  • Mueller Investigating Kushner's Contacts With Israeli Officials

Mueller's investigators are also looking into Kushner's role in setting up meetings and communication with foreign leaders during Trump's transition, according to the Journal.

"That's going to then lead the special counsel folks to start looking into that, to all the different contacts he's had", Wright, who worked under the Obama administration, said.

According to the WSJ, the Mueller team is now questioning witnesses about Kushner's involvement in that controversial resolution, when Israeli officials asked the Trump team to help block the UNSC vote with a U.S. veto, even though Trump was not yet in office.

Kislyak adapted a meeting amongst Kushner and the CEO of Russia's Vnesheconombank, Sergei Gorkov who was chosen by Russian President Vladimir Putin in January 2016 as part of a reforming of the bank's management team.

The paper claimed that several sources involved in the investigation said that Kushner had spoken with senior Israeli officials who sought to thwart a UN Security Council's resolution which condemned Israel's occupying activities in East Jerusalem and the West Bank as illegal under worldwide law. The issue was particularly politically charged because of Obama's friction with the pro-Israel world and the presumption at the time that any United States administration would shield Israel from resolutions running counter to its policies.

On Nov. 21, a Republican with close ties to the White House asserted that Kushner's role in the Trump administration had been significantly downsized by White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Kushner reportedly asked a friend whether the probe would grow big enough to "get the president".

"I have never seen that level of mistakes", director of the National Background Investigations Bureau Charles Phalen told a House subcommittee during a hearing. In an 11-page statement issued in July, Kushner said that he and Gorkov did not discuss sanctions or his family real-estate business in their brief-sit down at the end of past year, but Mueller's team has reportedly questioned those around Kushner regarding the meeting.

"(I) f you look at the content of these emails, he's the hero", Lowell said of Kushner. "The use of real estate transactions to hide money and possible money laundering I think is definitely a possibility".
