Jared Kushner theories swirl over $2 billion in Saudi money after Trump Mole claims


Theories about Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, are swirling online after the FBI seized classified documents from the former president’s estate in Florida.

After Newsweek reported that a confidential source informed the FBI of the classified documents that Donald Trump kept at his home in Mar-a-Lago, Mary Trump – Donald Trump’s niece – speculated that the mole could be Kushner.

Kushner and his wife Ivanka, Trump’s eldest daughter, both served as senior advisers during Donald Trump’s presidency.

“I think we have to look very carefully at why Jared got $2 billion,” Mary Trump said, referring to the investment Kushner secured from a fund headed by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about six months ago. after leaving the White House.

Documents seized by the FBI could have the potential to reveal US intelligence sources, including human sources on the US government payroll, Newsweek also reported this week, citing two federal government sources.

This report led talk show host Thom Hartmann to tweet that such information was “exactly the king of the thing for which [Russian President Vladimir] Putin or Saudi Arabia would pay the Trump family billions.”

Hartmann then asked if the investment Kushner received was a cover for a deal between Trump and Saudi Arabia. “Was there a one-upmanship that the Saudis won with their $2 billion in Jared? asked Hartmann.

This theory has been dismissed by some. “These people are crazy,” tweeted Jon Nicosia, president of News Cycle Media.

Saudi Arabia’s investment in Kushner has raised questions since it was first reported by The New York Times earlier this year.

“Perhaps this is how you can profit when your investment experience is thin, but your stepfather may end up in the White House,” Timothy O’Brien, author of TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald, wrote in a Bloomberg opinion piece in April. “It’s also possible that you could get billions for a company with no track record because the White House did the Saudis a favor when your father-in-law was still in the Oval Office.”

But some are now speculating that the investment could be linked to sets of classified documents recovered by the FBI during their search of Mar-a-Lago on Monday, some of which were marked top secret and “compartmentalized sensitive information”.

Dean Obeidallah, a former attorney and host of an eponymous Sirius XM radio show, questioned why Trump had the documents classified.

“To help his personal affairs?” Obeidallah wrote on Twitter. “Did Jared Kushner ask him to take any documents to help his future business affairs? Was he planning to use them to undermine Pres Biden? Was there any information on Hunter Biden that he planned to use as his get out of jail card?

The nonprofit government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington tweeted: “We still want to know what Saudi Arabia expected to get for its $2 billion investment in Jared Kushner.”

Jon Cooper, the former 2016 Draft Biden National Finance Chairman, wrote, “I’ll bet you ten bucks the FBI finds Jared’s dirty little fingerprints all over those nuclear documents.”

“Nobody invests $2 billion without expecting anything in return,” actor Wendell Pierce tweeted alongside a June report on the House Oversight Committee that launched an investigation into the investment.

Wajahat Ali, author and columnist for The Daily Beast, noted in a tweet that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, known by his initials MBS, reportedly bragged “to have Jared Kushner in his back pocket”.

Newsweek contacted a Kushner spokesperson for comment.
