Donald Trump has really begun to feel the heat from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mueller is looking into the Kremlin’s interference into the U.S.’s 2016 presidential election and any ties to the Trump campaign. Former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, made a plea deal. That means, he handed Mueller dirt on someone(s) at the top. What about Trump’s top adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner?
Ivanka Trump found a Trump mini-me in her husband. He comes from a real estate mogul’s family. Governor Chris Christie, as New Jersey’s district attorney, sent Jared’s father, Charles Kushner, to prison for a disgusting crime. That is why Christie never made it to U.S. attorney general, despite debasing himself at the feet of The Donald.
Charles Kushner pled guilty to a tax fraud scheme. He claimed “hundreds of thousands of dollars in phony deductions for office expenses at the partnerships he created to manage the apartment buildings he owned,” according to The Washington Examiner. The senior Kushner also committed fraud by making political contributions in his employees’ and associates’ names, especially given that they knew nothing about it.
Here is where it gets really ugly. Charles Kushner thought that his brother-in-law and his sister were trying to set him up and were working with Christie. Jared’s father got even by hiring a prostitute to entice Jared’s uncle into a “sexual encounter.” Then, Jared’s father had the whole thing videotaped in the New Jersey hotel. The cherry on top of the whole mess was when Charles Kushner sent the tape to his own sister. Jared’s father went to prison.
Now, federal prosecutors in New York are looking at the Deutsche Bank AG $285 million loan it made to Jared Kushner’s family real estate business exactly one month before the 2016 presidential election. Kushner was a top adviser in the Trump campaign at the time. The Brooklyn U.S. attorneys subpoenaed the bank Friday for those contracts and anything else associate with the loan.
The financial disclosure forms that Kushner filed indicated that he has a $5 million to $25 million line of credit with the bank, according to The New York Times. This investigation actually may be completely separate from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign.
Jared Kushner’s family business, Kushner Company, used the EB-5 investment-for-immigration program. Kushners’ scheme offered wealthy Chinese citizens green cards in trade for their very expensive condominiums. Jared Kushner’s sister flashed gigantic photos of Ivanka Trump on her presentation screen as she gave her sales pitch.
People are well aware that Ivanka’s West Wing office is next to her father’s office, so the implication was clear. Buy a condo, get access to the U.S. president.
According to The New York Times, a spokesperson for the Kushner Company, Chris Taylor, said:
‘(The company) has cooperated and will continue to cooperate with any reasonable request for information.’
Notice the word “reasonable” in Taylor’s comment? Jared Kushner “forgot” 100 meetings with foreign people when he filled out his forms to get his top-level security clearance and had to add them. Is he really cooperating?
The plot thickens.
