Washington, DC. When Trump returns, FBI agents will be waiting to speak with somebody on Air Force One, and it’s not President Trump. Jared Kushner the neocon adviser to Trump is a “person of interest” in Trumps’s “Russian connection” investigation.
President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is now a focus of the ongoing FBI investigation into Russian collusion in the US 2016 election campaign.Authorities are investigating a series of meetings held by the White House adviser with Russian officials, sources told The Washington Post.
Ironically, no investigation is underway into Hillary Clinton and the $30 million dollars plus she took from Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk during campaign 2016.
American media speculation was rife Mr Kushner was a “person of interest” in the FBI investigation after the paper claimed a senior adviser to the US President was among people investigators wanted to speak to.
Kushner is being investigated for meetings he held in December with the Russian ambassador and a banker from Moscow.The 36-year-old, who is married to Mr Trump’s eldest daughter, is believed to be the only White House official considered a person of key interest in the probe.These latest revelations come after former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, was appointed special counsel to lead the investigation into the alleged collusion between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
The White House press office said the investigation appeared to be entering a more active phase, with FBI investigators moving from work that has been largely hidden from the public to conducting interviews and using a grand jury to issue subpoenas. The Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the intensity of the investigation was now anticipated to speed up even more.
Kushner’s attorney, Jamie Gorelick, who has worked for the Ukrainian government previously, said in a statement her client would cooperate with the investigation.
