Frank Figliuzzi — former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) — said on Sunday that he thinks President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner potentially faces criminal charges completely separate from those having to do with Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Political reporter Betsy Woodruff of The Daily Beast said that the Trump administration has always feared that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation would veer off of Russian meddling and into questionable financial dealings by members of Trump’s family.
“We also know that Jared Kushner and his family’s business have drawn the attention of investigators into other matters,” Woodruff said.
“I’ve actually said before here on MSNBC that I think Kushner is criminally exposed,” said Figliuzzi.
“I think there’s concerns about the family money,” the former FBI official said, indicating that there are rumors that former FBI Director James Comey was fired because his investigation was getting too close to Kushner family financial deals.
