Today, we began by asking our top associate solitary reporter, Johanna Jones, to speak with Donald Trump’s Son-in-Law-in-Chief, Jared Kushner, to ask him how he is feeling.
Kushner is 37, and is one of the few people whom Trump (an untrustable man himself) trusts.
With no previous government service at all, Trump selected him to be one of his top senior advisors, starting on Inauguration Day.
This automatically gave him access to the most sensitive intelligence information given to his father-in-law every day, but now, General Kelly, a man who has a lot to worry about these days, has downgraded Kushner’s security clearance in the wake of the Rob Porter scandal.
As CNN (Trump’s nemesis) has reported (https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/28/politics/donald-trump-jared-kushner-investigations/index.html), Kushner has been hit by a triple whammy.
First, the security access downgrade.
Second, The Washington Post reported that at least four countries (China, Israel, Mexico, and the United Arab Emirates) have privately discussed ways they could manipulate Kushner "by taking advantage of his complex business arrangements, financial difficulties, and lack of foreign policy experience.”
Third, Special Counsel Robert Mueller III is asking questions about Trump’s business dealings with Russia before he began his highly unlikely bid for the presidency. Kushner met with high-level Russians four times before his father-in-law’s inauguration.
Prompt as always, ASR Jones spoke with Kushner early this morning.
“SR,” she began, "Jared is ecstatic!”
“How could that be?" we asked, with incredulity.
“He’s taken a job with Netanyahu as his number one foreign policy advisor.”
“Wow, Johanna," we said. "But what about Ivanka?”
“Oh, SR, that’s easy. When she married Jared, she became an Orthodox Jew just like him. She never liked living in Washington anyway."
