I’ve said this before, the last time there was a Jared this famous it did not end well, ask Subway.
This story from the Washington Post unveils a host of issues with Jared Kushner and his position in the White House.
Let’s start with the finances. Jared Kushner owns 666 5th Avenue in the heart of Manhattan. Yes it’s the sign of the devil but we’ll go there some other time. A year from now the mortgage will balloon to 1.2 billion dollars. I don’t especially like using the word billion so let’s put it in another way it’s 1200 million dollars. Obviously he can borrow the money from his father-in-law even if his father-in-law had the money, I don’t think his father-in-law is the kind that gives money out. So he started going from bank to bank trying to sell the idea of refinancing this white elephant on Fifth Avenue. He went to the normal Banks and they all turned away so that he started going to the more let’s say Shady Financial organizations. Like Deutsche Bank, a bank whose motto should be we longer money better than your launderette. Don’t take my word for it they have been convicted on several counts of money laundering for both the mob and terrorist organizations. He’s also tried to get investment from the Chinese. It is reported that in his meeting in China last month he talked about his personal finances with foreign officials in China. And then there’s the Russians, those lovable Russians. They’ll lend money to anyone but I feel sorry if you don’t have the money to pay them back.
Now that we have all the characters laid out you can understand why Jared Kushner would be at Giant liability to this country. He knows all of the secrets that are told to the president, he owes huge amounts of money and he cannot get a security clearance.
Can anyone say blackmail?
