Congressman #Bill Flores (R-Texas) wants #Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner out of the #White House. In an interview with KBTX on Wednesday, the GOP member suggested to the U.S. president that it would do him good "if he removed all his children" from their admin positions.

Russian interference in U.S. elections

His statement came after the presidential son's meeting with a Russian lawyer in the wake of election campaign came to light earlier this week. In fact, Trump Jr. even released his exchange of emails with Rob Goldstone, who reportedly helped in setting up his meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya in Manhattan on June 9, 2016.

The reams of emails released showed that President Trump's eldest son was offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton who was then running against his father for the highest post. Trump Jr. said he initially thought he was meeting Veselnitskaya to discuss American adoption of Russian children.

Although he confessed that he was interested in receiving the offer of Goldstone to attack the Democratic Party's presidential bet, the presidential son said there was "nothing" significant about his meeting with the Russian lawyer.

He even said that he would not have remembered the caucus until he saw the news reports. "It was literally just a wasted 20 minutes, which was a shame," he told Fox News on Tuesday.

The meeting, which took place at Trump Tower, was also attended by Paul J. Manafort and Jared Kushner who submitted confidential government documents to confirm their presence during the meeting. The assembly becomes the first confirmed private meeting between Russians and Trump's campaign team in the wake the of the campaign for the 2016 U.S. elections.

Cong. Flores thought the meeting should not have taken place. “I think he thought he was looking out for his father’s best interest," he said. "I wish that he would get [Trump Jr., Ivanka, and Jared] out of the way so that we could have a professional staff at the White House on policy issues.”

Trump and his family at White House

Ivanka and her husband, Jared, were given their respective positions right after Trump was seated at the White House in January. The businesswoman reportedly works as her father's advisor without salary. Kushner, who is also a senior advisor to the president, was previously questioned for failing to disclose his meeting with Russian officials Sergey Kislyak and Sergei Gorkov in December 2016.

Trump Jr., although he has no official admin position, has recently become even more controversial for his meeting with the Russian lawyer during the election campaign.
