Special counsel Mueller investigating Jared Kushner’s finances: Special counsel Robert Mueller is scrutinizing White House adviser Jared Kushner’s “finances and business dealings” as part of the ongoing probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, The Washington Post reported Thursday, citing unnamed officials familiar with the matter.

The financial dealings of other people tied to President Trump have also been examined by the FBI and federal prosecutors, the Post reported. Among them are former national security adviser Michael Flynn, Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and former adviser Carter Page.

The lawyer for Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and close adviser, said there was nothing surprising about the Post’s report.

“We do not know what this report refers to,” attorney Jamie Gorelick said in a statement. “It would be standard practice for the Special Counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to Russia.  Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters.  He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.”
