Mueller Investigating Kushner’s Contacts With Foreign Leaders

US special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators are looking into White House senior adviser and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and his contact with foreign leaders, according to a new report. The Wall Street Journal reports that Mueller’s team is probing Kushner’s involvement in the controversy surrounding a UN resolution passed in December 2016 that condemned Israeli settlement construction, The Hill reported. Trump, who was president-elect at the time, called for the US to veto the resolution, saying the resolution was “extremely unfair to all Israelis.” The UN Security Council passed the resolution days later as the US abstained from vetoing it. The Journal reports that Israeli officials reached out to several top officials involved in Trump’s transition, including Kushner and former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, and that Mueller’s probe is asking questions about those overtures. Mueller’s investigators are also looking into Kushner’s role in setting up meetings and communication with foreign leaders during Trump’s transition, according to the Journal.
