Jared Kushner's business dealings being investigated, Washington Post reports

Kushner is expected to be the latest high-profile member of Trump's administration to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, though no date has been selected yet.

A spokesman for the office of the special counsel declined to comment, and so did a representative for the director of National Intelligence. Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters.

Mueller's inquiry includes Kushner among other Trump's associates - former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and a campaign policy adviser Carter Page, The Washington Post claimed citing unnamed sources on Thursday.

Kushner is also close to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn who was sacked by Trump in February after he misled Vice President Mike Pence about the contents and nature of his communications with Kislyak.

At the December meeting with [Russian Ambassador Sergey] Kislyak, Kushner suggested establishing a secure communications line between Trump officials and the Kremlin at a Russian diplomatic facility, according to USA officials who reviewed intelligence reports describing Kislyak's account.

Vnesheconombank says that Gorkov's meeting with Kushner was to discuss real estate business, of which the president's son-in-law was the head. Gorkov was trained by Russia's Federal Security Service, or FSB.

Reports last month said Kushner had come under scrutiny in the FBI's investigation and that the bureau was specifically looking into his interactions with a Russian businessman and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Baker's views didn't change, even as Comey told Trump a second and third time that he was not being investigated.

Mueller is seeking to interview Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers, according to the people, who asked for anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

"That is a great, great team of complete professionals, so let's let him do his job", former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, told ABC News. "Nice", the president tweeted just before 4 a.m. Trump also fired James Comey, former FBI Director, in May.

Kushner and other Trump business associates are being looked at in the investigation, according to a new report.

Attorney Jay Sekulow is stressing that "the president has not been and is not under investigation".

Trump spoke to Coats and Rogers about the Russian Federation investigation, according to officials.
