Ken & Barbie Flee? Jared and Ivanka Suddenly Leave the Country as Mueller Drops the Hammer

Mod: By all accounts Special Counsel Robert Mueller has just begun to arrest certain inmates from Trump World, and that could very well include the sparkling beneficiaries of tacky White House nepotism, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump

Jared and Ivanka Suddenly Leave The Country as Mueller Drops The Hammer (Bluedot Daily link): Just before the news broke that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was about to begin making arrests, Jared Kushner left the country with no real explanation as to why he was leaving. The trip was completely unannounced to the public.

While he was back early Monday morning around the time of the arrests (reportedly for a surprise birthday party for his wife), he’s now leaving the country again amid the speculation that Mueller is making even more progress. Is he running? Who knows for sure.

Kushner went to Saudi Arabia over the weekend and the White House said his leaving is part of strategy is to try to draw in neighboring Arab leaders to play a role in Middle East peace. “Jared has always been driven to try and solve the Israel-Palestinian dispute,” said billionaire real estate investor Tom Barrack, a longtime friend and close Trump confidant. “The key to solving that dispute is Egypt. And the key to Egypt is Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia.”

Now, Jared Kushner is he’s headed back there and this time with Ivanka Trump. The timing seems suspicious, to say the least.

The is not a family vacation. The Jewish Chronicle shared that Kushner requested a rabbinical pass to travel on Shabbat to Saudia Arabia. So he’s making this trip twice in one week which raises all the red flags we have.

The first trip may have been out of fear of arrest (despite the White House’s explanation as to why he went), which could mean there are more arrests coming this time around too.

It could also mean he’s doing more business deals that he’s not proud of and this time Ivanka is going to be involved as well.

It appears he’s afraid of what we all suspect; he’s going to get arrested…it’s just a matter of when.

Mod: It is a wonder that more Trump officials aren't taking flight.

Robert Mueller is now expected to arrest these seven people in Donald Trump’s Russia scandal (The Palmer Report link): Special Counsel Robert Mueller has already arrested three people in Donald Trump’s Russia scandal, with two of them under house arrest and a third having pleaded guilty.

Now comes the question of who’s next. Some names are easier to guess than others, based on existing grand juries and previous leaks. But now the experts are focusing on seven names who could be the next to be arrested – and most of them are major players in the scandal.

This week we saw the arrests of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump campaign adviser Rick Gates, along with the announcement of the earlier secret arrest of Trump adviser George Papadopoulos. Now Mueller may be looking to make it an even ten.

A source inside Trump’s inner circle has given seven additional names to CBS News (link). The first two are not a surprise: Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who is the focus of a federal grand jury in Virginia, and Michael Flynn Jr, who is alleged to have conspired with his father.

Also on the CBS News list is former Trump adviser Carter Page, who testified to the House Intel Committee on Thursday that he did indeed meet with Russian government officials during his summer 2016 Moscow trip – and that he notified the campaign about it.

Trump campaign official Sam Clovis is also on the list; he reportedly testified before a Mueller grand jury this week, and it’s unknown if he was testifying in his own defense or in a case against another player. Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen is on the list, which may explain why the Senate Intelligence Committee recently canceled his scheduled public testimony at the last minute.

The two names that may raise the most eyebrows are Jared Kushner and Felix Sater. Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law, and this week it was reported that he began cooperating with Robert Mueller in relation to the firing of FBI Director James Comey, suggesting that Kushner may be trying to fend off a possible arrest.

Sater is a convicted Russian mafia money launderer who conducted significant real estate business with Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump, suggesting that his arrest could be an attempt to get him to flip on Trump’s kids.

Mod: Just so you know, it isn't only Ken and Barbie who may have headed for foreign shores. Donald Trump's rough pals on the Alt-Right have already hit the gates.

American Alt-Right Leaves Facebook for Russian Site VKontakte (The Daily Beast link): After a series of purges on Facebook and Twitter, white supremacists are seeking refuge on Russian social media.

The migration began as early as 2016, when groups like the United Aryan Front flocked to VKontakte, the Russian equivalent of Facebook. But it has amplified in recent months after the white-supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, said Keegan Hankes, an analyst at the Southern Poverty Law Center. Many white nationalists and organizations found themselves banned from U.S. social-media sites after the rallies, which climaxed when a white supremacist killed counterprotester Heather Heyer with his car.

The shift to Russian social media shows just how difficult it is to contain radical groups on social-networking sites. Social networks face the same challenge with many forms of extremism: Jihadi groups, for example, turned to encrypted networks like Telegram after being thrown off Facebook and Twitter. Even there, their channels are repeatedly shut down, only to resurface. And white supremacists, too, are re-emerging on less restrictive and newer social networks.

“After they got kicked off these platforms, they’re finding a new place to live,” Hankes told The Daily Beast. “You even saw some people self-deporting from these websites, going to places where their content would be safer.”

Mod: Strange days we're living in.

  1. You are right Mr. Tattler that these are strange days we're living in. It's going to get a lot stranger and we'll know it's too late when the military starts to turn on the people. The divide and conquer of the United States is in full swing as our enemies seem to have gained momentum in their attack.

    1. Any Bernie Sanders supporters on the Tattler? According to Donna Brazile now we know that Hillary Clinton rigged the Democratic primary guaranteeing that she would win. Don't believe me. Believe Donna Brazille and Elizabeth Warren. Add a number 12 to the list. I think we need another special prosecutor to investigate some real collusion.
      1. Deleting 33,000 emails.
      2. Destroying some of her mobile devices with a hammer.
      3. Her lawyers turning in other devices but without the SIM cards.
      4. Using bleachbit to wipe her server.
      5. Approving the sale of 20 percent of the US uranium reserves to Russia at the same time her husband received $500,000 from a Russian company for a speech and the Clinton Foundation receiving donations of 145 million from Russian government connected entities.
      6. How the Clintons personally made about 200 million dollars over the last 15 years while working in government jobs.
      7. How the Clinton foundation took in billions of dollars from foreign governments who received favors in return.
      8. Mishandling classified top secret emails.
      9. While she was under an FBI investigation, Attorney General Loretta Lynch tells FBI Director Comey to refer to the Clinton email investigation as a "matter" rather than an "investigation".
      10. Bill Clinton meeting on the tarmac for a private meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch just a few days before the FBI Director says she will not be prosecuted.
      11. Clinton colluded with the Russians to create the fake Trump dossier that led to the unmasking of Americans, spying on the Trump campaign and the false appointment of a special prosecutor.
      12. Clinton colluding with the National Democratic Party to rig the election, against Bernie Sanders.
      I know these 12 things don't seem very suspicious but let's see what a Special Prosecutor does with that.

    4. I don't see any denials 8:30. The fact that you don't care about real crimes speaks volume for your character and your hypocracy.

    5. 8:21 keeps using that fake, illogical "whataboutism" argument re Hillary that a commenter cited here last week.

    7. My understanding is that Trump is President, not Clinton, though she did win the popular vote by a substantial amount despite the Trump campaign's collusion with Russians, from whom, according to Trump Jr, the Trump Organization makes most of its money and received massive loans.

      The Russians made Trump and Trump knows the Russians can destroy him financially, which means they can blackmail him at will.

      So perhaps 8:21 can explain why reinvestigating Hillary, who has no power at all, is more important than investigating and prosecuting the apparent crimes of the most powerful person on Earth who can hurt us all.

      Put another way, why does 8:21 hate the United States of American?

    10. Donna Brazile sources Wikileaks throughout her book. Wikileaks, as any informed person knows, is Russia's dumping ground for information obtained through the use of Internet espionage.

    15. I know that is a big deal on Fox News and AM radio right now, but honestly, what difference does it make? What do Hillary's actions have to do with the Trump Treason investigation? Or the FBI arresting Trump associates? Nothing. These are two very different issues, and since Trump is for the moment POTUS, it is the far more relevant topic.

    19. What the Clintons did has everything to do with the Trump investigation. Team Hillary had to blame something for the loss other than their flawed candidate. So they came up with the Russian collusion canard to shift the blame for the greatest loss in political history. The only reason there is a special prosecutor is because the fake Trump dossier paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign was used as a pretext for the unmasking of Americans including those in the Trump campaign. Add to that is when Mueller's best friend James Comey leaked to the newspapers for the express purpose (according to Comey's own testimony) to have a special prosecutor appointed. Low and behold, there is now a special prosecutor and its none other than Comey's best friend Robert Mueller. I smell a rat somewhere and the stench is not coming from Trump but from Clinton and the Democrats. Oh, by the way, what about Debbie Wasserman Shultz and the destruction of more hard drives and continuing to employ that Pakastani family whose security clearance was revoked. What were they trying to hide. It goes on and on and on. The approval of 20% of our country's uranium reserves to Vlademir Putin is about as treasonous as it gets. Is a portion of that uranium going to North Korea or Iran? But hey it was worth it. Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a one hour speech and the Clinton Foundation received more than a hundred million dollars from Kremlin linked interests. No scandal there, right?

    23. Foxfools(™) (i.e. people who are Foxfooled(™)) don't care that Hillary did not approve the uranium deal and could not have vetoed it, or that no uranium can be exported from the US without an export license and that no export license will be granted to export uranium to Russia, N. Korea, or Iran.

  4. Breaking: Trump Japan Speech Leaked to Media

    A copy of a Trump speech to be made in Japan during his Asian trip was somehow leaked to media today. This excerpt may be especially troubling to an audience in Japan. It is unknown at what event the speech will be delivered:

    "Some people are worried I might use nuclear weapons against North Korea. I hate to tell you, but we have tremendous nuclear weapons, and we proved how well they work in a previous war. Devastating! We'll use them again, believe me, if I have anything to say about it. I am the President of the most powerful nation on Earth. If I say, "Nuke them," they get nuked. You people know what I'm talking about from experience, am I right? Right?"
