More Bad News For Jared Kushner as Mueller Follows the Money

More Bad News For Jared Kushner as Mueller Follows the Money

"Nice", Trump wrote on Twitter, later repeating his accusation that the probe is a "witch hunt".

The Justice Department's investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election is looking at Kushner's multiple roles in the Trump administration, including the Trump campaign's 2016 data analytics operation; his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn; and Kushner's own contacts with Russians, according to USA officials briefed on the probe. The Comey dismissal could become part of a widening investigation into whether the President tried to interfere with the ongoing Russian Federation probe.

The new allegations against Trump center on his own admission that he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation investigation, and suggestions he asked several top intelligence officials for their help altering the direction of the inquiry.

In an earlier tweet on Friday, Mr Trump wrote that nobody has been able to show any proof of "collusion with the Russians".

U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has privately acknowledged he may need to recuse himself from matters relating to the Russian Federation probe, given that he could become a potential witness in the investigation, ABC News reported on Friday, citing unnamed sources.

A close Trump associate said this week the president was considering firing Mueller, although the White House later denied it.

The Post reported that FBI agents and federal prosecutors are also looking into the financial dealings of Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former campaign policy adviser Carter Page.

Robert Mueller, appointed as special counsel in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, is scrutinizing Jared Kushner's "finances and business dealings, "The Washington Post reported Thursday citing unnamed "officials familiar with the matter".

Special counsel Robert Mueller has brought 13 lawyers on board to handle the Russian Federation investigation, with plans to hire more, according to his spokesman Peter Carr.

The source spoke on condition of anonymity.

The latest White House crisis struck on the evening of Trump's 71st birthday, after a day in which he had won plaudits for his handling of the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise.

On Thursday an aide to Vice President Mike Pence revealed he was hiring Richard Cullen - a veteran of the Iran-Contra investigation, Watergate and the 2000 vote recount in Florida - as a private lawyer.

"You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!" "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!", Trump tweeted.

Discussing the story on MSNBC Friday morning, Scarborough accused Bannon of leaking that story to the press and later accused Reince Preibus of similarly leaking damaging information about Kushner.

"The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people!"

Trump has called The Washington Post report a "phony story" and a "WITCH HUNT". "I can go around them".
