Washington Post: Special counsel is investigating Jared Kushner’s business dealings

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is investigating the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, as part of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to officials familiar with the matter.

FBI agents and federal prosecutors have also been examining the financial dealings of other Trump associates, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Carter Page, who was listed as a foreign-policy adviser for the campaign.

The Washington Post previously reported that investigators were scrutinizing meetings that Kushner held with Russians in December — first with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and then with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a state-owned Russian development bank. At the time of that report, it was not clear that the FBI was investigating Kushner’s business dealings.

The officials who described the financial focus of the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Update #2: Special counsel Mueller reportedly probing finance, business deals of Trump aide Jared Kushner (CNBC)

WNU Editor: Just after saying that more leaks from the Special Counsel's office would only destroy the credibility of the Trump investigation (previous post) .... we now have another leak from the Special Counsel's office. But unlike yesterday where there was no response from the Special Counsel's office, the spokesperson for the Special Counsel was quick to issue a statement this ecvening ....

.... Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment for this article but said that “the Special Counsel’s Office has undertaken stringent controls to prohibit unauthorized disclosures and will deal severely with any member who engages in this conduct.”

It is obvious to me that these "stringent controls" have failed. Special counsel Robert S. Mueller now has a choice knowing too well that these leaks are destroying the credibility of his investigation .... those options are (1) drop this part of the investigation, or (2) failing to find the person responsible for these leaks ....  he will have no choice but to fire his entire staff.

Update #3: Fake news from the Washington Post? This story is eerily similar to a Washington Post story last month .... Breaking: Jared Kushner now a focus in Russia investigation (May 25, 2017. Washington Post).

Who is going to investigate the investigators?

The investigators are Democrat Party contributors.

Aizino,

The investigators are Democrat partisans and Robert Mueller and James Comey are friends. Since friends can't investigatd friends and partisans can't be expected to mete out justice in an equitable manner, this should have been the end of things right then and there.

There's two options. 1.) Scrap the current investigation and start over from scratch with a new leader of the investigation and a new team. 2.) Drop it alltogether.

Option 2 is probably best. More effort has been spent on this than pretty much anything in US history and STILL no one has been sent to jail yet. Either team Trump are the cleanest people in the history of the planet or the prosecution is ridiculously incompetent. After all if the full weight of the US government were to be directed at anyone as it has been against team Trump surely they'd have found SOMETHING and sent SOMEONE on his team to jail by now.

LOL. Trump quits by Labor Day.

Lefty Anon,

If Trump does not, will you quit and admit you were wrong for once in your life?

Is it possible for you to be honest?

Kurshner's 666 Development's underwater with Russian Mob money.

When Mueller brought in the FICA team, investigating Kushner was telegraphed.

Now that Trump Properties has shifted tracks from 2 years ago, when 13% of properties sold, were sold to numbered companies, to now 70% of sales being numbered companies, FICA's gonna be digging deep into Hair Furour himself.

LMFAO,

Are you ever going to choose the USA over the Republican Party?

You gonna move to Putin's Russia when Little Big Boy goes down?

Are you going to friend B. Poster on Facebook, maybe set up a daye on Ashley Madison?

I met my spouse in college in person and I can hang onto a spouse unlike you.

Jay Farquharson said...

LMFAO, both Meuller and Comey are Registered Republicans.

Jay Farquharson said...

LMFAO,

I'm happily married, 17 years now.

LMFAO

Registration means nothing.

- What policies do they promote?

- How do they vote.

Some people go to church, move their lips some, but are not Christian. They go to church to be seen and/or make connections. They could care less about the theology or the belief system.

Aizino Smith said...

Married 17 years.

Such a short time for such an old man.

Jay Farquharson said...

Beat's being unhappily married like you,

and I'm Canadian, so I've got at least 15 to 20 more years of loving life with my wife, despite being an "old man",

As you are a 'Murkin, you'll probably never manage to achieve "old man" status,

My grandparents lived well into their 90s with the American healthcare system.

Sorry old boy, but you will be eating dirt long before me.

Doubt it,

Aizino Smith said...

I am over a decade longer than you.

I don't have risk factors like drugs, smoking drinking diabetes, etc.

All my grand parents lived into their 90s in the US. or elsewhere.

New Mexico exchange is imploding right in time for the off year elections.

80% premium hikes. This after years of Obama premium hikes.
