Wait ’til your father-in-law gets home

Until he got back to D.C., I’m offering a guess that Trump had no idea Jared Kushner was in such hot water. I’m guessing this because it’s apparent that the instant he found out, the tweets started — and they were all about leaks, not the treasonous acts Kushner is accused of.  Oh wait.  They were all about leaks except for the one supporting the new representative from Montana who got elected right after assaulting a reporter.  Yes.  That freedom of the press thing is bad, bigly.  Good boy for body-slamming the bastard!

No, definitely Trump had no idea.  If he had, he would not have been able to control himself overseas — not that he did — and not tweet about it.

Now the cat’s out of the proverbial bag, and the shit is hitting the proverbial fan.  All of a sudden Gary Cohn and H.C. McMaster seem on the verge of claiming they have no idea at all who Jared Kushner is, let alone anything about the potential charges against him.  “No comment” has become the official reply of the day.

I guess since we can’t rely on anything the White House says, all we have left is to observe what they do.  And what they’re doing seems to indicate that they are aware that some serious shit has come to light, and there’s no lying or dissembling this one away.  If they are that determined not to tell the truth, the only thing left for them to do is try to ignore the story and hope it’s forgotten in a few weeks, and/or try to distract by expressing a determination to find out who leaked it while simultaneously claiming that the story is false.

In fact, there’s word that Jared and Ivanka seem to think they can wait out the storm by going back to New York for a while.  And what after that?  Do they think they can come back to D.C. and resume looting, lying, spying and sneaking around, and no one will remember anything about the stories of treason?

Good luck with that.
