Saudis Poised To Invest In Jared Kushner Fund After Cozy Trump White House Ties: Report
The potential deal raises serious ethical issues as Kushner approaches officials he dealt with as a senior White House adviser as recently as January.

Saudi Arabia’s $450 billion Public Investment Fund is negotiating with former White House aide Jared Kushner for what could be a sizeable stake in his new fund, The New York Times reported.
The potentially lucrative interest follows very favorable treatment of the kingdom by Donald Trump’s White House.
Kushner’s appeal to the Saudis and other Middle Eastern sovereign wealth funds is raising “questions about ethics” as Kushner seeks money from the same officials he dealt with as a representative of the U.S. government as recently as January, the Times noted.
The issue becomes even more troubling if Kushner’s father-in-law runs in 2024 and even wins the White House again.
Sources told the Times that the real estate developer hopes to raise an amount in the “low billions” by early next year for his new investment fund, Affinity Partners.
He hasn’t had much success so far raising money in the Middle East — except with the Saudis, sources told the Times.
Kushner refused to discuss details about his new company with the Times.
The Trump White House had a particularly close relationship with the Saudi leadership, and Kushner cultivated a friendship with de facto leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Kushner arranged for Trump to make his first trip abroad to a summit in the Saudi capital of Riyadh. That same year Kushner helped negotiate a hugely controversial agreement for Saudi Arabia to buy billions of dollars worth of American weapons while the nation was bombing civilians in Yemen.
Later, when Kushner was asked to intercede with Trump to get him to back off pushing then-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the presidential election results, Kushner said he had no interest or time because he was working on “Middle East peace,” reported ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.
In other favorable treatment of the Saudi royal family, Trump took no action concerning the murder of Saudi Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018.
Trump suggested “rogue killers” could have been involved in Khashoggi’s death, and never condemned the crown prince — despite a conclusion by American intelligence that he was responsible for the murder.
“I saved his ass,” Trump said of the crown prince last year in an interview with Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward for his book “Rage.” “I was able to get Congress to leave him alone.”
Bin Salman “will always say that he didn’t do it,” Trump told Woodward. “He says that to everybody, and frankly I’m happy that he says that.”
Kushner remained a loyal champion of his wealthy friend amid condemnation by the international community over Khashoggi’s murder.
Trump’s former Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has also cashed in on Middle East ties, and has profited from investments from the Saudis, United Arab Emirates and the Qataris, sources told the Times.
Note: Kushner and his wife Ivanka made millions while in the White House. She received patents from China while her father was President..... this is grift...... pure and simple Yet, the GOPQ wants to talk about Hunter Biden making a few dollars while his father was V.P......... and the conservative Wall Street Journal...owned by the same person who owns FOX News....... discovered nothing illegal about Biden's employment.......
What you will witness is true grift....... true corruption... with Kushner's Investment Fund...... Does anyone expect anything less than that from the son in law of Mango Mussolini?
1. Well the Charlottesville Civil Trial against the neo-nazis and other white supremacists has resulted in multi million dollar verdicts against that trash..... Do they have the cash... nope....... however..... it warms my heart to listen to these losers turn on one another in court and cry poverty... yep.... the system hasn't worked for those bunch of thugs a number of whom are unemployed.... Wait do you wish to hire a Nazi?
2. Crazy ass Mike Lindell is now blaming the GOPQ for not supporting his supreme Court filing... actually he never filed it yesterday... see this crazy fuck misled all of you who believed his nonsense.... but go ahead and think the earth is flat
3. A Federal Judge in sentencing a Jan 6, 2021, Insurrectionist, placed some of the blame on Mango for misleading the dumb fucks who came to overthrow the government that day.
4. A Federal Judge in Colorado has levied costs against some of Mango former attorneys in the amount of $187,000 for filing their bogus, unsupported by evidence, court filings..
5. The Jan 6 2021, Congressional Committee has sent subpoenas to members of the Proud Gurls and Oath Keepers..... Oh, please don't show up...please...... why a Federal Indictment would do wonders.... forcing you to pay for attorneys or represent yourself... I'm sure your wives would be so happy with you...... :) and maybe you dumb shits would appear and then lie.... hope springs eternal
6. So Rittenhouse says he is not a white supremacist... yet he and mommy went to a bar where members of the Proud Gurls drink... he was photographed with them flashing a White Supremacist Sign..... oh ...wait... what
7.And the jury is in deliberations in the criminal trial of that white trash in Georgia... you know the father/son team who murdered an unarmed black man..... I listened to the cross exam of the son...... I think they should be convicted as charged ...yet... it is Georgia..... anyway the DOJ filed charges months ago...so even if acquitted..... they aren't going anywhere other than possibly to another lockup
8. Stock market near an all time high........ employment is available for those who want it, though the pay may suck depending upon where you are... the CEO of Walmart has thanked Biden and the government for getting some of the supply chain open again..... ignore the book bans in Texas, Ohio, Virginia....... ignore the comments from elected school board members about restoring Christian prayer to schools
9. Did you know there is a driver shortage.... seems tens of thousands can't pass the drug screening.... oh well
But have a good turkey day........
Well today is the day? You remember , right? Mike Lindell, the My Pillow Guy, is filing, along with A.G.s of various states, in the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the election of November 2020 and return Mango to Office! He guarantees a 9-0 ruling

Oh, and he says its all marketing , that is why the news sources fail to tell the truth and why Dominion is suing him.... Yes, it's all marketing... because Lindell, Bannon, Mango, Flynn, Powell, and more are selling a bill of goods... a LIE ...... to the under educated, individuals of this country..... the same ones who now wish to ban or burn books they don't like.... the same ones ones who wish to have a Christian nation...... the same ones who want to execute Jews, Blacks. Hispanics and EVERYONE who isn't white
