The Feds Are Closing In And Boy, It Sure Looks Like Jared Kushner Is Royally Fucked

no title

Late Friday night, a report came out that Jared KushnerDonald Trump's son-in-law and closest White House adviser — had at least three undisclosed contacts with a Russian ambassador during and after the 2016 Presidential campaign.

Minutes before, another even more damning report had landed, too: Kushner had approached Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak about creating a top-secret back-channel for communications at the Russian consulate in New York City.

The back-channel would have allowed The Donald and his then-transition team to communicate with Vladimir Putin without being monitored by U.S. national intelligence officials.

As the feds close in, and the special counsel appointed to investigate Trump's Russia ties continues to widen their probe in addition to the work the FBI is doing, it's now becoming painfully clear: Jared Kushner is fucked.

And his defense for all this?!

Oh, wait ’til you hear his defense!

It's this, from Kushner's lawyer Jamie Gorelick alleging his client had no memory of any contacts of phone calls he made with the Russians in the last year:

no title

Jared Kushner may not tweet, but he does know about 140 shady characters.

After a report in the Washington Post last week, people were speculating that Ivanka Trump's husband might be the White House adviser described as the next person of interest in the FBI's investigation.

You may recall this person supposedly had coordinated communication between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Whether Kushner is that person is unclear, but now multiple U.S. officials have confirmed to NBC News that the First Son-In-Law is definitely under FBI scrutiny.

According to these officials, investigators believe the enigmatic businessman has "significant information relevant to their inquiry," though he has not yet been subpoenaed for that info.

Kushner's lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, responded to the story, saying:

Michael Flynn Pleading The Fifth Amendment Is Funny, Considering How He And Trump Felt About That Last Year…

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald Trump

Well, shit.

If the investigation into Donald Trump does yield new corruption (you know, in addition to all the obstruction of justice), it won't be from the testimony of Michael Flynn.

The short-term national security adviser who lied about his communications with Russia during Trump's transition has just stalled his own investigation by announcing he will plead the fifth amendment.

Flynn's attorneys wrote a letter to the Senate intelligence committee that seems to claim the move is justified not because he's guilty but because he's worried about being prosecuted anyway amid the "escalating public frenzy against him."

So nothing in his documents is evidence of any crime, but it all makes him look more guilty? Hmm…

John Oliver usually tackles a bigger window of time than just the last week on Last Week Tonight, but this past week was too crazy!

First, it was revealed Donald Trump spilled top secret info to the Russians — because he was bragging. Then THAT scandal was replaced by James Comey's memo reporting the POTUS actually asked him to stop the FBI's investigation.

Oh, and did we mention Trump's national security team said he won't read anything without his name being mentioned every couple sentences??

But the most amazing thing, the punchline to all of this, what you absolutely HAVE to see is Oliver's reminder of the scandal Barack Obama was facing at about the same time during his presidency.

Ch-ch-check that out at 23:05 or watch the entire ridiculous recap (below)!

In case you've been living under a rock — and let's be clear, no one would blame you! — Donald Trump's latest scandal is doing something that isn't illegal, but would be for anyone else.

He spilled top secret U.S. intelligence with Russian government officials.

The craziest part? It isn't so much evidence of collusion so much as evidence of complete ineptitude! According to witnesses he was just bragging about the quality of his state secrets!

Sally Yates goes under oath.

As you may remember, the acting attorney general was fired by President Donald Trump after she refused to defend his new immigrant ban targeting seven Muslim-majority nations.

On Monday, the former DOJ member took the stand to testify on her experience regarding the travel ban, Michael Flynn, and Russia's speculated involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

Here's what you missed.

Yates reiterated her opinion that the travel ban (which she found out about through the media, BTW) was unconstitutional and "unlawful" as it discriminated based on religion:
