While the White House would like everyone to believe that the spotlight is off of the Trump family now that the Special Counsel’s report has been submitted, our elected representatives are doing everything they can to keep digging and let the president know he’s not getting away with it so easily.
Unsatisfied with just a four-page summary of the 700-page report from Special Counsel Mueller written by a Trump-appointed Republican lawyer, the investigative bodies of Congress are continuing to do their due diligence to follow up all the many, many, many leads of wrongdoing by the Trump team during and after the the 2016 election while they await the release of the full Mueller Report at some point in the near future.
That much was made clear when CNN reported that Jared Kushner had been spotted in the halls of the Senate this morning. A spokesman for the Senior Advisor to the President confirmed that he had been interviewed in a closed-door session by the Senate Intelligence Committee, though they refused to comment on what the subject of the interview actually was.
The sheer range of possibilities is a damning indictment of Jared Kushner’s actions and the breathtaking disregard for ethical, moral, and legal considerations in his selfish and reckless pursuit of power and wealth.
The interview could be about the Trump Tower meeting he attended in July 2016 with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer and Don Jr., who actively solicited “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. It could be about Kushner’s secret efforts to establish a “back channel” to Russia, ostensibly to discuss the Syrian Civil War. Perhaps it’s about his recent efforts to sell secret nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia or the allegations that he gave classified information to Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman that may have led to the brutal torture an American citizen.
That’s only scratching the surface of all the shady stuff that Jared Kushner is believed to have been involved in during the 2016 election and throughout the Trump presidency. Even if the Mueller report actually concedes that there was no direct collusion between the Trump camp and Russia — which will remain a question mark until we actually see the entire thing — it’s clear that Kushner has enough dirt on him to face serious consequences for a host of other wrongdoing.
