Abbe Lowell, Kushner’s new lawyer, spoke with MSNBC back in March, nothing the weird coincidence that Trump and Michael Flynn both blasted those who are granted immunity to testify.
“It is a little ironic, right, that both President Trump and Mike Flynn himself, during the campaign, both made those ridiculous statements that if somebody gets immunity, they must be guilty of something. But that’s clearly not the case,” Lowell said.
