Trump Lawyers Warned Him About Kushner Involvement In The Russia Election Hack: Report

Published

on

According to a Wall Street Journal report published Monday, some of President Donald Trump’s lawyers were so concerned with Jared Kushner’s ties to Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election that they told the president in June that his son-in-law should step down as senior White House adviser.

The President’s legal advisers were worried about Kushner’s failure to disclose several contacts with foreign entities on his security clearance form, the Journal reports.  Additionally, Kushner’s numerous business dealing with Russian officials —some of which are currently being investigated by federal and Congressional investigators — was concerning to the lawyers.

Despite all the warnings and mounting evidence surrounding Kushner ties to the Russian government, Trump was not convinced that his son-in-law presented a threat to his young presidency and ignored his Lawyers’ advice.

“I didn’t agree with the president’s view at all. I thought it was absurd and I made my views known,” lawyer John Dowd told the Journal.

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

Published

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.”
