Jared Kushner has been romping gleefully around the world on behalf of the Trump administration despite his lack of relevant experience and complete failure to demonstrate any diplomatic acumen. However, incompetence could be soon be revealed to be outright criminality.
Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu has moved to expose Kushner’s wrongdoing.
In a tweet addressed to the Trump surrogate, Rep. Lieu informs Kushner that he should hire a lawyer. He alleges that Kushner has committed a crime in failing to disclose secret meetings he had with Russian officials. It seems Lieu expects the Justice Department to take action against Kushner in the foreseeable future.
Dear Jared Kushner: Lying on the SF-86 security clearance form is a crime. Michael Flynn hired a lawyer. You may also want to hire a lawyer.
— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) April 25, 2017
Lieu has clearly decided Kushner is a direct threat to the wellbeing of the United States. He’s the same Congressman who previously urged that Kushner’s security clearance be removed. The likelihood that someone with Kushner’s influence and access has engaged in criminal activity with a hostile foreign power is as terrifying as it is stunning.
