Is Jared Kushner next to be indicted in Russian Federation investigation?

  • President Trump addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time on February 28th 2017

The press has reported that when Bannon served in the White House he was involved in deliberations regarding the Comey firing and the Russian Federation investigation.

US President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has turned over documents to Special Counsel Robert Mueller as investigators have begun interrogations about the senior advisor's role in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, the media reported.

"Here's what Manafort's indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization", Nunberg said. The president's son-in-law is not a subject of the ongoing investigation, the report added. However, in July, it was reported, and later Kushner confirmed, that he met Russian during Trump's presidential campaign, however, "did not collude with Russians".

Kushner, whose appointment as a top White House employee prompted criticism owing to his close ties with the Trump family, has been regarded as one of the most influential aides of the POTUS, in fact, he could be more influential than the POTUS himself.

CNN reported, citing an unnamed source familiar with the matter, that Kushner voluntarily gave Mueller documents from the campaign and the transition similar to the materials he gave to congressional investigators.

Mueller's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election - and whether Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow to influence the outcome - led to the indictments on Monday of Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Manafort's past business associate Rick Gates.


A White House official said the Mueller team's questions about Kushner are not a surprise, and that Kushner would be among a list of people who investigators would be asking about.

Former White House officials are barred from "contacting any part of the executive branch, including the president, with the intent to influence official decisions in any particular party matter in which the former official participated personally", according to the attorneys.

It is possible that the Vanity Fair story was planted by Bannon or Stone, in order to deflect from their responsibility for the Russian Federation scandal, .

Trump made the purported remarks during a phone call with former White House Chief Strategist, and alleged Kushner adversary, Steve Bannon. Both pleaded not guilty.

Earlier this week Mr. Mueller's probe was the center of attention when it charged Mr. Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates - with conspiracy and money laundering.
