Trump trying to push Ivanka, Kushner out of White House?

Jared Kushner takes a phone call before a Security Council meeting on the situation in Middle East Tuesday Feb. 20 2018 at United Nations headquarters

If you get your news from either Fox News' top-rated prime-time lineup of conservative hosts or the network's influential Fox & Friends morning show, you remain blissfully unaware of the series of scandals that have consumed Jared Kushner, a top White House aide and President Donald Trump's son-in-law, over the past two days.

Some top officials in the Qatari government believe the Trump administration's position on the blockade may have been retaliation pushed by Kushner, who was upset about the deal falling through, NBC News reported, citing multiple people familiar with the matter.

Shortly before the story was published, the Intercept online news website reported that Kushner's real estate firm sought to secure an investment from the Qatari government for a financially distressed Manhattan property owned by Kushner Companies.

The objective of the alleged meetings for Kushner Companies was to secure funding for 666 Fifth Avenue, the company's flagship property that is estimated to be nearly $1.5bn in debt.

But since then, Mueller's probe has expanded to include investigations of consulting work that former Trump campaign officials did for a pro-Russia leader of Ukraine, as well as Kushner's business dealings.

A spokesman for Kushner attorney Abbe Lowell said the report was the "mischief" of unnamed sources conducting a "misinformation campaign" to mislead the news media.

Russian Federation has denied interfering in the election, and Trump has said there was no collusion.

The 5-11 Barkley played at 230 and did admit he's a little heavier than usual. "I try to be a versatile player", Barkley said . The New York Giants are in possession of the No. 2 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft . "It depends upon who's there".

Meanwhille, Kushner Companies LLC is reportedly seeking more than $1 billion in loans to refinance debt on properties in New York City and Chicago.

Commenting on the issue, White House Spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, said that Kushner would continue to play a significant role in the presidential administration.

But the White House has said the blockade was due to Qatar's alleged support of terrorism.

Further, there were reports that officials from four different countries had together discussed ways to manipulate Kushner regarding the foreign policy of the US.

It is against USA law for a government official or someone being considered for a government advisory post to provide advice based on financial interests.

Kushner has lost his access to top-secret US intelligence information in recent weeks because of his inability to obtain a security clearance at that level.
