Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is now under FBI scrutiny.

Not the face of a man who would survive prison.

Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and one of his senior advisers, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple U.S. officials told NBC News. 

Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said. That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him.

The FBI's scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau's sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but the Trump family circle. The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person of interest," but did not name the person. The term "person of interest" has no legal meaning. 

The officials said Kushner is in a different category from former Trump aides Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, who are formally considered subjects of the investigation. According to the Justice Department's U.S. Attorneys' Manual, "A 'subject' of an investigation is a person whose conduct is within the scope of the grand jury's investigation."

This is actually not a huge surprise to most of us as this was revealed by other news outlets awhile ago.

However NBC News is the first major news outlet to confirm it.

So even though the FBI is careful not to suggest that Kushner is a target, the very fact that somebody who is part of Trump's inner, inner circle is now part of the investigation certainly means that this can no longer be labeled simply a "witch hunt."

      " there’s a reason why male candidates can shout and are called passionate, and if a woman candidate raises her voice to whip up a crowd, she’s screeching and yelling.”“Oh, I am [pissed],” [Clinton] says. But as a woman in public life, “you can’t be angry for yourself. You just can’t. You can be indignant, you can be annoyed, you can be frustrated, but you can’t be angry … I don’t think anger’s a strategy.”this was an election that was, in many ways, about anger. And Trump and Sanders capitalized on that.

      “Yes.” Clinton nods. “And I beat both of them.”

    May Trump be impeached and Jared end up in the slammer. The Trump family is a pox upon our nation!

    Kushner is a Donald Trump wannabe. I'm glad he's being investigated. He's also probably involved with the Russians (i.e. real estate bank loans) and his business ties are as questionable as Trump's. About a month ago, John Oliver did a most informative segment on Jared and Ivanka - neither of them came out well.

    Today in History 57 yrs ago. May 26, 1960, America charged Russia with espionage. They did the same thing 57yrs ago and America was pissed.


  7. Beneath that urbane exterior, this is one employee's assessment of Kushner. Kushner stiffed her for her bonus for working on a major project for him.
    Told her to take one for the team.
    Who woulda' thunk?

    “We’re talking about a guy who isn’t particularly bright or hard-working, doesn’t actually know anything, has bought his way into everything ever (with money he got from his criminal father), who is deeply insecure and obsessed with fame (you don’t buy the NYO, marry Ivanka Trump, or constantly talk about the phone calls you get from celebrities if it’s in your nature to ‘shun the spotlight’), and who is basically a shithead.”

      Meet the Real Jared Kushner

      He was supposed to be the calm one, cool and unflappable under his Ray-Bans and beltless blue bespoke suits. If Steve Bannon was the Rumpelstiltskin of the administration, donning multiple half-tucked dress shirts at a time and always carrying a clutch of briefing papers and barreling through the administrative state, Jared Kushner, through pedigree and temperament, could reach out one of his long, elegant fingers and tap everyone in the West Wing on the shoulder and urge them to just cool out a bit. In a White House sullied by ties to Russia and all sorts of unsavory characters from the fringe, Kushner was set to float above, surrounding himself with fellow figures from the elite worlds of Manhattan finance and real estate and deep-sixing the harder-edged ideas of the White House’s “nationalist” wing.

      Except that isn’t quite how it has gone in the White House over the past several months. It was Kushner who reportedly pushed for the firing of FBI Director James Comey over the objections of Bannon. And it was Kushner who was the lone voice urging for a counterattack after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the appointment of a special prosecutor, according to the New York Times. And it is now Kushner whose family’s business activities leave him open to the same level of conflict-of-interest charges that have dogged his wife and father-in-law, and Kushner who appears to be as closely tied to the Russian government as anyone serving in the White House: NBC News and the Washington Post reported Thursday that the FBI is taking a close look at his contacts with the Russians.

    Daddy-in-law will pardon him of anything. Or, let him take the blame for everything and get Ivanka back for himself with Kushner's in jail...

    Sometimes Jared looks model handsome and sometimes he looks Ted Bundy creepy.
    Has anyone ever heard him speak? I think he has a goofy voice or a stutter. Not that there is anything wrong with that - but they must think so.
    At any rate, he is a crook. His daddy is a felon and Jared probably committed treason. Too bad, so sad.

      I think he looks like a slightly melted store mannequin.

      " Worst decade for serial killings: 1980 No state in the country has a higher rate of serial murders than Alaska. As was the case in most other states, serial killers in Alaska claimed more victims in the 1980s than in any other decade. Robert Hansen, perhaps the most prolific serial killer in the state’s history, was sentenced to 461 years of prison in 1984 after confessing to the particularly gruesome murders 17 women. More than half of the 51 serial murders that occurred in Alaska took place between 1980 and 1990. Not only does Alaska have a higher incidence of serial killings than any other state, it also has the highest violent crime rate in the country."

    " Jared Kushner speaking to the Russian ambassador about setting up secret communications between President Donald Trump and the Kremlin. To make matters worse, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was in the room at the time."According to The Post, the White House, Flynn’s lawyer and the Russian embassy all refused to comment. Lawmakers are asking that Kushner’s top secret clearance be REVOKEd given the latest findings.
