In the immediate aftermath of the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trumps eldest sons and their better halves arrived completely force contrary to the search, raging contrary to the government for treating Trump just like a criminal. On Twitter,Donald Trump Jr.hystericallytweeted: Bidens uncontrollable DOJ is ripping this country apart with how theyre openly targeting their political enemies. This is exactly what you see happen in 3rd World Banana Republics!!! His fiance,Kimberly Guilfoyle,chimed in,writing: The FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago is really a continuation of the lefts endless & unlawful persecution of President Trump. The failed Biden Regime can do anything to attempt to distract the American folks from the truth that their policies are DESTROYING our nation. On Fox News, Eric Trumpwhined toSean Hannity: Sean, my dad never got so much as a speeding ticket in his life, you understand, until he made one decision, and thats to decrease the escalators of Mar-a-Lago and spend big money and go and also fight because of this country for the very first time, and he did a more satisfactory job than anybody has ever done. Plus they started coming after him.Exactly the same night, Lara Trump made the bold claim that her father-in-law includes a well-known (but entirely innocent) habit of saving newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, photographs, [and] documents, adding he had every rightto take whatever he wanted from the White House.
Because the raid occurred, however, two people have been conspicuously missing from Trumps chorus of defenders: Ivanka Trump andJared Kushner,who’ve along historyof fleeing the scene when Trump did something extra bad in the hopes that folks will forget they were high-level advisers to the worst president in U.S. history. But unfortunately for the Boy Prince of NJ, he currently includes a book to market and doesnt have the choice of riding out this latest scandal zipped right into a garment bag in the rear of Ivankas closet.
Talking to Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday, Kushner was asked to touch upon the FBIs despicable attack against Donald Trump (i.e., the lawfully executed search warrant on Mar-a-Lago, which a federal judge authorized predicated on finding probable cause that the former president could have committed multiple crimes. The Washington Postreportedthat included the possible mishandling of nuclear documents, which Trump laterdenied.) Given the narrative Kushner and Ivanka have attemptedto spin during the last 2 yrs, that is that theyve effectively washed their hands of the 45th president (and actually did so months before Trump left office and incited an insurrection), you may have thought Kushner would try to sidestep the problem, or, at least, not head to bat for his father-in-law. However now facing suspicions he mightve tipped off the FBI, that’s not the road Kushner transpired.
President Trump is really a fighter, hes been a fighter, Kushner told Levin. Ivanka and I were the game of golf with him a couple of days ago and I was joking with him about how exactly, in the manner he drives his enemies so crazy, they always over-pursue him and make mistakes in looking to get him, and thats basically what happened here. [Its] a similar thing being done by exactly the same people just as: Theyre leaking to exactly the same sources, theyre manufacturing fabulous claims that then get debunked shortly thereafter. He added: It really is giving lots of people who wish to have confidence in the fairness of the judicial system and our democracy plenty of pause and concern.
Kushner, needless to say, has long thought that the judicial system is unfair because their own father, Charles Kushner, was prosecuted and found guilty of tax fraud and witness tampering, the latter which involved hiring aprostituteto seduce along with his brother-in-law, filming the encounter, and mailing it to his sister as retaliation against his brother-in-law for cooperating with the Feds. (In accordance with Chris Christie, the then U.S. attorney who prosecuted Kushner the Elder, Jared believed might be found were family matter[s], suggesting these were none of the governments business. Which sounds much like the way the mafia views these exact things.) Charles Kushner was subsequently pardoned by the 45th president.
One of the primary concerns around Trumps possession of classified documents is that the former president may have given ” inside info ” information to foreign adversaries, especially given his reported habit to do so during office. But to no great surprise, none of this came up during Kushners Fox News interview. Levin also didn’t ask Kushner why he was reportedly denied a high secret security clearance as a presidential adviser over concerns about potential foreign influence on him. (Naturally, those fears were reportedly overridden by his father-in-law.) And Levin neglected to say that Kushner recentlyreceived $2 billion from Saudi Arabias sovereign wealth fundfor his new private equity firm, regardless of the funds homework panel reportedly concluding no-one should supply the company a dime.
Michael Cohen: Trump would use ” inside info ” documents in order to avoid prison time
On the main one hand, Cohen is actually extremely biased with regards to the ex-president, due to having attended jail for work he did for the guy. On another, few people probably have an improved notion of how Trumps mind works, so were likely to say, yeah, this checks out.
