Published

Brennan said that he was concerned that the Trump 2016 campaign’s interactions with Russians had placed it on a “treasonous path” and has tried to get Republicans in Congress to openly denounce Russian interference in the 2016 election. They refused.

Scathing column rips Jared Kushner for being a dangerous ‘doofus’ over his coronavirus bungling

Published

on

Writing in The Guardian this Tuesday, Arwa Mahdawi contends that although some like to characterize Jared Kushner as a "supervillain," he lack the charisma for such a title. But in many way, his lack of charisma is one of his greatest strengths, because it has helped him fly under the radar.
