Ivanka Trump's dilemma: Trump reportedly blames Jared Kushner for the Mueller probe

Ivanka Trump's dilemma: Trump reportedly blames Jared Kushner for the Mueller probe”

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 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.

The report, citing sources "briefed on Trump's thinking", said Trump confided in Stephen Bannon, that he no longer trusts Kushner.

During the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, Kushner helped develop and run Trump's digital media strategy. Kushner voluntarily turned over the documents, which were similar to the ones he provided congressional investigators earlier this year, CNN reported.

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.

However, it was not clear how Kushner's advice to the President might relate to the overall Russian Federation investigation or potential obstruction of justice, the sources said.

On Monday and Tuesday, Trump took phone calls with his former White House strategist Steve Bannon, who is now back to running the hard-line conservative news site Breitbart.

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

A lawyer for Kushner declined to comment on CNN's report, Perez told Tapper.

After Mr. Mueller's special counsel team announced the Manafort and Gates indictments, they unsealed a guilty plea by former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos for making a false statement to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about Russian contacts.

When longtime Trump ally Roger Stone recently told the president that Jared had been giving him bad political advice, the president agreed, someone familiar with the conversation told Sherman.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign operative, told Vanity Fair.

A 12-count indictment handed down Monday also includes a number of counts against Manafort's former business partner and protégé Rick Gates, who was ousted from the pro-Trump group America First Policies in April. The former advisor added, " I would say [Kushner] should go back to real estate in NY.
