    The Trump administration is setting up a new group to prevent the Russia investigation from derailing its agenda.

    FOX’s Jared Halpern has more from the White House:

    With the goal of not letting the multiple investigations from the FBI and Congress stall legislative and policy goals, the White House is setting up a special unit made up of lawyers, researchers and communications staff to reply to all requests and questions about Russian election interference.

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway explains:

    (Conway) “Since there’s a special counsel now, some questions should be referred to Mr. Mueller and of course, others should be referred to outside counsel. I mean that’s the appropriate chain of command here.”

    Earlier this week Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters all questions about the Russia investigation will be referred to Marc Kasowitz, the outside attorney retained by President Trump.
