Jared Kushner under Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutiny in Russia Probe

President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser, is under scrutiny by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the Russian Federation probe, the Washington Post and NBC News reported on Thursday.

According to the Post report, the Bureau is looking at meetings Kushner held with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and a Russian banker this past December.

USA TODAY reported last week that a current White House official had drawn the scrutiny of federal investigators, but the individual was not identified. That conversation came two days after national security adviser Mike Flynn resigned under pressure and hours after the New York Times reported "repeated contacts" between Trump campaign associates and senior Russian intelligence officials. This doesn't mean, however, that they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him.

"There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign, but I can always speak for myself, and the Russians - zero", Trump told reporters. Flynn was also present at the early December meeting, and later that month, Flynn held a call with Kislyak to discuss US-imposed sanctions against Russian Federation. Kislyak reportedly orchestrated the meeting between Kushner and Vnesheconombank CEO Sergey N. Gorkov, who was appointed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in January 2016 as part of a restructuring of the bank's management team, Bloomberg reported past year. And NBC News reported, "Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said". Trump himself has reportedly lawyered up, retaining Marc Kasowitz, his longtime lawyer and a close associate, to represent him on all things Russian Federation.

Chaffetz, who said last week he has his "subpoena pen" ready to force Comey or the FBI to turn over the documents, told McCabe that "Congress and the American public have a right and a duty to examine this issue independently of the special counsel's investigation". Moscow has repeatedly denied the allegations and Trump denies any collusion with Russian Federation. Jamie Gorelick, one of Kushner's attorneys and a former deputy attorney general during the Clinton administration, told the Post Thursday that Kushner volunteered to share information about his contacts with the Russians with investigators.

"This is the reality of the world we live in now", a White House official said.

Kushner has agreed to discuss his Russian contacts with the Senate Intelligence Committee - which is conducting one of several investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
