Fate of Kushner's security clearance could ultimately lie with Trump

No, Junior, you're not the first person to take such a meeting.

In addition, the Post reports that the president's daughter Ivanka Trump also relies on foreign factories.

On Trump's global influence, 48% said they see the United States' leadership in the world as getting weaker since Trump took office, compared with 27% who say it has grown stronger and 23% who say it has stayed about the same.

He is one. No one should take this lightly. It is not time to move along.

Not only is Trump stunningly unpopular, but his support has already been reduced to base levels, and the bad news for this White House is that there is plenty of room for him to drop. "Mr. Kushner has submitted additional updates and included, out of an abundance of caution, this meeting with a Russian person, which he briefly attended at the request of his brother-in-law, Donald Trump Jr", Gorelick said.

But emails released last week by Trump Jr. showed him eagerly agreeing to a meeting that promised "information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation", allegedly "part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

But it's harder for an administration to make that case when it holds back relevant details until they dribble out in the press-as Ari Fleischer agreed on yesterday's "Media Buzz".

Liberal government watchdog groups last week filed a complaint with the Justice Department and the Federal Election Commission accusing Trump Jr., Manafort, and Kushner of illegally soliciting a campaign contribution from a foreign national.

Not just a happenstance, off-the-cuff get-together: a big meeting, one that Donald Trump Jr. reportedly ran - the big man. Trump Jr. didn't say anything about Clinton. When the Russians come calling, you don't have to listen; as a matter of fact, you don't have to listen or talk.

Concerns over the fate of Jared Kushner's final security clearance have begun to creep into the West Wing. She told the Wall Street Journal she wanted to tell the Trump campaign of an American company that had failed to pay taxes in Russian Federation and then donated to Democrats. "And if it wasn't working, we would kill it quickly", Kushner told Forbes.

Democracy is not a real estate deal or a NY solid waste pickup contract, but that is how these three Trump campaign officials treated it in agreeing to meet to accept opposition research they believed came from the Russian government.

Well, we do know that there was a series of Russian trolls, paid individuals who worked for the Russian services that were trying to interfere and put fake news out.

President Trump has repeatedly defended his eldest son over the controversial 2016 meeting, dismissing it as "opposition research". A fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and a former federal prosecutor, he has a reputation for managing crises and dealing with corruption allegations. They will turn on that spotlight so hot it burns his backside. Others on the Russia-response team include lawyer Jay Sekulow, a frequent TV surrogate for Trump, and Mark Corallo, a public relations consultant. But how do we know? Trump Jr.'s explanations of the reason for the meeting evolved after The New York Times published several stories about the meeting in recent days.

When Don Jr. did his interview with Sean Hannity, the Fox host asked him if he had met with any other Russians.

With the election of Donald Trump, AMERICAblog's independent journalism and activism is more needed than ever.

The White House has no major legislative achievements to boast of, aside from the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court - and even that required Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's heavy hand.

Imagine facing a ship full of rats with the power of a subpoena and the threat of imprisonment.

"How dare you send me an email like that". They've squandered both: Trump through his chaotic, ad hoc, social media-driven approach to leadership, and Congress with its intraparty gridlock and lack of concrete, feasible plans.
