Special counsel Mueller investigating Jared Kushner's finances

  • Special counsel Mueller investigating Jared Kushner's finances

Kushner has reportedly attended meetings with the head of a Russian state-owned bank. The newspaper reported people close to the investigation said Kushner was: "being investigated because of the extent and nature of his interactions with the Russians". Now, according to The Washington Post, special counsel Robert Mueller is also looking into the Kushner's business dealings.

"They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story".

"We do not know what this report refers to", Gorelick said.

The media's record with anonymously-sourced stories, particularly concerning the Russian Federation investigation, has been mixed as of late.

Kushner's company had been seeking financing for a $1.8 billion purchase of an office building on Fifth Avenue in NY, the Post reports.

As Mueller assembles his investigative team, statements by Trump's friend Christopher Ruddy this week set off new questions.

Previously, it was reported that Kushner worked to establish a secret channel of communication between Moscow and the Trump team during the post-election transition phase.

Those meetings raised suspicions when they were revealed to the public. Coats and Rogers have testified that they were not pressured by the Trump administration.

Trump also compared his position to the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server in another tweet.

The former director of the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, is scheduled to appear June 21 in an open session before the House of Representatives' intelligence committee, which is looking into Russian activity during the 2016 US election campaign.

Flynn was sacked after it was learned that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his discussions with Ambassador Kislyak.

Mueller is in the preliminary stages of his probe and has recruited a team of top investigators experienced in money laundering, campaign finance violations and eastern European organized crime.

However, the FBI has not confirmed that Trump's son-in-law was under the bureau's investigation at any point.

White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner sits with his wife Ivanka Trump (L) at President Donald Trump's joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S. March 17, 2017.

A week after Comey's firing, Mueller was appointed as special counsel to lead the probe.

Ruddy, who had been at the White House on Monday, told PBS that Trump is considering terminating the special counsel.
