Trump Is Reportedly Blaming Son-In-Law Kushner For Mueller Probe

The widening special counsel investigation that has so far led to three charges against President Trump's former campaign aides is now zeroing in on White House special adviser Jared Kushner, who is Trump's son in law.

CNN reported that Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, turned over the documents to Mueller "in recent weeks".

Other points of focus that pertain to Kushner include the Trump campaign's 2016 data analytics operation, his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Kushner's own contacts with Russians, according to sources briefed on the probe.

The network based its report on "sources close to the White House". You can't go any lower.

Mr Trump continued to dismiss the indictments as "fake news" after their release, and attempted to shift the focus to Hillary Clinton's dealings with Russian Federation.

Investigators are reportedly zeroing in on his role in the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, the CNN reported. During the meeting, the lawyer reportedly lobbied Donald Trump, Jr., Kushner, and then-campaign chair Paul Manafort on overturning the Magnitsky Act.

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.

When Trump spoke this week to Roger Stone, the longtime GOP political strategist who urged the president to run, the president didn't disagree when Stone told him Kushner had given him bad advice.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history".

The White House didn't respond to Vanity Fair's request for comment. "I'm only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress".

The Independent is reporting on claims the US President is "turning" on his Senior White House Advisor in the wake of indictments being issued for two of his former employees.

The investigators are also looking for potential obstruction of justice in Mr Comey's firing, sources familiar with the matter told CNN. They believe that Mueller's history with the federal investigation body will make it very hard for him to undertake a fair investigation of its involvement in this political drama with Russian Federation.
