Trump hasn't publicly commented on the White House decision to divert scandal questions.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Wednesday that questions related to the investigation potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation will now be referred to President Donald Trump's personal lawyer.
Dubke offered his resignation earlier this month, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told The Associated Press on Tuesday, but offered to stay on during the president's first foreign trip.
It isn't the White House press corps that deserves answers about Kushner's behavior and what, if any, connection there is between Russian hacking of the election and the Trump team; it's the people who elected him to office.
Now there's a communication shake up at the White House, and it started yesterday morning, on Tuesday morning.
"It was insane", she said. "I see him emotionally withdrawing".
"He wants to know if he really did it", Kushner said of Trump, "and if it was really level".More news: China vows to uphold climate pact after U.S. pullout

Lewandowski did not say if he has been contacted by Trump or anyone on his staff about returning.
But press secretary Sean Spicer, addressing the issue in a press briefing for the first time Tuesday, declined to elaborate on the objective of the Kushner-Gorkov back channel or what the president knew about it. Both Lewandowski and Bossie visited the White House Monday night, according to two people familiar with the meeting, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a private get-together.
The New York Times reported that the White House reached out to four different people about becoming the president's new communications director, but all four "declined to be considered".
A midnight tweet from President Donald Trump has social media trying to find a meaning in the mysterious term "covfefe".
That request, if granted, would be an extraordinary step in the ongoing congressional investigation of the Trump campaign's communications with Russian Federation - and the FBI's inquiry of Kushner's talks with the Kremlin, which have gained greater significance in recent weeks.
Controversy over the Russian Federation issue deepened after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey earlier this month, leading to allegations by critics that the president sought to hamper the agency's investigation of the matter.
Opponents of the Trump administration were quick to take the opportunity to accuse Kushner of potentially committing espionage and Democrats have called for his security clearance to be removed till the investigation concludes.
