Jared Kushner’s ‘lie’ about not speaking to Trump about his clearance ‘will come back to haunt him’: biographer

Published

Jared Kushner made a critical error in his weekend interview with Axios, his biographer explained on MSNBC.

Vicky Ward, author of the 2019 book Kushner, Inc: Greed. Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, was interviewed by “The Beat” anchor Ari Melber on Monday.

The host played a clip of the interview where Kushner repeatedly denies have discussed his security clearance with his father-in-law, President Donald Trump.

“I have to tell you that I went back to some of my sources for Kushner, Inc. this afternoon to ask what they thought of Jared’s interview, and the line that they think will come back to haunt him is the flat-out denial about not talking to his father-in-law about the security clearance,” Ward said.

“Because?” Melber asked.

“Because it’s not possible,” Ward replied.

“Which makes it a?” Melber asked.

“A lie,” she answered.

“His nickname is ‘The Secretary of Everything.’ The story about him not having a security clearance was front-page news for weeks and weeks and weeks in 2018. As we know, he only got a security clearance because the president intervened. The chance that they did not discuss that — according to my resources who are right — there is nil,” Ward explained.

CNN panel mocks the White House for promoting a photo of Trump looking ‘subservient’ to Pelosi

Published

The White House posted a series of photos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Wednesday after their meeting, showing Pelosi being the only person in the room literally standing up to President Donald Trump. It was an image that baffled the mind of at least one CNN panelist as to why the Trump people would be promoting Pelosi.

According to reports from those who were in the room, the president flew off the handle after Pelosi quipped that it seems all roads lead back to Russia for this president. It was at that point that Trump called Pelosi a "third-grade politician," though presumably, he meant "third-rate," and the meeting broke apart.

Max Boot calls BS on Republicans for trying to claim Syria is Nancy Pelosi’s fault because of impeachment

President Donald Trump is conducting foreign policy like a 1980s television character, according to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot.

In a panel discussion about the letter Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, Boot mocked Republicans for suddenly trying to claim that Trump's withdrawal from Syria was Speaker Nancy Pelosi's fault because of impeachment. It is unclear if Republicans are confessing the president is too distracted by impeachment to be making foreign policy decisions or if they are blaming Pelosi for military decisions.

"I mean there's a lot of really lame Republican talking points out there, Don," Boot said to CNN host Don Lemon. "But to suggest, as Rep. Liz Cheney and others have done that somehow Trump's inexplicable decision to give the Turks the green light to invade Syria — that was somehow the fault of Nancy Pelosi because of the impeachment process? What?"

Published

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw in Syria in less than 24 hours put American troops at risk as they were being fired on by Turkey. However, according to the Wall Street Journal , the military was also forced to bomb our own military base.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been critical of Trump's decisions in the past months, pointed out the factoid in a tweet Wednesday evening, asking, "Is this the America you grew up believing in?"

"On Wednesday, the U.S. military said two F-15E jet fighters carried out an airstrike to destroy an ammunition-storage facility, latrines, tents and other parts of the Syria headquarters of the American campaign to destroy Islamic State after pulling its forces from the base," reported The Journal.
