Robert Mueller Just Ruined Trump And Jared Kushner’s Thanksgiving
President Donald Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, will have a different kind of Thanksgiving holiday this year. Instead of planning a family dinner, they will hunker down with their attorneys to figure out what to do after it was it was reported that special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is digging into Jared Kushner’s contacts with Russian operatives.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal:
“Robert Mueller’s investigators are asking questions about Jared Kushner’s interactions with foreign leaders during the presidential transition, including his involvement in a dispute at the United Nations in December, in a sign of the expansive nature of the special counsel’s probe of Russia’s meddling in the election, according to people familiar with the matter.”
Kushner has consistently lied about meetings and contacts with Russians. Kushner was a central figure in the campaign and has been Trump’s right-hand man in the White House. Kushner was present at Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russians. Kushner was involved in email chains about Trump meeting with Putin during the campaign.
Yet he keeps failing to disclose things that raise real questions about whether he colluded with Moscow during the campaign — and whether he’s been trying to cover it up ever since.
This has opened a big hole in Donald Trump’s plausible deniability. The investigation isn’t going to get much closer to the president than his own son in law. Kushner tells Trump everything, so it impossible to believe that he withheld information about collusion with Russia from the president.
If Kushner falls, he will bring Trump down with him.
