"This is a rumor at this point, and whether it is something that should be followed up on, I'll trust Bob Mueller's judgment", Durbin said on "Fox News Sunday".

"I will tell you that my dashboard warning light was clearly on, and I think that was the case with all of us in the intelligence community - very concerned about the nature of these approaches to the Russians", Clapper said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

It was a tumultuous Memorial Day weekend for the White House, particularly President Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who was the subject of a series of bombshell reports that punctuated the end of the president's first trip overseas with fresh controversy. - Reuters picTrump returned to the White House after a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe that ended yesterday to face more questions about alleged communications between his son-in-law Jared Kushner and Russia's ambassador to Washington.

It also comes as reports circulate nearly daily that Trump is about to start a major shake-up of White House staff after little more than four months in office.

Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on ABC's "This Week" that Kushner should appear before the panel and that his security clearance needs to be reviewed.

In interviews Sunday, Kelly said he didn't know whether the reports were true. "I don't see any big issue here".

The California Democrat says it's a serious allegation to have a key Trump campaign figure seeking secret communications with a country that intelligence experts say intervened in a US election.

Fake news - a mantra of Trump's campaign and presidency. "I'm sure that Mr. Mueller is going to want to look into these allegations as well".

Federal investigators and several congressional committees are looking into any connections between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, including allegations that there may have been collaboration to help Trump and harm his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Dubke said in a statement "It has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration".

A person familiar with the discussions tells The Associated Press that Kushner spoke with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak about creating that line of communication. Lawyers for Kushner said he was willing to talk with federal and congressional investigators about his foreign contacts and his work on the Trump campaign.

Following another week of negative stories about the widening investigation into top Trump advisers' communications with Russian Federation, the president accused the media broadly of creating fake sources within the White House, a charge made without specificity or evidence.
