White House communications director resigns amid tensions

Spicer discussed ongoing possible connections to Jared Kushner and Russians, the president's global trip, and other topics.

David Sanger, National security correspondent, The New York Times; author, "Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power".

The White House's troubles make "what was already really hard even harder", said Stier from the Partnership for Public Service.

Members of the press then asked Spicer what Trump meant by the tweet, in particular wondering what "covfefe" means.

Speaking to "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday, Lewandowski said: "When you have a communications team, they have to have that relationship with the president to understand how he communicates".

"They have talked to many people, including me", Bossie said.

Raskin, whose district includes Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Silver Spring, said the report published last week by The Washington Post provides the latest evidence that an independent commission is needed to properly investigate the Trump administration's ties to Russian leaders including Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media", Trump tweeted.

"They can be an incredibly effective tool in the diplomatic tool box", says Richard Moss, a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and author of the book, "Nixon's Back Channel to Moscow: Confidential Diplomacy and Detente".

Recent news stories suggesting that the congressional and FBI investigations may now reach some top White House officials may deter potential nominees from joining the administration, Politico reported on Wednesday.

He says Trump is best served by having staff around him who know him well.

A midnight tweet from President Donald Trump has social media trying to find a meaning in the mysterious term "covfefe". "Why is this the first priority, or one of the first priorities that Mr. Kushner is taking on as a member of the President's staff?"

The president ended his second tweet on the matter by again referring to several congressional investigations and the FBI's probe into Russian Federation as a collective "Witch Hunt!".

It didn't help that Trump, seemingly aware of his typo, goaded the masses to figure out what "covfefe" meant.

He is also purportedly under scrutiny in the FBI's ongoing investigation of potential collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 campaign.

In an interview on Fox News on Tuesday, Conway said Dubke "made very clear that he would see through the president's worldwide trip, and come to work every day and work hard even through that trip because there was much to do here back at the White House".
