Reuters characterized the meeting with Gorkov as involving a number of representatives from US banks and businesses, including Kushner, who runs a real estate company.

Mr Trump fired Mr Comey last month, which the ex-FBI director suggested on Thursday may have been because of the way he was conducting the Russian Federation investigation.
