Fresh update on "jared kushner" discussed on Chip Franklin

"That same level. Ted Cruz. I don't know what this guy does, but he was at CPAC trying to be funny earlier today. Listen to a little bit of this. This is You know again, People have been mocking him by the way back at the Senate with means around the Senate, But listen up. God bless CPAC. Yeah. I got to say. Orlando is awesome. It's not as nice as Cancun. Nobody left. He's an idiot. But it's nice. It's so pathetic and it's pathetic on so many different levels. I I will get into that a little bit later on, If you guys remembered, Um Jamal could show these death. You remember then the way that the president then at the time Trump dealt with it. Our intelligence services had strong indications that and in some circles some real evidence. That, um Mohammed bin Salman was behind this. And that even there was a possibility that someone in this country may have alerted them to the show G being in in stumble where he eventually was murdered. Joining us right now is Washington Post global opinions editor Eli Lopez. You lie. So this latest declassification. What is it, telling us about his murder? Well, uh, like you said, there's nothing really that we didn't know. But this is an official unclassified report on and It was covered up by the trump of expression. The assessment of the intelligence community was in fact that MBS order the murder of democracy or Jake, there were high level officials involved. But they have refused to relieve this report in order to protect, uh, ruler that, quite frankly, just because he was buying weapons from the U. S. Well, should not be protected. And in this case should actually say very, very, very serious consequences for corporate into this. Yeah, And it was it was a political murder because she thought he was just reporting on human rights violations in the country. And you know, and the fact that he wasn't even in the country when he was killed, he was killed in the embassy and in stumble. Um it to me. I look at this and it's It's a little bit about arm sales, but with trumpets also, you know, I've said this many times that The Saudi Arabia purchased an entire 45th floor of one of his properties. And we don't know how much money has been, you know, channeled his way on. That's something, I guess what we'll learn, you know, through the this million pages of tax returns. But obviously the really the really disconcerting thing to me was the possibility that someone in the Trump administration may have alerted MBS about this and that he knew or could show to show his whereabouts, Possibly Because of someone like Jared Kushner did. None of that was obviously in this declassified report, right? No, no, That's a good question. What the report said. It is also very find a lot of a lot of previous intelligence. I have bean leaked about it. I've been upset about mentioned by other International agencies that were there were texts that were intercepted. We know that there was recording that happened in the consulate, the vegetable and we also and spruce again. That assessment. Well, you know that NBS rules with a very tight, tight grip, and this kinds of operations do not happen without his direct involvement. And that's basically what the intelligence is, as my sense is that it's very clear that this was the proof to the highest level, and there's no point in trying to deny it. And that's precisely what trumpet the reasons. Well, of course, like you mentioned. Could be very complex. But the fact remains the study Arabia, the U. S ally and Prince, but principles come before interests, you know, in any relationship between countries. Actually, that democracy of us that you know is supposed to protected enshrined freedom of expression, you know? Yeah, well, you know that relationship probably cost us on 9 11 2001. Um, uh. And you know, that's that was a $2 trillion mistake. Obviously theirs. I don't get it. I really don't. I mean, um, I know that the arms manufacturers in this country lobby hard and consistently On DPI. Peled talk about jobs and I don't care. I mean, you know you don't the people that are getting killed in Yemen, the women and Children and and families and just get on. In the middle of a of a famine and drought in a civil war. Saudi Arabia, which has absolutely no business, fighting them eyes using American missiles and jets to attack them still On, you know, And I'm anxious to hear what the president's going to say. Do we have any inclination is to what Biden might do here. Well, you know, President campaign on the pledge to hold the MBS, Saudi Arabia accountable for this horrible, horrible crime. There have been some indication that they will be holding some arms sales. They're the support for the Yemen War. The terrible civil war that you have mentioned. I have been officially withdrawn. The United States is not supporting that kind of campaign in that and that and that military conflict also, so of course, there is a lot more to be to be done to hold NBS accountable for one of the key things. That need to be put on the table two on especially to honor Jamal's legacy of journalism and federal expression, if too, start pressuring that regime to release political pressure prisoners to relieve human right back the list and to let people Express themselves freely on the Internet on social media things that were happening before on NBS. You have two kids campaign of repression. On and read. Well, quite frankly, Murder to the next level has had a terrible effect on that society. He rose to power under these supposed to, you know, modernizing figure, But he has hey, has been demonstrated to be just a tyrant and I don't think the U. S visitor. Uh, him a reliable ally. Well, one hopes I'd like to see something a little firmer, little more absolute and and to the point, But I guess we'll have to wait and see your life. Thank you for your time, and I appreciate your help. All right, you stay. Well, I mean, Again, that is Washington Put Washington Post Global opinions. Editor Eli Lopez. Yeah, Yeah, when you start going into the whole Middle East thing Um, it's it's sad and embarrassing. And, um, you know my entire life..

Fresh update on "jared kushner" discussed on The Joe Walsh Show

"To Saudi Arabia and our relationship America's relationship with Saudi Arabia. Is much more complicated. And new wives. But you know, here's the deal. Uh, Saudi Arabia is run by in evil, dictatorial regime. Evil dictators. Authoritarians run that country. And I will always say That one of the darker aspect Of the trump years. Was how Donald Trump Bowed to And prostrated himself. In front of the world's bad guys. The thugs and the dictators. Putin's the Kim Jeong Yoon's Er, DeWine's And you have the Saudi Crown Prince, Saudi Arabia. The thing with Trump in Trump's supporters will never acknowledge this. Trump loved dictators. Trump was always weak. We didn't talk about it this week. With the report that came out that Donald Trump offered In one of his meetings with Kim Jong Moon, Trump offered a ride back home to North Korea. Kim Jong Eun on Air Force one. If Obama had done something like that. Trump loved dictators. Dictators could work. Trump They abused Trump. They ran circles around Trump. Trump bowed to dictators. And I don't know. You know exactly what the combination of Trump's inherent weakness. He's a weak man. Who always wish that he could be a strong man. And and what or whether it's just concerned Trump's business interests. Liked it. Did Trump let Putin. Treat him like one of his puppets. Because Trump is just weak. Or because Trump was compromised by business interest in Russia. Saudi Arabia. Donald Trump would do whatever Saudi Arabia wanted him to do. Is that just because trump like idolized Um, uh, that the Saudi regime. Idolized the dictators. Idolized the young crown prince. Or did Trump was trump compromised by any of his business deals in Saudi Arabia? Either way. Again in it. It will always be one of those things. That will always so sadden and disappoint me. When it comes to Trump supporters. That they could never acknowledge this. We released today on intelligence report. That makes clear That Saudi Arabia is Crown Prince MBS Mohammed bin Salman MBS was behind the brutal killing in 2018 Of, uh, journalists. Jamal Kasogi. Our intelligence report released today. The Biden administration. And You know, it's you wanna be careful not to underestimate how profound this is. Biden administration allowed This intelligence report to be released today. That said NBS had him killed. MBS had cash. Yogi killed. As the report states. We assess that Saudi Arabia is Crown Prince approved in operation in in in Istanbul, Turkey to capture and kill Saudi journalist Jamal Kashiwagi. I mean, that's the this is today, the United States publicly telling the world That the Saudi Crown prince had kiss Yogi kill. The Trump Administration never would have done this. The Trump Administration never would have told the world That MBS did it. That the Saudi regime was behind. Killing that cash O G in Turkey. Kidnapping of in the killing of and then the Butchering of his body. His remains still undisclosed. Trump never would have let this information out. Because letting this information out telling the world That the Saudi Crown prince did it. He approved it. He did it. Makes him look bad in the eyes of the rest of the world, and Trump never would have done that. Right, Uh, away all MBS would have had to have done is tell Trump or his or Trump's son in law. Jared Kushner, don't do that. Don't let any of this public and Kushner and Trump wouldn't have done it because again we go back. To where we started. For some reason, Donald Trump always did. What dictators and thugs and I'm sorry. That word thug. I don't care if you're Putin. I don't care if you're a Saudi Crown Prince. When you order the brutal killing Of a journalist. Who was a United States resident, by the way. Your thug. You're just an evil, brutal thug. Don't care what your creed is. Don't care what your religion is. Don't care what your color is your thug. Biden allowed that out today. Released the report today. Telling the world that MBS is a thug. Trump never would have done this. Shortly after the report was released today. Secretary ST Anthony Blinken announced a new Kasogi ban. Allowing the United States to restrict visas for individuals acting on behalf. Of a foreign government who are directly engaged in quote serious extra territorial counter dissident activities, including those that suppress Wrath, surveil, threaten or harm journalist, activist or other persons perceived to be dissidents for their work. Lincoln said in the statement that the ban Which can cover family members, as well would immediately be applied to 76 Saudi individuals believed to have been engaged in threatening dissidents overseas, including but not limited to the Kasogi killing. The Treasury Department, then followed up with sanctions. Against a former Saudi intelligence official, as well as The crown prince is personal protective detail. I don't know how much tougher The Biden administration will get with Saudi Arabia. Again. We have a complicated relationship with them. In many weird ways. Saudi Arabia is an ally in that part of the world with us. But Saudi Arabia is a is run by a brutal regime. That every day in every week and every month violates basic human rights in the United States generally is hesitant to call up Saudi Arabia. The Trump Administration again was the worst and most extreme example of this. Not only would trump never call out Bad behavior by Putin, Erdogan or or or the crown the Saudi Crown prince. Trump would actually do their bidding. By releasing this report today. President Biden makes clear He's going down a different path. I don't know how far down this path will go. But releasing this report is a big step. NBS did.

Dershowitz nominates Kushner, aide for Nobel Peace Prize

"Harvard law professor emeritus. That's right, Alan Dershowitz that nominated Jared Kushner for the Nobel Peace Prize because, after all, he was able to cobble together four separate Israel peace deals in the Middle East with the United Arab Emirates and with Bahrain with Sudan and with Morocco, and if President Trump had remained in office, Saudi Arabia was next in line. But Biden will get back to bombing and war and dying because that's what the Democrats do. You know they inflicted how many things that they inflict upon us A whole lot of things. I think whole lot whole bunch. Unbelievable harmony. The um you know, they bombed the Obama. Biden People Libya into oblivion. It's a failed state to this day. Pretty amazing stuff. They bomb and bomb and bomb and they get the Nobel Peace Prize. And no problem, not a not a thing they target missed last night American citizens and they got the Nobel Peace Prize. The Trump Administration for Mideast peace deals Historic each and every one of them and in combination historic on an epic scale and was President Trump will have President Trump was nominated actually four times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

US Help Gulf States Agree to Ease Relations With Qatar

"Deal between two important but feuding allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Jared Kushner, president Trump's son in law and adviser, was on hand for a signing ceremony in the Saudi kingdom. It marks the end to a three year rift that threatened to undermine U. S strategy in the Gulf region. NPR's Jackie Northam reports. They were warm hugs and handshakes, all while wearing masks as Saudi Arabia is Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman created Cutter shake Tommen bin Hamad al family ahead of today's signing. Seen belied the deep animosity between the two countries since mid 2017 when Saudi Arabia announced the diplomatic trade and travel blockade against his tiny rich neighbor. Frederick Wary is with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The Saudis wanted to bring contact to its knees. The Saudis made at least a dozen demands of cutter and none of them to my knowledge were, you know fulfilled for asthma. Assad with George Washington University's Elliott School for International Affairs, says the Saudi Crown prince realized it was time to move on, especially with an incoming Biden administration that is promised to get tough with Saudi Arabia, Arabia. Clearly this is Part in parcel of turning the page. They are setting the table, so to speak for better relations with the incoming Bud Administration, But it was the Trump Administration that's been pushing to resolve the spat. Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Our allies in the U. S has a large military base in Qatar. The administration also wants to create a bulwark against Iran. Carnegie's wary doesn't buy it to say that the Gulf is going to be united against Iran that there's going to be this Impenetrable Gulf Sunni bloc now against Iran, because suddenly Qatar has been brought into the fold is just pure fantasy. I mean, the gulf has always been this united in terms of its outreach and policies toward Iran, and many of the issues that started the feud are still there. Hotter still has relations with Iran. Look sad with the Elliott School says it's not a sure thing. Today's deal will stick. The reporting is that the deal almost fell apart on Sunday in the U. S.

"Trump parted another batch of loyalists including Roger Stone and Paul Manafort tonight. Charles Kushner, the father of Mr Trump's son in law. Jared Kushner also had his legal record wiped. The president made this new batch of clemencies just after leaving the White House for Mar A Lago in Palm Beach, Florida ABC News Political director Rick Klein joined W. T. O P s Dmitri Sodas to take a deeper look at those pardons, stunning series of names, the kind of list that you can't imagine any other president ever. Compiling about a month before he leaves office. These are political loyalists of the father of his own son in law, Jared Kushner, among them in Paul Manafort, Roger Stone to individuals who remained loyal through some very tough legal times. They really brought upon themselves the president clearly using his power now, on the way out the door to reward loyalists in ways that would be unfathomable. You know the any other administration. This is not The normal channel or the normal course of business. These are not people that would have been pardoned, or Heather senses committed by any other president, but saying oil to President Trump has paid off for them. Can we talk about the Mueller investigation as sprawling and wide ranging as it was essentially being undone here? Is that my my overreaching or is that correct? I think the president is systematically taking away the accomplishments and undermining The very real prosecutorial work that they accomplished particularly with the Paul Manafort conviction. I think the Roger Stone one probably fits into this is well, you had a office inside the Department of Justice that was very aggressively looking for things that were prosecutable, and they found them in many cases, and now the president is coming out and saying This whole thing was Was a witch hunt from the start. And that's That's what his former national security adviser, or, you know, already the beneficiary of one of these pardons one of these computations and I think yes, I think anything associated with Mueller, the president is more inclined than most to say. This is something that I can undo with this pardon power we have heard in recent months. Defenders of the president point to the sheer numbers that is that other presidents maybe take Bill Clinton as an example, may have actually pardoned more people in the end and that President Trump should Not be criticized for using one of the few powers that a president can wield. Shall we say unilaterally, and he can use it, But I think the criticism is very much justified when you realize that this is not the normal process where people petitioned for the Department of Justice, you get a recommendation not to say that other presidents have never used political loyalties, particularly Bill Clinton in the past, But we remember times were Where there was outward lobbying on George W. Bush for Scooter Libby from his own Vice President Dick Cheney. He's still resisted and said, No, I'm not gonna issue that pardon. Actually, he was pardoned ultimately, by President Trump similar for Barack Obama. He did not consider pardons that that would have that kind of personal connection. They went up to the Department of Justice. The president has this part in power, he can use it. It's one of the few unchecked, unchallenged powers, but it's clear that President Trump is using it specifically to single out people that have been loyalty to him to pay off political patron's political donors, people in his own family. It may be setting up the ultimate pardons, which would be potentially pardons of people in the inner inner circle and maybe in his own family. There are partners on the way out the door of his sons of his daughter, Ivanka, maybe of himself. That would be the ultimate tell and truly without precedent. That's ABC News political director Rick Klein, who joined us on Skype.

Trump's move also took the U. N by surprise. We've just learned of this through Twitter post, U. N spokesman Stephane Dujarric says the secretary general is still convinced that it's possible to reach a negotiated solution based on U. N resolutions. One Former U. N and U. S diplomat Jeffrey Feldman says the U. S. Was already leaning toward Morocco's planned offer some autonomy but not independence. For the people of Western Sahara. Previous administrations have never come out fully in support of Morocco. There's been kind of a wink wink nudge nights. The Moroccan economy plan looks pretty good as a basis for How you would negotiate a permanent settlement. But he fears that President Trump's move will short circuit diplomacy, leaving the Saharawi people weaker as he's done with others. He hasn't shown much empathy for weaker parties. Whether we're talking about the Kurds in Syria or the the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, and now this stuff rallies, Palestinians are sounding frustrated, too, as more Arab countries agreed to normalize ties with Israel

"So there is all of this potential that foreign governments could think that they could exploit these business needs of the kushner companies to somehow advance their own interests well we don't know why jared kushner can't get a top secret clearance the white house won't discuss it but it's evident that people in the national security apparatus who are in charge of reviewing these things and granting authorization for these clearances think that jared kushner shouldn't have one and then the question becomes once you've talked about all the business ties andrea how can he do his job without access to top secret information you know can he broker middle east peace can he talk about egypt and saudi arabia for starters china for that matter without top secret clearance well the kushner family as our partners that propelled look i have reported has donated two settlements on the west bank and his family is very close to the prime minister bibi netanyahu too netanyahu who has been to the kushner family home in new jersey so even assuming that kushner was on neutral territory and could do it and if the answer is he works for the president so whatever the president once he can do i also think it's worth pointing out that the trump white house and particularly the president has been at war with the national security apparatus in some ways since even before he became president so i think it just important to view these stories in that context of there is a latin going on in washington in that back and forth an itera before we go because i have a feeling that you and i are going to be talking about this again robert muller looking at all of this is if he's looking at business dealings in official acts could jared kushner potentially be in some trouble well we do know that in the flynn guilty plea he said that he had been in touch with a very senior campaign official has been identified as jared kushner in discussions during the transition over being in touch with the us.
