From Brook Seipel’s article at thehill.com:
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) on Friday called for President Trump to fire his son-in-law Jared Kushner from his position as a White House senior adviser in light of reports that he attempted to establish a private communications channel between the president’s transition team and Moscow.
“Trump has no choice but to immediately fire Kushner, whose failure to report this episode on his security clearance is reason enough for a criminal investigation,” DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson said in a statement.
“The next question is whether the President authorized this, because no one stands between Trump and Kushner on the chain of command.”
I have two questions for the hopelessly ridiculous DNCers who put out this demand: When Barack Obama was President did he have a private – i.e. secure, non-public – channel of communication with Russia (not to mention every other major country)? Did anyone at the DNC, or RNC, or any other NC you can think of, demand that the person responsible for putting it in place be fired?
I didn’t think so.
It is exactly this kind of idiocy that put Donald Trump in office and, assuming it continues, will re-elect him in 2020.
