President Donald Trump has been having major staffing difficulties since he came to office.
Most recently, they have bungled containing the crisis regarding the allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Their mistakes have potentially cost him his top adviser, Jared Kushner. Kushner is President Trump’s son in law, as he is married to Ivanka Trump.
There have recently been stories cooked up by liberal media that claim Kushner has had secret communications with Russia.
He allegedly spoke to the Russian ambassador to the United States about somehow opening up a back-door way to communicate with Moscow over the course of the transition to become President.
President Trump has not gone out of his way to directly defend Kushner yet, but on Sunday, he has tweeted out “fake news media” as well as denouncing leaks coming out of the White House.
From Fox News:
While overseas, Trump’s longtime lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, joined a still-forming legal team to help the president shoulder the intensifying investigations into Russian interference in the election and his associates’ potential involvement. More attorneys with deep experience in Washington investigations are expected to be added, along with crisis communication experts, to help the White House in the weeks ahead.
“They need to quarantine this stuff and put the investigations in a separate communications operation,” said Jack Quinn, who served as White House counsel for President Bill Clinton.
Trump believed he was facing more of a communications problem than a legal one, despite the intensifying inquiries, one person familiar with his thinking told the AP.
