BABY IN A CORNER. 'Infuriated' Jared Kushner Lost His Cool When Russians Didn't Deliver Hillary Dirt

Kushner claimed he had no idea why he was in that notorious Trump Tower meeting. Newly-released testimony indicates otherwise.

Jared Kushner became “agitated” and “infuriate[d]” at the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting when a Kremlin-connected lawyer droned on about U.S. sanctions, instead of delivering on a promise to provide damaging information on Hillary Clinton. That’s according to Rob Goldstone, a British music promoter and friend of the Trumps who helped set up the meeting between Natalia Veselnitskaya and Donald Trump Jr.—and who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the Trump Tower confab.

Goldstone’s testimony stands in contrast to what Kushner said in public about the meeting. In a July 2017 statement, Kushner paints himself as bored and confused by Veselnitskaya’s presentation.

"I had no idea why that topic was being raised and quickly determined that my time was not well-spent at this meeting,” he told the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia inquiry, adding that he texted an assistant and asked for a call on his cell phone to excuse himself from the meeting. But Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee concluded in their final report on Russian interference in the 2016 election that Kushner, along with Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort "had expected to receive—but did not ultimately obtain—derogatory information on candidate Clinton" during the meeting.

Goldstone, for his part, testified that Kushner became visibly angry when Veselnitskaya delivered a lengthy diatribe about U.S. sanctions on Russia and their impact on adoptions—instead of handing over dirt on Clinton.

“After a few minutes of this labored presentation, Jared Kushner, who is sitting next to me, appeared somewhat agitated by this and said, I really have no idea what you're talking about. Could you please focus a bit more and maybe just start again?” Goldstone recalled of the meeting according to hearing transcripts released by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. “And I recall that she began the presentation exactly where she had begun it last time, almost word for word, which seemed, by his body language, to infuriate him even more.”

1. That wasn't the only meeting he was at either.

He also met with Kislyak and Flynn in tRump Tower in his office. Just because one meeting wasn't what the campaign hoped would provide dirt on Hillary, they continued to work with the Russians.

2. I think the Russians found out that the US was beginning to catch on to the shenanigans....

and they pulled back or perhaps there was no dirt on Hillary at all and they were playing cheetolini.

That cheetolini didn't get any files doesn't mean he wan't trying to get some. Maybe the Russians weren't technically colluding on this but cheetolini's people were certainly trying to.

4. I think they were trying to find ways to weaponize the inconsequential crap they had-

 

Like how Wikileaks helped them by omitting dates on emails to make it look like the DNC was always plotting against Bernie. They knew they had the media’s earand it would repeat bullshit without verifying or getting context. They were creating a feeding frenzy.
