On February 28, The New York Times published a report that Kushner's family real estate company had secured millions of dollars in business loans from Citigroup and Apollo Global Management after Kushner, a senior adviser to the president of the United States, met with the leaders of both companies at the White House. The special counsel is looking at Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election and whether there was any collusion with the Trump campaign.
Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for Kushner's attorney, responded to MSNBC with a statement accusing unnamed sources of misleading the media about Mueller's investigation.
But Kushner's talks with foreign officials as the company continued searching for financial backing have raised questions.
Federal investigators have reached out to Turkish nationals for information on Kushner through the Federal Bureau of Investigation's legal attache office in Ankara, NBC News said.
Some reports on other hand also said that President Trump has told Kushner and his daughter Ivanka that they should remain in their roles.
Kushner's family business, Kushner Companies, approached Qatar several times, including last spring, about investing in its troubled flagship property at 666 Fifth Avenue in NY, but Qatar's sovereign wealth fund declined, NBC News said, citing two sources familiar with the discussions. "Kushner's company has struggled to refinance its flagship property at 666 - I'm not making that up - 666 Fifth Ave in Manhattan for $1.4 billion in a year from now", Hayes explained.
The Trump administration subsequently backed an economically punishing blockade against Qatar, led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, citing the country's support for terrorism as the impetus, the report emphasized.
Recently, Donald Trump got frustrated with Kushner after his top security clearance was downgraded.
The report revealed that officials in Israel, the United Arab Emirates, China and Mexico discussed ways to utilize Kushner's business ties and foreign-policy naiveté to their advantage, though it is unclear if any of them acted on their discussions.
