White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, who installed her in the job, jumped in to defend her.

Michael Cohen met with a Kremlin-connected Russian billionaire in Manhattan 11 days before President Trump's inauguration to discuss their mutual interest in improving U.S.-Russia relations, according to a report.
