What the Mueller report says about Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page report contains plenty of new details about President Donald Trump's actions before and after the 2016 election but it also puts a spotlight on the family members he's leaned heavily on during the campaign and his presidency.

Notably, the report contains revelations about a 2016 meeting between President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, incoming national security advisor Michael Flynn and a Russian envoy. It also provides details about how Ivanka Trump and other members of the president's inner circle reacted after learning about eldest son Donald Trump Jr.'s emails setting up the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians; and it confirms correspondence between Donald Jr. and WikiLeaks about hacked Clinton campaign e-mails.

Jared Kushner

Among Kushner's many appearances in the report is his and Flynn's meeting with Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak at Trump Tower in New York after the 2016 election. The New York Times and others reported that the meeting that November was about improving relations between the two countries, and they discussed establishing a secure line of communication with Russia.

Mueller's report confirms those details and adds that the three also discussed U.S. policy toward Syria.
At the 30-minute meeting, which Kislyak requested, Kushner "expressed a desire on the part of the incoming Administration to start afresh with U.S.-Russian relations," the report said.

Kushner "asked Kislyak to identify the best person (whether Kislyak or someone else) with whom to direct future discussions someone who had contact with Putin and the ability to speak for him," the report said.

The three men "also discussed U.S. policy toward Syria, and Kislyak floated the idea of having Russian generals brief the Transition Team on the topic using a secure communications line," the report said.

When Flynn replied that there was no secure line in the transition team offices, "Kushner asked Kislyak if they could communicate using secure facilities at the Russian Embassy. Kislyak quickly rejected that idea."

1. How is Kushner not being called out for treason?

Ok, I know we are not at war, yet.
What is the word for conspiring with an enemy nation when you are not at war?

2. I thought Mueller considered it cyber warfare.
