taormina - US National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is not concerned about the reports that Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and adviser of Donald Trump, tried to open a secret communication line with the Russians even before the president entered the White House. That included the Washington Post.
According to McMaster, that so-called 'backdoor consultation' is normal. 'We have that with many separate countries. In general, that backdoor consultation allows you to communicate in a discreet way. So we are not concerned about that. '

Last week, McMaster's predecessor Mike Flynn, on behalf of Trumps Transit Team, announced a proposal on such a backdoor channel with Russian Ambassador Sergej Kisljak. Kushner would have been there.
