McMaster ‘Not Concerned’ Following Latest Kushner Reports
President Donald Trump’s top advisers are ‘not concerned’ following reports that his son-in-law and a top Russian diplomat may have discussed setting up a secret communications channel. Saturday, advisers H.R. McMaster and Gary Cohn declined to comment on new revelations about Jared Kushner’s communications with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, but noted that the U.S. frequently sets up backchannels to countries for discreet communications.
McMaster said, “we have back channel communications with a number of countries.”
Chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, however, declined to answer questions about Kushner. “We’re not going to comment on Jared,” he said.
Friday the Washington Post stated that Kislyak told his superiors that he and Kushner discussed setting up a back channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin.
