#AceNewsReport – May.27: Investigators are focusing on a series of meetings held by Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and an influential White House adviser, as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and related matters, according to people familiar with the investigation #AceNewsDesk
Kushner now a focus in FBI’s Russia investigation Published on May 25, 2017 at 12:52PM by Matt Zapotosky, Sari Horwitz, Devlin Barrett and Adam Entous, The Washington Post
FBI agents also remain keenly interested in former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, but Kushner is the only current White House official known to be considered a key person in the probe. In addition to possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election, investigators are also looking broadly into possible financial crimes – but the people familiar with the matter, who were not authorized to speak publicly, did not specify who or what was being examined.
Contacts between people on the transition team and foreign governments can be routine, but the meetings and phone calls with the Russians were not made public at the time. In addition to the December meetings, a former senior intelligence official said FBI agents had been looking closely at earlier exchanges between Trump associates and the Russians dating back to the spring of 2016, including one at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington. Flynn’s company, the Flynn Intel Group, was paid more than $500,000 by a company owned by a Turkish American businessman close to top Turkish officials for research on Fethullah Gulen, a cleric who Turkey’s current president believes was responsible for a coup attempt last summer. http://ift.tt/2rVVcit #AceNewsDesk
