Jared Kushner Turns Over Documents to Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Jared Kushner Turns Over Documents to Special Counsel Robert Mueller Jared Kushner Turns Over Documents to Special Counsel Robert Mueller

The report Wednesday, citing sources "briefed on Trump's thinking", said Trump has confided in two right-wing provocateurs, Roger Stone and Stephen Bannon, that he no longer trusts Kushner.

As indictments were unsealed against former Trump campaign staff and special counsel Robert Mueller revealed Monday that at least one ex-Trump campaign adviser has pleaded guilty to federal charges, Trump's frustration with Kushner has grown exponentially, Vanity Fair reported. Trump is frustrated that the investigation seems to have no end in sight, and his anger focuses on Kushner, who is also a senior White House advisor.

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.

According to Vanity Fair writer Gabriel Sherman, those indictments announced loud and clear that the Russian Federation investigation poses an existential threat to Trump's presidency.

Despite the interest in Kushner, who is also a White House adviser, sources described as close to the White House told CNN that Kushner is not the target of the investigation, which raised questions as to who might be the target as the investigation reaches into President Trump's inner circle. But by securing indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, and a surprise guilty plea from foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, Mueller announced loudly that the Russian Federation investigation poses an existential threat to the president. 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. His attorneys have repeatedly said he will cooperate with Mr Mueller's investigators.

Sam Nunberg, who works under Stone and briefly worked for Trump's campaign, then criticized Kushner on the record.

Trump, instead, agreed, an unnamed source familiar with the conversation told Vanity Fair. The White House declined to comment.

It's unclear whether or how much Kushner influenced Trump's decision to fire Comey and there are multiple conflicting sources saying that he either "did not oppose it" or actively advocated for it. Both men pleaded not guilty.

Manafort laundered over $18 million, according to the indictment.

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.
