Trumpy son-in-law and part of the “Democrats” group that Bannon derided was apparently on the chopping block by many of Trump’s advisers.
And it was over Russia:
A small group of advisers to President Trump discussed efforts to get Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, to leave his post as senior White House adviser, as the Russia probes appeared to increasingly focus on him.
The meetings took place in early June, Fox News has confirmed.
As the probes widened and continued for months, Trump’s advisers purportedly thought Kushner was becoming a distraction for the president and thought his son-in-law would be more effective on Middle East and other policy issues working outside of the administration.
A Trump supporter said what the advisers, inside and outside of the White House, were trying to do to Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, was “B.S.”
That last quote is a quandary – was it just some random Trump supporter on the street? Was it a White House supporter? Otherwise who cares?!
Anyway, this shows that there *might* be some fire to all the bilious smoke issuing forth from this White House if they were willing to jettison the son-in-law.
ON the other hand, it COULD be that they were exaggerating how toxic he could be to the White House in order to try to get rid of him. All part of the insanity of the Oval Office since el Trumpo got into office…
