Jared Kushner Under Scrutiny in Russia Probe, Say Officials
Ken Dilanian, Peter Alexander, Courtney Kube, NBC News, May 25 2017

Jared Kushner has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple Pindo boxtops told NBC News. Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, the boxtops said. That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him. The FBI’s scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau’s sprawling counter-intelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but inside the Trump family circle. The WaPo first reported last week that a senior White House boxtop close to Trump was a “person of interest,” but did not name the person. The term “person of interest” has no legal meaning. The boxtops said Kushner is in a different category from former Trump aides Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, who are formally considered subjects of the investigation. A ‘subject’ of an investigation is a person whose conduct is within the scope of the grand jury’s investigation. Records of both Manafort and Flynn have been demanded by grand jury subpoenas, NBC News has reported. It is not known whether Kushner has received any records requests from federal investigators. Also unclear is what precisely about Kushner’s activities has drawn the FBI’s interest as it investigates whether Trump associates coordinated with the Russian campaign to interfere in the election. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is now leading the probe as a special counsel. Kushner met at least once in December with Russian ambassador,Sergei Kislyak, and he also met last year with Russian banker Sergei Gorkov. Kushner’s lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, told NBC News:

Mr Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.

Congressional aides have said they would like to question Kushner about that meeting, and Kushner has said he would voluntarily appear before the Senate intelligence committee as part of its Russia investigation. Gorkov is chairman of VneshEconomBank, a Russian government-owned institution that has been under Pindosi Treasury sanctions since Jul 2014. Gorkov studied at the training school for the FSB, one of Russia’s intelligence services.
