Much like his more famous father-in-law, Jared Kushner is also in the real-estate business, a business that requires large sums of financing that banks aren’t always to supply, especially if you have a history of not being able to pick winning building projects.
For almost a year now, we’ve known that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether or not Kushner’s business ties to foreign governments has influenced foreign policy in the Trump administration. NBC first reported in March of 2018:
“Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has asked witnesses about Kushner’s efforts to secure financing for his family’s real estate properties, focusing specifically on his discussions during the transition with individuals from Qatar and Turkey, as well as Russia, China and the United Arab Emirates.”
And now we know the Qatari government did indeed pump money into Jared’s failing skyscraper located at 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Reuters notes:
“The Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) … unwittingly helped bail out a New York skyscraper owned by the family of Jared Kushner.”
Qatar had some very important business before the administration, where Jared serves as a top adviser to the president. They wanted an end to the trade blockade that had been imposed for Qatar’s role in the ongoing civil war in Yemen, a war that is being perpetrated by Saudi Arabia, which we know Trump supports unconditionally.
Did the Qatari’s invest in Kushner’s failing 666 Fifth Avenue property in order to curry favor with Jared, who would then urge Donald Trump to have a talk with the Saudis about ending the economic blockade? If so, that’s a blatant pay-for-pay conspiracy which would include the president and even Ivanka Trump, if she knew about her husband’s deal with QIA.
The fact that the Qatari government admitted their funding of a Kushner property also suggests they know more bad news is coming and they want to distance themselves from the pending shit storm when Robert Mueller indicts Jared.
The Qatari admission is the worst possible legal news in the world for Jared Kushner. And it’s more evidence Mueller can use to prove this administration is selling access and policy decisions to the highest bidder.
