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.

It is believed it says Trump repeatedly threatened to withhold military aid from Ukraine until, or in exchange for, that country digging up and handing over dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. There is no evidence any dirt was found or even exists.

Pulitzer Prize-winner reveals why the White House thinks Trump’s Ukraine scandal ‘can be spun as positive’

Published

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.

"A senior Democratic aide tells The Daily Beast that the idea of a select panel has 'been raised by some members' as a way to consolidate impeachment proceedings around Donald Trump."
