This Thanksgiving, we can be thankful for the fact that Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor is reportedly worried that the Mueller investigation will “get” Donald Trump. In an exposé for Vanity Fair, Gabriel Sherman shared the news.
“Despite Kushner’s efforts to project confidence about Robert Mueller’s probe, he expressed worry after the indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates about how far the investigation could go. “Do you think they’ll get the president?” Kushner asked a friend, according to a person briefed on the conversation,” wrote Gabriel Sherman.

The article also claims that a high-level Republican said that Jared’s wings have been clipped by Chief of Staff John Kelly.
“Kelly has clipped his wings,” one high-level Republican reportedly said.
Instead of focusing on a super-human agenda to reinvent government, Kushner will be focused on Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Kushner still seems to be stirring up controversy in that regard. Kushner took an unannounced trip, Saudi Arabia, just as the first of the Mueller indictments were being announced, and right before news that Mohammad bin Salman led a massive purge of political adversaries and fellow royalty. Now the optics look bad for Kushner because he was reportedly up to the wee hours of the night discussing important matters with Salman.

The report that Kushner is worried Mueller will get Trump comes as two U.S. Senators claimed Kushner failed to disclose emails he received from Donald Trump Jr. about Wikileaks as well as “a Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite” in 2016.
Kushner has reportedly denied, under oath before congressional intelligence committees that he was familiar with any attempts by WikiLeaks to contact the campaign.
A Russian banker and former Russian senator named Aleksander Torshin who is reportedly close to Vladimir Putin requested by email that the Trump campaign attend a National Rifle Association event in Louisville, Kentucky in May 2016. Donald Trump Jr. then reportedly sat next to Torshin during a private dinner.
Kushner reportedly responded, “Pass on this,” to the email, but Trump Jr. attended anyway. Congressional investigators are trying to find out why, because Torshin is not the kind of person you’d want connected to the Trump campaign, much less sitting right next to Trump’s son at an NRA event.
From NBC News:
Spanish anti-corruption officials have identified Torshin as a “godfather” in the Russian mafia — something Torshin has denied.
Meanwhile, there are also stories that Kushner is to blame for Trump’s choice to fire former FBI Director James Comey.
Looks like the regime has found the fall guy for the Comey firing:

No wonder Jared is worried Mueller will get Trump. Looks like Mueller is certainly coming for him as well.
Happy Thanksgiving, America.
