Cohen was one of Trump's most trusted confidantes but the pair's relationship deteriorated in 2017. It came after federal prosecutors investigated Cohen over hush-money payments to women who said they had affairs with Trump, and for lying to Congress about Trump's business dealings in Russia.Cohen subsequently pleaded guilty to multiple federal crimes including lying to Congress, tax evasion, and bank fraud. After his sentence he became one of Trump's most vocal critics and he is currently serving his sentence under house arrest.
Cohen has cooperated with prosecutors and provided evidence against his former boss since at least 2019, CNBC previously reported, in a bid to make his sentence more lenient.Representatives for Kushner did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.On July 1, the Manhattan district attorney's office issued a 15-count indictment against the Trump Organization and Allen Weisselberg, its chief financial officer, including charges of grand larceny and tax fraud. Prosecutors described a years-long scheme by executives at the company to avoid taxes.
The indictment against Weisselberg twice listed an unnamed co-conspirator, leading to speculation that one of Trump's immediate family members could be the next to face charges.Weisselberg, one of Trump's most trusted staffers, had told prosecutors that he would not flip on his boss, The Washington Post reported in June.
Commentators have since speculated that the prospect of criminal charges and prison time could tempt members of Trump's family to turn on him.
Cohen alleged in June that Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, had been involved in creating false documentary evidence on Donald Trump's behalf. No evidence of that has emerged.Mary Trump, the former president's estranged niece, has speculated that Ivanka could be persuaded to provide evidence against her father.
