All smiles: Jared Kushner appeared to have a serene start of the week, despite having just been named as the mystery official who told then-Trump-adviser Michael Flynn to contact Russia
Greeting the day: The senior White House adviser, 36, was seen leaving his home in the upscale neighborhood of Kalorama in Washington, D.C. a bit before 7:30 this morning
Duo: Jared smiled as he guided his daughter Arabella, six, towards a parked Secret Service vehicle, on his way to complete the school run
Jared, who stuck to his classics in a suit and striped tie, kept his eyes trained on the car and looked relaxed while he seemed to listen to something Arabella was telling him.
Arabella, his and Ivanka Trump's eldest child, carried a multicolored backpack on her way to school.
Jared is currently facing increased scrutiny?over actions taken during the transition period between the November election and the January 20 inauguration, due to the former national security adviser Michael Flynn's guilty plea on charges of lying to the FBI.
President Donald Trump's son-in-law was identified as a 'very senior' transition official who directed Flynn to contact foreign governments, including Russia, about a U.N. Security Council resolution last December.?
Jared wasn't named in court papers, but a former transition official who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly discuss the matter confirmed his involvement.

On Sunday, Ivanka also appeared perfectly relaxed while departing her D.C. home with her two eldest children.?
The first daughter, 36, was all smiles as she stepped out of the house, holding the hands of?Arabella and Joseph, four.
Meanwhile, her husband, Jared Kushner, appeared at the Saban Forum in town to take part in a question and answer session about the Trump administration's approach to the Middle East.
Jared, making his first public remarks on his efforts to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, said that the president continues to weigh his options on whether to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, or whether to proceed immediately in moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.?
'The president is going to make his decision,' Kushner said in a rare public appearance at the event hosted by the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank. 'He is still looking at a lot of different facts.'?
Meanwhile, Ivanka and her children all appeared to be in their Sunday best, with Arabella sporting a black and white dress, white jacket and a bow on her head.

Flaunt your flare skirt like Ivanka in Carolina Herrera
Ivanka stepped out with her children for Sunday funday in a casual beige sweater and flare skirt from Carolina Herrera.
The blonde beauty is a big fan of the designer known for the classic white shirt and dressing much of the Upper East Side well to do in NYC. With classic, feminine tailoring and luxurious fabrics, Carolina Herrera is a prim and proper choice for the First Daughter.
We love how this skirt can be dressed down for brunch or gussied up with a silk blouse for a workday. The best part is that it's on sale now at MyTheresa for $807.
But if you want to grab this look for less, and a flared skirt is such a wardrobe workhorse, check out our edit below.
Little Joseph appeared to be wearing a dapper little suit, while mom Ivanka braved the December chill with bare legs, wearing a black skirt and cream sweater accessorized with chunky earrings.
The night before, Ivanka shared a touching photo of her youngest son, Theodore, one, bundled up in a baby sleeping bag. 'Best date ever! #SaturdayNight,' she wrote on Instagram.?
On Saturday, Jared was seen with a grin on his face as he and Ivanka?went for a jog -?just hours after his name first surfaced in the former FBI Director Robert Mueller's investigation into possible links or coordination between Trump's campaign?and the ?Russian government.
Kushner looked directly at the camera and grinned while he and Ivanka left their residence around noon wearing matching black sportswear.
The family were keeping up serene appearances, it seemed, even though the situation they are in is anything but.?
A rare appearance: Ivanka's husband Jared was busy on Sunday appearing at?the Saban Forum 2017 in Washington to discuss the Middle East
'Best date ever!' The night before, Ivanka shared this image of her youngest son, Theodore, one, in a baby sleeping bag
Ivanka and Jared?were out and about for about 40 minutes before they returned from their run and it seems it is just what they needed after a chaotic week.?
The first daughter had spent the past few days in India where she attended an annual entrepreneurship summit. She co-hosted the event alongside?India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
At the speaking engagements and dinners, the First Daughter donned a series of printed gowns that were criticized by an Indian media outlet.
The Daily O, an Indian publication, lambasted Trump for her pricey 'Oriental-style' ensembles which they described as a 'superficial assimilation' of their culture. Ivanka has not commented on the matter.
Meanwhile, following claims that Jared is the mystery official,?President Trump has been accused of obstruction of justice.
On Saturday, Trump appeared to tweet that he knew Flynn lied to federal investigators over his contact with Russian officials but that he never needed to lie himself because all his their interactions were 'lawful'.
'I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!' the tweet said.

Not fussed: Jared flashed a smile to photographers before heading out for a jog
All together: The pair were out and about for the light exercise outing for about 40 minutes
The tweet appeared to be a attempt by the president to defend Flynn and disprove suspicion that there was any collusion between his aides and the Kremlin.
Instead, it placed scrutiny back on him and fueled talk of a different offense entirely.?
Stunned political pundits and Democrats quickly linked it to Trump's apparent request of former FBI Director James Comey to go 'easy' on Flynn the day after he was fired.
However, later on Saturday two inside sources told The Washington Post that it was Trump's personal lawyer, John Dowd, who made the tweet. It's not clear if the president saw it before it was posted.
Flynn was fired on February 13. At the time, the president said the decision was based on him misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his interaction with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak on December 22.
He did not admit to knowing Flynn lied in an interview with the FBI in January.
On February 14, Trump met with FBI Director Comey. Comey claims he was asked during this meeting to 'go easy' on Flynn and drop the investigation into Russian collusion.
He was fired on May 9 and says it was because he never complied with this alleged request.
The president has never admitted asking him to 'go easy' on Flynn and said that he fired him over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal - which many say won him the election - months earlier.?
