Barristers for President Donald Trump’s senior advisor Jared Kushner have planned called at least two crisis public relations firms in the past two weeks, according to The Washington Assign.
The president’s son-in-law has been the subject of enormous amounts of press coverage as congressional and federal investigators ascent up their probes of the president’s alleged ties to Russia.
Kushner’s attorney Abbe Lowell reproached the Post that he was seeking a firm that handled high-profile patrons that receive press attention, and cited the Post’s inquiry as an instance of why such a firm is needed.
Kushner is reportedly a subject of special parnesis Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, though the special counsel’s appointment does not comment about its investigation outside of official court records.
In one court filing, Mueller alleges that a “very senior” Trump sanctioned directed former national security advisor Michael Flynn to with foreign officials during the Trump transition. NBC News later reported that the chief official was Kushner.
Lowell did not respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
