Jared Kushner slurred slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi as a ‘terrorist’: Michael Wolff book

Published

Jared Kushner slurred slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi as a “terrorist” during an off-the-record conversation with a reporter, according to a new book.

Michael Wolff claims in his forthcoming book, “Siege,” that Kushner — a senior White House adviser and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law — denied Khashoggi was a journalist and excused his murder by Saudi intelligence, reported Vanity Fair.

“This guy was the link between certain factions in the royal family and Osama (bin Laden),” Kushner said, according to Wolff. “We know that. A journalist? Come on. This was a terrorist masquerading as a journalist.”

Kushner is close to Saudi crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman, who is believed to have ordered the brutal October 2018 murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who lived in the United States.

“I think he’s complicit in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi to the highest level possible,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) after meeting with CIA director Gina Haspel to discuss the slaying.

Khashoggi was from a prominent Saudi family and had once been the royal family’s spokesman, and he had interviewed bin Laden many times since the early 1980s.

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
