Assange Supports Kushner
Julian Assange discusses Kushner’s alleged Russian ‘backchannel,’ bashes CIA
The report claimed U.S. officials intercepted messages sent between Russian operatives discussing Kushner’s alleged attempt to create back-channel communications. According to the Washington Post’s anonymous sources, Sergei Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to America, discussed Kushner’s proposal with his superiors, and it’s a discussion over that conversation that the intercepted communications between other Russian operatives allegedly displayed.
H.R. McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, recently told reporters at the G7 Summit in Sicily, Italy, he wasn’t concerned about the allegation.
“We have back-channel communications with any number of individual ,” McMaster said, according to a Reuters report. “So, generally speaking, about back-channel communications, what that allows you to do is communicate in a discreet manner … we’re not concerned about it.”
