Prominent criminal lawyers have been contacted to possibly represent Jared Kushner in the federal investigation into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen U. S. election, The NY Times reports.

Representatives for President Trump'south son-in-law have reached out to these attorneys because Kushner'south allies have been questioning the connection between Kushner'south current lawyer and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the report said.

Jamie Gorelick, Kushner'south current lawyer, works at WilmerHale -- the same firm Mueller worked at before Deputy Attorney Common Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel.

Mueller is investigating Kushner'south finances and business dealings in relation to the Russia probe, The WA Post reported Friday. CBS News confirmed late latest mo that Kushner is below scrutiny in the probe into Russian election meddling. The special counsel'south office didn't reply to a request for comment on the report.

Gorelick, the report said, has urged Kushner to consider other representation, which could either supplement or replace Gorelick'south team, the report added.

"After the appointment of our former partner Robert Mueller as special counsel, we advised Mr. Kushner to get the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us as his counsel," Gorelick said in a statement Sunday, according to the report.

Attorney Abbe Lowell is among the attorneys contacted on Kushner'south behalf, the report said. She's representing Sen. Robert Menendez, D-New Jersey, in a case involving federal corruption charges and she's represented the powerful GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff, the Times noted.
