The White House said Thursday it doesn't see a problem with Chief of Staff John Kelly attending a briefing at which intelligence and law enforcement leaders brief members of Congress on secret information about the Russia probe.
"I don't see what the issue is," one official told NPR.
President Trump's new lawyer for the Russia matter, Emmet Flood, also attended at least part of one briefing. TV footage showed Flood arriving for a meeting on Capitol Hill.
