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.

Federal appeals court grants Trump campaign ‘expedited’ hearing after Giuliani bungles case in Pennsylvania
The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has granted the Trump campaign's motion for an expedited hearing in a case that is being handled by attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Last week, federal Judge Matthew Brann tossed out a case in which Giuliani had asked for 680,000 ballots to be invalidated in Pennsylvania. But Giuliani's team had removed legal claims about the demand from its motion to the court.
In his ruling, Brann said that Giuliani could not file an amended complaint in his court. The Trump campaign responded by filing an amended motion for expedited review with the Third Circuit of appeals.
