Reports by the Washington Post claim that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has opened an investigation into Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, regarding Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. According to an earlier Washington Post report, Mueller is also investigating President Trump himself.
Kushner had met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Russian development bank head Sergey Gorkov, and officials have reportedly suggested that Mueller’s investigation will be looking into those meetings.
According to the Washington Post sources who had reviewed the intelligence reports on the meetings, Kushner had first met with Kislyak to establish a communications line between Trump officials and Russian officials.
Kushner met with Kislyak later, in what the White House called a diplomatic encounter. However, Kushner’s business was also evidently in need of financing for a $1.8 billion real estate purchase, raising questions about whether or not he was mixing personal business with his diplomatic duties.
Kushner had previously agreed to speak with the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding his meetings with Russian officials. Kushner’s attorney Jamie Gorelick said:
“We do not know what this report refers to. It would be standard practice for the Special Counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to Russia. Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.”
That’s right folks, Jared Kushner already offered to tell the Senate everything they want to know- he is not trying to hide ANYTHING, and there is NOTHING to see.
Of course this new investigation into Jared Kushner sounds like nonsense and just seems like one more crazy leftist conspiracy to distract from actually governing the country.
Oh well, we all know the Trump Administration is innocent and if the leftists want them to prove it, so be it. But share this 1 million times if you are TIRED of these RIDICULOUS Russia investigations!
