    The Israeli government has admitted to reaching out to members of Donald Trump's transition team last December before he was sworn into office.

    Now the Special Counsel in the Russia investigation is trying to determine if the Trump team, Moscow and Israel joined forces to undermine the US government.

    One key person under the microscope is Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and middle east envoy.

    Al Jazeera's Shihab Rattansi reports from Washington, DC.
