Mueller’s Staff May be Leaking to the Washington Post, DOJ Denies

The Department of Justice denies these reports and reminds everyone to exercise caution on these stories with unnamed sources.

Those hardest hit by this release are the Washington Post and the New York Times, who have been using unnamed sources to absurd levels in their reporting to date.

Mueller has recently hired on staff with connections to the Democrat party. Even worse, some are connected to the Clinton Foundation.

This has angered Newt Gingrich and a host of other people, who now believe that Mueller is intending to turn the investigation of the “Russia” connections into a witchhunt aimed at destroying the Trump presidency and reversing the last election.

Now leaks are apparently coming from the Mueller team as The Washington Post claims that Mueller is investigating the finances and business dealings of Trump associates, including Jared Kushner, as he expands his investigation further and further beyond the initial scope of the assignment.

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is investigating the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, as part of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

FBI agents and federal prosecutors have also been examining the financial dealings of other Trump associates, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Carter Page, who was listed as a foreign-policy adviser for the campaign.

The Washington Post previously reported that investigators were scrutinizing meetings that Kushner held with Russians in December — first with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and then with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a state-owned Russian development bank. At the time of that report, it was not clear that the FBI was investigating Kushner’s business dealings.

The officials who described the financial focus of the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

At the December meeting with Kislyak, Kushner suggested establishing a secure communications line between Trump officials and the Kremlin at a Russian diplomatic facility, according to U.S. officials who reviewed intelligence reports describing Kislyak’s account.
