Report: Jared Kushner proposed secret communication channel with Kremlin

Jared Kushner is “under FBI scrutiny” into alleged Trump-Russia ties, and as part of this investigation, the Washington Post has learned that Kushner reportedly discussed setting up a backchannel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin during his meeting in December with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

According to intelligence officials, during a meeting at Trump Tower that included Michael Flynn, Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities for a secret and secure channel with the Kremlin that would shield discussions between the two sides from U.S. monitoring.
