Jared Kushner Is Completely F*CKED As FBI Closes In (DETAILS)

As the investigation into connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government widens, the FBI has , Jared Kushner. Kushner has been nearly omnipresent in everything regarding the Trump campaign, transition, and administration so far. There is no investigation of Kushner himself, though some would argue there should be. After it was revealed that Kushner had from his applications for high-level security clearance, many expected the investigation to include him.

Rather than charging Kushner with anything, it appears that the FBI wants to question him about meetings he had with diplomat Sergey Kislyak and another Russian, banker Sergey Gorkov. Those meetings took place after the 2016 election. Unlike Trump’s other emissaries Paul Manafort and Mike Flynn, who are actual subjects of the investigation, Kushner appears to be cooperative thus far. He has even volunteered to testify before Congressional committees regarding the situation.

Last Friday, the Washington Post  the investigation had reached “a person of interest” currently serving in the White House, which caused many to speculate at the time that it was Kushner who was next to be questioned. The identity of that official wasn’t revealed in that report, but the list of potential subjects was short. Kushner certainly has more close contact with the president than Jeff Sessions or even Rex Tillerson, the other names floated at the time as possible contacts.

The pivot to Jared Kushner is the first big addition to the investigation since Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as special counsel for the Russia probe. It is not clear yet exactly what the FBI intends to question Kushner about regarding Russia, other than the two meetings. There will undoubtedly be more to this inquiry than has been made public so far.

Personally, I hope Jared has ambitions higher than his current position as a lackey for his father-in-law. This could make for an interesting twist.
