Mueller Team Probes Jared Kushner's Foreign Business Ties

Patty Aguilar | 04 March, 2018, 23:14

Federal investigators are looking into whether Jared Kushner's business talks with foreigners, as his father-in-law Donald Trump assumed the USA presidency, later influenced White House policy, NBC News reported on Friday.

"Trump has been asking people close to him whether they think Kushner or his company has done anything wrong, according to a senior administration official".

"Mr. Kushner's role in the campaign and transition was to be a point person for completely appropriate contacts from foreign officials and he did not mix his or his former company's business in those contacts and any claim otherwise is false", the spokesman said.

In a report released tonight by the Washington Post, several White House staffers lamented Trump's emotional state amid the constant controversies of 2018 and his "obsession with cable commentary".

But a recent report in the New York Times questioned possible links between meetings Kushner held in the White House and loans worth hundreds of millions of dollars subsequently granted to his family's business.

The Kushner Companies' Fifth Avenue property is facing some $1.4 billion in debt that is due in 2019, NBC News cited the sources as saying.

Mueller's office declined to comment to NBC News for its story.

Qatar's ambassador to the U.S. has denied it has been contacted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections.

Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for Kushner's attorney, responded to MSNBC with a statement accusing unnamed sources of misleading the media about Mueller's investigation. Trump has repeatedly denied there was any collusion.

The Saudi-led group then imposed a punishing blockade on the country.

But he also said he thought that after a rough start, the Kushners had gradually "found a place" in the White House that "fits in nicely with their portfolio". Kushner has been active in the Trump administration's Middle East diplomacy efforts.

Another report this week stated that officials in at least four countries have discussed ways to manipulate Kushner through his complex foreign business interests, financial difficulties and inexperience in government.
