Mueller investigating Jared Kushner's business dealings

Jared Kushner

U.S. President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

A spokesman for the office of the special counsel declined to comment, and so did a representative for the director of National Intelligence.

Kushner attorney Jamie Gorelick pushed back on the report in a statement Thursday evening. Russian Federation investigation special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating Kushner's finances. Gorelick pointed out that Kushner has volunteered to speak with the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is leading one of the congressional Russian Federation investigations. "He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry", he added.

FBI agents and federal prosecutors have also been examining the financial dealings of other Trump associates, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Carter Page, who was listed as a foreign policy adviser for the campaign. The Washington Post report suggests that scrutiny has been folded into the special counsel office and includes Kushner's business dealings, though it offers no details on what that scrutiny is.

Robert Mueller III is looking into Kushner's post-election meetings with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, and Sergey Gorkov, who is in charge of the Russian state-owned bank Vnesheconombank, according to a report by The Washington Post.

Comey testified before the Senate last week, and stated that Trump spoke with him privately on several occasions in person and over the telephone.

On Thursday, Trump went on Twitter and called the investigation "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!" The committee, which is investigating Russia's meddling in the presidential election and whether any of Trump's associates had ties with the country at the time, expects Kushner to provide documents and face questions from the senators. Trump also fired James Comey, former FBI Director, in May.

Jeannie Rhee, one of those attorneys, represented Hillary Clinton during her email scandal.

But days later he said in an NBC interview that he had made a decision to fire Comey before getting their input and he was thinking of "this Russian Federation thing" when he did it.

The tweets potentially could put the president into deeper legal peril. The president has denied that he told Comey to drop the Flynn investigation.

According to the news accounts, neither Coats nor Rogers complied with Trump's requests.
