Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, the pressure has continued to mount in regards to what relationship the campaign had with Russia. With Trump now in the White House, reports continue to expose the communication that went down between the president's advisors and the Kremlin.

From Russia with Love

The biggest conspiracy that has hung over the head of President Donald Trump since the early days of his campaign has been what relationship he and his team have had with Russia. With Trump refusing to release his tax returns, news outlets have speculated as to what financial information he could be hiding that would expose his ties back to the Kremlin.

Since the election, it's been confirmed that Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee with the intent on helping Trump reach the White House. In recent weeks, cabinet members and advisors, including former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, have been caught engaging in communication with Russian officials. As reported by the New York Times on March 2, the White House is now admitting to the wrongdoing.

According to the report in the New York Times, Donald Trump is now admitting that his advisors have had contact with Russia.

Michael Flynn had an "undisclosed meeting with the Russian ambassador in December to 'establish a line of communication,'" the report confirms. In addition, Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, took part in a meeting at Trump Tower in New York City that also involved Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. While it's unknown how often the two sides communicated, Trump and his administration have finally come clean on the issue after weeks of calling the reports "fake news."

Double trouble

The confirmation about Michael Flynn comes just a day after the Washington Post broke a bombshell story about Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In the Washington Post report, Sessions was found to have had multiple conversations with a Russian offical, contradicting what he spoke about during his Senate confirmation hearing just last month. Congressional Democrats were successful in forcing Flynn to recuse himself from the investigation into Russia's tampering of the 2016 election, though their call for the attorney general to step down have not received a response from the administration.
