Mueller's investigators have expressed interest in Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and a White House senior adviser, as part of its probe into Russian meddling, including potential obstruction of justice in Comey's firing, sources familiar with the matter said.
The Russia investigation is such a party matter, and this means that any former government official who participated in deliberations or a decision about the Russia investigation-for example the White House decision to fire FBI Director James Comey because of the Russia investigation-may not represent back to the government on behalf of anyone else with intent to influence a government decision about the Russia investigation.
But sources close to the investigation say Kushner is not yet a target of the investigation.
