Jared Kushner Under Investigation For Illegally Accepting Money From A Foreign Government

The late Martin Luther King Jr. one wrote something that wound up becoming a favorite expression of former President Barack Obama:

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

In other words, it may take a long time for change to be seen, but eventually things do turn for the better, and we simply have to be patient enough to wait for that day.

In a sense, that day may have just arrived, because top White House adviser Jared Kushner is in very hot water, suspected of possibly accepting money from a foreign country to save his failing real estate empire in exchange for favorable foreign policy decisions from the Trump administration.

Law & Crime reports:

“Proving that the thicket of congressional and law enforcement investigations circling around outgoing President Donald Trump’s family will not end with his White House term, Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden and Rep. Joaquin Castro opened up a new probe on Wednesday focusing on Jared Kushner’s potentially compromising dealings with Qatar and other Middle Eastern governments.

“The latest investigation looks into whether Kushner pushed his father-in-law Trump to support a Qatari blockade while Kushner Companies sought a more than billion-dollar bailout from officials from that and other Middle Eastern governments.”

Maybe you’re wondering, Why even bother investigating this in the final days of the Trump presidency? Mainly because what can be found from this probe can serve as the basis for a criminal referral to the Department of Justice when the Biden administration takes over on January 20.

Yes, the arc of the moral universe is indeed long, but in time karma catches up with everyone.
