Special counsel Mueller investigating Jared Kushner's finances, Washington Post reports

"I look at this team and think this is a joke!" the lawyer said. The committee, which is investigating Russia's meddling in the presidential election and whether any of Trump's associates had ties with the country at the time, expects Kushner to provide documents and face questions from the senators.

However, the FBI has not confirmed that Trump's son-in-law was under the bureau's investigation at any point.

Tensions escalated with Mueller's latest moves. The firing of Comey may also be a part of the obstruction of justice allegation.

"After the appointment of our former partner Robert Mueller as special counsel, we advised Mr. Kushner to obtain the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us as his counsel", Gorelick said. Not only is Special Counsel Robert Mueller looking at obstruction of justice charges for Trump, he's also investigating Jared Kushner's finances, probably as a potential explanation for that secret backchannel to Putin he tried to establish.

Mueller is also investigating whether President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. But the bank said in a March statement that Gorkov met with Kushner in his capacity as a businessman.

Mueller wants to interview Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers, according to the people, who asked for anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Trump spoke to Coats and Rogers about the Russian Federation investigation, according to officials. We just don't know. "It will be a closed hearing", Adam Schiff of California, the panel's top Democrat, told reporters.

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump's outside attorney, Marc Kasowitz, slammed the Post's reporting.

US officials familiar with the investigation told The Washington Post about its financial focus Thursday. "The continued illegal leaks are the only crime here". His lawyers say he will cooperate with investigators.

Comey testified before a Senate panel last week that Trump spoke privately with him several times, including by telephone and at White House meetings. Kushner has denied any improper contacts with Russian Federation. Mueller left his position at the firm to lead the investigation. The president has denied that he told Comey to drop the Flynn investigation.

The White House confirmed on Thursday that Mueller was interviewed - presumably about again running the Federal Bureau of Investigation - the day before he was named as special counsel to investigate Russian meddling in last year's presidential election. Jeannie Rhee, one of those attorneys, represented Hillary Clinton during her email scandal. He cited the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has recused himself from the Russian Federation inquiry, and his deputy Rosenstein. "And so that was his view throughout", Comey said.
