John Kelly Wants Kushner Out, Demands Trump To Choose Between Him And His Son-In-Law

White House chief of staff John Kelly is infuriated by Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and wants him out of the White House, several news outlets reported Friday night.

According to Politico, Kelly grew angry after finding out that Kushner had been negotiating behind his back with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Politico reported:

Secretary Kelly, “called senior White House officials and demanded a meeting with Trump to deliver something of an ultimatum: If Kushner was going to freelance on DHS issues, the president would have to choose between his son-in-law and the four-star general serving in his Cabinet.”

But Kelly isn’t the only one raising concern about Trump’s family being employed at the White House.

“Privately, Trump has asked some senior staffers their thoughts on how Kushner and Ivanka Trump can withstand the personal attacks, according to White House officials,” Politico noted.

Trump might not have to choose between the two. Legal liability may end up driving Kushner away from his role at the White House.

Politico stated, “the concerns voiced to Trump by staffers and lawyers have been more about the legal ramifications that Kushner could inflict on the president, related to the ongoing probes into Russia’s role in the 2016 election.”

If You Thought Kamala Harris Was Tough On Brett Kavanaugh, Just Wait Until She Debates Mike Pence

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate. Following the news of Biden’s selection, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace called into her network while on vacation to point out that Harris will mop the floor with Vice President Mike Pence during debates.

“The other piece of reporting I’ve picked up in the past week was from the Trump team, that from their viewpoint, because Donald Trump has no capacity to understand that this is the selection of a person to run the government with the president, he only saw this in terms of casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, and this was the pick that scared them the most,” Wallace told MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

“They thought she would more than go toe-to-toe with [Mike] Pence, they thought she could chew him up and spit him out and pointed to her cross-examination of one Bill Barr,” she explained.

“I don’t know that there’s a better debater or questioner on the political field right now,” Wallace said. Her skill-set is unmatched in terms much being able to articulate an argument, to patiently wait to make her point and look at the argument that the democratic ticket has to make.”
