FEATURING STEPHEN SPAULDING – Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s latest target for investigation in the Russia probe appears to be Donald Trump’s son-in-law and close advisor Jared Kushner and how Trump’s foreign policy might have been influenced by Kushner and his business interests.
Several reports offer strong suggestions of corruption. First, it was revealed that Kushner Companies last year received more than $500 million worth of loans from Apollo Global Management and Citigroup after Kushner met with those companies’ representatives.
Second, Kushner Companies reportedly approached the government of Qatar for loans last year and after being rebuffed President Trump backed a Saudi Arabian blockade of Qatar, bizarrely accusing it of financing terrorism networks.
And third, the Washington Post reported that officials from four countries other than Russia apparently discussed ways in which to exploit Kushner’s business needs in order to obtain favorable US policies. Those countries include the UAE, China, Mexico, and Israel.
