Lamprey in charge. Because we know how well that advice to fire James Comey worked out. Then again, can Individual-1 really trust a son-in-law.
President Donald Trump has reportedly tapped son-in-law Jared Kushner to lead the fight against House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
As reported by CNN on Friday, the president is relying on Kushner and chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to come up with a plan aimed at beating back investigations launched by House Democrats into the president’s efforts to get Ukraine to dig up dirt on his political opponents.
Kushner has been the mastermind behind some of Trump’s biggest mistakes as president, most notably the decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, which led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller and the conviction of multiple Trump associates for a wide array of offenses.x
Remember Trump knows Russia interfered on his behalf in 2016 because he told the ambassador and foreign minister he was cool with it. He wants to frame Ukraine et al for it to let Russia off the hook. This is all knowing disinformation, from the White House lawn. https://t.co/HgKYBg3Pzc— Brian Beutler (@brianbeutler) October 4, 2019
There was of course a lot of craziness, lies and invective in President Trump’s appearance on the White House lawn a few moments ago. But remember what I’ve been saying. The centerpiece of what Trump, Giuliani and Barr are after is trying to push the conspiracy theory that he and Russia were set up. That the real collusion was with Ukraine and other allied countries plotting to frame him during the 2016 election. And here he is, during this press availability, going on a rant about the United Kingdom, Australia and Italy plotting against him during the 2016 election.

Do you want to secretly, legally send money to Jared Kushner? I wrote about it last June. Why isn't this a scandal? I don't know. But it's definitely corrupt. https://t.co/ZewAKyFsoA— Anne Applebaum (@anneapplebaum) October 3, 2019
