Jared Kushner Turns Over Documents to Special Counsel Robert Mueller

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.

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.

Mueller's investigators have expressed interest in Kushner as part of its probe into Russian meddling, including potential obstruction of justice in Comey's firing, informed sources told CNN on Thursday.

Donald Trump has been reported to be angry with Jared Kushner as the probe into alleged interference during the US Presidential election continues to hang over his administration.

Meanwhile, George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about a meeting he had with a Russian professor who claimed he could give him "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.

Other "points of focus" on Kushner include his involvement on Trump's campaign data analytics operation, and his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn, sources told CNN.

During the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, Kushner helped develop and run Trump's digital media strategy.

CNN said Kushner gave the documents at his own free will.

Those decisions led to Mueller taking over the investigation after being appointed as special counsel.

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.

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.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Nunberg said.

CNN's report came one day after Vanity Fair reported that Trump was becoming frustrated with Kushner. The former advisor added, " I would say [Kushner] should go back to real estate in NY.

Manafort laundered over $18 million, according to the indictment.
