Kushner Reveals Four Meetings With Russians; Denies Collusion

From the Washington Post:

Jared Kushner, President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law, plans to detail four meetings he had with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign and transition period — including one set up by Donald Trump Jr. with a Russian lawyer — but will deny any improper contacts or collusion in testimony to a congressional panel on Monday.

Kushner defends his interactions with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and other Russian officials as typical contacts in his role as the Trump campaign’s liaison to foreign governments, according to an 11-page prepared statement he plans to submit for the record, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post.

Kushner is scheduled to testify in closed-door sessions, first before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday and then before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, as part of the congressional probes into Russian interference in the 2016 election and contacts between Russia and Trump campaign officials and associates.

“I did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government,” Kushner writes. “I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.”

  1. This is, of course, the new McCarthyism–the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence.

    We can already hear the current version of the damning questions: “Are you now, or have you ever been, in contact with the Russians? Will you now finally tell this Committee how you colluded with Vladimir Putin to ensure that Hillary lost the election and Trump won? Have you no SHAME, sir?”

    The corporate media and the Democrats are already drawing up their blacklists, and the political clowns are preparing their routines to dazzle the audience. And it’s 1947 all over again.

    • The last poll on this issue I read concluded that about six percent of the American people are giving credibility to this Russia/Trump foolishness being constantly peddled to us by the corporate media and the Democrats. 94 percent of us are sick and tired of this constant drumbeat and realize it’s all propaganda, nonsense, made up drivel.

      Yet, they continue 24/7 trying to sell it to us. Just amazing to watch. Meanwhile media across the board are laying off their reporters, viewership/readership continue to drop, revenues are declining. The little or no trust rating in the media rating hovers in the 80 percent of those polled range.

      The corporate media is committing professional suicide before our very eyes in their quest to destroy Trump, and no one in their ranks is yelling, “HEY! We’re on the wrong path here! Let’s re-exam what we’re doing before we disappear completely.”

  2. Lattimore, Hiss, Atchenson, Keeny, Service, etc were rightly exposed as communist softies by Mcarthy! Only western civilized American natives are fingered by today’s house committee on unAmerican activities- and this is no accident!
