WASHINGTON D.C. — Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team are investigating President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and any contacts he had with Israeli officials in December 2016.

Specifically, Mueller is looking into Kushner's potential involvement in a controversy connected to a December 2016 U.N. resolution that condemned settlement construction by Israelis, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.

President-elect Trump then called for the U.S. to veto the resolution, calling it "extremely unfair" to Israelis.

Mueller reportedly wants to know about overtures made by Israeli officials to a number of top people in Trump's transition team, including Kushner and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Mueller's team also is probing Kushner's role in setting up communications with foreign leaders during the transition period, the Journal said.

These new lines of inquiry are in addition to Mueller's investigation of Kushner's role in Trump's decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, his meetings with Russian nationals, and his business dealings and finances.

Kushner attended two meetings with Russians in the weeks before Trump took office. One was with Sergey Gorkov, the chairman of a Russian state-owned bank, and the other was with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Kushner also attended a June 2016 meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort at Trump Tower in New York City with a Russian lawyer who promised to provide damaging information on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Kushner has denied any wrongdoing.
