The latest twist involves the president's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, who reportedly tried to set up a back channel for communications between the Trump team and Moscow.
A top White House communications staffer has resigned as President Donald Trump considers a major staff overhaul amid intensifying inquiries into his campaign's dealings with Russian Federation.
Prior to joining the White House, Dubke founded Republican media services firm Crossroads Media, which provides strategy and ad services for political candidates and conservative groups such as GOP operative Karl Rove's super PAC American Crossroads.
"Russian officials must be laughing at the USA & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News", Trump tweeted.

Russians 'boasted spies had links to Trump aides' during election campaign
US intelligence agencies concluded in January that Moscow tried to sway the November vote in Trump's favor. The committee followed that Tuesday by issuing two new subpoenas to Flynn's business.
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus thanked Dubke in a statement and said he had "offered to remain onboard until a transition is concluded". He succeeded Jason Miller, who formerly oversaw the communications operation of Ted Cruz's presidential bid past year before holding an advisory role in the Trump campaign.
Instead, in the first press briefing since President Trump returned from a nine-day trip overseas, Spicer focused on the fact that The Washington Post story, which first reported the request, used anonymous sourcing.
While fielding a question about whether Mr Trump was pleased with his administration's messaging - the part of the job Mr Spicer is responsible for - he retorted by bringing the media into disrepute.
Flynn handed in his resignation in February after it was revealed he misled top White House officials about his contacts with Russian officials. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss private thinking and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
When pressed on whether the president would approve of such a back channel with Russia, Spicer said, "You're asking if he approves of an action that is not a confirmed action".
In a tweet early on Tuesday, Trump shot back against the Russia probes, writing: "Russian officials must be laughing at the USA & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News". She also suggested in the wake of the Trump visit that Europe's relationship with Washington had shifted significantly and reiterated her position that "we in Europe have to take our fate into our own hands". "Very bad for U.S. This will change".
