Epshteyn, a Trump campaign adviser who briefly served in the White House press office, confirmed to ABC News that he has received a lengthy list of questions from the House Intelligence Committee.

"He's always proven that", said Mr Spicer, "that he is the best messenger not just for what he wants to articulate but that the American people resoundingly chose him as their president - because he understands the frustrations and concerns and values of the American people and he is probably the best person to communicate that". "I think that is troubling".

The White House announced Tuesday that communications director Mike Dubke has resigned, news that comes amid swirling rumors of a major staff overhaul in the West Wing.

"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.

All of the White House-centred drama has begun to irritate congressional leaders, who are hoping to continue focusing on healthcare and tax reform when members of Congress return to Capitol Hill next week.

Aside from Spicer, who lobbied for Dubke's hiring, the communications director "never really had a senior patron or anyone who really cared about him on the staff".

During the abbreviated question-and-answer session, Spicer faced tough questions on several issues, including alleged ties between key administration officials and Russian Federation.

The communications team has also been forced to respond to the latest reports that Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russian Federation investigation after multiple officials told NBC News that investigators believe he has significant information relevant to their inquiry. Trump will also take more questions directly from the media, it reported.

"What your question assumes is a lot of facts that are not substantiated by anything but anonymous sources that are so far being leaked out", the spokesman said.

"That's the kind of thing that the BBC and, ultimately, a reporter who's now joining The New York Times push out and perpetuate with no apology", Spicer said as he pointed out The New York Times reporter Peter Baker.

Old campaign hands, like the pugnacious Corey Lewandowski, are being considered for White House jobs and the president could be hitting the road for more unscripted big-venue rallies with his supporters.

The resignation came as the White House changed its communications strategy and is offering fewer press briefings.

Bossie told "Fox & Friends" that the Trump administration has reached out to him but hasn't offered him a job yet.

The reshuffle follows reports of disarray in the White House communications team. He is also said to be putting together an outside group to handle all Russia-related inquiries.

To most observers, President Trump's first overseas trip was either a moderate success that was at times overshadowed by viral GIFs or a disaster that damaged the United States' relationships with longtime European allies. Mr Clinton was eventually impeached for lying under oath about his affair with White House intern Ms Lewinsky.

"He never really got over that", the source close to the White House said.

"It's one of many worrisome bits of evidence, that collectively raise a cloud of suspicion over whether there are any improper contacts between the Trump business, the Trump family, Trump himself and Russian Federation", said Whitehouse. "That's not how politics works".
