Special counsel Robert Mueller has expanded his investigation into Jared Kushner beyond contacts with Russia, to include business dealings with two additional foreign powers during the Donald Trump transition, CNN reported Monday.
Kushner, a senior White House advisor and presidential son-in-law, has been in crushing debt due to a real estate investment gone bad at 666 Fifth Ave in New York City.
Kushner allegedly sought out Chinese investors during the transition.
CNN also reports Mueller’s team is questioning witnesses about Kushner seeking financing from Qatar for the same property.
