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.”

A dive into the ‘deadliest wave of the opioid epidemic’ is the most frightening book of the year — and mandatory reading
First a spoiler alert: Among the multiple apocalyptic revelations in Ben Westhoff’s Fentanyl, Inc.: How Rogue Chemists Are Creating the Deadliest Wave of the Opioid Epidemic is sour news for all hard drug users, from casual weekend abusers to full-time cocaine cowboys. In light of developments presented in this epic book in gruesome and unprecedented fashion, putting questionable substances up your nose, in your veins, or even on your tongue is highly discouraged from here on in.
“Any drug where it’s a powder or a pill, you just can’t trust it,” Westhoff said in an interview about his latest project. “There can be fentanyl in anything … [Home drug-testing kits] are getting very sophisticated, and there are websites you can consult, but in terms of going to a party and someone offering you some blow or something like that, it’s over.”
