Deal of the Century: Jason Greenblatt, the Heart of the Deal
"Was one of the chief architects. I worked very closely with two good friends of mine. Jared Kushner president trump's son-in-law and senior adviser to president trump. As, well as our friend, ambassador David Friedman the US ambassador to Israel. And I would agree with you that it's an opportunity to the next generation, but I would say aides and opportunity for the next generation of everybody in the region, Israelis Palestinians and all of our countries that surround them. I think that people have come to the realization that the past peace efforts have failed. They are unlikely to succeed, and what we have presented is a very detailed very lengthy plan that could show everybody what the compromises are. That are necessary in order to achieve peace and I think that the younger generation in the region is ready for this I think that believe that the Palestinian people deserve something so much better than the half I think that if we succeed, if peace is achieved, everybody in the region can benefit from it tremendously now it's as if in anticipation of the Palestinian. Authority's rejection of the plan. You'd also consulted with Palestinian people on the ground. I guess ground groundswell is also the key to making peace. It's in the hearts of the people as well as the leadership. Absolutely first of all it was no secret test that the Palestinian Authority would likely reject the plan any plan frankly that we put out. When President Trump made his bold and courageous historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and several months later move the embassy, both in accordance with US law something that US law required since nineteen, ninety five. The Palestinian Authority cut ties to the administration. But they also began to trash. Talk the plan that they have not yet seen in in the months. Preceding the launch of the plan, they rejected the plan including using statements by their prime minister. Such as the plan should be born dead. It should be a stillborn something to that effect. That's not quite an exact quote, but that was the tone of the conversation about the plan, but what everybody should realizes it isn't just the leadership that is necessary to get on board. It is essential for people to get on board, and if the people are not with this plan whether Israeli or The plan has little chance to succeed. I also want to add. We have to remember that. Really are two leaderships for the Palestinians or at least one leadership in Ramallah and one so-called leadership in Gaza. Hamas, which was a terrorist organization funded by Iran, and that subjugates the nearly two million Palestinians that live in Gaza causes tremendous suffering to those Palestinians. is whether we like it or not. At some form of Palestinian leadership, so even if the leadership in Ramallah even if President Obama's were to engage the plant. One has to wonder and really talk about what happens to the Palestinians, in Gaza, our plan of course provides for that, but we can't get the people in Gaza in their their so called leadership on board than there is no effective way to implement the peace plan. Very few people talk about that. Make It seem as though it's simple. If president us, either condemns the plan or engages on the plan then. Then we know our next steps while that's a bit too simplistic. We must all figure out a way to handle and deal with the two million Palestinians who are suffering in Gaza.

Whistleblower complaint alleges virus warnings were ignored
"Remember Dr Rick Bright. He was the guy who would be in charge of the government's efforts to find a corona virus vaccine and two weeks ago. He was removed from this extremely important job with zero explanation. Then Dr Bright claimed he was fired for pushing back on President. Trump. President trump push for an unproven malaria drug to be essentially distributed on demand. Today he filed a really revealing and shocking whistleblower complaint charging among other things and abusive authority or gross mismanagement. He elaborated on a conference call reporters this afternoon two years however had been beyond challenging time. After time I was pressured to ignore or dismiss expert and scientific recommendations and instead to award lucrative contracts based on political connections in other words I was pressured to let politics and cronyism dry decisions over the opinions of the best scientists. We have in government Dr. Brian also described his concerns about the lack of government response to the growing outbreak. As far back as January after bright relayed concerns from domestic surgical mass produced that quote the mask supplies at imminent risk. Nothing happened for Week. Leading the mask producer. Email bright quote rick. I think we're in deep shit joining me now. Sam Stein politics editor of the daily beast reporter. Dr Rick Complaint today and Sam. It's it's a long and detailed document and it is quite revealing. What jumped out to you? Well two things. One is the stuff that happened prior to the corona virus outbreak. Which is he details. The systematically corrupt HHS process in which Huge contracts being awarded to people who are very close to top officials at the Agency. The more pressing thing obviously many detailed an administration that was basically had their heads in the sand. I with respect to the corner virus outbreak in China for weeks. Not Months you touched on a bunch of stuff early on but just warning for seeing that a shortage of n ninety five masks was going to be a huge problem and being unable to convince anyone up the chain that this is something they had to deal with also a or lack thereof around getting a vaccine in the developmental process which we now see the administration. The president has but he was talking with officials. January early February about the need to prioritize the stuff and of course got nowhere. But I think the larger thing I was it was interesting to hear. Kathleen civilians. Talk about this is that there's sort of a bigger picture here. Which is that. The careerist and the scientists in the administration were more or less ignored or pushed aside and have been since the onset of the administration's not just the disbanding of the pandemic units. But its people like Dr Bright who are dismissed as alarmist even though the scientist nistration and this is sort of common pattern that you see with his presidency where he goes more with his political guts and how he's thinking than actually doing any long term strategic planning and it's more than guts and there's an allegation of essentially corruption. Here right that that that you have career. Scientists and civil servants were making determinations based on the science and there's pressure from above from the trump administration to steer things in the direction of people that have a a monitor interest because they're buddies of the president like that. And that's one thing if you're talking about know a contract for buying pencils for a federal agency it's another we're talking about vaccines and lifesaving drugs right now. There's so there was this story which detailed the president's push for hydroxy chloroquine as therapy drug To be stockpiled against all sort of prevailing scientific evidence or lack thereof that it was effective in Dr Bright raise. Those concerns admitted that he brought to the attention or confirmed an inquiry from a journalist which ultimately led to his dismissal from his post. So that this is a case of someone saying this is really crazy. What we're doing is borderline not completely unethical. I mean stop and he took provocative steps to stop it. There was another story today. Involving a jared Kushner is Coronavirus tasks in which one of the complaints made against that was that Fox News personalities were able to jump to the front of the line in terms of getting people to hospitals that they deemed helpful. Or you know emotionally close to. So you're absolutely right. There's a horrific way to do this. In the trump administration is basically hitting every which is cronyism favoritism and dismissal. The science I want I want play. What a bride had to say about H- dismissal the of high hydrochloric being the kind of breaking point in terms of Administration take a listen. Americans need to have all the fax they need to know the truth about this pandemic need to be able to trust their government

"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.

"Lee something the intelligence community does we've become more aware of that in the trump administration because of intercepted phone calls that michael flynn the previous national security adviser had with the russian ambassador sergei kislyak which were picked up in the context of our agencies spying on our adversaries and we spy on our allies to so in the course of doing that these conversations were picked up of these officials saying hey jerry kushner is somebody we think that we can leverage iin the isolated particular areas where the thought that kushner would be vulnerable to influence one of them being the fact that he had no experience in government at all so they were looking to take advantage of his political naievety is it's been described desperate people who've seen this reporting and also he has this very complex set of business arrangements and in particular ah one building in new york that his family real estate company owns on fifth avenue has a very very large debt coming due in january nineteen of about one point two billion dollars officials in the uae specifically mentions that fact as a way that they might be able to exercise some kind of influence over him now we don't know precisely more about the content of this conversation is but i think the implications there is people seeing jared kushner as both a businessman and someone who isn't a senior official position in the white house and could they try to appeal to his business interests in order to get official results now shorn of all context you might read that and say oh my gosh this is shocking but chain wouldn't all kinds of foreign governments discuss for any administration's pointman what any persons areas of wallner ability might be is this routine given the foreign outreach of governments is definitely routine for foreign governments to look for ways to ever lit leverage or influence or manipulate people in senior government positions.

"And former us officials familiar with intelligence reports on the matter the officials said that national security adviser h r mcmaster learn that kushner had contacts with foreign officials that he did not coordinate through the national security council or officially report and that the issue of foreign officials talking about their meetings with kushner and their perceptions of his vulnerabilities was raised at mcmasters daily intelligence briefings one former us official says that special counsel robert muller has asked people about the protocols kushner used when he set up conversations with foreign leaders a spokesman for kushner's attorney called the report inaccurate information and said they won't respond further to unnamed sources peddling secondhand here so let's start with uk lousy not so much to to take in here but i think the at least politically the headline is that for the past two weeks we've been seeing this standdown between general kelly jared kushner and we all assumed bad jared kushner would end up winning out and perhaps he will ultimately the end but this was the most surprising thing at least for me yesterday saying that actually general kelly had prevailed against the president's soninlaw and got exactly what he said he needed what what what should we read more into that the president still has some moves that he can make right at the end of the day he's the president of the united states in the way things are set up he gets the final safe he wants to tell jared kushner classified information invite him into the oval office he can do that that's that's his prerogative and so to the extent that you know this this is the last battle in this war i i think that's probably premature at this point but i do think this idea that jared kushner is conducting essentially a freelance us foreign policy is something that is potentially damaging for him with members of congress with other stakeholders i mean it's really a completely unprecedented situation that you would have our national security intelligence officials getting essentially intelligence product from our agencies that says hey this guy that's extremely close to the president that can walk into the oval office whenever he wants that reads the presidential daily brief is somebody that our foreign leaders are actively trying to exploit so much so.
