Not A Suspect?

He’s not a suspect, but Jared Kushner Under Scrutiny in Russia Probe, Officials Say. He is “a person of interest” who is “helping the authorities with their inquiries” because he is a good citizen.

He suffers from the same problem as his father-in-law, too many failed project to attract investment from domestic sources, so they reach out for “alternate sources of financing.

Are you say the president went to Jared’s?

It’s now more than just attracting investment. The attempts at creating a back-channel via Russian cryptographic tools and equipment isn’t treason? And his excuse for not revealing those meetings — He forgot about them!? Jared should be reminded: Forgetting about a murder does not absolve a murderer.

Jared should be charged and squeezed until he squeals. If his father-in-law pardons Jared that moves the impeachment clock forward.

I’m getting annoyed by McMasters! See his comment when asked about Jared?

McMaster: “We have back channel communications with a number of countries. what that allows you to do is communicate in a discreet manner”

That’s the 2nd BIG lie for this Admin by him! And that’s not at all *honorable* as I was taught it!

I also see POTUS is showing the World he is indeed a a 6YO Putz in Italy, complete with toy car even! Geez.

What I’m saying, Shirt, is that he is dependent on Russian banks to finance his projects, just like Trump. Jared’s family is also hawking the EB-5 visa program in China that gives the wealthy a Green Card if they invest $500,000 in the US and create 10 jobs. The Australians want $4.5 million for their version, and Canada stopped their program. There is no reason for Kushner, inc, to be holding seminars in the Middle Kingdom if they could get money from US investors.

If Trump pardons Jared and/or Flynn they can no longer claim 5th Amendment rights. If they lie, they can be prosecuted for perjury. Trump’s lawyers shouldn’t let him do anything that stupid.

Once again, McMaster lies by telling the truth. We do, indeed, have back channels to other governments, we just don’t ask to use their secure systems to avoid our intel services. We damn sure shouldn’t use morons like Erik Prince to do anything that should be secure or secret.

Trump’s lawyers are Russian (or at least do business in Russia). So I wouldn’t expect much good advice from them! Pretty sure Putin has had enough of Trump, though he may still have some amusement value.

A white lie is still a lie for someone with McMaster’s reputation & position. It’s dishonorable, at best. Unless he’s actually working with the investigators. We’ll see I guess.

Something I’m sure you’ve read about Bryan. One of the consequences of trump’s stupidity & ignorance!

I saw a news item in WaPo that is a primary reason I’ve always been disgusted with the USA claiming “Moral Superiority”, especially against Muslim nations! It’s always been a sham & a fraud!

At this point I think McMaster is just trying to keep the damage to a minimum with no hope of getting anything positive done. His patience till be exhausted soon enough and he will resign, if Trump doesn’t fire him.

The South China Sea has always been an interesting place for recce aircraft. The discovery of oil deposits just made it more interesting.

Wherever you have a fundamentalist Abrahamic religion you have women being abused. It makes no difference which of the three is involved, all three lead to sexual abuse of girls, with marriage considered an ‘honorable’ way of covering it up.

You may be right about McMaster’s. I did say when he was 1st proposed it’d be a tough place for him. *shrug*

I’m just pretty fed up with all politicians right now. Whatever *side* they’re on. With maybe a few exceptions.

Funny, on Twitter, I’ve recently been followed by a few US Dem. Congressmen/Senators! LOL Latest is David Cicilline from Rhode Isl. Haven’t check his voting record yet. Not sure I’ll bother. I did the 1st couple, blocked 1.

One of my proudest new followers is an Atheist Hamster! He’s a cute li’l fellow! LOL

I do get a few laughs from Twitter! Very few.

As for the rest above… Yeah. *shrug*

As you may be aware, I have been represented by some of the lowest forms form of Congresscritters while living in Southern California and now Northwest Florida. Far too few have been arrested, convicted, and jailed for their crimes, but I’m grateful for those who have. They are probably looking for ideas, as few Congresscritters seem to have any of their own, and they need to ‘borrow’ some prose for their speeches. It is likely that it is actually a staffer assigned to the Twitter account.

Humphrey seems to have his act together, which is more than you can say for those who want to contest his statements.

The few competent people he has are going to bail out and write books. That is a better plan than trying to work on Prozac 😈

I know m8. I don’t know how you’ve put up with living in Florida! You are 1 tough ol’ sod! 😉 😀 And I’ll have to admit, it’s not a bad place to live. Would be a lot better if the Politicians there just evaporated!

I’m enjoying Humphrey! He has a wicked sense of humor! Just my type of rodent! 😆

Yep. I very much doubted any politician would spend much of their time tweeting! Errr… I don’t count POTUS as a politician, of course. Moron, idiot, fool, narcissist, hypocrite, thief, pathological liar, sociopath, philanderer, racist, bigot, … yes! Politician… not in the slightest!

I think I may have left out a few traits. More than a few in fact. All negative. Can’t think of a single positive one! Even Hitler had a few positive traits!

The way things are going, especially in Europe after the fools visit, I hear the German Chancellor making noises I’ve read about & heard from my Paternal Grandfather twice before! WW3 may be US & Russia against the rest of the World, even countries that stayed out of the last two! Not sure Russia would ally with the USA though. Putin can’t be trusted for anything.

A-mazing.

Trump doesn’t have any pets. He has to be one of the few Presidents since the country was founded that had no pets. He should get a dog, so something will love him in spite of what he is. Maybe a service dog that will sit on him if he tries to tweet…

If you see pictures of a ‘tuxedo’ cat on the press secretary’s podium in the
White House, that is actually the Clinton’s cat, Socks, who liked it because the lighting kept it warm.

Putin won’t ally with Trump, he’ll let Trump screw everything up and then pick up the pieces. The Russians win when the West is destabilized. Putin won big from Trump’s trip, while the US lost ground.
