Here’s why Jared and Ivanka have gone into hiding

Published

on

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace raised a question many have been asking on her show “Deadline: White House” Tuesday afternoon: Whatever happened to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner?

President Donald Trump’s oldest daughter and son-in-law used to be viewed as top influencers in the White House, and they garnered widespread attention and interest in political media. In recent weeks and months, though, they appear to have faded from the scene.

“The word I hear is that the kids have gone underground,” Wallace said. “What do you hear about what Jared and Ivanka are up to?”

“Jared and Ivanka, Jared in particular, have kept a lower profile in recent months, particularly since Kushner had his security clearance downgraded,” Jonathan Lemire, an Associated Press reporter, told Wallace. “There remains concern in the White House, outside among Trump allies, from all of our reporting, about what Kushner’s exposure could be here.”

He noted that special counsel Robert Mueller, who is in charge of the investigation examining potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election, is likely very interested in a number of meetings and interactions Kushner is believed to have had with foreign leaders and business moguls, especially with regard to his troubled property at 666 5th Ave in Manhattan.

“That’s certainly something that Bob Mueller would pay attention to,” Lemire said.

In a statement posted to Twitter this Friday, the daughter of Texas GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert said that her father contracted the coronavirus because he chose to ignore medical expertise.

“The advice of medical experts shouldn’t be politicized,” her statement read. “My father ignored medical expertise and now he has COVID.”

“It’s not worth following a president who has no remorse for leading his followers to an early grave,” she added.

Doctors fear Trump will lie about a vaccine to win the election

Published

on

There is a fear among many that the so-called "October Surprise" won't be another international scandal at the White House, but President Donald Trump announcing a vaccine, whether there is one or not.

Washington Post political columnist Greg Sargent explained in his Monday column that scientists are issuing a warning in a series of New York Times interviews. Either Trump will like and announce a vaccine that isn't ready or he'll rush the process to ensure a vaccine is ready, whether it is or not. Some of the scientists even work for the American government and have updated information on the status of a vaccine.

GOP strategists fear a Kris Kobach nomination could cost Republicans greatly: ‘The Senate majority runs through Kansas’

Published

on

In Kansas’ Republican senatorial primary, voters will choose between former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Rep. Roger Marshall — who some GOP strategists believe is by far the more electable of the two. And according to Politico’s James Arkin, one of the prominent Republicans who is sounding the alarm is Kevin McLaughlin, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Although Kobach and Marshall are both hard-right politically, Kobach is more extreme — so extreme that even in deep red Kansas, he lost a gubernatorial race to a centrist Democrat in the 2018 midterms. That Democrat, Laura Kelly, is now governor of Kansas, where Kobach was a leading promoter of the racist “birther” conspiracy theory during the 2010s.
