A week after reporting a significant “person of interest” is the focus of the investigation of possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, the Washington Post revealed on Thursday that the person is Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser.

From the Post‘s article published Thursday afternoon as reported by Matt Zapotosky, Sari Horwitz, Devlin Barrett, and Adam Entous:

Investigators are focusing on a series of meetings held by Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and an influential White House adviser, as part of their probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and related matters, according to people familiar with the investigation.

Kushner, who held meetings in December with the Russian ambassador and a banker from Moscow , is being investigated because of the extent and nature of his interactions with the Russians, the people said.

The Post has not been told that Kushner is a target — or the central focus — of the investigation, and he has not been accused of any wrongdoing. Target is a word that generally refers to someone who is the main suspect of investigators’ attention, though prosecutors can and do bring charges against people who are not marked with that distinction.
