Friday, December 7, Jared Kushner invited Matt Whitaker for a ride on Marine 1. Kushner is a subject of an investigation by Special Counsel Mueller, and Whitaker is the US Acting Attorney General in charge of that investigation. See any problem, any conflict with those two taking a flight together?
The flight apparently raises no suspicions for The Washington Post, The New York Times, or The Wall Street Journal. A search at 11 a.m. today shows no posts whatsoever in any of the three major national papers about the flight either today, Sunday, Saturday or Friday.
But AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton talking about the grandchildren on Clinton’s plane! Another story:
Loretta Lynch’s brief Tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton sent the GOP into a frenzy, so surely, there will be intense outrage that the son-in-law of a president, who is under investigation along with him, invited the AG heading the investigation to fly with him on Marine 1. https://t.co/VosxsU9Bwy

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley said at the time that Lynch should recuse herself for her chat with Bill Clinton. So far, no Republican has expressed any problem with Kushner and Whitaker’s joyride on Marine 1.
“…Grassley nor any other prominent Republican has criticized Whitaker’s latest meeting with Kushner and Trump or demanded that Whitaker recuse himself from contact with Mueller’s investigation.”
Maybe Kushner and Whitaker were talking about the grandkids on Marine 1. Oh, that’s right, they don’t have any.
