    Not looking good for Kushner

    MSNBC analyst reveals why Kushner may face the same fate as Paul Manafort

    The editor-at-large for CNBC debunked the latest defenses coming from the White House during a Saturday appearance with Alex Witt on MSNBC.

    “What do the recent developments tell you about how [Robert] Mueller is putting all the pieces together in this puzzle?” Witt asked John Harwood.

    “Well Alex, we don’t know as a legal matter about collusion, but what we do know is that you had a campaign chairman who had been indirectly on Russia’s payroll through his work for Yanukovych in Ukraine. We know that the Trump organization itself has said that it was dependent on Russian money itself before the campaign started. We’ve got the National Security Adviser to the president having pled guilty and cooperating, and we have a president who has declined to implement sanctions that Congress passed against Russia, who has consistently declined to criticize Russia,” Harwood noted. “And we know that Russian hacking helped him win the election.”

    “So the pieces are pretty clear that the Russians helped Donald Trump; Donald Trump is pursuing policies favorable to Russia,” Harwood continued. “There’s a steadily increasing amount of pressure, as Jill [Colvin] was just saying, that renders what the White House is saying as nonsense.”

    The panel also discussed White House senior advisor Jared Kushner’s inability to get a permanent security clearance.

    “Alex, I want to say that the common thread here that relates to the previous conversation is financial distress. Jared Kushner and his family company have a tremendous liability for building in New York and distress makes you vulnerable to pressure from people abroad,” Harwood continued.

    “You mean like blackmail? Witt asked. “That’s what they’re worried about?”

    “Yes, exactly so,” Harwood answered.

    “His situation is very problematic, not just as a matter of security clearance for working in the White House,” Harwood explained, “but we don’t know where Robert Mueller is going to go with respect to Jared Kushner and his finances.”
    New clearance report shows why Trump may be forced to fire Jared Kushner

    As it turns out, Jared Kushner may be on his way out the door at the White House, and all because of something he has no control of. According to a Thursday report from CNN, Kushner's security clearance - something that's legally required in order to work in the West Wing - isn't just being held up by the nearly 40 revisions he's entered for his paperwork due to irregularities in financial and conflict of interest disclosures.
    It's actually Robert Mueller's investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election, as well as money laundering, tax evasion, and a host of other crimes connected through various people to the Trump campaign, that's preventing Kushner's clearance from being finalized.

    What's worse for the Trump-in-law is that he can't be cleared until the investigation is wrapped up, according to the report.

    He's established his close connection to Trump, now he will be free to go out there and do some influence peddling and cash-in on all the hard "work" he has done for the American people. (the .1%)

    Kushner shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the WH. He's a prime suspect in a conspiracy against his country. A traitor and , at the very least, a prime target to be blackmailed. While Trump is such a coward he's going to try to implicate Kelly in his corruption. Kelly should resign. I heard a wild rumor he's staying because he's actually working for Mueller and/or the FBI. Which is just crazy enough of a rumor to be true in this administration.
