You’d almost think he has something to hide!

U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has hired one of the top white-collar criminal defense lawyers in America to represent him during the probe into collusion with Russia during the 2016 election.

Kushner’s latest addition to his legal team, Abbe Lowell, has represented everyone from House Democrats during Bill Clinton’s impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal to corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff and other high-profile Washington figures.

Lowell’s previous clients have also been the subjects of international investigations, and he will represent Kushner in dealings with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe into links between Trump’s campaign staff and Russia.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Kushner’s finances are being investigated by Mueller’s team.

Kushner has also come under scrutiny for several meetings he had with Russian officials, including one in which he sought to set up back channel communications with Moscow through Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.
