The Washington Post and Reuters are out with new salacious scandals tonight. To think I was going to head on over to the teevee to watch some nonsense. But no, the fake news media is in non-stop rumor mill mode, even on Friday’s.
Alas, this is something both conservatards and leftshits can agree on: FIRE JARED KUSHNER.
He has all sorts of fucked up ties. Plus, him and his wife are liberal demoshits, so we’d be wise to cull them from the White House before more harm is done.
Tonight’s manufactured scandal comes by way of Moscow (fucking shocker). I always assumed Kushner had shady ties with the Chinese, who are helping to finance his evil building, 666 5th Avenue. But the demotards would never besmirch their Chinese masters, so it’s more Russia.
Here is the scoop, via Reuters.
U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, had at least three previously undisclosed contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States during and after the 2016 presidential campaign, seven current and former U.S. officials told Reuters.
Those contacts included two phone calls between April and November last year, two of the sources said. By early this year, Kushner had become a focus of the FBI investigation into whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, said two other sources – one current and one former law enforcement official.
Kushner initially had come to the attention of FBI investigators last year as they began scrutinizing former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s connections with Russian officials, the two sources said.
While the FBI is investigating Kushner’s contacts with Russia, he is not currently a target of that investigation, the current law enforcement official said.
The new information about the two calls as well as other details uncovered by Reuters shed light on when and why Kushner first attracted FBI attention and show that his contacts with Russian envoy Sergei Kislyak were more extensive than the White House has acknowledged.
Separately, there were at least 18 undisclosed calls and emails between Trump associates and Kremlin-linked people in the seven months before the Nov. 8 presidential election, including six calls with Kislyak, sources told Reuters earlier this month. Two people familiar with those 18 contacts said Flynn and Kushner were among the Trump associates who spoke to the ambassador by telephone. Reuters previously reported only Flynn’s involvement in those discussions.
Six of the sources said there were multiple contacts between Kushner and Kislyak but declined to give details beyond the two phone calls between April and November and the post-election conversation about setting up a back channel. It is also not clear whether Kushner engaged with Kislyak on his own or with other Trump aides.
FBI scrutiny of Kushner began when intelligence reports of Flynn’s contacts with Russians included mentions of U.S. citizens, whose names were redacted because of U.S. privacy laws. This prompted investigators to ask U.S. intelligence agencies to reveal the names of the Americans, the current U.S. law enforcement official said.
Kushner’s was one of the names that was revealed, the official said, prompting a closer look at the president’s son-in-law’s dealings with Kislyak and other Russians.
FBI investigators are examining whether Russians suggested to Kushner or other Trump aides that relaxing economic sanctions would allow Russian banks to offer financing to people with ties to Trump, said the current U.S. law enforcement official.
The head of Russian state-owned Vnesheconombank, Sergei Nikolaevich Gorkov, a trained intelligence officer whom Putin appointed, met Kushner at Trump Tower in December. The bank is under U.S. sanctions and was implicated in a 2015 espionage case in which one of its New York executives pleaded guilty to spying and was jailed.
The bank said in a statement in March that it had met with Kushner along with other representatives of U.S. banks and business as part of preparing a new corporate strategy.
So the whole Susan Rice unmasking fuckery comes back to us full circle. It is now revealed, via ANONYMOUS sources inside the CIA/FBI, that Kushner was talking to actual Russians. I mean, this is the gist of the charge. He also met with the head of one of Russia’s largest banks, who had ties to Putin. Because of this, the ‘intelligence agencies’ are trying to foment a conspiracy that Kushner was contacting these MUH Russians to help finance his evil building, 666 5th avenue, when in fact the Chinese are already doing that.
What do we have here? A whole lot of subterfuge, promoted by people who hate Trump and want to see him DIE IN JAIL. It’s important to note the all of these leaks are being done with malice, not for the benefit of the country. Those fuckers on capitol hill have been wheeling and dealing since the country was founded. Now, all of a sudden, Trump is in office and they’re all monks, besides themselves with patriotic grief at the specter of calling a few Russian diplomats on the phone — which everyone knew could be tracked.
Sadly, this is a giant nothing-burger. The DNC and the “IC” are just making themselves to look like submental reprobates, with all of these moronic conspiracy theories.Comments »
