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

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

According to the article, Trump blames Kushner for decisions that have led to a probe into connections between his campaign and Russia, among them the firing of his first national security adviser, Mike Flynn, for not revealing the extent of his ties with Russian officials; and the firing of James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who said he was investigating the ties.

President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump departing from Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv in May.

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. You can't go any lower.

According to a source familiar with the conversation, Trump agreed with Stone.

Throughout this Russian Federation probe, there have been several occasions when Trump's behavior has put him at a bigger risk; for instance, the firing of Comey and eventual appointment of Mueller.

Speaking to Steve Bannon on Tuesday, Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of Mike Flynn and James Comey, that led to Mueller's appointment, according to a source briefed on the call.

Iyer, Siraj included in India T20 squad
Ashish Nehra has been picked for the first match which will be played in Delhi's Ferozshah Kotla on November 1. The Indian squad will see the inclusion of two new players in their side - Shreyas Iyer and Mohammed Siraj .

Kushner was forced to resubmit security clearance forms several times because he repeatedly failed to disclose foreign contacts and he caused a flap by using a private email account to discuss some government business while working in the White House.

Roger Stone has allegedly added to Trump's paranoia, claiming that Kushner gave his father-in-law bad advice.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign operative, told Vanity Fair.

A lawyer for Kushner declined to comment on CNN's report, Perez told Tapper. The former advisor added, " I would say [Kushner] should go back to real estate in NY.

The FBI is looking into possible obstruction of justice in the termination of Comey, who led the Russian Federation probe before Mueller took over. They believe that Mueller's history with the federal investigation body will make it very hard for him to undertake a fair investigation of its involvement in this political drama with Russian Federation.
