Report Kushner Worried Mueller Will 'Get' Trump
By Robert Fowler
Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, is anxious about the widening scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Vanity Fair reported.
Washington custom dictates that a president-elect is not expected to come to the nation's capital until the inauguration other than for a few substantial policy or procedural discussions with the outgoing administration.
According to the WSJ, the Mueller team is now questioning witnesses about Kushner's involvement in that controversial resolution, when Israeli officials asked the Trump team to help block the UNSC vote with a United States veto, even though Trump was not yet in office.
Two Republicans who have spoken with Trump recently told Vanity Fair that he has been "frustrated" with Kushner's advice, including when he pushed the president to dismiss Comey. The resolution reiterated that Israeli settlement was a "flagrant violation" of worldwide law. Israeli officials reportedly reached out to senior Trump campaign officials, including Kushner and former White House advisor Steve Bannon, to ask for their assistance in opposing the measure.
Kushner is also being asked about contacts with foreign leaders and his role in the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, according to the report.
Then-candidate Trump disparaged the resolution one day prior to the United Nations vote and said it should be vetoed. On May 18, Rosenstein announced that Mueller would work as a special counsel to determine the extent of the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation and whether or not the president obstructed justice by firing Comey, according to The Washington Post.
Robert Mueller's team is apparently also looking into a number of meetings that Kushner tried to broker with foreign leaders.
He has taken a leading role in efforts to jump-start Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts, bringing him to Israel several times since Trump took office.
Kushner is a main focus of Mueller's probe into a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting that was attended by a Kremlin-connected lawyer who had promised "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.
