Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 08, 2018

Last May, Jared Kushner accompanied President Trump, his father-in-law, on the pair's first diplomatic trip to Israel, part of Kushner's White House assignment to achieve peace in the Middle East. Shortly before, his family real estate company received a roughly $30 million investment from Menora Mivtachim, an insurer that is one of Israel's largest financial institutions, according to a Menora executive. The deal, which was not made public, pumped significant new equity into 10 Maryland apartment complexes controlled by Kushner's firm. While Kushner has sold parts of his business since taking a White House job last year, he still has stakes in most of the family empire -- including the apartment buildings in and around Baltimore.

The Menora transaction is the latest financial arrangement that has surfaced between Kushner's family business and Israeli partners, including one of the country's wealthiest families and a large Israeli bank that is the subject of a United States criminal investigation.

Mr. Kushner's White House assignment to achieve peace in the Middle East.
Ok, show of hands...
Who here actually believes Jared will accomplish this.

No one with at least a single functional synapse would.

Kushner's family bidness is under investigation by the SEC.... again,

"It's incredibly stupid and highly inappropriate," Richard Painter, the chief ethics lawyer in the Bush administration, told the Post. "They clearly imply that the Kushners are going to make sure you get your visa ... They're [Chinese applicants] not going to take a chance. Of course they're going to want to invest."

Let's NEVER again here another Republican complaining about the Clinton's so called 'pay to play' fund raising ever again. Jared Kushner just reaped 30 million pengos from a foreign corporation while acting on a diplomatic mission in that country. He belongs in jail.

I'm guessing the paperwork will get lost or the case suddenly dropped without explanation.

Dream on. Someone will post a Clinton deflection on this very thread before they get past the headline.

I couldn't agree more. I am sorry but it is so blatant and not even under a guise of appropriate.

BTW There is more than a little differentiation there even if true. One is for lining one's own pockets and one is for Charitable work. I want to make it clear to those thinking about bringing up "pay to play" with Clinton that the Clinton Foundation is a Charity Foundation with a 4 star rating. Charity Navigator

The Kush's organization on the other hand is a for profit real estate company.

More like a for profit litigation company operating in real estate.

On a separate note, I'd love for somebody to beat the crap out of Kushner and wipe that smug condescending smirk off his face.

Perhaps Barnabas can put him in a full nelson and Bradford can light him up?

Putting the best interests of our country first

And we sit on our hands and watch while Congress collects a paycheck for looking out for the best interests of the United States.

What a joke this administration is. Problem is, the joke's on us. Don't let the mid terms go by without giving the Republican controlled Congress a "career adjustment."

This is a crime, Kushner should be prosecuted but then Jeff Sessions is AG so we can forget about justice. It would be hard to imagine a worse person to be AG of the U.S.

Remember when Clinton's non-profit was a huge issue because money going to a non-profit that saves lives could be a pay-to-play situation...somehow...magically...

But money going to Kushner's pocket is perfectly okay.

We know Jared thinks so.
