Howard Dean: ‘Jared Kushner will be indicted for money laundering’ and ‘the next step will be Trump family’

Published

on

Former Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean (D-VT) predicted on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner will be indicted for money laundering as a part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

After NBC News reported that Mueller has enough evidence to charge former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his son, Trump National Diversity Coalition Director Bruce Levell told MSNBC that he was not concerned about the news.

“I’m totally confident. You know, I believe in the president,” Levell insisted. “I think this whole Russia thing is a waste of time unfortunately. We’ll see how that plays itself out. We’ve moved on.”

Dean, however, had a different take on the news that Flynn and his son could face jail time.

“We believe we may well have a criminal in the White House,” Dean lamented as Levell groaned. “Certainly, he has a special interest in the Trump family and their investments. And we think there is substantial likelihood that he has laundered money. That’s what his associates have been charged with.”

“You have a prosecutor [in Special Counsel Robert Mueller] who I think everybody on the Republican and Democratic side believes in a straight shooter,” the former Vermont governor continued. “He is playing a very serious hand here. He’s working his way up from the bottom as he’s going to continue to do.”

Dean added: “I think you’re going to eventually see either the Flynns are going to plead guilty or… cooperate for some leniency.”

According to Dean, “the next step is going to be the Trump family itself.”

“There’s a good likelihood Jaren Kushner will be indicted for money laundering,” he stated. “And then we’re going to have to see how far the Russian involvement goes.”

“It appears to me what Bob Mueller is investigating is whether the president of the United States engaged with a foreign power in order to get where he got. That’s a very serious matter for this country.”

House Homeland Security chairman directs sergeant at arms to ‘take action’ against Republicans who raided SCIF

Published

On Wednesday, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) sent a letter to the Congressional sergeant at arms, Paul Irving, asking him to "take action" against the gang of House Republicans who invaded the classified information facility during an impeachment hearing.

"This unprecedented breach of security raises serious concerns for Committee Chairmen, including me, responsible for maintaining SCIFs," wrote Thompson. "As such, I am requesting you take action with respect to the Members involved in the breach. More broadly, I urge you to take House-wide action to remind all Members about the dangers of such reckless action and the potential national security risks of such behavior."

Trump bizarrely tells supporters he’s going to build a border wall in Colorado

Published

on

On Wednesday, at the Shale Insight Conference in Pittsburgh, President Donald Trump once again touted his as-yet-nonexistent border wall. And he strangely claimed that it was getting built in Colorado — a state that is nowhere near the Mexican border.

"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn't have it," said Trump. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."
