‘No big deal!’: CNN panel mocks Kushner for whitewashing Russian interference
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House advisor Jared Kushner appeared at a forum in New York, where he gave a wide-ranging interview about the Mueller report and Russian meddling in the election.
Kushner was dismissive of Russian efforts to influence the election, essentially dismissing it as no big deal.
CNN’s The Lead Tuesday had a flummoxed panel of experts who couldn’t believe Kushner would whitewash the Mueller probe.
“Jared is basically saying, ‘Eh, that’s nothing. If they take down our light grid or our energy grid, no big deal, it’s just Facebook,” Finney joked.
“That’s what it makes it sound like!”
“When Jared Kushner is downplaying it like that he looks ridiculous,” host Brianna Keilor said.
