Special counsel Robert Mueller is circling his investigation around Jared Kushner’s interaction with foreign leaders. Mueller’s team is now looking into whether Kushner played a role in efforts to halt a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank that was approved Dec. 23, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Previous efforts to pass a similar resolution were vetoed in the past by the United States. However, the Obama administration chose not to veto the resolution in December, according to The Times of Israel.
Kushner reportedly had interactions with top Israeli officials who reached out to him and other members of President Donald Trump’s transition team, including Steve Bannon, in an effort to prevent the resolution’s passing, according to The Wall Street Journal. These interactions have reportedly been the focus of Mueller’s most recent investigation into Kushner.
