Jared Kushner

Just read this in the NYT, though it is from yesterday:

"Two officials who had been handling national security for the transition, former Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan and Matthew Freedman, a lobbyist who consults with corporations and foreign governments, were fired. Both were part of what officials described as a purge orchestrated by Jared Kushner, Mr. Trumpís son-in-law and close adviser.

The dismissals followed the abrupt firing on Friday of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, who was replaced as chief of the transition by Vice President-elect Mike Pence. Mr. Kushner, a transition official said, was systematically dismissing people like Mr. Rogers who had ties with Mr. Christie. As a federal prosecutor, Mr. Christie had sent Mr. Kushnerís father to jail."

I heard yesterday that Trump wanted national security clearance for Jared Kushner, too.

Anyone know anything about him?

When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Re: Jared Kushner

I've read a bit not do not think I know enough to comment much about him.

If he is going to be an Trump's team, he needs a security clearance. I have no problem with that.

Freedman was removed because he is a lobbyist. Trump has said that there will be no lobbyists on his team.

Re: Jared Kushner

I don't think Kushner will be able to work for President Trump, due to anti-nepotism rules.

Re: Jared Kushner

Christie was let go because (a) there wasn't a spot for him and (b) he still has that bridge thing hanging over his head and (c) there are better people in Trumps group than him.

Kushner supposedly has a lot of influence with Trump. I wouldn't doubt it if he gave Trump the above reasons. He may not have a position in the government but he'll have Trump's ear.

Re: Jared Kushner

The below is quoted from a Washington Post article. In addition, Trump has come out and said that he has not requested security clearances for all of his children. He says that is one my lie by the media.

================================================== ====
The ethics rules that apply — and don’t apply — to Trump’s children

There’s been a lot of talk since Friday about President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to give his three eldest children formal positions on his transition team.

Readers have wondered: Is the decision legal? Is it ethical? Does it signal Trump’s intention to involve his children in his administration? And what does it mean that Trump’s children have transition roles just as they are poised to take over the family business?

Let’s clear up some of the confusion. To put it simply, Trump has a lot of flexibility when it comes to staffing his transition. He has less flexibility when it comes to staffing his administration, though ethics experts said it will not be hard for him to bend rules.

To start, let’s look at Friday’s announcement that Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump, as well as Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, will serve on the transition’s executive committee.

This is perfectly legal, though experts said they could not recall a precedent in modern presidential history. (The closest example is Hillary Clinton’s heavy involvement in her husband’s presidential transition after the 1992 election, though according to press reports at the time, she did not hold a formal position as Trump’s children do.)

This is legal because transition teams are not federal agencies. Though they operate with some federal support — office space and millions of dollars from the General Services Administration — they are set up as nonprofit organizations and must abide by those rules.

In short, Trump’s transition effort is not yet the Trump administration. Right now, it’s simply Trump for America, an extremely powerful 501(c)(4) group.
Now let’s consider the possibility that Trump will award his children roles in the administration.

Limitations on employing relatives in the federal government are laid out in 5 U.S.C. 3110, which states that a public official may not “appoint, employ, advance, or advocate for” relatives in “the agency in which he is serving or over which he exercises jurisdiction or control.”

{The article goes on to address more about this.}

I get it like the jokes about Obama being a secret Muslim. I'm sure you thought those jokes based on lies were appropriate too.

Re: Jared Kushner

And Christie prosecuted Kushner's father like 10 yrs prior, (tax evasion, etc), that's why Jared wants anyone with ties to Christie gone.

That is what I understood from the NYT piece, Heartbroken.

It is unwise to make decisions based on vengeance.

The president's transition team needs to be made up of people who can get along and work together.

We really do not know what went down either. Just because the press says something, it does not make it true. We know for a fact that most of the main stream media is anti-Trump and will do anything to destroy him. Our press is now the democrat party propaganda wing.

Re: Jared Kushner

Appointees to President-elect Donald Trump's administration will be asked to sign a form barring them from being a registered lobbyist for five years after they leave government service, officials announced Wednesday -- following up on the D.C. outsider's pledge to "drain the swamp."*

Ele, I think it is hyperbolic to say they are trying to "destroy" him, or that they are a "propaganda wing." I certainly do not see anything in that NYT piece that is trying to "destroy" him.

I would agree most journalists that I heard on election night seemed sympathetic to Hillary, and that their reactions, at least imo, were unprofessional.
