Keith Olbermann pointed out in a video he posted on Twitter Wednesday the undeniable evidence that could put Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and top senior adviser, in jail.

Olbermann called “for the immediate arrest of Jared Kushner. If he should not be suspected of money laundering, racketeering and influence peddling, then he should be suspected of obstruction of justice and espionage and possibly worse.”
“There is no other option that can be reasonably entertained,” he added.
Olbermann cites parts of the Espionage Act as a justification in calling for Kushner’s arrest.
The former MSNBC host’s comments come after The Washington Post reported that Kushner attempted to set up a secret line of communication between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer tried to dismiss those claims during his Tuesday briefing.
“Your question assumes a lot of facts that are not substantiated by anything but anonymous sources that are being leaked out,” Spicer said.
But Olbermann went on to call Trump and his team “traitors to this country,” and saying “these people do not believe in the United States of America.”
“Kushner, his wife, Trump, General Allen, General McMaster, General Flynn, the others, are in their souls if not under the law traitors to this country.”
