Jared Kushner : I've been accused of all different types of things, all have been false


Kushner compared the mainstream media's coverage of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation it to their reporting on the 2016 presidential election, saying the press got it wrong both times.
"Well, look, the media got the election wrong. They thought for sure Hillary Clinton was going to win," Kushner said. "They didn't see what we were seeing out in the country and the field. Their data was wrong, their analysis was wrong and then it happened. Not a single person got fired, not a single person apologized ... I think people sometimes let their hatred for Trump overtake their rational ability to kind of look at things objectively."
"On the other hand," Kushner added, "you could look at it and say that because the media's been so distracted with Russia, Russia, Russia and all of these crazy conspiracy theories, we've been able to operate underneath that level and just be really effective."
So, today is a cold day in government hell when Instagram DMs get a shoutout at a House Oversight Committee meeting — so reader, you'll want to grab your winter coat.
On Tuesday, while speaking before Committee Chair Elijah Cummings, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expressed her concern over reports that Jared Kushner used WhatsApp to communicate with foreign leaders and discuss sensitive government-related information.
AOC enforced her belief that action should be taken to properly address the matter, asking, "What is next, putting nuclear codes in Instagram DMs?"
 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "Every day that we go on without getting to the bottom of this matter is a day that we are putting hundreds if not potentially thousands of Americans at risk. I mean, really, what is next, putting nuclear codes in Instagram DMs?!? This is ridiculous."
"I think it's important that we refocus what is at stake here in this investigation, in this matter," AOC said.

"We are getting reports from press and from a wide variety of sources ... folks are suggesting that we are conducting foreign relations with folks with security clearances via WhatsApp. I mean, every day that we go on without getting to the bottom of this matter is a day that we are putting hundreds, if not potentially thousands, of Americans at risk. I mean, really, what is next, putting nuclear codes in Instagram DMs?"

The Congresswoman did not hold back her frustration in the nearly six-minute video: "This is ridiculous. We need to get to the bottom of this, and in order to do that, we have to issue subpoenas because people in this administration are not cooperating..."

If it's any consolation, I don't believe Jared Kushner has a known Instagram account. Donald Trump Jr., on the other hand? A huge fan of the IG.

It's probably better to be safe than sorry when the security of an entire country is at stake, though. Perhaps America should start listening to AOC and take action before even more sensitive political information is shared improperly.
