Trump is trying to pretend like the Russia investigation doesn’t exist, but it was reported that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Jared Kushner’s contacts with foreign leaders.
The Wall Street Journal reported, “Robert Mueller’s investigators are asking questions about Jared Kushner’s interactions with foreign leaders during the presidential transition, including his involvement in a dispute at the United Nations in December, in a sign of the expansive nature of the special counsel’s probe of Russia’s meddling in the election, according to people familiar with the matter.”
Jared Kushner is not only Trump’s son in law but most of the key pieces of the Russia investigation trace back to him. Kushner has consistently lied about meetings and contacts with Russians. Kushner was a central figure in the campaign and has been Trump’s right-hand man in the White House. Kushner was present at Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russians. Kushner was involved in email chains about Trump meeting with Putin during the campaign.
Trump’s wall of plausible deniability has a big hole in it named Jared Kushner. The investigation isn’t going to get much closer to the president than his own son in law. Kushner tells Trump everything, so it impossible to believe that he withheld information about collusion with Russia from the president.
Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is a whole lot bigger than Russia and the 2016 election. The Special Counsel is taking on Trump, his family, the 2016 campaign, and his financial dealings. Mueller is treating this like an organized crime investigation, and he has his focus on the boss’s right-hand man.
