Kushner – Stupid or Criminal?

As a strategy, playing dumb works when you are caught with your hand in the cookie jar. 

  1. I didn’t know there were cookies in it.
  2. I was looking for my keys.
  3. Is that my hand?
  4. I didn’t realize my hand was there.
  5. My imaginary friend told me to do it, but I don’t know his name.
  6. I was getting you a cookie, because you looked like you were about to slip into a diabetic coma.
  7. I was going to donate the entire jar to a charity for children with cancer.
  8. I heard there were cookies, but when I saw they were oatmeal I left them in the jar…my assistant can verify that.
  9. I thought this was where you keep the nothing burgers.
  10. I was looking for security clearance.

“I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government,” ~Kushner

Jared Kushner has revised and amended disclosures in his application for government White House security clearance 39 times since filing on March 9, 2017.

He has added financial disclosures, including $10 million in Kushner family real estate holdings, in all he “inadvertently omitted” 77 items.

“I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.” ~Kushner

Jared Kushner also has added more than 100 names to his list of foreign contacts in updated security clearance forms. He claims the original form was submitted prematurely, by accident. 

Jared Kushner has also confirmed four omitted contacts with Russians during Trump’s presidential campaign and transition.

“I am happy to share information with the investigating bodies, I have shown today that I am willing to do so and will continue to cooperate as I have nothing to hide.” ~Kushner

He has agreed to speak to the House and Senate committees only under the stipulation that it be out of the public eye, and NOT under oath. 🤔

“I did not suggest a ‘secret back channel,’ I did not suggest an on-going secret form of communication for then or for when the administration took office.” ~Kushner

Kushner denies requesting ‘a secret back channel’ regardless of surveilled audio tapes of a phone call between Sergey Kislyak and the Kremlin, in which Kislyak states exactly that, and voices concern over the strange request.

At a Dec. 1 2016 meeting with Kislyak, also attended by Flynn, Kushner said he discussed with the Russian ambassador setting up a private communication channel. 

Wait, what? Okay, I suppose the verbiage was different in what he denied: “setting up a private communication channel was discussed,” but “setting up a secret back channel never happened.” Private and secret are not the same, although my thesaurus disagrees. Either way everything that might appear nefarious was insignificant, and everything suspicious was initially omitted by mistake.

“At no time was there any discussion about my companies, business transactions, real estate projects, loans, banking arrangements or any private business of any kind,” Kushner

Kushner admitted to meeting with Russian banker, Sergey Gorkov, head of a Russian state-owned bank and ally of Vladimir Putin, on Dec. 13, 2016. He claims sanctions on Russia were not discussed, and that nothing of substance came from the meeting.

“The fact that I was asking about ways to start a dialogue after Election Day should of course be viewed as strong evidence that I was not aware of one that existed before Election Day.” ~Kushner

In addition to the above, Kushner was named as one of the 8 ingredients in the ‘nothing burger’ meeting Don Jr had with Russians on June 9, 2016. Kushner claims he wasn’t interested in discussing “Russian adoption,” so he texted his assistant asking him to call him so he would have an excuse to leave the meeting. 

It has been established that the meeting had nothing to do with Russian adoption, but rather was an offer of Hillary Clintons hacked emails. 

Did I step in something? Look, I am not a professional, but I did birth three children. I can clearly see that Jared Kushner had a choice. He could admit guilt, or he could appear to be a complete moron who doesn’t understand why he’s in trouble. Kushner is choosing to play the fool. 

Let’s see how that holds up with Mueller.

  1. And I believe Deutche Bank is at the very heart of this, filtering Russian dirty money into Trump and Kushner real estate deals. Deutsche Bank say they have completed an internal audit of Trump’s accounts but have refused to handover relevant documentation to Congress.

  2. Keep it up Lydia, the US news is more appalling each day but you concisely nail it to what I’m thinking when I read the various daily news reports. ( I have never read so many US papers before, but can’t stop now! ) Isn’t there anyone in the US higher echelons allowed to say” Enough Don, get real” or is he untouchable. Surely all his backers in Senate cannot agree with what they are seeing, they must have been in politics a lot longer… I’ve learnt a lot about US politics since the Neon one took office and it does seem that if the Potus wants to hang on and be Omnipotent, he can cling onto it, unless there is a major rebellion amongst his ranks and who wants to step up there currently…. it seems there is a bit of constitution juggling required to rework the exit or some very ethical, stalwart people prepared to stand up and be counted. Are the voters that put him in place really still on his side?… Health care, the Mexi wall, Russia investigations, etc, climate change ( lets not forget that huge chunk of Antartica, a portion of the Larson shelf that dropped off last week, the size of Manhattan +, you can’t really ignore that warning sign that it’s possibly a bit hot)… it’s just a daily roller coaster that he Twitters back on ( Lol, he does kind of appear insane, Potus 45 posting on Twitter in the wee small hours). It makes for an interesting morning news read, but, I feel for all of you who are subject to this 45th rule…and, it does affect the others in the world if the US policies under Potus 45 continue in this vein… it would be sad if P45 takes us all down! ( Just FYI, P45 used to be the name of the form you would receive from your UK employer if you were sacked or resigned and had to take to the Social Security office to register for unemployment benefit 🙂 ) As I am an expat, I don’t know whether the P45 still exists, just saying, thought you would like it !

    1. Thanks Vicky, maybe P45 is a good omen! I keep hearing Mueller is ready, he’s hiring prosecutors and not investigators at this point because the day is coming to prosecute and the investigation is complete. This is a nail biter, and the frustrating thing is that more people aren’t outraged, and I believe the mainstream U.S. media has gone soft on Trump.

  3. He has the smug look on his face that you want to just slap. And, of course, he threw his assistant under the bus. Oh, wait. He didn’t even see a bus! Thanks so much for manning up, buddy.
