Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump ‘review every 6 months’ whether to return to private sector: report
Jared Kushner has told friends he and Ivanka Trump do not have permanent plans to remain in Washington, saying they would review whether they want to stay in D.C. every six months, according to The New York Times on Saturday.
However, sources close to the president’s son-in-law tell the Times that Kushner has no plans to step down from his role as a senior White House adviser.
Kushner and Ivanka Trump returned to Washington from President Trump’s first foreign trip Saturday amid a series of bombshell reports on the ongoing federal investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling.
Trump’s son-in-law is currently under scrutiny by the ongoing federal investigation, however this does not mean he is necessarily suspected of a crime.
The Washington Post reported Friday that Kushner expressed a desire to set up a line of private communication between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin when he spoke to Russia ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak in December.
White House officials are not commenting on the record on the Post’s reporting on Kushner.
CNN indicated Kushner “was not going anywhere.” He would continue to “focus on his work” and is “eager to cooperate with inquiries,” according to reporter Jim Acosta.
Kushner not going anywhere, I’m told. He’s keeping his head down to focus on work and is eager to cooperate with inquiries, source says.
