“It’s not a bad thing to have multiple communication lines to any government,” John Kelly told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz.
Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz that he thought Jared Kushner’s back channeling with Russian officials was both normal and acceptable during an interview on Sunday.
Raddatz asked Kelly whether he thought it was appropriate for President Trump’s son-in-law and Senior White House Adviser Jared Kushner to use back channels, or unofficial channels, to communicate with Russian officials as some have reported.
“It’s both normal in my opinion and acceptable. Any way that you can communicate with people, particularly organizations that are maybe not particularly friendly to us, is a good thing,” Kelly told Raddatz.
Kelly concluded, “it’s not a bad thing to have multiple communication lines to any government.”
