President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, sources told NBC News. The officials said that they believe that Kushner has significant information pertinent to their inquiry.
It's important to note, however, that it doesn't necessarily mean that the FBI suspects him of wrongdoing or any criminal activity.
NBC's report comes after the Washington Post reported that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person of interest," but didn't identify the person.
"Person of interest" has no legal bearing. Officials said that Trump's son-in-law is categorized differently than former Trump aides such as Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, who are formally considered subjects of the investigation. They have both been issued subpoenas.
It remains unclear why Kushner, or his activities, would draw the FBI's interest.
Two weeks ago, former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed to lead the Russia probe as a special counsel.
