Reports last week said Kushner, who is also Trump’s son-in-law, had come under scrutiny in the FBI’s Russia probe over his contacts with the Russian ambassador and a Russian banking executive.

Following those reports, Kushner faced renewed scrutiny after the The Washington Post on Friday said he sought to establish private communication with Russia.
