MSNBC: WaPo Reports Russian Amb. and Kushner Discussed Secret Communications Back Channel

Marcus: ‘It appears there is this unusual-sounding request for some kind of back-channel communication with the Russians during the transition’

KORNACKI: "We are going to change gears right here because I’ve just been handed this. This is hot off the press. “The Washington Post,” posting a story with the headline, Russian ambassador told Moscow that Kushner wanted secret communications channel with Kremlin. The idea here that Kushner — Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussing the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between the trump transition team and the Kremlin using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their discussions from monitoring according to U.S. Officials briefed on intelligence reports. That’s from this report."
