On June 15, US officials familiar with the DOJ probe disclosed that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Kushner's business dealings, The Washington Post reports.

Mueller and his team are also looking at the financial activities of Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and Carter Page, according to the Washington Post.

'We do not know what this report refers to, ' Jamie Gorelick said.

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the Russian Federation investigation and President Trump, has added 13 lawyers as part of a high-powered team to help with the wide-ranging probe. Gorelick pointed out that Kushner has volunteered to speak with the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is leading one of the congressional Russian Federation investigations. "He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry".

The media claimed on Wednesday that the special prosecutor has expanded the investigation to determine whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice.

The White House confirmed on Thursday that Mueller was interviewed - presumably about again running the Federal Bureau of Investigation - the day before he was named as special counsel to investigate Russian meddling in last year's presidential election.
