The CNN reports that the development is an indication that the ongoing investigation into Russian’s interference in the US presidential election is closing in on Donald Trump’s inner circle. The cable network also notes that the investigation has ‘extended beyond the 2016 campaign to actions taken at the White House by high-level officials,’ while noting that ‘it is not clear how Kushner’s advice to the President might relate to the overall Russia investigation or potential obstruction of justice.’ Moreover, Kushner’s role in the firing ex-FBI chief, Comeyis also under investigation.
Furthermore, investigators are questioning how a statement was issued in the name of Donald Trump Jr. regarding a Trump Tower meeting and about the circumstances surrounding the departures of other White House aides, a source also told CNN. Kushner attended the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between top Trump campaign officials and a cadre of Russian figures, including some with links to the Kremlin. It was arranged after Trump Jr. was told that the Russian government wanted to pass along damaging information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as part of its pro-Trump efforts. The meeting was also attended by Paul Manafort, who was Trump’s campaign chairman.
Meanwhile, the CNN was unable to get comments from Kushner’s lawyer, the White House and spokesman for the the Muller.
