Jared Kushner Under Fresh FBI Scrutiny
Proximity to power has its perils. The senior White House aide is in the crosshairs of an FBI probe into his father-in-law’s 2016 campaign and possible collusion with Russia. Specifically, questions have arisen over meetings between Kushner and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, as well as the head of a Russian bank under U.S. sanctions. The meetings came around the time Kushner was scrambling for investors in his troubled 666 Fifth Avenue building. Kushner is not necessarily suspected of any crime, and his lawyers say he’ll cooperate with any inquiry.
