"I don't like it", the Republican lawmaker said Monday in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's "7:30" when asked about President Donald Trump's son-in-law's possible ties to Russian Federation.
What do we know about the alleged back channel Kushner wanted to establish? Lindsey Graham cast a doubt on reports targeting the White House senior adviser. An official representing the Kushner firm responded to ABC News' questions on March 29, 2017, saying Kushner was the only executive from his family's real estate firm to attend.
But foreign policy experts and former officials told The Washington Post such a request of the Russians would be inappropriate unless carefully coordinated with the Obama administration, which was in office at the time.
Washing your hands? Hot tap or cold?
The study also found that using antibacterial soap is no better or worse than using normal soap when it comes to washing hands. Their guidance focuses on rubbing hands together in various ways to make sure each surface of each hand is clean.
President Trump released a statement to The New York Times on Sunday, offering praise for his son-in-law. That follows a recent report from The Washington Post alleging that Kushner wanted to develop a secure, private line with Russian Federation.
A source told CNN the channel was meant to discuss military operations in Syria and other matters.
Kushner suggested the use of Russian diplomatic facilities as a way to shield pre-inauguration discussions with Kislyak from monitoring, according to The Post. "Whenever you see the words "sources say" in the fake news media, and they don't mention names, it is very possible that those sources don't exist, but are made up by fake news writers". McMaster said that the USA government has established backchannels with foreign governments in the past. He was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in January about his contacts with Kislyak.
During the Monica Lewinsky investigation, the Clinton White House brought on a dedicated group of lawyers and a created a separate media operation to handle investigation-related inquiries so they didn't completely subsume the president's agenda. "But after the secretary of state nomination went to Rex Tillerson, a genuine friend of Putin, Kushner apparently concluded Trump didn't need any such back channel".

The only loss during that stretch was a 6-1 defeat at Milwaukee on Saturday. "Their team is pretty good right now". The Marlins did just fine without Stanton, slugging three home runs and beating the Philadelphia Phillies 10-2.
Graham, a Russian Federation hawk, said he just didn't buy the story as reported by the Post. Kushner's attorney, Jamie Gorelick, told Reuters that Kushner "has no recollection of the calls as described".
Kushner is presently under scrutiny as investigators widened the area of investigation of the Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections.
The president, who has often weighed in angrily about stories suggesting ties between his campaign officials and Russian Federation, has not responded specifically to the Kushner allegations.
Jared Kushner, 36, the U.S. president's most trusted adviser and husband to his daughter Ivanka, was looking to create a "back-channel" to the Russian president when he met Sergey Gorkov in December, it is claimed.
