FBI Russia investigation is 'now at the door of the Oval office', says former Obama administration s

Source: Independent U.K.

Hes the man Donald Trump considers a very smart guy, a very good guy, and a quality person. So smart, so good and with such qualities, indeed, that he blessed his marriage to his eldest daughter, gave him a White House job and tasked him with bringing peace to the Middle East.

Now, it has been confirmed Jared Kushner is a focus of the FBIs investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russias alleged effort to influence the 2016 election.

The Washington Post said investigators were looking at a series of meetings Kushner held last year with Russian officials, including Moscows Ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak.

Right now, were at the door of the Oval Office, Juliette Kayyem, a political analyst who served in Barack Obamas Department of Homeland Security, told The Independent. Its getting wider in terms of its theory, and its getting faster. All of these things explain why the President is lawyering up.

4. I have a bet going.

Russia would not be safe any more.
I think Putin has gotten what he wants.
I am sure moles have been planted.
Plenty of republicans bought off or videos to be shared.
I still think Flynn was bought in to gather military secrets.
Wasn't he with Trump getting briefed before Trump took office.
Flynn could got a lot information before he left.
I think that was the reason for the delay.
Mexico is the close by maybe Canada.
From there to slip away.

Maybe other places in South America...

Fake IDs.
Maybe in a jungle type setting.
It will have to be a place out of the way.
Maybe make a deal with a drug dealer for protection.
Lots of money.

11. They'd never make it there.

Not to say they wouldn't do it. After all, these are some pretty stupid people with very little effort at forethought. Upon arrival at their little jungle paradise they'll surely breath a huge sigh of relief and with the next breath scream in horror at the absence of Nieman Marcus, Sax, et al. Then there's the mosquitoes.

18. Maybe they can find a nice house to stay at.

They are some really rich people down there.

Fancy vacation house.

I think they will get caught trying to get away.

Uncle Putin will want to clean up his mess.

It will be either max security prison or jungle home.

For me to win somebody has to run.

I think the Trump "brand" is pretty much history now. Who wants to be associated with the WORST president in American history, and the ONLY president guilty of treason? A smattering of Trumptards, I'm sure. Maybe some old friends (does he even HAVE friends?). I think you can pretty much wipe your butt with the Trump "brand" now.

When or if it gets to the conviction part I'll consider it but until then it's premature.

33. Ya but just because we look at it as a negative doesnt mean Repugnant voters will do the same.

For example to me making a comment about grabbing a women by her p**** would be a negative and would make me not want to vote for someone but for Repugnant voters its clearly a plus.

23. we may get very little info on the investigation

I know we have been getting leaks, most likely from the White House, but Mueller's investigation might not leak like things have up to now.

I'm afraid we may not hear much about what is going on for awhile. Meanwhile, #45 will continue to swing the wrecking ball.

26. A Quote From the Independent Article cited in the OP

I won't say "shocking" because nothing can shock any of us any more, but here is the quote:


"Just this week, it was Kushner who sat in on Trump’s meeting with Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu, while national security advisor HR McMaster was excluded."

30. Speaking of meetings...

From Wonkette...

Ooh ooh, pick Wonkette, pick Wonkette! We know about those meetings! We wrote about one of them to you in March, explaining that Jared had a secret back-door meeting during the Trump transition AT TRUMP TOWER with both Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. (When we say “back door,” we don’t mean like in the butt, we literally mean the Russian came in the back door.) Then later in March we learned about a second meeting with the Russian ambassador that Jared didn’t actually actually go to (probably getting a pedicure) so he sent his “deputy,” which is hilarious because it means that Jared has a “deputy.” We ALSO learned about a third meeting, where Jared met with this other Russian dude Sergey Gorkov, who is the head of a Russian state-owned bank called Vnesheconombank (VEB). We don’t know what they talked about (hair products probably) but that was a meeting Jared surely did fail to report! That bank, by the way, is under sanctions right now!

Fun fact: Gorkov ALSO used to be deputy chair of another Russian state-owned bank called Sberbank, which is currently being represented by Marc Kasowitz, the lawyer Trump has just retained to defend him against all things “Russia scandal.” And Sberbank was a sponsor of Trump’s 2013 Moscow Miss Universe pageant, and the CEO threw a sexxxxxxxy dinner during that trip where Trump got to meet 10 of Russia’s finest oligarchs and OH FUCK Y’ALL RACHEL MADDOW’S GLENN BECK WHITE BOARD IS GONNA BE BALLIN’ TONIGHT.
