Kushner hands over key documents to Mueller in Russian Federation probe

Mueller schedules interview with Hope Hicks

Mueller schedules interview with Hope Hicks

Mueller's team has "expressed interest in Kushner", CNN reported, citing to unnamed sources familiar with the matter.

It appears the first indictments have started taking a toll on the White House - and, in turn, the Trump family - as Vanity Fair reports the president is placing the blame on Kushner for making some decisions, such as firing former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, which eventually led to the Russian probe.

U.S. investigators are also reportedly looking into Tony Podesta, a prominent Democratic lobbyist, and Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman, the Associated Press reports.

Mueller's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. 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. Separately, Trump official George Papadopoulos agreed to a plea deal, admitting he lied to FBI investigators.

"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, according to Vanity Fair.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Sam Nunberg, an associate of Stone who was a Trump campaign operative, told Vanity Fair.

However, it was not clear how Kushner's advice to the President might relate to the overall Russian Federation investigation or potential obstruction of justice, the sources said.

Kushner was at a June 2016 meeting set up by Donald Trump Jr. with a Russian lawyer and former Soviet Army counter intelligence officer at Trump Tower.

The White House didn't respond to Vanity Fair's request for comment.

From the outset of his father-in-law's presidential campaign, Kushner was the architect of Trump's digital, online, and social media campaigns, enlisting talent from Silicon Valley to run a 100-person social-media team dubbed "Project Alamo". "His options are limited, and his instinct is to come out swinging, which won't help things", said a prominent Republican close to the White House.

A 36-year-old Harvard graduate, Kushner is the oldest son of real-estate developer Charles Kushner, and he is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka.

According to reports, Mr. Muller's investigators have begun interviewing witnesses about Mr. Kushner's role in last May's firing of FBI Director James Comey, which rocked Washington. Both men 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.
