Jared Kushner "Under FBI Scrutiny" In Russia Probe: NBC

Tyler Durden's picture

Update:  Just like last week's bombshells, the Washington Post managed to publish an almost identical confirmation of NBC's story within minutes...almost like they coordinated...

And, just like NBC, the Washington Post was careful to hedge their salacious title (though multiple paragraphs down in the body of the article) by pointing out that Kushner is not technically a "target" in any investigation and has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

The Post has not been told that Kushner is a target — or the central focus — of the investigation, and he has not been accused of any wrongdoing. Target is a word that generally refers to someone who is the main suspect of investigators’ attention, though prosecutors can and do bring charges against people who are not marked with that distinction.

 

* * *

Last week when the Washington Post first reported that a senior White House adviser and "someone close to the president" was under scrutiny by investigators looking into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign, we noted speculation from the Twittersphere suggesting that that "someone" might be Jared Kushner (see "Unnamed White House Official Under FBI Investigation In Russia Probe").  Now, at least according to NBC, and information garnered from more anonymous sources, it seems that speculation may have been accurate. 

Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and one of his senior advisers, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple U.S. officials told NBC News.

 

Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said. That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him.

 

The FBI's scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau's sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but on the cusp of the Trump family circle. The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person of interest," but did not name the person.

Not surprisingly, NBC's report is lacking on actual facts on why Kushner may be a "person of interest" in the FBI's inquiry but is long on innuendo as they point out that he met at least once in December with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and he also met last year with a Russian banker, Sergey Gorkov.

Meanwhile, Kushner's lawyer told NBC that he expects to cooperate if contacted in regards to any inquiry.

"Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings," Kushner's lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, told NBC News. "He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.

Of course, despite the sensational headline, NBC's report still offers no facts to support their larger thesis of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign...but it does help advance the provocative narrative just a bit further...

Did he have an unsecured server with CLASSIFIED documents on it that Russia and any child could get into?

 

Oh, wait... that's now "legal."

Hilarious how Trump is playing the media into afrenzy every day.

 

It's a new crisis at WaPo every 8 hours. Those poor reporters must be exahuasted making up bull shit stories 24/7.

I hope the Kosher Nostra's lapdog gets taken down. Can't stand that fucking Weaselwitz, oy.

They might try connecting him to Lev Leviev, a "legitimate businessman" of a certain Zionist faith.

"Court Jew" definition:

 

"In the early modern period, a court Jew, or court factor (German: Hofjude, Hoffaktor) was a Jewish banker who handled the finances of, or lent money to, European royalty and nobility. In return for their services, court Jews gained social privileges, including in some cases being granted noble status."

Paul Kersey's picture

"If the sponsoring noble died, his Jewish financier could face exile or execution. "

I can live with Kushner taking the fall.

Less power to the kikes and more to our people.

Nobody is going to get "gotten" in any of this.  This is just going to be a never-ending series of accusations and rumors.  The rallying cry will be "We just haven't dug deep enough yet!  What are they hiding?"  

Their goal is not to depose Trump, their goal is to burn all resources so nothing can be accomplished.  Delay, stall, subvert and wait for the next election.

Whatever else about Kushner he would not pass info about Trump or related info.

It would make no sense for him to do so.

Is Jared Kushner working for Israel to enable Saudi nuke attack on Iran?

This 36 year old Zionist kid is everywhere he shouldn't be.

Trump needs to unload Jared and Ivanka before the DEMs really do come up with a real charge that sticks.

Henry Ford described it well, "Jews Go To Head Quarters".

Worth a listen, Henry Ford was a great man... the Ford Foundation is a travesty of spiteful vengeance.

I discuss Henry Ford’s statement that “Jews go to Head Quarters”. I discuss various things I observed of the Jews I knew and their mad penchant for seeking out anyone with power, even non-Jews. Jews are an upper-class and the rest of us are a lower class much lower than them but we don’t realise this.

I agree.  I hope this results in Kushner's ouster.  Trump's hands remain clean.  Another 'win' in the making.

"Hilarious how Trump is playing the media into afrenzy every day."

No, it's not hilarious, and it's not that simple.

Trump is not "playing the media" anymore -- he's on defense, and the media is playing the citizenry.

Why that is not glaringly obvious to you, I think I don't want to know...

Comey's revenge.  More to come from this vicious "nut" job who still can't get over that Trump took away his Gulfstream 550 "personal" jet.

Hilary was using MTProto protocol with 256-bit symmetric AES encryption and RSA 2048 encryption, so she was not leaked as Trump is, she knew what she was doing

Then perhaps you'd like to explain the meaning and context of your original statement, how it applies to Hillary's unlawful mail server, and why it would indicate competence on Hillary's part beyond wiping it with a cloth.

Unless, of course, you were just parroting a technobabble talking point.

No worries...

When Jared Zio-Jew doesn't get what he wants from Russia he will blow up another Russian commerical airliner or "attempt" to kill some Syrian and Russian military in "Deir-Ez-Zor"...

Only the NEXT TIME WILL BE QUITE DIFFERENT!
