Trump Aides Mum on Kushner-Russia      05/27 09:16

   The latest on developments involving possible connections between Russia and 
the Trump presidential campaign. 

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Latest on developments involving possible connections 
between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign (all times local):

   10 a.m. 

   Some of President Donald Trump's top aides are refusing to address reports 
that Trump's son-in-law -- White House adviser Jared Kushner -- and a Russian 
diplomat may have discussed setting up a secret communications channel between 
the Trump transition team and the Kremlin.

   Questions about the reports came up when Trump's national security adviser, 
H.R. McMaster, and economic aide Gary Cohn met with the media in Sicily on 
Saturday --- just before Trump headed back to Washington from his first foreign 
trip as president.

   McMaster and Cohn are declining to comment on new revelations about Kushner 
communications with Russia's ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

   And here's just what Cohn said: "We're not going to comment on Jared. We're 
just not going to comment." That came after repeated questions from reporters.

   McMaster says that in general, "we have back channel communications with a 
number of countries" and doing that "allows you to communicate in a discreet 
manner."
