Trump Is Reportedly Blaming Son-In-Law Kushner For Mueller Probe

President Donald Trump believes his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, is giving him bad advice, according to a Vanity Fair report.

Noting that special counsel investigators are now reaching Mr. Trump's inner circle, CNN reported that sources familiar with the probe say Mr. Mueller is interested in possible obstruction of justice issues regarding the Comey's firing.

Bannon for the first eight months of Trump's presidency was his top strategic adviser and reportedly clashed frequently with Kushner.

With the Russian Federation investigation led by special counsel delivering indictments this week, Trump has blamed Kushner for such decisions as forcing Michael Flynn out of his job as White House national security adviser and firing James Comey as FBI director.

That's because the president reportedly is pretty mad at his son-in-law over his role in decisions that led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, according to a new report in Vanity Fair.

Mueller's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election - and whether Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow to influence the outcome - led to the indictments on Monday of Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Manafort's past business associate Rick Gates.

Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman wrote that Trump told former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon that he blamed Kushner "for his role in the decisions, specifically the firings of" Flynn and Comey.

Mr Mueller's investigators who are looking into the alleged Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 US Presidential elections have expressed an interest in Mr Kushner. You can't go any lower. Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg has also gone on the offensive against Kusher. And they have yet to learn the historical lesson from past presidential investigations, which is that it isn't the crime that gets them, it's the attempt to cover it up. "Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history".

It is possible that the Vanity Fair story was planted by Bannon or Stone, in order to deflect from their responsibility for the Russian Federation scandal, . Would Ivanka decide to give up her high-profile government job in solidarity with her husband? While Kushner and those close to the White House will only say he was in favor of the decision - or, in the words of one attorney, "did not oppose it" - there are multiple sources who say that Kushner was a driver of the decision and expected it would be a political boon for the President. An influential Republican donor told Vanity Fair: "When they decide it's more important to protect their own and their children's reputations than it is to defend their indefensible father's, that's a sign the end is near".
