"Mr. Kushner has consistently said that he will share what he knows about these meetings, and the details pertaining to, which were previously reported in March", she added. Homeland Security chief John Kelly said the latest scandal to engulf the administration was "no big deal".

Trump on Sunday, though, went after leaking of information and warned people not to trust stories that include the words "sources say".

"It is my opinion that numerous leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media", Trump said on Twitter - a likely reference to The Washington Post's story about Kushner on Friday, which was sourced to anonymous USA officials.

The statement was embedded in a broader piece from all star reporters, Glenn Thrush, Maggie Haberman and Sharon LaFraniere, about the growing scandal now engulfing Kushner about his Russian connections.

The President has publicly come out in support of Mr Kushner, saying: "I have total confidence in him".

"The last few days have also shown me that the times when we could completely rely on others are to some extent over", Merkel said in a speech at a climate conference in Berlin on Monday, echoing her language of the day before.

However, he then tweets an anonymous-sourced article that it was the Russians who recommended the back channel, not his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Washington is waiting with bated breath for Senate testimony by former FBI director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump as he oversaw an investigation into possible collusion between the Republican's campaign and Moscow.

Trump tweeted about healthcare and tax reform on Sunday night.

Donald Trump's Jewish son-in-law and key adviser has been caught up in an escalating scandal over the U.S. president's links to Russian Federation, after it was revealed that he set up a secret "back channel" before Trump even took office.

A special counsel is investigating whether Trump aides colluded with Russian officials to help him win the November election, while congressional committees have called on numerous current and former Trump aides to testify. The article said Kushner sought to set up a secret line of communication with Russian Federation during the presidential transition.
