The Wall Street Journal reports that Mueller's team is probing Kushner's involvement in the controversy surrounding a United Nations resolution passed in December 2016 that condemned Israeli settlement construction.

Kushner dismissed the meeting, but the possibility of creating a diplomatic backchannel between Trump and Moscow in order to evade detection by the US intelligence apparatus-as reported by The Washington Post-only brings extra scrutiny to the omissions on his clearance forms.
