From Vanity Fair:
Steve Bannon may have been prophetic when he told Michael Wolff that Robert Mueller’s “path to fucking Trump” would run right through Jared Kushner. As CNN reported Monday, the special counsel’s interest in Kushner has now expanded beyond his many contacts with Russian officials to include his family’s real-estate empire. The implication, as Bannon predicted, is that Mueller is seeking dirt that could explain any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia — and provide leverage to get Kushner to flip on other members of the Trump family.
F.B.I. investigators are particularly interested in Kushner’s efforts to secure financing for 666 Fifth Avenue, the Midtown skyscraper that Kushner purchased over a decade ago for nearly $1.8 billion in debt, and which has become a massive albatross for the family. During the transition, Kushner reportedly held conversations with investors including Chinese insurance giant Anbang, but the deal stalled in March. Mueller’s team is also said to be interested in conversations Kushner and his father held with Qatari investor and former prime minister Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani in 2015 and 2016, which also collapsed.
