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.”

Trump rages at Sally Yates minutes before she testifies in the Senate: Greatest political crime of the century!
President Donald Trump lashed out at former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates on Wednesday, just minutes before she was set to deliver her opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Sally Yates has zero credibility,” Trump tweeted, as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham was speaking at the hearing.
“She was a part of the greatest political crime of the Century, and ObamaBiden knew EVERYTHING! Sally Yates leaked the General Flynn conversation? Ask her under oath. Republicans should start playing the Democrats game!“

Trump makes pitch on Catholic TV: ‘Catholics like their Second Amendment so I saved the Second Amendment’
President Donald Trump this week made a pitch to Catholic voters based on his assertion that he "saved the Second Amendment."
In a Tuesday interview with the Catholic TV network EWTV, correspondent Tracy Sabol asked Trump if he had a message for Catholic voters.
"Well, I think anybody having to do with, frankly, religion, but certainly the Catholic Church, you have to be with President Trump when it comes to pro-life, when it comes to all of the things, these people are going to take all of your rights away, including Second Amendment," the president said, "because, you know, Catholics like their Second Amendment. So I saved the Second Amendment."
‘Jim Acosta is a fake reporter!’ Trump angrily denies reports that he ‘still doesn’t get’ coronavirus threat
CNN's Jim Acosta must have struck a nerve with President Donald Trump.
Trump angrily denied Acosta's reporting that some members of the president's coronavirus task force were alarmed that Trump kept trying to change the subject during Tuesday's meeting about the deadly pandemic, and sources familiar with the White House meeting feared he still doesn't understand the gravity of the situation.
“He still doesn’t get it,” the source said. “He does not get it.”
As some members of the task force tried to stress the dire nature of the situation to the president during the meeting, the source said Trump repeatedly attempted to change the subject.
