I don't think the Nixon defense, "I don't recall," is a smart strategy for Jared but it might be the only one available.
"Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.
Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. Kislyak said Kushner suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States for the communications.
The meeting also was attended by Michael Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser.
The White House disclosed the meeting only in March, playing down its significance. But people familiar with the matter say the FBI now considers the encounter, as well as another meeting Kushner had with a Russian banker, to be of investigative interest." ..........................................................................................................................................
"Top presidential adviser Jared Kushner’s legal team pushed back Friday night against a report that the White House senior adviser and Trump son-in-law had at least three undisclosed contacts with a Russian ambassador during and after the 2016 presidential campaign, saying he had “no recollection” of the alleged exchanges."
A few years ago I was in DC with a friend visiting the museums and monuments. At the Nat History Mus I noticed three of Obama's young people stealing packages while visitors viewed the exhibits. I turned to face them so that they would not steal from my g/f.
Later I saw them on The Mall perched in a small tree with opened packages beneath them. It made me think, this is what 10,000 years ago looked like on the African Savannah. Evolution comes slowly to some.
Obama is acting out in Berlin saying that only love will defeat ISIS. Too bad he could not put them on Medicaid. He has his silicon valley allies saying this nonsense too.
But to give both sides, it appears that Bush did not understand the terrorists too well either. He said they hate us because of our freedoms. No, they hate us because we are not Muslim.
Donald understands that this is religious war. Treating it as anything else is futile.
If anything comes out of the Trump/Russia "investigation", then Obama/Holder/Lynch should be fair game for blatant disregard of the law when it came to handling of people illegally in the U.S.. Also, jump to conclusion handling of race issues violated just about everyone's civil rights. And let's start with an easy one, Lynch meeting with Dollar Bill on that Phoenix tarmac. She should get an extra long sentence for that one.
The "Sage of the Short Bus" in a cutting and pasting frenzy! What a life you must lead, Billy Bob. Hope you are thoroughly annoyed this holiday weekend. To think brave men died for your type. Very sad.
Trouble in Liberal paradise. NYC's PR day parade will lead with the recently obama pardoned PR terrorist responsible for over 100 bombings in the 70's, and police and fire departments will not participate. Looks ripe for a problem and an addition to obama's legacy of incompetence and dislike for American law
Food stamps work. Each month they help feed 43 million poor and low-income Americans, most in families with children and working parents. Food stamps, officially the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, keep millions of people from falling into poverty each year and prevent millions of poor people, many disabled or elderly, from falling deeper into poverty.
They also improve the future prospects of poor children by fostering better health and graduation rates.
Benefits average only $1.40 per person per meal, ineligible recipients are rare and incorrect payments are few. Into the bargain, food stamps support the farm economy and the broader economy by creating a bigger market for food and supplying cash that is quickly spent.
President Trump’s budget plan would destroy the food stamp program, on the pretense that it discourages work. That’s nonsense, because most adult recipients either work or are unable to do so because of age or disability. A more plausible explanation is that cutting food stamps would help to offset the cost of huge tax cuts for the rich.

"Explosive news release: Obama administration guilty of using intelligence gathering for political purposes."
It looks like Obama was better at domestic political espionage than he was at national security or being an effective leader of the free world.
Obama knowingly let in MS13 gang members and shipped them out to communities across the US. Washington Times reporting.
Why would INS do this? They had orders to refuse no one.
Speedy is happy the Repub won spec election in Montana. There was far too much media whining about this small incident.
Speedy heading up to Tampa for fishing on Cousin Rickster's boat. He has two sugar baby tryouts coming along.
I went out to Everglades Acres to take Ana some food treats. Don't want her to think I am ignoring her because she is out of commission due to her labiaplasty. Two more weeks she says.
This time it's different (for pods).
Remember when Mitch McConnell orchestrated a nearly 8 year campaign to block President Obama's agenda, culminating in a refusal to hold hearings for SC nominee Merrick Garland 10 months before Obama's second term expired? Remember when President Obama was criticized for playing golf and spending too much money on vacations? Remember when Michael Flynn led the chants of "lock her up" directed at Hillary over the security of her e-mail server and Don wondered on Twitter why anyone would need to plead the 5th? Remember when Don criticized Obama for considering military action in Syria, especially ones not authorized by Congress? Remember when not wearing a suit coat and tie in the Oval Office was considered something unbecoming of a President? Remember when Don considered seeking immunity in exchange for testimony a virtual admission of guilt? Remember when it was unconscionable to saddle our grandchildren with more debt? Remember when someone who settled a fraud case relating to a fake university once tweeted the EC "is a disaster for democracy?" Remember when someone who admitted to groping women suggested Obama wasn't being transparent enough and then refused to release the WH visitor's log? Remember when an escalation of the conflict in Afghanistan was called a "waste" by an inveterate liar? Remember when the idea of government spending on infrastructure improvements was blocked by Repubs? Remember when the issuance of Executive Orders was supposed to have signaled an imperial presidency? Remember when it was okay to refer to the President and First Lady as monkeys? Remember when the courts were commended for their independence when they ruled against the Obama admin.? Remember when passing a healthcare reform bill without knowing what was in it was an act of lunacy? Remember when statistics on an improving economy were called fake? Remember when people losing their healthcare under ACA was a catastrophe?
Funny how opinions change when a white, Repub, pathological liar is in the WH.
Bill, just wondering; does posting a copy and paste article then "replying" to it 5-10 times with more bash Trump articles make you feel good ? I hope so because it does absolutely nothing for anyone else.
Obama caught using intelligence gathering to spy on the public even after being rebuked by FISA. No doubt he unmasked Flynn and did who knows how much harm to others. He and his lying partner Susan Rice were up to no good. The Messiah of Hope and Change turned out to be a lying, spying, outlaw. May he and Susan pay for this.
Another obama legacy.......ISIS
Obama.... tilled.... seeded.... fertilized.... and watered.... the Arab Spring from which ISIS sprung
The Trump administration has taken thousands of government records offline since taking office. We’re getting them back.
Obama's creation launches another attack in Manchester. If Hillary were president, they would be making their bombs in the U.S. and living off the government. Another reason to thank the Lord for the Donald.
Did Podesta order killing of Seth Rich? Here are the emerging facts: 1. Assange implies Rich was leaker 2. Podesta wrote the leaker must be made an example 3. Rich murdered and it was no robbery.
Rich was a DNC staffer and his motive in leaking may have been what Hillary and the DNC was doing to Bernie.
DEMs in a frenzy, The President is cutting welfare, food card and medicaid fraud to the bone............What are these poor liberals going to do? They don't like having to get up at 6am everyday to go and work.......they are used to just watching you leave. He must have had welfare lists cross checked against DMV records .......you don't need food or welfare cash if you own a new car or suv
Trumps overseas trip reveals just how glad everyone is that Obama is long gone. As stated before, the first and last black president will just be an asterisk in the history books.
Pope gives Donald his paper on environment. One point of this doc is no use of A/C. Those of us who live in FL just laugh at this stupid idea.
Speedy hopes Donald will wipe this doc on the seat of his pants and throw it in the trash same as I did with the Nasty Old Lady's bad review of me.
Disclosure: Speedy is not Catholic. 95% of priests in the Miami Diocese are G/pedo.
