The Justice Department has released addition Mueller documents. Part of the documents related to Kushner.
From CNN: The Justice Department released, for the first time, notes from Mueller's team of their interview with Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. But the five-page document is almost completely redacted, revealing nothing more about Kushner's role in the Russia scandal.
There are a few snippets of text visible in the memo.
"A few weeks after the election [REDACTED] Kushner, Flynn and Kislyak met together at Trump Tower," an apparent reference to the December 2016 meeting between senior Trump aides and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The rest of that section is fully redacted, even though several pages of the Mueller report delve into the details of the meeting.
Another snippet says, "Kushner [REDACTED] vaguely remembers Flynn handling Russia on the issue." The rest of the section is redacted, but it could refer to the efforts within the Trump transition team to reach out to diplomats from around the world, as they moved on from their unexpected election victory and prepared to take the reins of government in 2017.
Nothing else is revealed in the memo, which describes the interview Kushner did with Mueller's team in November 2017. At the time, CNN reported that investigators primarily asked about former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to a lying charge weeks later. This was one of two voluntary interviews that Kushner, who now serves as a senior White House adviser, did with Mueller.
