In Call With Times Reporter, Trump Projects Air of Calm Over Charges

As the Russian Federation probe intensifies, it has been reported that senior White House adviser and President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has turned over documents in recent weeks to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The 36-year-old voluntarily turned over documents from the campaign and from the transition, which were similar to ones he had given congressional investigators earlier this year.

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. The press has reported that when Bannon served in the White House he was involved in deliberations regarding the Comey firing and the Russian Federation investigation.

According to CNN, the questions about Kushner could mean that Mueller's investigation has reached into Trump's inner circle and has now gone beyond the 2016 campaign involvement.

Trump fired Comey in May, leading Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Mueller to oversee the Justice Department's investigation into Russian meddling in last year's election.

"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.

According to several news outlets, Trump spent Monday morning watching Manafort turn himself in on a television in the residence.

The report comes just days after former foreign policy adviser to Trump's presidential campaign George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Trump also told his longtime adviser Roger Stone that he agreed with Stone's assessment that Kushner was providing him bad political advice, someone familiar with the conversation told Vanity Fair.

It was learned Monday that Mueller had secured indictments against one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and campaign aide Rick Gates, as well a surprise guilty plea from former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos. "I'm only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress".
