Mary Trump speculates that Jared Kushner may be the mystery mole close to the former president who allegedly tipped off federal law enforcement officials about the White House documents hidden at Mar-a-Lago.
Donald Trump’s niece tapped Ivanka Trump’s husband and former White House adviser Kushner when asked in a Friday radio interview on ‘The Dean Obeidallah Show’ for her best estimate of the identity of the mole. The informant would not only have known of the existence of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, but more specifically where they were kept, according to the Wall Street Journal and Newsweek.
“We have to start with who would have access to these things,” noted Mary Trump.
She also hinted that Kushner – who has apparently become increasingly distant from Donald Trump – may have helped federal officials due to suspicions or issues related to his mammoth trade deal with the Saudis after he left the country. White House.
“I think we have to look very carefully at why Jared got $2 billion,” Trump noted, referring to the Saudi sovereign wealth fund’s eye-popping investment in Kushner’s new private equity firm, even though he doesn’t. had no previous experience in managing such an operation. .
The fund is chaired by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who US intelligence says ordered the killing of Saudi Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
“We have to look very carefully at why it [Kushner] has been so quiet for so many months now. And we have to think about who might also be involved in what would require such a big game as delivering Donald… to get out of trouble — or at least to ease whatever trouble they’re in,” she continued. “Sounds like someone in Jared’s position.”
She covered: “I’m not saying it’s Jared, but it could be.”

The former president is currently under investigation for possible violation of the Espionage Act, obstruction of an investigation and deletion or destruction of documents.
TV talk show host Thom Hartmann noted on Twitter that the Saudis – or Russian President Vladimir Putin – would pay “billions” for valuable US intelligence.
Radio host Dean Obeidallah, a former lawyer, apparently has his own suspicions about Kushner, Donald Trump, the Saudis – and Hunter Biden.
