After Special Counsel Robert Mueller requested Jared Kushner’s private emails, Trump’s son in law moved his emails to Trump Organization servers.
USA Today reported:
President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump moved their personal email accounts to computers run by the Trump Organization as public scrutiny intensified over their use of private emails to conduct White House business, internet registration records show.
The move, made just days after Kushner’s use of a personal email account first became public, came shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller asked the White House to turn over records related to his investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump associates. It also more closely intertwines President Trump’s administration with his constellation of private businesses.
The only reason to make this move is to try to hide records from the Special Counsel’s request. Jared Kushner is trying to dodge giving Mueller his the emails that were government business conducted on a private email account by moving the emails so that he can claim that they are outside the jurisdiction of Mueller’s request.
There is a reason why Trump’s own attorneys have told him to distance himself from Kushner. Trump’s son in law is one of the key links between Putin and Trump. Kushner bragged about the data operation that he built for Trump, but investigators are looking at how Kushner got the data and who he might have been sharing it with.
Kushner has major problems, and these dodge and weave games are an effort to buy himself more time. The next step will be for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to move back to New York.
Jared Kushner could be a key part of the Trump/Russia relationship, and his downfall could send the entire house of cards tumbling down.
