Why isn't anyone talking about the Kushner bailout for 666 5th Ave?

The Kushner's were drowning in debt of over a billion dollars when they got bailed out by a Qatari-backed investment company. If Hunter Biden should be investigated for money received from a foreign entity, then Jared Kushner should as well. Why hasn't the media brought that up?

1. Or the trademarks and patents precious Ivanka has gotten from China

while working in the White House and representing the US at international gatherings.

Ivanka Trump this month received trademark approval from China for a broad array of items, including baby blankets, wallpaper and carpets. That wouldn't be unusual for a global business built on consumer goods such as elegant women's clothing and shoes, but it raises numerous ethical issues given that her father is the U.S. president.

The timing appears especially fraught given President Donald Trump agreed to rescue Chinese telecom giant ZTE Corp. shortly after Ivanka Trump's brand was awarded the trademarks.
Ethics watchdogs say the approvals are problematic on a number of levels, including Ivanka Trump's role representing the U.S. at diplomatic events even though her brand's business could be impacted -- for good or bad -- by relations with foreign nations. Then there's also the conflicts that arise from her father's role as president amid rising trade tensions between the U.S. and China.

“Here, these are your enemies” . And then the torture and killing in Saudis Arabia began in earnest.

Then the real estate buyout put jared in the black.
Then the roundup of dissidents in SA accompanying MBS' rise to power.

4. I think the plan is to take up these things one by one.

The House will keep attention on one topic, vote impeachment, rinse, repeat, by having one committee at a time in the news. I think financial things may be done by a different House committee, and may be next on the list. They are gathering the evidence, and it's more complicated than the current topic.

19. I hope that is the case. Too bad our Dem president, House and Senate will have to spit and chew gum

simultaneously when they take over. So much infrastructure to repair at every level.

7. Jared shook down Qatar using his White House position. Total scum.

But I guess his father-in-law commits so many crimes that there's no room on the page to talk about Jared.

Deplorables are fine with billions from Qatar. There won't even be an investigation.

13. Because Repugs are....

.....allowed to get away with anything.

Maybe it's FOX news framing. And that Democrats seem never to be able to pro-actively out-media, and out-frame them?

Maybe it's just that their base will never vote for a Democrat and that Repugs can break any law, any norm, so long as they hurt POC and immigrants?

Am convinced that the answer does not lie in the content of the 666Fifth Ave. corruption---but in these other areas.

It's deeply disturbing.

Also, unregulated Capitalism is demonic and the media and corporate money protect Repugs "Hugely".

20. We don't expect the same level of quality from our arts and humanities students

(i.e. journalism majors) as we do from those in the hard sciences. Something about measurability? Or more likely we don't pay the avg. arts/humanities teachers enough and they'd rather let grades inflate than put up with the acrimony when they demand vigilance.

15. We know who they are now. It MUST be assumed that the WH traded something for

that loan. To assume otherwise is to ignore decades of history and 3 years of proof.

16. Or in China, Kushner & family selling a buy a property and get a Greencard deal.


They were directly using Dad in the office as a selling point. Supposedly all legal. Sort of.
