Jared Being Naive Is Not At All Credible

With the Jared Kushner/Russia dealings, there is this crazy idea that Kushner can be given a benefit of the doubt - because it was naivete.

Excuse me but that is hogwash.

The biggest reason that this is ridiculous is that Kushner circumvented US intelligence agencies and tried to use the Russian Embassy as the conduit. Even the Russians were surprised by such brazenness.

Another reason to dump the naivete excuse is that Kushner is no stranger to international dealings. He has made real estate deals with a lot of government intervention and with powerful people in other countries.

It is also pretty unbelievable that Kushner forgot to mention his contacts with the Russian ambassador and the VEB Bank - unless he was intentionally forgetting to hide what he was doing.

Thirdly, Kushner says he will cooperate fully. And that, although he now says he had those Russian meetings, he does not "recollect" what the discussions were about. Again, too phony to be accepted.

There is no naive excuse that fits this. There is no good excuse period.

And if Kushner is so willing to cooperate, why doesn't he just hold a public news conference or forum and face the press?

That is the only part of this that would make any sense.
