Mueller looking into Kushner's contacts with Israeli officials

The investigators are questioning witnesses about Kushner's role in a December 2016 dispute regarding a United Nations resolution condemning Israel's continued construction of settlements in the West Bank, people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal.

White House special adviser Jared Kushner is reportedly anxious that his father-in-law, President Donald Trump, could face legal repercussions from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether associates of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials to influence the 2016 election.

The special counsel's wide-ranging probe is specifically curious about Kushner's contacts while a United Nations resolution pertaining to Israel's occupied settlements was before the General Assembly in December 2016, during the heart of the transition.

Mueller's investigation is also looking into Kushner's role in setting up meetings and communications with foreign leaders during Trump's transition, according to the Journal. Israeli officials subsequently turned to Donald Trump, requesting he pressure other countries to block the bill.

Kushner is also now under scrutiny by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for undisclosed contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States during and after the 2016 presidential campaign.

Tom Reed, R-Corning, were less essential as other upstate Republicans added their votes to a house tax bill passed Thursday. "It abolishes the inheritance tax, allowing him to pass on, tax free, hundreds of millions of dollars to his family".

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. Israeli officials reportedly reached out to senior Trump campaign officials, including Kushner and former White House advisor Steve Bannon, to ask for their assistance in opposing the measure.

Kushner has since submitted the security clearance forms three times and added an addendum with more than 100 interactions or meetings with foreign contacts, including Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, The New York Times reported in July.

The Washington Post reported earlier this year that Mueller was looking into the Kushner's business dealings and finances. She was the Kremlin-linked attorney Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort met with at the family's NY tower in June 2016 to possibly obtain political opposition research on Hillary Clinton.

President Trump's son-in-law and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner was behind the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
