Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, is the “person of interest” that has been mentioned in the media in connection with the Russian investigation. This is developing into treason.
This story is going to be bigly yuge.
Update May 27 2017.
It appears that Kushner wanted to open a back door security channel to the Kremlin and lift sanctions on Russia to get loans from Russian sources.
The main question is surely: “Why do Trump and Kushner want to be financed by Russian sources?”
This story is developing fast. The connections to Sergei Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, possibly a spy master, are too many to be coincidence. There are Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Jeff Sessions, Michael Flynn, and now Jared Kushner. They all have met with Kislyak and all tried to hide those contacts.
Follow the Money
The daily news leaks are confusing. It is like a jigsaw puzzle with all the pieces thrown in a pile an a few pieces picked out each day. The Russia and obstruction of justice pieces are not the main problem. The key to what is unraveling is greed. Both Donald and Jared are up to their necks in Russian money laundering.
As the Russian-Trump ties get investigated so the money laundering threads will unravel. Donald Trumps mistakes were firstly to become president. This brought him fully on the radar. Secondly, was thinking that he could get away with it because he was the president. And Jared is there in step with daddy-in-law.
The Trump-Russia investigation appears to be speeding up. In the next few weeks it is likely that subpoenas will be issued and interviews conducted. Key people are those who previously influenced the Trump campaign and the Trump administration. that includes former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
That Jared Kushner has been revealed to be a “person of interest” explains why he was so keen for the former FBI director James Comey to be fired. The pieces of the jigsaw puzzle are falling into place. Donald Trump admitted on national TV that he fired Comey to stop the Russia probe. Later it emerged that Trump told the Russian foreign minister that he fired “the nut job” Comey and that relieved “great pressure” that Trump was facing from the ongoing probe into the Russia-Trump campaign
Earlier this year, the White House issued a statement saying Jared Kushner had volunteered to testify before the Senate intelligence committee in relation to its Russia investigation.
In a statement from the Senate intelligence committee:
Mr. Kushner will certainly not be the last person the committee calls to give testimony, but we expect him to be able to provide answers to key questions that have arisen in our inquiry,
There are reports that Jared Kushner deleted the tweets on his Twitter account after he was named a person of interest in the investigation into the Trump-Russia scandal. However, no matter how juicy that may sound it is not true. Jared Kushner’s Twitter account says that: “@jaredkushner hasn’t Tweeted.” He is still following 41 and has 44.8k followers, but 0 Tweets.
He did not panic and delete them all. He simply did not tweet. If someone deletes all their tweets,then their twitter account states: “@twittername hasn’t Tweeted.” But in Jared Kushner’s case, he really hasn’t tweeted.
Obstruction of Justice
In a strange twist The Trump administration is reviewing the Code of Federal Regulations, which might be used as a legal “obstruction of justice” move. The the Code of Federal Regulations restricts newly hired government lawyers from investigating their prior law firm’s clients for one year after being hired, but Trump signed an executive order in January extending that period to two years.
Robert Mueller, the special counsel to lead the Trump-Russia investigation worked for the law firm, WilmerHale, which represents Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who met with a Russian bank executive in December, and the president’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who is a subject of a federal investigation.
Mueller did not represent Kushner or Manafort directly at his former law firm. The ethics rule can be waived by the Justice Department, which appointed Mueller. Otherwise Mueller could be barred from investigating Kushner or Manafort, and this could greatly affect the scope of the Trump-Russia investigation.
