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.
