    US media reported based on unnamed sources that President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, is now under investigation by the FBI as part of the Russia probe.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Kusher is supposedly under scrutiny by the FBI because of interactions with Russia contacts, The Washington Post claimed Thursday, citing "people familiar with the investigation."

    FBI agents, the report added, remain focused on Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort as part of the probe.

    Trump has refuted the reports of his campaign's connections with Russia and called the investigation into this matter a "witch hunt." He stressed that the FBI should conclude the probe as soon as possible, because the administration needs focus on other critical domestic issues. Russian officials have repeatedly denied having any ties with the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election.
