The Magnificent Bastard moves stealthily in on his objective . . . .
Washington (CNN)Special counsel Robert Mueller's interest in Jared Kushner has expanded beyond his contacts with Russia and now includes his efforts to secure financing for his company from foreign investors during the presidential transition, according to people familiar with the inquiry.This is the first indication that Mueller is exploring Kushner's discussions with potential non-Russian foreign investors, including in China.
US officials briefed on the probe had told CNN in May that points of focus related to Kushner, the White House senior adviser and son-in-law of President Donald Trump, included the Trump campaign's 2016 data analytics operation, his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and Kushner's own contacts with Russians.
It's hard work untangling byzantine webs of deceit and financial skullduggery - dontcha' know?
Jared Kushner's old man did prison time for white collar crime. It is not a stretch of the imagination to think like father, like son and all that - mkay? ... Also - apparently - The Wonder Twins, Jared and Ivanka, are up to the napes of their pasty white necks in debt with god knows how many foreign banks (can we say - National Security Risk?), and if you couple that with the known history of Kushner's covert activities with Russian contacts during the transition, The Gadfly would have been astounded if Mueller WASN'T sifting through his financial cat litter box.
Keep in mind too -- Kushner currently does not have a full security clearance and with the multitude of duties that he has taken on in his position in the White House, he has direct access to a whole helluva lot of information of a sensitive nature to U.S. and allied interests, in addition to national security material! He's a fucking national security risk compounded.
But The Gadfly has to tell you what is really bothering him folks -- of all the sociopaths in the Drumpf cadre of slithering creatures, Kushner is the one who unnerves The Gadfly the most - even more so than that adolescent version of Gollum, Stephen Miller.
There's something extra especially disturbing about Jared Kushner - in a shudder down the spine kind of way. There's something unsettling about his Damien/The Omen dead eyes and demeanor, and in that subtly sneering gaze of his that he puts on display whenever he's forced to interface with the public - you know - the one that never strays far from just outright, vengeful, vitriolic contempt for the world and the people in it? Stephen Miller is definitely creepy, but Jared Kushner is Michael Myers motherfucking scary and The Gadfly wouldn't trust him as far as he could throw him.
Anyhow, it'll be interesting to see how much Kushner is willing to sweat before crunch time forces his hand. Will he flip like Flynn or will he choose to go down with the sinking ship - the USS Drumpf?
Things are really beginning to happen fast now - if you have not noticed dear readers. So be prepared in the next few weeks for something fairly big to happen. Bigger than anything yet - quite likely.
Let's just hope it's not something bigger than what our already wounded democracy is able to handle and survive.
