Report on Kushner Undermines Russia Link

Another day, another Russian meme from the media to attack the Trump administration.

This time Reuters and the Washington Post teamed up to attack Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, with the Russian connection. This came out at the end of Friday to cause maximum damage via the Sunday talk shows.

After the Nov. 8 election, Kushner and Flynn also discussed with Kislyak (Russian ambassador) the idea of creating a back channel between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could have bypassed diplomats and intelligence agencies, two of the sources said. Reuters was unable to determine how those discussions were conducted or exactly when they took place.

Reuters was first to report last week that a proposal for a back channel was discussed between Flynn and Kislyak as Trump prepared to take office. The Washington Post was first to report on Friday that Kushner participated in that conversation.

The Conservative Treehouse notes:

Of course President-elect Trump’s staff would consider a back-channel set up for communications with Russian government officials in November and December 2016, just about everyone with a tinge of common sense was saying that exact construct was needed.

Why?

Well, you must remember the atmosphere after the November 8th election during the time period being discussed. President Obama, in close coordination with his U.S. media allies, was filling the airwaves with toxic anti-Russian narratives in an explicit attempt to make any structural positive relationship between the pending Trump administration and Russia impossible.

Additionally, if Jared Kushner -as the WaPo claims- discussed setting up a “secret channel” of communication with Kysliak in December 2016 then common sense would tell you they didn’t have one prior to the election on Nov 8th. {{poof}} …there goes the ‘vast Russian conspiracy.

What this Reuters and Washington Post story actually does is prove the Obama Administration was spying on the Trump campaign. That’s the explosive angle to the story.

Exactly. If the Trump people had had a relationship with the Russians during the election cycle, there would be no need to make one after the election. Right there logic destroys this whole ridiculous idea.
