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.”

Disney heiress who went undercover to Disneyland ‘livid’ at conditions and pay
Heiress Abigail Disney went to one of her family's resorts to see conditions for workers herself and was disgusted by what she saw.
In comments to Yahoo News podcast "Through Her Eyes," Disney described how she went to Disneyland in California undercover and found that workers at the resort were treated poorly—and underpaid.
"Every single one of these people I talked to were saying, 'I don't know how I can maintain this face of joy and warmth when I have to go home and forage for food in other people's garbage,'" said Disney.
Ex-Peru president wanted for corruption arrested in the US
Former Peruvian president Alejandro Toledo was arrested in the United States Tuesday to face extradition to his home country on corruption charges, authorities in the South American nation said.
The 73-year-old is suspected of involvement in the sprawling Odebrecht scandal in which the construction giant paid hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes throughout the continent to secure huge public works contracts.
The Peruvian attorney general's office announced on Twitter that Toledo "was arrested this morning for extradition, in the United States."
Toledo has been formally charged with receiving a $20 million payment from Odebrecht to grant it the tender to build the Interoceanic Highway that links Peru with Brazil.
