A seething President Donald Trump is placing blame for the current state of the widening Russian Federation investigation on his son-in-law Jared Kushner, according to a report Wednesday.

Someone briefed on Trump's calls this week with Bannon said that Trump specifically blamed Jared for recommending that he fire former national security advisor Mike Flynn and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, Sherman reported. Sources close to the White House say they don't believe Kushner is a target of the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election and whether Donald Trump's campaign team colluded with Moscow.

"Here's what Manafort's indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization", said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg.

CNN correspondent Pamela Brown also told Tapper that "some sources" said that Kushner "was a driver in the decision, that he was encouraging the decision" to fire Comey. Bannon for the first eight months of Trump's presidency was his top strategic adviser and reportedly clashed frequently with Kushner.

Trump's decision to ax Comey in May led directly to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who indicted three Trump associates on Monday, according to Daily Mail. While Kushner and those close to the White House will only say he was in favor of the decision - or, in the words of one attorney, "did not oppose it" - there are multiple sources who say that Kushner was a driver of the decision and expected it would be a political boon for the President.

Meanwhile, Jared himself remains a focus of Mueller's Russia investigation and was questioned by Congress about his contacts with Russian officials during the presidential campaign.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", Nunberg said.

According to Vanity Fair writer Gabriel Sherman, those indictments announced loud and clear that the Russian Federation investigation poses an existential threat to Trump's presidency. The former advisor added, " I would say [Kushner] should go back to real estate in NY.

Earlier this week Mr. Mueller's probe was the center of attention when it charged Mr. Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates - with conspiracy and money laundering.
