Looks like Washington ‘s golden child is now under investigation. According to reports, special appointed counsel Robert Mueller is now investigating Kushner for his “extensive ties” to Russia which include business ties and other related activities.
The news comes hours after Trump himself tweeted that he was “under investigation” for allegedly firing James Comey, the former director of the FBI. Although, er, that is only actually a tid-bit of why Trump is now under investigation. Donald Trump is actually under investigation for alleged and widely purported obstruction of justice charges, which, could potentially lead to impeachment proceedings beginning later this summer.
Mueller hasn’t quite discovered any findings of obstruction on behalf of Trump as of this point, although, as of this morning the investigation has deeply widened. The news actually came from the biggest anti-trump newspaper of them all, The Washington Post, whom has been quite accurate in their reporting as of late.
Kushner’s attorney Jamie Gorelick was confused as to what The Washington Post was actually referencing.
“It would be standard practice for the special counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to Russia,” she said in a statement, per CNN. “Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.”
