Reports on Jared Kushner being a focus of the investigation into FBI’s Russia probe has bothered the senior adviser to President Donald Trump and he, along with his wife Ivanka Trump, will evaluate whether to return to their private life in New York, according to the New York Times.

On Saturday, the Times noted Kushner and Ivanka left Trump’s maiden foreign trip early following reports that said the FBI diverted its attention at Kushner’s meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and a Russian banking executive last December. There were signs that Kushner was tired of the damage to his reputation due to the reports, the newspaper reported.

On May 26, the Washington Post reported the Russian envoy told his superiors in Moscow that Kushner discussed establishing a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin.

Kushner told his friends he and Ivanka did not make any long-term commitment to the Trump administration and they would review their stay at Washington, D.C., every six months, the Times reported. However, he does not plan on resigning from the senior adviser's post or reduce his duties, the newspaper added, citing sources close to him.

CNN's senior White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, in a tweet Sunday, said Kushner was not planning on going anywhere and was focusing only on his work.

In the Russia probe, the Senate Intelligence Committee was reportedly keen on interviewing Kushner. "Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry," Jamie Gorelick, Kushner's lawyer and a veteran of the Clinton-era Department of Justice, said in a statement, CBS News reported May 25.

Following the reports, Kushner’s attorney said the Trump aide would cooperate in the investigation.

Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has called for the suspension of Kushner’s security clearance. “The FBI’s Russia investigation reached Trump’s backyard, and now it’s in his house,” DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson reportedly said. “Kushner’s security clearance should be suspended until the FBI’s findings are complete,” she added.

Kushner and Ivanka moved to the capital from New York City earlier this year after Kushner was appointed a senior adviser in the Trump administration. One of the influential advisers in Trump’s team, Kushner has been tasked with several responsibilities including leading a task force to reform the federal government and looking into criminal justice reform.

Akin to her husband, Ivanka had her share of criticism during her time in the Trump administration. While promoting women’s rights, she supported her father’s attitude towards them. Trump came under scanner during the 2016 presidential campaign for his controversial comments on women.

After Trump was elected president, several retailers pulled out Ivanka’s eponymous clothing line from their shelves due to poor sales. However, according to a report last month, the clothing line was sold under different name “Adrienne Vittadini Studio” at retailer Stein Mart.

Ivanka was also criticized earlier this month after she posted a video of herself dancing with her two sons — two days after she launched her book “Women Who Work.” Social media users accused her of staging the video to promote the book.

Prior to the release of her book, Ivanka said she would not be overly promoting it because of ethics in her role at the capital.

“In light of government ethics rules, I want to be clear that this book is a personal project. I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November. Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances,” Ivanka wrote in a Facebook post April 21.
