The Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) initiated an inspection at the “Russian case” in relation to Jared Kushner, son-in-law and adviser to the President of the United States Donald trump. On Thursday, may 25, according to NBC News.
According to the information channel, Kushner possesses important information that is relevant to the investigation. It is noted that the investigators did not intend to accuse him of anything.
The authors of the article remind that last week the Washington Post reported that the current senior Advisor to the President became involved in the investigation conducted by special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, “possible collusion of the election headquarters trump with Russia.” The name of the EA in the material of the newspaper was not specified, but was noted that it was “significant defendant” of the investigation.
According to NBC News, in December 2016, Kouchner met with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak and the head of the Russian Vnesheconombank Sergey Gorkov.
May 18, former official of the U.S. justice Department and former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed special adviser to oversee the investigation “attempts of intervention of the government of Russia in the presidential elections of 2016”. Trump said that the investigation into Muller confirms the absence of “collusion” between his presidential campaign and a foreign power. He later called the appointment “a witch hunt”.
Moscow has repeatedly accused of meddling in the US presidential election. Such statements, in particular, contained in the published in January, declassified part of the report, which was prepared by the Central intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of investigation and the national security Agency of the United States. It said that Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to organize a campaign to discredit the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and win the Republican Donald trump. Russia denies all these charges.
