Donald Trump’s son-in-law and head pof most everything in the Oval Office, Jared Kushner, had at least three previously undisclosed contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States during and after the 2016 presidential campaign. The sources are at least 6 former U.S. officials.
The contacts include two phone calls between last year. By early this year, Kushner had become a focus of the FBI investigation to see if there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
FBI investigators came upon this as they began looking at former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s connections with Russian.
The Washington Post reported Friday that Russian envoy Sergei Kislyak Kislyak told his superiors that he and Kushner discussed setting up a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin.
The Post report, citing anonymous U.S. officials who were briefed on intelligence reports on intercepted Russian communications, said Kislyak told his superiors that Kushner proposed using Russian diplomatic facilities for their discussions, apparently to make them more difficult to monitor. The Post said Kislyak was reportedly "taken aback" by the suggestion.
A few things here.
Establishing a back channel is nothing new in U.S Foreign policy. It was done by Bobby Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis as well as by Henry Kissinger during the Nixon administration. It was a way for Foreign governments to avoid international conflict. It was done as a matter of policy. This appears to be a matter of either enrichment for the Trump empire and advantage for Mr. Trump in the election.
When the Russian Ambassador is even surprised at the request, you have to think that either Kushner was naïve, incompetent or arrogant.
White House lawyers say Kushner will be ready willing and able to tell his story. You can bet that somewhere in the War Room defense of these stories, the blame will be placed squarely on…………………….wait for it……….
1. The Media.
2. President Obama.
If it turns out that all of this was done to protect and expand Trump business interests, one has to wonder how greedy the Trump family is for more. MORE. MORE MORE!
It’s fine to be rich, to be a billionaire, but when you are not satisfied with what you have, we go from being aggressively rich to just plain greedy.
But that’s still to be determined.


Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail and after has given others permission to bully just like their hero. Trump has said that the media is the enemy of the people. No less an authoritarian than the late Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev never used that one! He even halted the Soviet government from using that phrase after he took over for Josef Stalin.
You cannot tell me that there isn’t a direct line between this behavior and that of the
TAHFQ who happens to be our President.
This is from Fox News: Greg Gianforte, the Republican candidate in Montana’s special congressional election, allegedly body slammed and punched Guardian political reporter Ben Jacobs during an interview in Bozeman, Mont., Wednesday.
The altercation between the reporter and Gianforte comes on the eve a special election to replace Secretary Ryan Zinke, who left Montana’s sole House seat vacant when he was President Donald Trump tapped him to lead the Department of the Interior.
Jacobs asked Gianforte about the Congressional Budget Office’s score of the House’s recently passed American Health Care Act, according to an audio recording of the altercation posted by The Guardian.
If this Tony Soprano wanna be gets can’t answer a question about something mundane as a CBO score, imagine if he were realty challenged.
But the voters of Montana followed suit and picked another little bully to kiss the President's rump. 
Trump's rump! 


Donald Trump called out the NATO allies for not paying their fair share. Other Presidents have done so in private. Trump most likely was advised to do so but he had to be the big mouth bully and put on a show. 
Calling out NATO publicly was one thing but Trump did not reaffirm what every President before him did. Affirm the "Supreme Guarantee" of "All for one and one for all".  That clause was only used once in the entire history of NATO and it was done to support the United States!
It should be remembered that ALL of the NATO allies stood behind America 1000% after 911. 
Trump, however doesn't remember it because he was too busy watching those thousands of Muslims cheering the attack from Jersey City that day! 

 We'll be taking a few siestas away from the Trump madness but look for our Memorial Day and JFK 100th anniversary editions this weekend.

All of the things you wrote about happened with 30 hours of time.
This is not FAKE news. This is stuff this guy does.
I'm sure you'd have rather just chilled for the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend!
