Son-in-law to the president and a ever-present focus in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion, Jared Kushner, just revealed just how panicked he’s feeling in regards to the probe.
As the Trump administration’s revolving door keeps turning, with very few non Trump-related original team members remaining, more indictments could be in the future. Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor, has been indicted by Mueller already and has since struck a plea deal.
The Washington Post reports that Jared Kushner’s fear is showing. Kushner’s legal team is actively searching for a crisis management firm, an action that wouldn’t be taken unless Kushner were seriously worried about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. According to the post, Kushner’s legal team has contacted two firms privately, one of which turned them down.
Four different people confirmed that ,despite the fact that Kushner’s legal team requested the firms keep quiet about being contacted, the conversations between Kushner’s legal team and crisis management firms have taken place.
Kushner’s lawyer, Abe Lowell, was contacted by the Post, and explained:
‘My law firm and I are considering hiring an outside consultant to handle the time-consuming incoming inquiries on the cases in which I am working that receive media attention. This inquiry from you about whether I am doing this is a good example of why we need one.’
The scrutiny of Jared Kushner increased after it was revealed that he directed Michael Flynn, personally, to contact the Russian ambassador and encourage him to intercede on a U.S. resolution where Israel is concerned.

Below are some of the top reactions to Kushner’s desperate scramble to save himself from Twitter users:
Kushner, who became a member of the Trump family when he married the president’s daughter, has been the subject of intense scrutiny after outrage was expressed over his appointment to the position of White House senior advisor, despite the fact that he is completely unqualified. Unfortunately, Kushner’s lack of qualification is small potatoes compared to what might be revealed through the Russia probe.
