MSM is reporting that Jared Kushner is the person of interest or subject of the FBI probe into Russia meddling in US elections.
I say subpoena the whole lot of Trump's cabinet.
This is topic number 1 on MSNBC the last 8 hours. The first domino to fall ? An empty tease ? Keep watching as there's much interest. I hope it's significant and tangible.
here's a recent CNN story
This certainly is looking bad for Kushner and all of Trump's enablers. Setting up a back door secret channel with Putin so that American intelligence agencies cannot spy on their conversations is getting into the area of treason. Not disclosing phone calls and other contacts should be grounds for immediate dismissal...a felony if there was willful intent.
Yet Trump has put Kushner on the team that is going to investigate the source of the leaks. WTF. Kushner has his hands in everything.
Wshington Post: Russian ambassador told Moscow that Kushner wanted secret communications channel with Kremlin
Yes I agree that the special counsel and the FBI investigations will take a long time...a year or more. Don't know about the Congressional investigations...they just kind of plod along. However, what is moving much faster is the unofficial investigation driven by leaks. It would seem that the New York Times and the Washington Post each have their respective "deep throats" within the government who are only too happy to leak, leak, leak. It is the leaks that have accelerated much of the media investigations.
However, Trump has promised to put an end to all those leaks so we'll see what happens.
The thought actually occurred to me that maybe some of the Mike Pence people are leaking with the hope that their Christian Warrior can take over the presidency if Trump resigns or is "fired" by Congress.
A meme yesterday said If the investigation sends Kushner to prison it will be the first time he ever went anywhere on his own.

Not directly related but.... The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Imagine that, a surrogate arranging a back channel to a sworn enemy, and a non government employee at that, it's like,
hey, I want my FIL to help you with Obama sanctions, can we meet at a clandestine location and talk about this? in exchange, we'll build a couple of new hotels at absolutely no cost to you. all we ask is that you give us the land cheap and throw in a couple of bottles of that great vodka Vladimir drinks.......
we don't need no stinking security clearances....
