Calling Trump "the ultimate decision maker" on the issue, Spicer said that two more candidates were coming to the White House Tuesday for interviews -Chris Wray a former Assistant Attorney General who worked during the President George W. Bush's administrationand John Pistole, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation official who led the Transportation Security Administration under President Obama.

The White House communications director has resigned only three months after being hired by President Donald Trump.

Soon afterward, he tweeted: "Russian officials must be laughing at the USA & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News".

Dubke tendered his resignation just before Trump's "historic worldwide trip" and offered to remain on board until a transition is concluded, Priebus said, adding that Dubke would assist in finding his replacement, and will "be a strong advocate for the President and the President's policies moving foward". It is unclear when his last day on the job will be, but it could be as early as Tuesday following his announcement to friends and colleges. Mike tendered his resignation just before the president's historic global trip and offered to remain on board until a transition is concluded.

Without question, the White House communications team has been less than stellar.

Next, Trump tried to intimidate his former Federal Bureau of Investigation director into silence by threatening to release secret recordings of their conversations - a claim that his communications team had no legally sound means of publicly defending.

The PR chief told Politico he expected to go back to Black Rock Group, his communications and public affairs firm.

Dubke was a rare addition to the White House staff who was not previously associated with Trump, the Trump campaign, or the transition staff.

It's unclear whether other staff moves are imminent.

"I honestly can't say that it's going to be a wave", one official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters at the White House.

As the Russian Federation probe rages and continues to be a big headache for President Trump, POLITICO alleges that he told friends weeks prior to Mr. Dubke's resignation that he was unhappy with how the communications director operates. "I know he's worked very hard here, but people in administrations tend to leave on their own volition as well". He later added: "It's an ongoing conversation, and that's a fair way to put it".

"He has expressed his desire to leave the White House and made very clear that he would see through the president's worldwide trip", she told Fox News.

US President Donald Trump's Communications Director Mike Dubke has resigned, media reported on Tuesday. His departure gives Press Secretary Sean Spicer more responsibilities in the White House. Philip Mudd, a security analyst who worked at the Central Intelligence Agency for 25 years, told The Independent on Tuesday that the President may have been the one who ordered Kushner to set up a secret communications link with the Russians or at least approved it. Mr. Mudd insists that it's very unlikely that Kushner acted alone when he allegedly made a decision to hold a low-key meeting with Russian ambassador Kislyak in December.

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was sacked in February after mischaracterizing his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

Dubke's departure represents the latest in a series of high-profile resignations and forced departures in Trump's administration, just six months into his presidency.

A senior administration official said Kushner was keeping his head down and focusing on work after the foreign trip.

That's when Spicer split, the White House stopped its live stream, and reporters in the briefing room protested with groans and boos.

Trump returned from his overseas trip over the weekend.
