Ivanka Trump's dilemma: Trump reportedly blames Jared Kushner for the Mueller probe

Ivanka Trump's dilemma: Trump reportedly blames Jared Kushner for the Mueller probe

An op-ed in Politico Friday by former White House ethics attorneys Richard Painter, Norman Eisen, and Virginia Canter warns that Trump's contacts with Bannon, if they touched on Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation, could violate the law.

CNN reported that Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, turned over the documents to Mueller "in recent weeks".

Coal industry advocate tapped for mining regulator Bipartisan groups call on DOJ to scrutinize AT&T-Time Warner merger MORE rejected an idea from campaign aide George Papadopolous to set up a meeting with Russian officials during the campaign. You can't go any lower.

In private moments, Mr. Trump, who is prone to venting, blows off steam about the investigation but then moves on, according to one of the advisers.

Kushner, who is Ivanka Trump's husband, testified for two days behind closed doors to the House and Senate Intelligence committees' Russian Federation probes.

Prior to Bannon's departure from the White House, there also were reports that Ivanka had been urging her father to fire Bannon for months, while Jared and Bannon feuded for control over the president's attention and policy direction. Those actions led to Mueller's appointment as special counsel.

While Kushner is not the focus of Mueller's probe, "investigators now have begun asking questions about Kushner's role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey", Perez said.

When Roger Stone recently told Trump that Kushner was giving him bad political advice, Trump agreed, according to someone familiar with the conversation.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Sam Nunberg, an associate of Stone who was a Trump campaign operative, told Vanity Fair. "I'm only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress".

"If Trump pardons Jared, Trump won't be the 2020 nominee", he said in an email. This investigation will dig deep into the Russian interference in the last United States presidential elections, including the alleged scheming by the President's associates.

The questions surrounding the investigation may also pursue the President on his most critical official trip thus far, as he gets ready to go to Asia. They believe that Mueller's history with the federal investigation body will make it very hard for him to undertake a fair investigation of its involvement in this political drama with Russian Federation.
