UPDATE: MAYBE NOT? Kusher named as the senior member of Trump transition team who told Flynn to call Russian Ambassador

Earlier today we reported that Flynn was ready to testify about the Trump transition team instructing him to call foreign diplomats, including the Russian Ambassador, in mid-December 2016 about how they would vote on a Middle East matter at the UN. It’s my guess that matter is the anti-Israel resolution Obama was pushing through the UN as it was happening at the same time.

Well now we know that member of the transition team was Kushner:

Assuming I’m right about this, Kushner being the man behind this would make sense actually. Kushner is said to be very close friends with Netanyahu and very pro-Israel. I’m sure he hated the UN resolution as much as Netanyahu did and perhaps was hoping the transition team could convince some of the big players to vote against it.

And if that occurred as I suggested, I’m sure it would have pissed off Obama royally, which might also explain some of the leaks later.

UPDATE:

It’s being reported by Fox News that the person behind this was KT McFarland…

Was she a senior transition official? I think Kushner makes more sense, but wanted to put this out there just in case it is her…
