Business Insider reports:
Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey said that White House senior adviser and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner “deserves the scrutiny” he’s getting from the ongoing Russia probe that has so far ensnared three former Trump aides.
“I’m telling you that he deserves the scrutiny, you know why? Because he was involved in the transition and involved in meetings that call into question his role,” Christie said to MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace. “And the facts will determine that ultimately.”
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election and its possible ties with the Trump campaign has reportedly set its sights into Kushner’s role during the campaign and Trump’s transition to the White House.
