Jared Kushner now under investigation by special counsel: Reports

Looks like Washington 's golden child is now under investigation. According to reports,  special appointed counsel Robert Mueller is now investigating Kushner for his "extensive ties" to Russia which include business ties and other related activities. The news comes hours after Trump himself tweeted that he was "under investigation" for allegedly firing James Comey, the former director of the FBI. Although, er,  that is only actually a tid-bit of why Trump is now under investigation.    Donald Trump is actually under investigation for alleged and widely purported obstruction of justice charges, which, could potentially lead to impeachment proceedings beginning later this summer. Mueller hasn't quite discovered any findings of obstruction on behalf of Trump as of this point, although,...

Senate Intelligence Committee coming after Trump for private documents: Report

There's also another Trump report out in the Washington post, also here,  which apparent documents have now apparently leaked online. Those documents, also in the form of a letter, revealed that two top officials in the committee, they, are requesting Trump related documents dating back to 15 June to produce. In full. The news comes just hours after it was revealed that Jared Kushner, uh, had allegedly decided to attempt to set up private communication streams with direct-access of Russia's Kremlin government.   The report has as of this writing, apparently, (emphasis on the quotes),  been addressed and the entire statement has not made its way to our newsroom yet. Both news pieces paint a very grim darkness shrouded over Washington right.  The U.S government has per recent polls,...

Trump Administration sought private line to the Kremlin: Reports

WASHINGTON --   According to a Washington Post report, Jared Kushner, is now the prime target of the FBI 's investigation into Trump 's  controversial connection to the Kremlin.  The Post reportedly uncovered that Jared Kushner and several members of the original transition team, uh,  put together private kickbacks and meetings to organise a private line to the Kremlin. The report alleges that Kushner along with Bannon and other top  White House officials attempted to set up the private communications line way back when the elections were still going on in the United States. Interestingly, this goes against everything Trump himself has ever said about Russia's perceived meddling in the election. Perhaps the most interesting part of the report, is,  the fact that the Post uncovere...

What in the world is a “cuck”, Steve Bannon ‘s war in the WH explained

The Steve Bannon - Jared Kushner debacle in the WH is one for the history books. Bannon, an alt-right nationalist who believes in closed borders and "supremacy" is not happy with the "globalist" (his words of description) towards Jared Kushner.  With the announcement earlier this week that Kushner and his views had effectively helped boot Bannon from the NSC, such, came a slew of headlines suggesting  Bannon was "angry" and wanted to quit. The Atlantic brilliantly broke the dispute down citing that the differentiating views between the powers that be "are determining who will stay and who will go".  But, the dispute could have harrowing results on another big name in the White House: The Chief of Staff.  The Atlantic discovered that  The Chief of Staff and Banno...

Jared Kushner is in Iraq on behalf of Trump, but nobody’s sure why

According to the journalist and numerous reports, Kushner, is traveling with the joint chief of staffs who is also on a similar peace mission in the region amid gains by the American military.   WH officials refused to disclose information any further than what is already known: that he "wanted to see Iraq" so there's that.

Jared Kushner latest family member of Trump to get WH position

It appears jobs in the White House come as a family affair these days. According to reports, Jared Kushner is "following all federal ethics laws"  to divest his interests and enter the West Wing as a member of Trump 's top White House team.  Kushner, is the latest in a long line of Trump business allies and family members to gain access to the White House. There are bigger hurdles Kushner would have to take to actually get the job though. A federal anti-nepotism law prevents the President or his cabinet from actually hauling in any kind of relatives to top positions. However, Kushner's lawyers argue that doesn't apply to Kushner's situation because "the nepotism law only applies to cabinet positions". "Mr. Kushner is committed to complying with federal ethics laws and we have been co...
