Son-in-law and Senior advisor to President Trump, Jared Kushner has emphasized on Monday, that he “hadn’t colluded or know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded with any foreign government“. This comes after a January 2017 assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) stated that Russian leadership preferred presidential candidate Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, and that Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered an “influence campaign” to harm Clinton’s electoral chances and “undermine public faith in the US democratic process.”
This reminds us of the hit Netflix series House of Cards where becoming the most powerful man on earth, is the road less traveled by. Mr. Kushner says that his 4 meetings with Russia interlocutors were not special, following his closed door meeting with the US Senate.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the official investigating over the matter has been publicly admonished by President Trump. Even Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson has seen worsening relations with the US President, after Tillerson disapproved of the snub.
