Was it Kushner or Trump?

Um, so. Two headlines:

Flynn to testify Trump as president-elect 'directed him to make contact with the Russians

Flynn to testify Trump as president-elect 'directed him to make contact with the Russians': report | TheHill

Kushner Ordered Flynn to Contact Russians

https://www.bloomberg.com/view/artic...contact-russia

What's the real story?? AND do not speculate--provide sources/links.
Thanks from Camelot

And?

What statute would any of that have violated? Obama went on a foreign policy tour in July 2008, before he was even officially nominated.

Both the BBC and Axios had reports where a reporter speculated it was Kushner who had the direct contact with Flynn but both admit it is from general buzz and not a firm on record claim.

I imagine it will come out in due time.

I like that Mueller was chosen to lead the investigation by the man the Republican President hand picked to head the DOJ at the time. It blows away all the fake news about him being biased.

As a national security advisor he is supposed to contact foreign governments and the President in his normal course of duties directs his cabinet. None of that is some sort of crime.

Then why did he fucking lie about it? He is now looking at 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for that lie. It must have been important at the time.

But you like to just ignore that, don't you.

Why did Scooter Libby lie about who told him about Plame? It was a trivial nothing and yet he was convicted for it. It just has to be a stupid little lie or even a mistake.

So what? In this case, with all the media and the fact that a special prosecutor was appointed and all, Flynn knew.

And the Republican President knew or he wouldn't have fired him.

And on it goes.
