  • USA investigator Mueller probing Kushner's contacts with Israelis

Mueller's legal team are now questioning witnesses about whether Kushner advocated for Comey to be fired, people familiar with the investigation have said.

Federal investigators are also examining Kushner's role in blocking a United Nations resolution that would have condemned Israel for building settlements in disputed territories, according to The Wall Street Journal, and whether Kushner advised Trump to fire Comey last spring.

Kushner has repeatedly figured into the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election due to his presence at meetings past year with Russian officials and representatives.

Mueller's team is reportedly also investigating Kushner's role in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

The Washington Post reported earlier this year that Mueller was looking into the Kushner's business dealings and finances. Both Kushner and Miller supported Trump's decision and Miller drafted a letter that transcribed the president's thoughts on the matter.

Mueller was appointed as a special counsel in May to lead a federal investigation into allegations that Trump's campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election that put him in the White House.

The Journal reports that Israeli officials reached out to several top officials involved in Trump's transition, including Kushner and former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, and that Mueller's probe is asking questions about those overtures. They also show Kushner's intense involvement in local and state politics, before his father-in-law's surprise election catapulted him to becoming one of the most powerful political figures in the United States.

"I thought it was absurd", Dowd said.

In an 11-page statement provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee in late July detailing his Russian contacts during the campaign and transition period, Kushner said he "did not recall" the meeting with Veselnitskaya and Akhmetshin until he began "r reviewing documents and emails in response to congressional requests for information".
