Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner a ‘person of interest’ in FBI’s Russia probe: report

Published

on

Senior aide to President Donald Trump Jared Kushner was suspected of being “under scrutiny” by the FBI, but Thursday it was made official.

An official told NBC News that the Trump son-in-law has “significant information relevant” to the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to hack the election. Kushner may not be a suspect and the FBI may not be charging him but he is being named as a person the bureau is looking into.

The probe is part of a broad investigation into campaign aides as well as staff who joined the transition team and ultimately White House team. Last week, The Washington Post reported that a “senior White House official” that was close to Trump was considered “a person of interest,” prompting speculation that it was Kushner.

The official revealed that Kushner’s scrutiny brings the investigation not only to the doorsteps of the White House but within the Trump family. He falls under a different category than Trump pal Roger Stone or aides Paul Manafort, Carter Page or retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who are all targets in the investigation.

Responding to an opinion from the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel denying a congressional request for President Donald Trump's tax returns, a law professor from Georgetown launched a tweetstorm detailing -- point by point -- what the DOJ is helping to hide from the public.

In the late Friday opinion, the OLC stated: "We advised that, although the text of section 6103(f) does not require the Committee to state any purpose for its request, Congress could not constitutionally confer upon itself the right to compel a disclosure by the Executive Branch of confidential information that does not serve a legitimate legislative purpose.”
