According to press reports at the time, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was the main focus of the meeting.

In addition to Russian election meddling and foreign financing, Mueller is looking into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russian government.

During the presidential transition period Kushner spoke to foreign contacts from over 15 countries, according to a statement he provided to Congressional investigators. In particular, Mueller is interested in Kushner's attempts to finance his real estate company during the presidential transition.

Over the past two months, investigators have been probing Kushner's solicitation of financial support for 666 Fifth Ave., a debt-ridden Manhattan property that Kushner Companies purchased in 2007.

Before he joined the administration, Mr. Kushner divested from that property and others, which were sold to a family trust from which he does not benefit, CNN reported.

One line of questioning from Mueller's team involves discussions Kushner had with Chinese investors during the transition, according to the sources familiar with the inquiry.

Kushner and Anbang chairman Wu Xiaohui were close to finishing a deal for the Chinese conglomerate to invest in 666 Fifth Avenue.

After a blanked end in the first, Canada scored two in the second off of another takeout hammer throw by skip Rachel Homan. Since the inaugural Women's World Hockey Championships in 1990 every tournament has been won by either the usa or Canada.

Jared Kusnher is said to be resisting an internal push at the White House to clamp down on the flow of classified information among staffers who do not hold a full security clearance, The New York Times reported Tuesday night.

The investigation team is yet to contact Kushner Companies. The skyscraper racked up more than $1.4 billion in debt after the 2008 financial crisis, setting the family company scrambling for investors. Nor would there be any reason to question these regular business transactions, Lowell said in a statement to CNN.

A representative for Anbang declined to comment.

Kushner is also under scrutiny for a meeting he had had with Sergey Gorkov, chairman of the Russian state-run Vnesheconombank.

Kushner has said that the December 2016 meeting was held to discuss official government business. But the Russian bank maintains that the sit-down in NY was part of their "roadshow of business meetings" and that Gorkov met Kushner because he ran Kushner Companies. And The Washington Post newspaper has reported that Mr Mueller is investigating that meeting as well.

Kushner reportedly met with Mueller's team last November.
