It appears the first indictments have started taking a toll on the White House - and, in turn, the Trump family - as Vanity Fair reports the president is placing the blame on Kushner for making some decisions, such as firing former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, which eventually led to the Russian probe.

Mr Kushner voluntarily turned over documents he had from the campaign and the transition and those related to any contacts with Russian Federation, according to a source familiar with the matter.

CNN broke the news late Thursday that there are still ongoing questions about Kushner's role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey. White House sources, however, have indicated that Mr Kushner is not a target of the investigation.

In addition to inquiring about the Comey firing, Mr. Mueller is also reportedly interested in Mr. Kushner's role in crafting a statement about a July 2016 meeting in Trump Tower that he, Donald Trump Jr., and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort attended with a Russian lawyer.

Other "points of focus" on Kushner include his involvement on Trump's campaign data analytics operation, and his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn, sources told CNN.

CNN said Kushner gave the documents at his own free will.

National Party found guilty of Eminem copyright breach
National Party President Peter Goodfellow claimed in the declaration he was dissatisfied with the ruling. Earlier this year, Eminem's lawsuit against New Zealand's National Party went to trial.


Manafort, 68, and business partner Rick Gates, 45, both entered not guilty pleas in a Washington court after being read charges that they hid millions of dollars they earned working for former Ukrainian politician Viktor Yanukovych and his pro-Moscow political party.

CNN's report came one day after Vanity Fair reported that Trump was becoming frustrated with Kushner.

President Donald Trump believes his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, is giving him bad advice, according to a Vanity Fair report.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Nunberg said.

However, it was not clear how Kushner's advice to the President might relate to the overall Russian Federation investigation or potential obstruction of justice, the sources said. "I'm only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress".

Manafort laundered over $18 million, according to the indictment.
