‘Nuts!’ Rachel Maddow goes off on Jared Kushner’s legal jeopardy and financial entanglements

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow took a big picture look at the legal liability facing senior White House advisor Jared Kushner, in the wake of new reports that Donald Trump’s son-in-law is under White House investigation.

Maddow praised Abbe Lowell, Kushner’s attorney, but noted that “it appears that his sort of lawyering firepower is matching his legal liability.”

“Mr. Kushner’s legal exposure in the Russia scandal started off deep, but they have been getting deeper ever since,” the host noted.

Maddow then listed, in detail, the timeline of revelations over Kushner’s legal jeopardy and financial entanglements.

“So to keep his Kremlin communication secret, he was offering that he would go to the Russian embassy to make his calls to the Kremlin,” Maddow reminded. “And yeah, Abbe Lovell is good, but that’s nuts! That’s nuts!”

“With Mr. Kushner, at least, it seems clear his lawyers are very much earning their pay,” Maddow concluded.

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
