President Trump's adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner received and forwarded emails about WikiLeaks and a "Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite" that he kept from Senate Judiciary Committee investigators, according to panel leaders demanding that he produce the missing records.

Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) sent a letter to Kushner's lawyer Abbe Lowell on Thursday charging that Kushner has failed to disclose several documents, records and transcripts in response to multiple inquiries from committee investigators.

In the letter, Grassley and Feinstein instruct Kushner's team to turn over "several documents that are known to exist" because other witnesses in their probe already gave them to investigators. They include a series of "September 2016 email communications to Mr. Kushner concerning WikiLeaks," which the committee leaders say Kushner then forwarded to another campaign official. Earlier this week, Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. revealed that he had had direct communication with WikiLeaks over private Twitter messages during the campaign.

It looks as if Mr Mueller is tightening the net around Mr Kushner based upon evidence being provided by others.

Jared's going to be indicted.

Yeah. I think he will be indicted. I just don't think that Trump and his family have ever really understood that there are real ethical lines that cannot be crossed when going into public service. It is not like the private sector where almost anything goes.

Jared's dad went to prison. You'd think Jared would have more sense.

Jared learned not to get caught like his dad. He didn't learn to be ethical.

Mueller subpoenaed Russia docs from Trump campaign officials

...Special Counsel Bob Mueller subpoenaed Russian-related documents from more than a dozen top Trump campaign officials last month, per "a person familiar with the matter," the WSJ reports.

Why it matters: This is the first known request from Mueller for information from the campaign itself. The campaign has been voluntarily complying with the special counsel investigation and its requests for information, so this suggests Mueller's requests aren't being fully met. Failure to provide requested documents can count as obstructing a grand-jury investigation....
