    Jared Kushner, a Trump In-Law and Adviser, Chases a Chinese Deal

    By SUSANNE CRAIG, JO BECKER and JESSE DRUCKERJAN. 7, 2017

    On the night of Nov. 16, a group of executives gathered in a private dining room of the restaurant La Chine at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Midtown Manhattan. The table was laden with Chinese delicacies and $2,100 bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild. At one end sat Wu Xiaohui, the chairman of the Waldorf’s owner, Anbang Insurance Group, a Chinese financial behemoth with estimated assets of $285 billion and an ownership structure shrouded in mystery. Close by sat Jared Kushner, a major New York real estate investor whose father-in-law, Donald J. Trump, had just been elected president of the United States.

    It was a mutually auspicious moment.

    Mr. Wu and Mr. Kushner — who is married to Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and is one of his closest advisers — were nearing agreement on a joint venture in Manhattan: the redevelopment of 666 Fifth Avenue, the fading crown jewel of the Kushner family real-estate empire. Anbang, which has close ties to the Chinese state, has seen its aggressive efforts to buy up hotels in the United States slowed amid concerns raised by Obama administration officials who review foreign investments for national security risk.

    TICK TOCK, Trump is so worried about having his Presidency delegitimized by admitting the Russians did try to influence the election in his favor that he and his administration are going to miss covering up all the details they can be caught in for legal impeachment. THESE GUYS ARE NOT AS SMART AS THE CLINTONS AND WILL BE CAUGHT (MARK MY WORDS) AND IT WILL BE FOR MORE THAN JUST A BLOW JOB.

    Why didn't you care when Obama tried to buy the election in Israel?

    Kind of hypocritical don't you think?

    What do I give a sh_t about the elections in Israel even if he did try to buy them? This affects me how?
    You seem to think that if the US does this sort of thing to other countries that it is far play in the US. NOT….I don't think it's right in either case but why would I even care what they do unless it affects something I am directly involved in? I didn't look into Israel's election and I don't care to look into it NOW AT THIS LATE STAGE. The issue here is the US presidential election and the Russians DID try to influence it. Was Trump's results rigged NO. Did some American voters get influenced by the RUSSIAN PROPOGANDA that would not have otherwise out into the public arena? We don't know for sure one way or the other if the influence was what pushed him over the winning mark or not. The fact is that a foreign power did interfere and that should bother everyone. Should we not accept the results that Trump won? NO WE SHOULD ACCEPT HE WON !!!! EVEN IF HE DID with foreign influence BECAUSE IT WOULD BE DISASTROUS FROM A NATIONAL STANDPOINT TO REVOLT AT THIS TIME. IN THE END ISN'T RUSSIA GETTING IT'S WAY HERE BY JUST SEWING THE SEEDS OF DOUBT AND TRUMP FANNING THOSE FLAMES BY NOT DENOUNCING RUSSIA OUTRIGHT. ALL HE HAS TO SAY IS THAT ANY INTERFERENCE IN THE SLIGHTEST BY OUTSIDERS IN ANY ELECTION WILL BE LOOKED AT AS AN ACT OF WAR (MAYBE A LITTLE LESS HARSH THAN THAT) AND LET RUSSIA SH_T THEIR PANTS AND NOT DO IT AGAIN!!!!

    It would only help Trump to take a strong stand against Russia if only to show he is not a puppet to Putin which is what he looks like right now!!!! President Obama has done all he can to get Trump to take a stand against Putin and Trump has avoided doing it which makes me think even more than Trump is in the pocket of Russia perhaps even holding the financial strings that keep Trump operating in business.

    So election tampering is fine when we do it to other nations but when someone does it to us that is wrong.

    Oh My God.

    Yepper, except even in THE HILL their ONLY sources are RW, Republicans, Netanyahu pollsters, FOX--how come? How come there wasn't other sources that were quoted that 'OBAMA' gave money to upset Netanyahu? Obama was running a Palestinian ACORN--isn't that what FOX said?

    At the risk of being RADICAL, Palestinians or moderate Israelis--there have to be some--aren't allowed to be taught 'get out the vote' processes and procedures? You know help in running a democratic election?? We shouldn't be able TO teach them if they come to us and ask? I thought Israel was a DEMOCRACY!! Silly me!

    And now RUSSIA puts its thumb on our SCALE! So this is pay back??

    Mr. Kushner played a pivotal role in persuading Mr. Trump, who made the Wall Street powerhouse Goldman Sachs a bête noire of his presidential campaign, to appoint the firm’s president, Gary D. Cohn, as his chief economic adviser, according to several people involved in the transition. (Like a number of people interviewed for this article, they spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss internal matters.) Goldman Sachs has lent the Kushner Companies money and is an investor in a real estate technology company co-founded by Mr. Kushner and his brother.

    Mr. Trump has said that his son-in-law, an Orthodox Jew, will play a central role in dealings with Israel, describing him as so talented that he could help “do peace in the Middle East.” Mr. Kushner’s company has received multiple loans from Israel’s largest bank, Bank Hapoalim. The incoming Trump administration will inherit a Justice Department investigation into allegations that the bank helped wealthy Americans evade taxes.
    I don't see how it is possible for these people to put aside acting in their personal interests, and act in the best interest of the United States when there is potential conflict, or know the difference.

    I agree with you, and give them 13 months before impeachment becomes a serious issue.

    Oh, after netanyahu and the republican's united performance in an attempt to trash the Iran deal, it was fair play.
