Bribes work


Quote:
The company controlled by the family of the White House adviser Jared Kushner is close to receiving a bailout of its financially troubled flagship building by a company with ties to the government of Qatar, according to executives briefed on the deal.

Charles Kushner, head of the Kushner Companies, is in advanced talks with Brookfield Properties over a partnership to take control of the 41-story aluminum-clad tower 666 Fifth Avenue in Midtown, according to two real estate executives who have been briefed on the pending deal but are not authorized to discuss it. Brookfield is a publicly traded company, headquartered in Canada, one of whose major investors is the Qatar Investment Authority.


If this was a Clinton WH Advisor and family member, there would be 15 separate House and Senate investigations, people like Joe and Glen would be throwing their laptops at the wall DEMANDING instant impeachment.

Yup, they bailed out kush's dumb silver building with the Mark of the Beast address, and suddenly they're good guys again. No doubt we'll see Saudi Arabia lift the blockade soon.

Outside of politics, this is called extortion, and people go to jail for it.

Another example of not addressing the topic. Instead, Glen goes after the left, and oh look, the Clintons again.

You're not being attacked. Do you have anything to say about the topic though?

Actually I was responding to a comment made by the OP. As for the thread in general how do we know if it is selling influence vs a 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon deal.

While it appears to be the former, it also could be a pay back for something the company did for Brookfield in the past. Unless there is some back door arrangement or he is personally benefitting in some way I doubt Trump gives two craps about a company owned by his son-in-laws daddy.

If it's the Clintons getting a donation that is then given to the poor, that's CLEARLY the Clintons selling access. But if it's countries giving millions to the Trumps, who can tell? Right, glen?

You are such a fucking hypocrite.

It sure matters to Trump, as it's his daughter's other family, and Jared is on of Trump's top Lieutenants.
