White House senior advisor Jared Kushner (screengrab)
On Thursday, Al-Monitor reporter Laura Rozen tweeted out a picture that has largely slipped under the radar: a photo of President Donald Trump's son-in-law and policy adviser Jared Kushner dining with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at a function in Brussels in June.

Kushner has long served as an informal foreign policy negotiator for the president, making visits with foreign leaders that would normally be reserved for the secretary of state.
Trump is facing intense outrage and an impeachment inquiry for his attempt to extort Zelensky to help him dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — something that he and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani have effectively admitted to be true.
