Donald Trump Is Blaming Jared Kushner For The Mueller Investigation

Journalists raise their hands as they wait to be called on to ask a question to President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Rose Garden of the White House 16 October 2017

A seething President Donald Trump is placing blame for the current state of the widening Russian Federation investigation on his son-in-law Jared Kushner, according to a report Wednesday.

CNN reported that Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, turned over the documents to Mueller "in recent weeks".

It appears the first indictments have started taking a toll on the White House - and, in turn, the Trump family - as Vanity Fair reports the president is placing the blame on Kushner for making some decisions, such as firing former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, which eventually led to the Russian probe.

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.

Additionally, Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of conspiracy and money laundering after the Justice Department unveiled the first indictments in the probe into Russian election interference.

A White House official told CNN that the Mueller team's questions about Kushner are not a surprise, and that the senior advisor would be among a list of people who investigators would be asking about.

Their questions about Kushner signal that Mueller's investigators are reaching the President's inner circle and have extended beyond the 2016 campaign to actions taken at the White House by high-level officials. "Trump is at 33 percent in Gallup".

Trump made the purported remarks during a phone call with former White House Chief Strategist, and alleged Kushner adversary, Steve Bannon. That's why they warned him the White House that he could be blackmailed.

Comey's firing ultimately led Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Mueller as the special counsel.

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. 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", Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign operative, told Vanity Fair.

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, .
