Is Jared Kushner next to be indicted in Russian Federation investigation?

Is Jared Kushner next to be indicted in Russian Federation investigation?”

Thanksgiving could be pretty tense at whatever Trump golf resort the first family chooses to celebrate the upcoming holiday.

A 36-year-old Harvard graduate, Kushner is the oldest son of real-estate developer Charles Kushner, and he is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka.

The US president is reported to be blaming his son-in-law for certain decisions that led to Robert Mueller being appointed to investigate claims of Russian collusion in the 2016 election campaign.

Paul Manafort - his former campaign manager - and his associate Rick Gates were charged with a series of federal offences, including conspiracy against the United States, earlier this week.

Mr Trump continued to dismiss the indictments as "fake news" after their release, and attempted to shift the focus to Hillary Clinton's dealings with Russian Federation. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released on Sunday put Mr. Trump's approval rating at 38 percent - the lowest for the survey since February, when he was a month into his presidency. "The walls are closing in", one senior Republican close to the White House told the "New York Post". And former very senior White House officials, such as Bannon, are subject to a two-year cooling off period, which bars them not only from making such communications on behalf of others back to White House staff, but also to other very senior people in the government, such as the attorney general-and also the president.

The firing of Comey directly resulted in Mueller's appointment.

Trump also told his longtime adviser Roger Stone that he agreed with Stone's assessment that Kushner was providing him bad political advice, someone familiar with the conversation told Vanity Fair.

Another campaign aide, Sam Nunberg, echoed Stone's sentiment.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Nunberg said. The former advisor added, " I would say [Kushner] should go back to real estate in NY.

Lawyers for Mr. Kushner, White House officials and a special counsel spokesman, all declined to comment on CNN's report.

"If Trump pardons Jared, Trump won't be the 2020 nominee", he said in an email.

However, it was not clear how Kushner's advice to the President might relate to the overall Russian Federation investigation or potential obstruction of justice, the sources said.
