Jared Kushner completely botched the two major events that led to Russia probe: Chris Christie

Published

on

In his explosive new book that features scathing attacks on Jared Kushner, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie claims that President Donald Trump’s son-in-law completely misjudged two key events that led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

In snippets published by The Guardian, Christie claims that Kushner believed that Trump’s decision to fire former national security adviser Mike Flynn would be an easy way to end questions about whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.

In reality, Flynn would go on to plead guilty to lying to FBI agents about his talks with former Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak, and would then subsequently give Mueller substantive cooperation in the investigation.

Additionally, Christie claims that Kushner encouraged Trump to fire former FBI Director James Comey because he did not believe it would lead to “an enormous sh*t-storm” in Washington, when it actually was the single most crucial event that led to Mueller’s appointment as special prosecutor.

“The president was ill served by poor advice,” Christie writes of Kushner’s counsel on how to deal with the Russia investigation.

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
