Jared Kushner, son-in-law and top adviser to Donald Trump, was once considered the deranged president’s most level-headed confidant. Unfortunately, Kushner has just recently shattered his own reputation by doing something really, really dumb.
As he is currently being investigated in the FBI probe regarding the possible collusion of the Trump campaign and Russia, Kushner has decided to get himself a lawyer – the wrong one. Kushner probably thought it was a great idea to hire well-known trial lawyer Abbe D. Lowell, who has previously defended major figures such as former vice-presidential nominee John Edwards, and GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff. There’s just one big problem with that.
While Lowell is undoubtedly talented enough to handle the task of defending Kushner as the FBI looks into his meetings with Russia’s ambassador and a Russian banker, Lowell has a pretty well-known hatred for Trump and even worked against him during the election. Lowell not only dislikes Trump, but he repeatedly donated to Trump’s most influential challengers – former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama. That’s right – Kushner hired an attorney that was against his father and did everything in his power to stop Trump from winning the election! This is not going to pan out well for Kushner in the Russia investigation.
And, if you can believe it, it gets even worse. Kushner has another attorney who won’t be much better for him and the Trump administration. Kushner’s other attorney, Jamie Gorelick, had also donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign when she was running for president.
A mistake this obvious is pretty insane, but we all know that Trump and his minions never do their research before getting in too deep. This f*ck up is so unbelievable, it’s almost like Kushner wants his father-in-law to get caught and impeached for his Russia scandal.
