A face-off between senior adviser Stephen Miller and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner may be brewing as both tackle immigration in very different ways.
Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in a letter to the White House that the use of private email accounts and the messaging application WhatsApp by senior administration officials raises “security and federal records concerns.”

The White House advisers have started touring homes in the District with an eye toward “something more private,” an unnamed source told The Washington Post.
The Washington Post reports that Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. has told his superiors that he and Jared Kushner discussed setting up a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin in December.

Foreign affairs imposed on the Trump administration. Treasury moved to sanction North Koreans believed to have military ties. President Donald Trump said the U.S. would take unilateral action in response to Pyonyang threats. In the Middle East, the administration pivoted from the Assad-must-go stance on Syria, then back again after the Assad regime launched a chemical weapons attack on Syrian rebels. This all occurred just before the arrival of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Mar-A-Lago.
Heading toward April, the Trump administration was operating on several fronts, following the withdrawal of Republican-led legislation revising health care law.
