Bad Jared! Trump Now Blames Kushner For Russia Probe

PHOT TAKEN JUNE 30 2017

Thanksgiving could be pretty tense at whatever Trump golf resort the first family chooses to celebrate the upcoming holiday.

Many politicians and pundits have pointed to the Comey firing as obstruction of justice, especially after Trump told NBC News' Lester Holt that the Russia investigation played a part in Comey's termination and the president bragged to Russian officials that getting rid of "nut job" Comey made the Russian investigation easier.

The first charges in the Mueller probe have kindled talk of what the endgame for Trump looks like, according to conversations with a half-dozen advisers and friends of the president.

According to Vanity Fair writer Gabriel Sherman, those indictments announced loud and clear that the Russian Federation investigation poses an existential threat to Trump's presidency.

Sam Nunberg, who works under Stone and briefly worked for Trump's campaign, then criticized Kushner on the record. An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released on Sunday put Trump's approval rating at 38 percent - the lowest for the survey since February, when he was a month into his presidency. Trump himself called to assure two Times reporters that everything is fine, he's super chill and everything's hunky-dory.

The move follows last week's vote by the parliament of Catalonia to declare independence from Spain . The crimes being probed are punishable with up to 30 years in prison under Spanish law.

"If Trump pardons Jared, Trump won't be the 2020 nominee", he said in an email.

On Monday and Tuesday, Trump took phone calls with his former White House strategist Steve Bannon, who is now back to running the hard-line conservative news site Breitbart.

The president (left) placed blame on Jared Kushner (right) for Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, which resulted in the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The man responsible for the investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller, is widely being dubbed as Trump's "worst nightmare" and, perhaps, rightfully so as Trump's top aides' shady links with Russian Federation seem to be unraveling.

When longtime Trump ally Roger Stone recently told the president that Jared had been giving him bad political advice, the president agreed, someone familiar with the conversation told Sherman.

The company reported an EPS of $1.59, up 77 percent year over year, and beating analysts' estimates of $1.28. The Senate Intelligence Committee has also questioned representatives from Google and Twitter.

'Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history, ' Nunberg told Vanity Fair.

The White House didn't respond to Vanity Fair's request for comment.

From the outset of his father-in-law's presidential campaign, Kushner was the architect of Trump's digital, online, and social media campaigns, enlisting talent from Silicon Valley to run a 100-person social-media team dubbed "Project Alamo".

It's unclear if their questions about Kushner signals anything deeper about Mueller's investigation into the President's inner circle, but the CNN report shows that the investigation has extended beyond the 2016 campaign and into the administration. That fact could add to Trump's reported aggravation with his son-in-law.

Russia Probe Centers On Trump Campaign Aide
Papadopoulos, of Novi, has the misfortune of a distinctive name that's shared with a former adviser of President Donald Trump. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders termed Papadopoulos' role with the campaign as " extremely limited".
