As you probably know, Donald Trump has begun to pardon his cast of villains as he prepares to exit the White House at last. So far he has pardoned criminals who lied to the FBI about contacts with the Russians, tax cheats, and Charles Kushner, the father of Jared Kushner.
You know Jared Kushner. Right?
He’s the cardboard cutout who wishes he could be a real boy who only gained acceptance to Harvard after his daddy donated $2.5 million to the school. He’s the walking, talking case of chronic anemia who was born on third base into a billionaire family but once said that Black people need to “break out of the problems that they’re complaining about” and that Trump “can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”
Turns out that Jared’s father might suck even more than he does.
In case you were not aware of Charles Kushner’s crime:
Charles Kushner was giving illegal campaign contributions to Democrats. When William Schulder, the husband of Charles’ sister Esther, found out, he went to the office of US Attorney Chris Christie with information about the crime
Essentially, Charles Kushner’s brother-in-law contacted authorities about his illegal behavior.
They probably didn’t get along well.
In the midst of that investigation, in which Charles Kushner’s sister and brother-in-law were cooperating, Charles hired a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law. He then filmed the sexual encounter and had the tape mailed to his sister on the day of her son’s engagement party.
His nephew’s engagement party.
All of this was discovered, and it turns out to also be illegal.
Charles Kushner pleaded guilty to 18 counts of witness tampering, tax evasion, and illegal campaign contributions.
Chris Christie – not exactly a beacon of purity – described it as “one of the most loathsome, disgusting crimes that I prosecuted…and I was the U.S. Attorney in New Jersey.”
Charles Kushner served 14 months in prison and has since become a consistent donor to Trump. And obviously, his son Jared is Trump’s sycophant son-in-law.
Take a moment and try to imagine the kind of a person who finds out that his sister and brother-in-law are cooperating with a US Attorney investigation so he hires a prostitute to sleep with his brother in law so he can film it and give the tape to his sister during her son’s engagement party.
Jared must be so proud of his papa.
Ivanka, too, must adore her in-laws. In fact, Charles Kushner once said in a speech that Ivanka Trump only made herself worthy of inclusion in his family by committing to convert to Judaism.
Just the kind of thing you want to hear from a man who hired a prostitute to seduce his sister’s husband.
Welcome to the family, Ivanka!
These are the kind of people who donate to Trump’s campaign and receive pardons for their crimes.
January 20 can’t come soon enough.
