Oh My: It Was Trump’s Son-In-Law Jared Kushner’s Legal Team Who “Discovered” Trump Jr’s Emails
“Trump increasingly questions the loyalty of everyone, including his own staff and personal lawyer,” wrote Axios of the Don Jr fiasco this morning. “Every day, it feels like the walls are closing in and it’s unclear who to trust.”
Last night the mystery was who had handed Don Jr’s emails to the Times. Today the mystery is why the Times would specify in its latest story that it was Kushner’s legal team who had “discovered” the emails knowing that everyone will now jump to the not-unlikely conclusion that they were the ones who provided them to the paper.
It’s not the same as burning a source but it’s close. And it’s probably going to make Kushner’s life inside the White House hell.
