Jared Kushner's team turned over documents to special counsel in Russian Federation investigation
Nov 03, 2017, 00:26
Mueller's investigators have been interested in Kushner, who is also a White House senior adviser, as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, with particular interest in Comey's firing, according to CNN.
Support for impeachment has flared at the fringes of Democrats in Congress, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have tamped down talk of impeachment proceedings as premature while special counsel Robert Mueller continues his investigation. The focus on the Comey firing goes to a larger question about the involvement in possible obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation investigation.
The president also didn't disagree when longtime adviser Roger Stone also pointed a finger at Kushner.
When the subject of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump came up, Schweizer was less than impressed. Emails showed that Trump Jr. was promised dirt on soon-to-be Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, though it was unclear if that material ever was provided during that meeting.
Kushner has denied any wrongdoing or improper communications with Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign. Kushner didn't convince him to fire Comey, he was dying to fire Comey. The White House declined to comment.
Still, three advisers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal dynamics, said reports of a shellshocked team had been overstated, although some conceded that word that Sam Clovis, an early aide on Trump's team, had been interviewed by Mueller's team had caught some advisers off guard. White House sources say it was the President alone who made that decision after watching Comey's congressional testimony May 3.
Kushner, whose appointment as a top White House employee prompted criticism owing to his close ties with the Trump family, has been regarded as one of the most influential aides of the POTUS, in fact, he could be more influential than the POTUS himself. Some people close to the White House believe it simply reflected a political neophyte wanting to get rid of a presidential enemy without understanding the ramifications, or a son-in-law trying to please his father-in-law and boss. Bannon has been offering Trump possible strategies for how to push back against Mueller's tireless investigation.
The indictment against deputy campaign manager Rick Gates, left, came as no surprise to the administration, Trump said. Both pleaded not guilty.

The report revealed that other witnesses have been questioned about Kushner specifically, sources told CNN.
Trump, meanwhile, has reacted to the deteriorating situation by lashing out on Twitter and venting in private to friends.
