… Small wonder he occasionally “forgets” minor details of his many, many important jobs in the Squatter-in-Chief’s administration. Such as sending out invitations and RSVPs for the ‘business conference’ intended to bring peace to the Middle East…
The Palestinians aren't coming, Egypt and Jordan haven't RSVPed, and now it turns out Israel hasn't been formally invited to the conference in Bahrain that's supposed to happen in two weeks. https://t.co/7mPHDSE5ye

… Or mentioning the petty sums — I mean, a mere $90 million, that’s chump change! — from “opaque offshore entities” on his financial disclosure forms…

That would require some introspection on his part, which would be a first. He's transactional with everyone, yet genuinely believes that when powerful people come courting him, it's because they think he's smart and they respect him. So he doesn't see that he's being manipulated. https://t.co/jrE6dJoo10

In light of the news about foreign funding for Cadre, a company in which Kushner holds a massive financial interest, now seems like a good time to re-up this tweet pointing out that Kushner's lawyer claims Kushner is subject to an ethics agreement . . . that you have never seen. https://t.co/zWknY3HlPl

How fortunate (for us Democrats & other sane people) that Jared intends to play an important role in his father-in-law’s “reelection” campaign!
… Amid policy missteps and at the risk of frustrating President Trump, Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has set his sights on what he has described to people as a new problem in need of his attention: fund-raising for Mr. Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
Specifically, Mr. Kushner has cast a disapproving eye on the fund-raising apparatus run primarily by the Republican National Committee, and its chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, whose close relationship with Mr. Trump is said to irk him. At a dinner he organized last month in the White House residence, Mr. Kushner brought together Ms. McDaniel; Brad Parscale, the campaign manager; and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who ran Mr. Trump’s fund-raising in 2016, along with a group of big donors like Stephen A. Schwarzman, the chief executive of the Blackstone Group, to discuss the fund-raising strategy for 2020.
But there was no broad agreement among the people there that the campaign is having any trouble raising money from large donors, as Mr. Kushner suggested…
Despite criticism and defeats, Mr. Kushner has always showed complete confidence in his own problem-solving abilities, in part, associates said, because of the role he played as a behind-the-scenes strategist on Mr. Trump’s winning 2016 campaign. And while many of his colleagues have resented his position, Mr. Kushner’s allies say that he has not been afraid to take on some of the most difficult issues confronting the White House and that he is someone whom Mr. Trump continues to rely on and trust.
Those allies say that Mr. Kushner has described himself as the real force behind the 2020 re-election campaign.
Mr. Kushner speaks every day to Mr. Parscale and, according to White House officials, his headliner appearance at the Republican National Committee’s spring donor retreat at Mar-a-Lago was meant to underscore the large role that Mr. Kushner would assume in planning, coordinating and becoming a public face of the campaign…
Because pissing off pep like Parscale, Mnuchin, and the GOP’s biggest moneybags couldn’t possibly rebound to the detriment the Oval Office Occupant…
