Special counsel Robert Mueller is now conducting investigation against Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner to find out whether his links to foreign business leaders had any influence on Trump administration policy.
According to NBC News, the special counsel has his primary focus on whether conversations Kushner had during the transition with foreign businesses “later shaped White House policies in ways designed to either benefit or retaliate against those he spoke with.”
Four people acquainted with the investigation informed NBC that “Qatari government officials visiting the U.S. in late January and early February considered turning over to Mueller what they believe is evidence of efforts by their country’s Persian Gulf neighbors in coordination with Kushner to hurt their country.”
According to the Washington Post report earlier this week, government officials from four different countries had been arguing of ways to take advantage of Kushner.
Another report also revealed that the Kushner family business has a $1.2 billion debt and it will be due by January of next year.
Kushner’s security clearance was also disparaged this week from “Top Secret” to “Secret.”
