Kushner to visit Saudi Arabia and Qatar seeking deal to end crisis

Source: Axios

Jared Kushner will travel in the coming days to Saudi Arabia and Qatar in a last-ditch effort to resolve the dispute between the Gulf countries.

Why it matters: Fixing the rift between Saudi Arabia and Qatar would bring a sense of stability back to the Gulf and notch a last-minute achievement for Kushner and the Trump administration before Jan. 20.

Background: In June 2017, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and other Sunni states severed ties with Qatar and closed their airspace and sea routes to Qatari planes and vessels. They claimed their decision was based on Qatar's support for terror groups and relations with Iran.

The U.S. maintains close ties with both Qatar and its rivals, but the Trump administration's several attempts to reconcile the parties were unsuccessful.

20. He just might be exploring exit strategies for the whole lot of them.

I wouldn't be surprised if a defector-r-them mode is in effect to avoid legal issues after Jan. 20.

22. Far off-shore, far, far away. Expidite or send in SEAL Team 6. Drag his ass back here for trial.

(can't help feeling a bit better about firing squads, when appropriate, of course.

23. I like the Seal Team 6 recommendation.

Drag trump back without his hair and face products and the only orange we see when he appears in court is his jumpsuit.

2. He'll be taking suitcases of money

To stash far away from the New York State investigators.

4. And suitcases of documents?

Or in this day and age, pockets full of thumbdrives?

Jared is in my top ten of Trump "officials" I'd like investigated come January 21.

6. That's what I think, too

Running scared. Also the Saudis own him (real estate debt). Good riddance!

9. Probably marketing...

State secrets while he still has access. He's in debt and is looking for refuge outside the US. I wonder who will tell him he can go there and then turn on him.

14. In other news, a plane loaded with covid vaccine just flew from Belgium to Chicago.

C'mon, Jared, you gotta send your stormtroopers to seize the vaccine. There's a profit to be made. This stuff is better than stockpiles of PPE or ventilators.

Quit wasting time with "Middle East Peace". Unless, of course, there's a profit in it for you.

17. Burying more evidence.

So much of the shit that has come out about underhanded dealings, I think there is so much more to come out, but he never thought he would have to bury all of it if Trump had pulled off his second term and beyond. Now he's trying to check the strings to see how many of the strings can be traced directly to him and how to bury them.
