White House Functioning Beautifully Despite Russia Hoax

White House Functioning Beautifully Despite Russia Hoax

Flores questioned Trump Jr.'s decision to attend the Russian meeting, which took place June 9, 2016, at Trump Tower in NY, and has led to significant backlash and only furthered allegations that the Republican campaign colluded with Russia to discredit Clinton and win the Oval Office past year.

Trump's team of personal lawyers, already taken aback by the infighting in the White House, are now grappling with restoring some order and discipline to how things get done moving forward, especially with respect to anything Russian Federation.

Flores later issued a statement praising the President as well as his family members' success in private businesses.

"Most of the phony politicians who are Democrats who I watched over the last couple of days - most of those phonies that act holier-than-thou, if the same thing happened to them, they would have taken that meeting in a heartbeat", Trump said. "Given the liberal media's unwavering scrutiny of the Trump administration, it may be beneficial for the president to do all he can to remove any distractions from the administration so that he can focus on our conservative agenda".

Marc Kasowitz, Trump's chief attorney, is trying to wedge some separation between all of the legal teams as well as making it a priority to be the first to know something, not the last, as was the case last weekend about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer, according to Politico. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued Kushner should lose his access to sensitive information. "You do it multiple times, that's arrogant and a crime". His encounters with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, which he failed to disclose on his security clearance forms, were apparently not particularly memorable.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Lindsay Walters, however, shut down the reports and asserted that the sources claiming such decisions are absolutely wrong. Trump has defended his children several times this week, including Trump Jr. and Ivanka. "It was a meeting that went very, very quickly, very fast".

Wasserman Schultz made clear that Kushner was the target of the measure. Eldest daughter Ivanka Trump and Kushner, though, are top advisers to the president, with the former previously labeled a so-called "whisperer" capable of corralling her father at some of his more combustible moments.
