out last week that he wanted to open a secret line of communication with Russian Federation bypassing formal channels.
