Federal and congressional investigators are examining why Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, met with Sergey N. Gorkov, a Russian banker who is close to Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to The New York Times.
Reuters reported last week, citing a current US law enforcement official, that the FBI is examining whether Gorkov suggested to Kushner that Russian banks could finance Trump associates' business ventures if US sanctions were lifted or relaxed.
