Kushner To Head New White House 'War Room'

Trump Returns to Crisis Over Kushner as White House Tries to Contain It

Source: NYT

Mr. Trumps private legal team, led by his New York lawyer, Marc E. Kasowitz, was preparing to meet in Washington to face fresh questions about contacts between Mr. Kushner and representatives of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia. The president may meet with Mr. Kasowitz as early as Sunday, and aides have recruited a series of prominent Washington lawyers with experience in political investigations for Mr. Trump to interview in hopes that they might join the legal team.

Mr. Kushner, who organized the presidents Middle East stops at the start of the foreign trip, chose to return to Washington with several days to go and has been unusually subdued since then. But he has no plans to step down from his role as senior adviser or to reduce his duties, according to people close to him.

Still, there are signs that he is tiring of the nonstop combat and the damage to his reputation. He has told friends that he and his wife have made no long-term commitment to remain by Mr. Trumps side, saying they would review every six months whether to return to private life in New York.

Top Russian Officials Discussed How to Influence Trump Aides Last Summer

Source: New York Times

WASHINGTON ó American spies collected information last summer revealing that senior Russian intelligence and political officials were discussing how to exert influence over Donald J. Trump through his advisers, according to three current and former American officials familiar with the intelligence.

The conversations focused on Paul Manafort, the Trump campaign chairman at the time, and Michael T. Flynn, a retired general who was advising Mr. Trump, the officials said. Both men had indirect ties to Russian officials, who appeared confident that each could be used to help shape Mr. Trumpís opinions on Russia.

Some Russians boasted about how well they knew Mr. Flynn. Others discussed leveraging their ties to Viktor F. Yanukovych, the deposed president of Ukraine living in exile in Russia, who at one time had worked closely with Mr. Manafort.

The intelligence was among the clues ó which also included information about direct communications between Mr. Trumpís advisers and Russian officials ó that American officials received last year as they began investigating Russian attempts to disrupt the election and whether any of Mr. Trumpís associates were assisting Moscow in the effort. Details of the conversations, some of which have not been previously reported, add to an increasing understanding of the alarm inside the American government last year about the Russian disruption campaign.
