Jared and Ivanka's credit lines have jumped - susnus - 02-14-2018

The changes take Kushner and Trump’s reported debts to a range of approximately $31 million to $155 million from the previously reported range of between about $19 million and $98 million.

the following is sourced from WaPo, following up on the Politico article.


Quote:As an aside, who carries that much credit-card debt? Are the Kushners’ liquid assets so low that their lifestyle has to be paid for by borrowing at presumably outrageous rates?)

Kushner’s financial problems relating to his 2007 purchase of the 666 Fifth Ave. building for $1.8 billion have come up in the context of the Russia investigation. 

Kushner’s financial problems make these contacts all the more troubling. As he was racking up debt, law professor Jed Shugerman tells me, Kushner “also just coincidentally was setting up secret lines to the Kremlin and was meeting with [Russian President Vladmir] Putin’s banker a month after the election. And he just coincidentally was meeting with Russians offering dirt in Trump Tower during the election.” He explains, “Kushner’s massive debts are an important piece of the entire Russia conspiracy on some of the parties’ motives (Kushner, Michael Flynn and Trump) for such inexplicable behavior and such risk-taking.”

In sum, Kushner has huge and growing debt, many suspicious Russian contacts and a close relationship (perhaps second only to Ivanka’s) with Trump. “The more money Kushner owes, especially to lenders or guarantors who do not have America’s best interests at heart, the more he and his father-in-law the President are subject to compromising pressures at best and outright blackmail at worst,” constitutional lawyer Larry Tribe tells me. “The fact that Kushner, without full security clearance, is permitted to peruse the President’s Daily Briefing, containing the most secret information that exists, makes all of Kushner’s financial obligations and debts urgent threats to our national security. This situation is unconscionable.”

Wow. Not terribly surprising, but wow.

Wow! Take a lifetime to figure out just how bad Tang Tweeter and his rogue band of thugs screwed us over!

I heard last night that Ivanka also doesn't have a security clearance.

And I'm pretty sure she's the principle person in the family who is responsible for the money laundering because she seems to head up the tower building enterprise. Those towers appear to be for not much more than aiding a money laundering enterprise.

She pals around with Russian oligarchs, so I really doubt she'd be eligible for one.

When you consider that likely all presidents have confided top secret stuff to their wives and maybe parents and siblings and who knows who else, I have to wonder if we should even care. The main point being, that we should know who we're elected and enough about their spouses and family to not elect them if they're crooks.

So if America goes down because of the Trump family we (collectively) asked for it.

Well, they should care. The Russian mob doesn’t like it when debts aren’t paid.

Oh, I suspect they're paying those debts alright.

I believe it’s called “compromising pressure”.
