A CNN panel led by host John King on Monday laid out all the evidence that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner is in deep trouble when it comes to the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
“Jared Kushner is like an octopus in the sense that his tentacles seem to be everywhere,” King began. “He was at the so-called June 2016 meeting, he had a meeting with Ambassador Kislyak, there’s this alleged contact with WikiLeaks. His tentacles are everywhere, his lawyer says it’s much ado about nothing.
King went on to make the case that the continued new revelations about what Kushner did during the 2016 presidential campaign are particularly troubling because Kushner has had ample time to fully explain his actions.
“He keeps popping up and we keep learning about things that, if he wanted to, months ago, Jared Kushner could have had a news conference, could have had a so-called Friday night document dump,” King said. “But yet, we keep learning about things drip, drip, drip.”
Later in the panel, King laid out all of the misstatements and omissions that Kushner has made since being appointed a White House adviser.
“He failed to disclose meetings on his security clearance forms, we know that,” King said. “He attended that June 2016 Trump Tower meeting where Russian lawyers who said they had dirt on Hillary Clinton came to meet Donald Trump Jr… He met with a Russian banker — close to Putin, under sanctions — during the transition. He sent an email to Hope Hicks about Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks, did not disclose he was using a personal email account for some of this business.”

Law enforcement files discredit Brian Kemp’s accusation that Democrats tried to hack the Georgia election
It was a stunning accusation: Two days before the 2018 election for Georgia governor, Republican Brian Kemp used his power as secretary of state to open an investigation into what he called a “failed hacking attempt” of voter registration systems involving the Democratic Party.
But newly released case files from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation reveal that there was no such hacking attempt.
The evidence from the closed investigation indicates that Kemp’s office mistook planned security tests and a warning about potential election security holes for malicious hacking.
Kemp then wrongly accused his political opponents just before Election Day — a high-profile salvo that drew national media attention in one of the most closely watched races of 2018.
