About this whole Jared Kushner business: I guess nothing coming out of Camp Runamuck should surprise us anymore, so why should appointing your conflict-sodden son-in-law shock anyone? And besides, Young Jared has decided to divest himself of some of his assets—to his Mom and his brother—so we’re all cool with the way the nation’s business gets done, right? From Politico:
“Mr. Kushner is committed to complying with federal ethics laws and we have been consulting with the Office of Government Ethics regarding the steps he would take,” Gorelick said, noting that he plans to file a 278 financial disclosure form, required by Cabinet nominees, and comply with the same levels of transparency voters would expect of regular senior government officials.
Wait. Who’s his lawyer again? Jamie Gorelick? THE Jamie Gorelick, the person whom Republicans virtually blamed for the 9/11 attacks when they were covering the White House’s ass during the 9/11 commission hearings?
