Trump National Security Adviser ‘Not Concerned’ With Latest Reports About Kushner
From The Daily Caller by C Ross
National security adviser H.R. McMaster said Saturday that he is “not concerned” with a report alleging that President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, asked Russia’s ambassador about setting up a secret communications channel with the Kremlin.
“We have backchannel communications with a number of countries,” McMaster said in a press conference in Italy.
“What that allows you to do is communicate in a discreet manner so I’m not concerned.”
On Friday, The Washington Post reported that during a meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak at Trump Tower in early December, Kushner inquired about the possibility of communicating with the Kremlin outside of the detection of the U.S. government.
