Jared Kushner seems to think that the spotlight on his potential crimes will go away if he goes back home to New York.
The New York Times reported, “Still, there are signs that he is tiring of the nonstop combat and the damage to his reputation. He has told friends that he and his wife, Ivanka Trump, have made no long-term commitment to remain by Mr. Trump’s side, saying they would review every six months whether to return to private life in New York.”
The bad news for Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump is that they aren’t going to be able to walk back into their old lives and escape their part in working for Daddy Dearest.
It is like these people are on a different planet and remain completely clueless about what they have gotten themselves in the middle of. Kushner is not going to be able to escape his potentially illegal acts by running back to New York.
At best, Jared Kushner has gotten himself involved in lying on his security clearance form multiple times. At worst, Kushner may have committed crimes against the United States of America. These are not simple problems that will go away if one decides to resign their post as a White House Senior Adviser and go back home to the Big Apple.
Jared and Ivanka may bail on Trump, but the damage has already been done. Forget about the debate over Kushner’s security clearance; the larger question could end up centering around if he committed a felony.
Trump got his kids into the Russia scandal and leaving town isn’t going to get them out.
