Whatever happened to that old saying, that “Cheaters never Prosper”?
What about perpetual Liars and BS-artists?
With all these recent disclosures about Jared Kushner — from sources other than Kushner — I think we are about to find out …
Jared Kushner Hiding Information About Russia Backdoor And WikiLeaks Contacts, Senators Say
The Senate lawmakers say they know of the existence of the documents from other witnesses in their investigation. Yet Kushner, who says he is cooperating, has not produced them.
“There are several documents that are known to exist but were not included in your production. For example, other parties have produced September 2016 email communications to Mr. Kushner concerning WikiLeaks, which Мr. Kushner then forwarded to another campaign official,” the letter reads. “Likewise, other parties have produced documents concerning а “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite” which Mr. Kushner also forwarded.”
‘Russian Backdoor Overture’ to Kushner Involved Close Putin Ally

[…] Kushner’s failure to disclose the records is just the latest example of his consistent evasiveness on all things Russia-related.
In July, he admitted to having met with four Russians during the campaign and transition, information he had not previously divulged when he applied for his high-level security clearance. The “foreign contacts” list on his disclosure form, initially left blank, was updated three times to include more than 100 names — just a slight oversight.
Kushner also reportedly testified under oath to congressional investigators that he had no knowledge of any campaign contacts with WikiLeaks, even though Donald Trump Jr. had sent him an email about his conversations with the organization. He failed to mention that he had attended an infamous June 2016 meeting set up by Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower, in which a Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, allegedly offered “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.
And then there was the secret back channel Kushner tried to set up with the Russian ambassador soon after President Trump’s victory.

I’m thinking that asking why Jared Kushner still has a security clearance may not capture all his misconduct. We really should be asking: Why is #Kushner still in the White House? https://t.co/YgOq7SpZoK

Kushner failed to disclose outreach from Putin ally to Trump campaign
by Ken Dilanian and Carol E. Lee, NBCNews.com — Nov 18, 2017
President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, failed to disclose what lawmakers called a “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite“ involving a banker who has been accused of links to Russian organized crime, three sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
An email chain described Aleksander Torshin, a former senator and deputy head of Russia’s central bank who is close to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as wanting Trump to attend an event on the sidelines of a National Rifle Association convention in Louisville, Kentucky, in May 2016, the sources said. The email also suggests Torshin was seeking to meet with a high-level Trump campaign official during the convention, and that he may have had a message for Trump from Putin, the sources said.
“Pass on this,” Kushner responded, according to a letter Lowell sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday evening. “A lot of people come claiming to carry messages. Very few we are able to verify. For now I think we decline such meetings.”
However, Torshin was seated with the candidate’s son, Donald Trump Jr., during a private dinner on the sidelines of a May 2016 NRA event […] Congressional investigators have no clear explanation for how that came to be, according to sources familiar with the matter.
Here’s a clue congressional investigators, as to how that “back-door meeting” with Torshin, eventually DID Happen anyways … despite Jared’s complaints about the “lack of results” from most such meetings …
It’s called not wanting to upset Putin. It’s called keeping your ‘financial opportunities’ open, in case you get “voted off the Island”, in this real-life episode of “Presidential Survivor” …
In brief — It’s called Collusion … if everytime Russian spokespersons come calling, you find a way to ‘take the meeting’ — and then totally forget about it later, when you’re under Oath, or under Penalty of Law.
Yes indeed Jared Kushner has a Transparency problem, when it comes to telling the truth, about his many, many, many undisclosed/conveniently-forgotten Russian contacts … most of which should be Under Penalty of Law (… in any other Administration, that is).
May the Mueller Indictment Hammer be swift. Afterall, it’s not like Jared doesn’t deserve it.
