REPORT: Trump Overrode Legal Team’s Advice That Kushner Should Step Down Over Russian Probe

The New York Daily News reports:

Members of President Trump’s legal team recommended in June that Jared Kushner step down as a senior White House adviser because of his implication in the Russian probe — but Kushner’s doting father-in-law disagreed, according to a report. The President believed that Kushner, his trusted confidant and husband to his daughter Ivanka Trump, had done nothing wrong despite having at least four known meetings with Russian officials during his White House bid and transition, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday. Trump contended there was no need for Kushner to resign, according to the report.
