Kushner Asked Lockheed CEO To Cut Better Arms Deal For Saudi Arabia

Kushner Asked Lockheed CEO To Cut Better Arms Deal For Saudi Arabia

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have been given rabbinical permission to fly on Shabbat with President Donald Trump, Politico reported Thursday night, failing to disclose the identity of the rabbi behind the "heter".

Comey has been at the center of a series of damaging leaks from the White House since he was sacked on May 9, including reports that Trump asked him to drop an investigation of Russia's ties with former White House aide Michael Flynn during Trump's first weeks in office. "That's taken off." The White House says Comey's investigation did create unnecessary pressure on U.S.

As the Washington Post reported, the Russian Federation investigation was expected to ramp up in the coming weeks and is still focused on other former Trump associates, including some who played key roles in the 2016 campaign.

During last year's presidential campaign and later during the transition, Kushner was identified by Trump's team as the principal point of contact for foreign governments looking to either congratulate the new USA leader or begin diplomatic talks.




US President Donald Trump meets with Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Minister of Defense Mohammed bin Salman in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, March 14, 2017. Investigators "remain keenly interested" in estranged members of the Trump team like former campaign chair Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. "I faced great pressure because of Russian Federation".

The White House previously stated that Kushner went into the meeting as an acting Trump adviser, not for personal business reasons. However, the idea that all three of the above are now absent from the White House seems to satisfy many Republicans that there's no "there" to the investigation.

"Mr. Kushner will certainly not be the last person the committee calls to give testimony, but we expect him to be able to provide answers to key questions that have arisen in our inquiry", said a statement from the Senate intelligence committee.
