Dubke had been in the process of divesting from Crossroads and Black Rock Group, two communications firms at which he worked before joining the administration, and was nearing the point when he would have had to complete the divestiture, a friend said.
As reports regarding senior White House adviser Jared Kushner's alleged dealings with a Russian ambassador remain the focus of most news outlets, yet another report concerning Russia and President Donald Trump has just hit the news. Dubke, who was only on the job for a little over three months, had been a Spicer ally in the White House.
"I'm going to read you a list of White House officials who sometime speak for the Trump administration", the poll question asked.
"Ultimately the best messenger is the president himself", Spicer said on Tuesday.
But both Spicer and Conway have 28 percent saying they do more to help the president, while 42 percent say Spicer does more to hurt and 40 percent say the same of Conway.
Trump is also struggling with his legislative agenda.
But this is the Trump White House we're talking about. The White House has not announced a successor for Dubke, and it's unclear when exactly his last day will be.
Russian government officials discussed having potentially "derogatory" information about then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and some of his top aides in conversations intercepted by USA intelligence during the 2016 election, according to two former intelligence officials and a congressional source.
Blayne Alexander reports the Russian Federation investigation is front and center once again today for the White House with news that presidential confidant and son-in-law Jared Kushner tried to create a secret backchannel with Russian Federation during the transition. The person wasn't authorized to publicly discuss private policy deliberations and insisted on anonymity.
Flynn handed in his resignation in February after it was revealed he misled top White House officials about his contacts with Russian officials.
The veteran GOP strategist resigned on May 18, and Trump accepted immediately, Dubke said, adding that he offered to stay through the president's first foreign trip to ensure there was a smooth transition as he exited. The official said Kushner was eager to share what he knows with Congress and other investigators. "Very bad for U.S. This will change".
