Jared Kushner Is Now Under Criminal Investigation By Special Counsel Mueller: Report

A new report released by The Washington Post revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is now investigating Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner’s business dealings.

The Post spoke with officials in the investigation into the alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, who said that Mueller is now investigating the finances and business dealings of Kushner as well as other Trump associates.

Aside from Kushner, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Carter Page, are also under investigation by the Special Counsel.

“We do not know what this report refers to,” Jamie Gorelick, Kushner’s lawyer, told the newspaper.

“It would be standard practice for the Special Counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to Russia. Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.”

According to another report, Mueller is also looking into whether or not Trump was guilty of obstruction of justice after firing former FBI Director James Comey.
