‘Simply outrageous’: Retired four-star general blasts Kushner as a ‘huge threat to rational foreign policy’

Published

on

Retired four-star Army General Barry McCaffrey slammed White House senior advisor Jared Kushner after breaking news that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bragged about having Kushner “in his pocket” during a Wednesday appearance on All In with Chris Hayes.

“What’s your reaction?” Hayes asked.

“Putting Jared Kushner — a 30-something person with no foreign policy experience or defense policy experience — as a leading representative of the United States is simply outrageous,” McCaffrey charged. “So reading out the State Department and having one-on-one contact with Jared Kushner, by phone and in person, is a huge threat to a rational policy making process.”

“It has no precedent, in my view, in American government,” he added.

“If were the president’s lawyer, I would say, if you think they have video on you, he’d better get it out now,” McCaffrey continued. “Putin will stick it to him prior to the next election or after he leaves office.”

Law enforcement files discredit Brian Kemp’s accusation that Democrats tried to hack the Georgia election

Published

on

It was a stunning accusation: Two days before the 2018 election for Georgia governor, Republican Brian Kemp used his power as secretary of state to open an investigation into what he called a “failed hacking attempt” of voter registration systems involving the Democratic Party.

But newly released case files from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation reveal that there was no such hacking attempt.

The evidence from the closed investigation indicates that Kemp’s office mistook planned security tests and a warning about potential election security holes for malicious hacking.

Kemp then wrongly accused his political opponents just before Election Day — a high-profile salvo that drew national media attention in one of the most closely watched races of 2018.
