FBI probing Trump’s aide
WASHINGTON: The activities of President Donald Trump’s sonin-law and senior aide Jared Kushner have come under Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutiny as part of the probe of Russian interference in last year’s election, United States media reported on Thursday.
He is under investigation for the “extent and nature” of his interaction with Russian officials, The Washington Post reported.
Kushner held meetings with the Russian ambassador to the US and a banker from Moscow in December, the Post said.
The banker, Sergei Gorkov, is chairman of VneshEconomBank, a state bank under US sanctions since July 2014.
Kushner failed to declare the meetings on forms to obtain a security clearance, but his lawyer later said it was a mistake and that he would amend them.
