Kushner is presently under scrutiny as investigators widened the area of investigation of the Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections. The link was not established, The Post reported.
Monday's ceremony at Arlington Ceremony marked Mr Trump's first public appearance since returning to Washington from a nine-day foreign trip.
Franken told "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday that Kushner did not disclose many of his contacts with the Russians when getting his White House security clearance, something Franken believes is "against the law" and "very unusual".
We've also learned that White House communications director Mike Dubke has announced he'll leave the White House, which has some speculating it could be a sign of a larger staff shakeup to come. National security adviser H R McMaster told reporters on Saturday that so-called back-channeling was not unusual.

Kelly told This Week co-anchor Martha Raddatz on Sunday that with countries such as Russian Federation that are not allies of the USA, any means of communication is a "good thing".
As a result, White House began recruiting a number of prominent Washington lawyers with experience in political investigations for Trump to interview who would be charged with running a so-called "war room" to contain the fallout and get the administration back on message, according to reports. "Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States for the communications".
President Trump came to the defense of his son-in-law and key adviser Jared Kushner on Sunday, after allegations that he tried to establish a backchannel communication line with the Kremlin.
But Mr. Kushner is not the subject of a criminal investigation.
Current and former US officials said Mr. Kushner's activities, like those of many others around Mr. Trump, are under scrutiny as part of the investigation. The Post's story cited U.S. officials who had been briefed on intelligence reports.
"I think we should look at that...this is a pretty bad breach".
