Jared Kushner Under FBI Scrutiny in Trump Russia Probe

It’s sad to contemplate the idea that Jared Kushner is a mole, planted inside the Trump family in order to convert the Trump real estate empire into a Jewish empire over time. There is evidence that Kushner’s father is a Mossad asset and a member of the Jewish Mafia.

Does Kushner really love Ivanka or is he faking it out of greed via Jewish Mafia plot?

Whatever, the alt-right wants to see Kushner and Ivanka gone from the White House. Thursday’s news that Jared is a person of interest in the Congressional Russian probes adds urgency to the desire to see Kushner banished.

NBC News

Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and one of his senior advisers, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple U.S. officials told NBC News.

Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said. That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him.

The FBI’s scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau’s sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but the Trump family circle. The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a “person of interest,” but did not name the person. The term “person of interest” has no legal meaning.

The officials said Kushner is in a different category from former Trump aides Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, who are formally considered subjects of the investigation. According to the Justice Department’s U.S. Attorneys’ Manual, “A ‘subject’ of an investigation is a person whose conduct is within the scope of the grand jury’s investigation.”

Records of both Manafort and Flynn have been demanded by grand jury subpoenas, NBC News has reported.

It is not known whether Kushner has received any records requests from federal investigators.

Also unclear is what precisely about Kushner’s activities has drawn the FBI’s interest as it investigates whether Trump associates coordinated with the Russian campaign to interfere in the election. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is now leading the probe as a special counsel.

Kushner met at least once in December with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and he also met last year with a Russian banker, Sergey Gorkov.

“Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings,” Kushner’s lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, told NBC News. “He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.”

Kushner isn’t going to prison. The Deep State objective is to make sure that Trump gets nothing accomplished, so that the final solution can be imposed on America when the next president takes over in 2020.

Meanwhile the Daily Caller reports that Steve Bannon had warned Trump about Kushner.

The New York Times reported early last month that Bannon “told confidants that he believes Mr. Kushner’s contact with Russians, and his expected testimony before Congress on the subject, will become a major distraction for the White House.”

Bannon’s words of caution came as he and Kushner were locked in an internal White House power struggle, which Kushner ended up winning as Bannon saw his role diminished.

Breaking! Sweden Drops Rape Investigation of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange

Time

(STOCKHOLM) — Sweden’s top prosecutor said Friday she is dropping an investigation into a rape claim against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after almost seven years.

The Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement Friday that Marianne Ny “has decided to discontinue the investigation.”

Assange took refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in London in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden to answer questions about sex-crime allegations from two women. He has been there ever since, fearing that if he is arrested he might ultimately be extradited to the United States. Last month, President Donald Trump said he would support any decision by the Justice Department to charge Assange.

WikiLeaks tweeted after the Swedish announcement: “UK refuses to confirm or deny whether it has already received a US extradition warrant for Julian Assange. Focus now moves to UK,”

Friday’s announcement means Assange is no longer under any investigation in Sweden. But the Metropolitan Police said Assange is still subject to arrest for the “much less serious offense” of jumping bail in 2012.

The 45-year-old Australian computer hacker was wanted in Sweden for questioning over a rape allegation stemming from a 2010 visit.

“This is a total victory for Julian Assange. He is now free to leave the embassy when he wants. We have won the Assange case. He is of course happy and relieved. He has been critical that it has lasted that long,” Per E Samuelsson, his lawyer in Sweden, told Swedish Radio. Samuelsson was not immediately available for comments.

Assange still can’t leave the Ecuadorian embassy without being arrested:

Assange supporters fear that he will be extradited to the U.S. and put on trial.

Scholar: Assault on Trump is greatest threat to our country

Some highly effective comments defending President Trump by Russian expert Professor Stephen Cohen in a Tuesday night appearance with Tucker Carlson.

Real Clear Politics

NYU and Princeton professor of Russian studies Stephen Cohen told FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tuesday night that the baseless accusations of treason against President Trump in the media have become a security threat to the U.S. and could potentially damage any hope of a diplomatic rapprochement, and alliance against Islamic terrorism, with Russia.

When asked if the president could have given unauthorized information to the Russians, Cohen said: “No.”

“Nor have I in all these decades ever heard an elected memnber of Congress say that we should have no relations with the Russians at all,” he explained. “Presumably that would also include nuclear weapons control?”

“When I see, I guess it was a Democrat… asking what are the Russians doing in the White House anyway? Well they’re dealing with President Trump over the national security of our nation. What’s at stake here is a proposal by Putin of Russia and Trump of America to join hands in an alliance against international terrorism. And if you had asked me a few days ago: What is the #1 threat to the United States today, I would have said international terrorism. I don’t know if you agree, it is certainly up there.”

“Today, I would say it is this assault on President Trump. It has been going on a year,” he said.

Not one shred of evidence of this “Russian collusion” so far. None. Let’s prosecute the crimes for which we do have evidence: Clinton treason; DNC fraud; Clinton influence-peddling; Clinton perjury; Clinton team perjury; Clinton cronies’ obstruction of justice.

First credible ideology I have heard of WHY Trump is being lied about. And it is AMAZING how may people buy into the mass media propaganda spreading the lies and hate mongering. Smart Man Prof. Stephen Cohen. Very Smart Man. People would do well and heed what he has to say.

Trump still has my support,100%

CNN, NY Times, WaPo—- terrorist groups.

Democrats screwed everyone in the election, now their trying to undermine this country with obstruction in congress. They do not care about the American people, they only want regain power and maybe win an election. If a person cannot see this you’re very narrow minded.

Fk these liberals and democrats!. I am sick of it!. If they want civil war, then let’s give it to them!!!. Let’s kick their ass and get it over with!. The democrats need to be taken down… How dare them accuse our own President of treason

The assault on President Trump is all caused by criminal traitor’s who hate America and the scumbag MSM who cover up the criminal activity and doesn’t give a f*ck about the good American people.

These Leaks are a huge risk to our national security.. I can’t believe that the Left can jeopardize the safety of our Country just so they can attempt to discredit President Trump.. The timing is convenient.. Jusr before Trumps 3 Religion Tour to the Middle East .. Coincidence ? I don’t think so .

The MSM has defined itself as a National Security Threat. How do we stop the Orwellian NewSpeak Media?

The Trump-haters wanted whom, the criminal incompetent Clinton who wants an open border and WWIII? Big Government Bernie who was also for open border? Obama for catch-and-release was against national sovereignty too and I feel should have been impeached on that basis (traitor to the U.S.).

The Three Headed Snake Out to Get Trump

CLAPPER, BRENNAN, AND COMEY.

Fired FBI Director James Comey had a job to do, according to the conspiracy theory outlined here. Comey was to undercut BOTH Trump and Hillary Clinton so that the Deep State’s man would ascend to the presidency. Read the excerpt if you have an interest in knowing who the Deep State wants as the president. I’ve bolded his name and inserted a photo of him. You’ll recognize him.

Comey is no longer with the FBI but have no doubt that his loyalists are still there, still trying to remove President Trump “for the good of the country.” Likewise, other Deep State loyalists are embedded in every federal agency, ready to do whatever it takes to see Trump tossed out of office on his ear.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell


And what if there really is a conspiracy against Donald Trump being orchestrated within the various national security agencies that are part of the United States government? The president has been complaining for months about damaging leaks emanating from the intelligence community and the failure of Congress to pay any attention to the illegal dissemination of classified information. It is quite possible that Trump has become aware that there is actually something going on and that something just might be a conspiracy to delegitimize and somehow remove him from office.

Antiwhite Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice Fingered as Behind Trump Administration Unmasking

UNPINNED 4/3. PINNED TO THE TOP OF THE HOMEPAGE APRIL 3, 2017. SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWEST POSTS.

Mike Cernovich, that alt-light Deploraball self-described journalist, has named Susan Rice as the Obama administration official behind the unmasking of General Mike Flynn. She was Obama’s National Security Adviser. She’s also known for saying that there are too many whites working in national security.

Mike Cernovich has been wrong before. Thus, until confirmation comes from a more reliable source, this news should be viewed as tentative.

Cernovich published the following on Medium, which I believe is a self-publishing platform. Somebody help me with that if you know for sure.

Medium

Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.

The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.

Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes.

“Unmasking” is the process of identifying individuals whose communications were caught in the dragnet of intelligence gathering. While conducting investigations into terrorism and other related crimes, intelligence analysts incidentally capture conversations about parties not subject to the search warrant. The identities of individuals who are not under investigation are kept confidential, for legal and moral reasons.

Under President Obama, the unmasking rules were changed. Circa originally reported:

As his presidency drew to a close, Barack Obama’s top aides routinely reviewed intelligence reports gleaned from the National Security Agency’s incidental intercepts of Americans abroad, taking advantage of rules their boss relaxed starting in 2011 to help the government better fight terrorism, espionage by foreign enemies and hacking threats, Circa has learned.

Three people close to President Obama, including his “fall guy” for Benghazi (Susan Rice), had authorization to unmask.

Among those cleared to request and consume unmasked NSA-based intelligence reports about U.S. citizens were Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice, his CIA Director John Brennan and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Not even mainstream outlets denied that some Trump officials had been spied on, with the NY Times reporting:

WASHINGTON — A pair of White House officials helped provide Representative Devin Nunes of California, a Republican and the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, with the intelligence reports that showed that President Trump and his associates were incidentally swept up in foreign surveillance by American spy agencies.

According to WaPo, there were three sources for the reports, with Michael Ellis ultimately being blamed by WaPo and AP.

What’s striking about the Times story is the spin it took. Trump had previously claimed he had been “wire tapped” (quotation marks in his original Tweet), leading to media screams that he prove it. The Times’ own reporting proves that President Trump and his associates were spied on.

The Times, rather than admit Trump had been vindicated, instead focused its attention on the question of who leaked the reports to Nunes:

Since disclosing the existence of the intelligence reports, Mr. Nunes has refused to identify his sources, saying he needed to protect them so others would feel safe going to the committee with sensitive information. In his public comments, he has described his sources as whistle-blowers trying to expose wrongdoing at great risk to themselves.

Since when did journalists attempt to unmask sources? The Times, WaPo, and other outlets rely on anonymous sources in nearly every article about national security. It’s clear they have an agenda — that agenda is not telling the truth.

This reporter has been informed that Maggie Haberman has had this story about Susan Rice for at least 48 hours, and has chosen to sit on it in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama.

Twitter immediately reacted, and in some cases overreacted.

The talk of people going to jail, including Susan Rice and Obama is somewhat foolish. We know that Hillary Clinton was too big to jail. Susan Rice is a dedicated true believer in the leftist cause. She would never implicate Obama in anything. She might take a jail term for him, but it’s not at all clear that it can be proven beyond all reasonable doubt that she committed a crime.

This is a developing story. More later as events warrant.

Press fired up as Comey rejects Trump wiretap claim, offers no evidence on Russia probe

FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY APPEARING STONE FACED DURING CONGRESSIONAL HEARING.

Fox News’ Howard Kurtz offers an antidote to the MSM headlines designed to delegitimize President Donald Trump.

This post is a companion to today’s earlier post on Judge Andrew Napolitano and the post on Sputnik News’ deconstruction of FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before Congress yesterday about Russian spying.

Fox News

James Comey didn’t want to say much yesterday on Capitol Hill, but for President Trump’s opponents, he said enough.

House Republicans wanted to focus on illegal leaks of classified information, scoring some points on that issue.

And all this managed to overshadow the first day of Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, a reflection of the depth of this Washington obsession.

Eight words from the FBI director—“I have no information to support those tweets”—knocked down the most controversial claim of Trump’s presidency.

Comey also said a president has no power to order a wiretap, which dismisses the Trump charge that Barack Obama had set the alleged wiretap in motion.

By confirming that there is an FBI probe of contacts between Trump associates and Russia—which we already knew—Comey appeared to give ammunition to the president’s opponents. It wasn’t a “bombshell,” as some headlines had it, but it’s now official.

In other news that we already knew, Comey said the Russians wanted to damage Hillary Clinton and thereby help the Trump campaign. And Clinton people are upset that the Trump/Russia probe remained secret while Comey talked about reopening the Hillary email inquiry in late October.

But there is more to the story and the way it is being covered.

The Intelligence Committtee hearing was highly partisan, with Democrats asking Comey all kinds of questions, many based on news reports, that he insisted he could not answer. They were obviously trying to get it all on the public record and raise suspicions for the viewing audience.

As for the Republicans, they kept pressing, but didn’t get anywhere, for information on how Michael Flynn’s name was leaked over the contacts with Russia’s ambassador that led to his firing for not being truthful.

This dovetailed with some early-morning tweets from Trump, who said the Democrats “made up and pushed the Russia story” and “the real story that Congress, the FBI and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!”

So now the media have two related situations in which there is no evidence of wrongdoing.

The one making big headlines, more than two weeks after Trump’s allegations, is that the FBI has nothing to support the notion that Obama directed some kind of 2016 surveillance against Trump.

The other, which has gotten little traction in the press, is that the FBI has found no evidence of improper collusion between the president or his associates and Moscow.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made this argument to me in a “Media Buzz” interview, saying the press is pushing a “false narrative” by not equally emphasizing the lack of evidence in the Russia probe. Of course, the White House press secretary wanted to focus on the Russian part of the equation while deferring to the intelligence panels on the wiretap claims that his boss has been unable to substantiate.

Now critics can say that the reason there is no evidence of collusion between Trump World and the Putin government is that Comey remains tight-lipped about an ongoing investigation. But in this leaky environment, it’s hard to imagine that damaging material, if it existed, wouldn’t have made its way into the press.

Based on Comey’s testimony, this thing could drag on for months. But the media should apply the same standards to both questions: Make no damaging assumptions unless there is proof.

And then there was this, in mid-afternoon: Gorsuch delivered his opening statement to a Senate committee, which was carried by Fox, while CNN and MSNBC stuck with the Comey hearing. Two big stories, no question, but hard to imagine that the opening day for a Supreme Court nominee wasn’t the day’s headline grabber.

White House Denies National Guard Immigration Force as (((Schumer))) Denounces Trump for Enforcing the Law

From where I sit near the Texas-Mexico border, it’s too bad that 100,000 National Guardsmen are not being mobilized to bring the chaos under control.

Breitbart

The White House is flatly denying media reports that the Trump Administration is considering using national guard troops as immigration officers to round up illegal aliens.

“There is no effort at all to round up, to utilize the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said of the report, The Hill reported. “That is 100% not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this.”

Spicer continued, “I don’t know what could potentially be out there, but I know that there is no effort to do what is potentially suggested.”

The Associated Press reported on a leaked “draft memo” claiming that up to 100,000 National Guard troops could be used to round up unauthorized immigration. The AP reported the plan would round up illegal aliens living nowhere near the Mexican border. The headline appears to falsely claim “Trump weighs mobilizing Nat Guard for immigration roundups.”

Department of Homeland Security Spokesman David Lapan responded to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas stating, “The Department is not considering mobilizing the National Guard for immigration enforcement.”

The AP report claims:

Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal — California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas — but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to those four — Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Governors in the 11 states would have a choice whether to have their guard troops participate, according to the memo, written by U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general.

While National Guard personnel have been used to assist with immigration-related missions on the U.S.-Mexico border before, they have never been used as broadly or as far north.

The memo is addressed to the then-acting heads of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. It would serve as guidance to implement the wide-ranging executive order on immigration and border security that President Donald Trump signed Jan. 25. Such memos are routinely issued to supplement executive orders.

The AP claims the 18-page January 25 “draft memo,” addressed to Obama holdovers in the CBP, calls for the troops to “perform the functions of an immigration officer in relation to the investigation, apprehension, and detention of aliens in the United States.”

Breitbart Texas reached out to Texas Governor Greg Abbott for comment on the alleged plans. A response was not immediately available. The governors of Arizona, Utah, Nevada, California, Colorado, Oklahoma, Oregon and New Mexico told the AP they were unaware of the memo.

CHARLES SCHUMER.

The Hill

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) blasted a report that the Trump administration is considering using the National Guard to round up undocumented immigrants for deportation, a claim that the White House has denied.

“That’s despicable,” Schumer told reporters during a press conference on Scott Pruitt’s nomination to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. “That would be one of the most un-American things that would happen in the last century.”

He added: “I just hope it’s not true.”

Twitter is a leftist sewer but a few sane conservatives have survived the purges.

Mike Cernovich has Tweeted that the report was a deliberate fabrication to expose the White House leakers. I’m not including that Tweet above because Cernovich has been wrong over and over and over again. I think he makes up stuff to inflate his importance.

You can judge for yourself:
