Partisan Democrats are making a big issue about Jared Kushner and possible violations of anti-nepotism laws. I couldn’t care less if President Donald Trump hired his son-in-law as a senior advisor in the White House. I normally skip articles like this, however, a name flared out of the pages that I found astonishing. Here is an excerpt from the New York Post.
His hiring of Jared Kushner would not violate a federal anti-nepotism law because a loophole grants the president the authority to hire employees who are family members, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Daniel Koffsky wrote Friday.
The 14-page Department of Justice memo matches the legal argument Kusher’s attorney Jamie Gorelick made to ensure the real estate mogul could get a role in the Trump administration.
Jamie Gorelick! Is this the same Jamie Gorelick who played a central role in one of the biggest terrorist attacks on American soil? Wasn’t she the one who built the wall of separation that kept intelligence agencies and law enforcement from communicating with one another about Islamic terrorists who attacked our homeland on 9/11?
Her perfidy doesn’t end there. She was a central figure in this whole Fannie Mae – Freddie Mac disaster that caused the biggest financial disaster since the Great Depression. This woman pulled in a whopping $26 million in total compensation while she helped engineer the biggest housing bubble in world history. And now she’s employed by a member of the Trump family?
This woman has a gift for graft and schmoozing.
