Two of President Donald Trump's advisers, daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, are reportedly considering stepping away from public life in Washington, D.C., as part of an agreement to review their situation every six months.
The New York Times reported on Saturday that Kushner, who recently came under fire for allegedly seeking a private line between the Kremlin and Trump's transition team, told friends that he and his wife have yet to commit long-term to the White House, though he has no plans of resigning his position in the administration or relinquishing any of his responsibilities.
In private conversations, Ivanka Trump and Kushner have reportedly complained about what he sees as undue scrutiny for his actions, which he views as reflecting the president's inexperience and unconventional diplomatic methods.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., questioned Kushner's assertion that his request followed usual procedure, saying "I don't like it, I just don't," to Australian news outlet ABC, according to Talking Points Memo.
"I know some administration officials are saying this is standard procedure. I don't think it's standard procedure prior to the inauguration of the President of the United States by someone who is not in an appointed position," he added.
