Seething Trump blames son-in-law Jared Kushner for Mueller's widening probe, report says

Bannon, back at his old role as the head of conservative news site Breitbart, has reportedly advised the president to shake up his legal team and do all he can to pressure Congress to defund Mueller's investigation, sources told Vanity Fair.

As the Russian Federation probe intensifies, it has been reported that senior White House adviser and President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has turned over documents in recent weeks to special counsel Robert Mueller.

Then in a conversation with longtime adviser Roger Stone, Trump agreed with Stone's assessment that Kushner was providing the president with bad political advice, someone familiar with the conversation told Vanity Fair.

"We are deeply troubled by the news reports that Bannon, with the evident support of his cohort at Brietbart News, is urging the president to take action against Robert Mueller", the three attorneys write.

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

Kushner voluntarily turned over documents he had from the campaign and the transition, and these related to any contacts with Russian Federation.

Former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates surrendered to the Federal Bureau of Investigation this week over charges stemming from an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into alleged Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

CNN correspondent Pamela Brown also told Tapper that "some sources" said that Kushner "was a driver in the decision, that he was encouraging the decision" to fire Comey.

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

The White House didn't respond to Vanity Fair's request for comment. "His options are limited, and his instinct is to come out swinging, which won't help things", said a prominent Republican close to the White House.

Trump made the purported remarks during a phone call with former White House Chief Strategist, and alleged Kushner adversary, Steve Bannon.

According to reports, Mr. Muller's investigators have begun interviewing witnesses about Mr. Kushner's role in last May's firing of FBI Director James Comey, which rocked Washington.

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.
