Another Washington Post anonymously sourced hit job dropped on the Trump White House — this one about Jared Kushner asking the Russian ambassador for a “secret channel.” It dropped just in time to greet the president upon his return from his first international trip and the very day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions pledged to “put an end to” the rampant leaks coming from within the government. The leaks that produced this story, according to sources, came from inside the West Wing.
The latest claim stems from a supposed meeting that President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn had on Dec. 1 or 2 with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. According to The Post, U.S. officials who reviewed intercepts between Kislyak and Moscow saw that Kushner requested “a secret [communications] channel with Moscow rather than relying on traditional government systems.”
This alleged request by Kushner, the White House aide who conceived of and planned Mr. Trump’s just-concluded, multi-country trip, “adds to a broader pattern of efforts by Trump’s closest advisers to obscure their contacts with Russian counterparts.”
Interestingly, The Post apparently received its tip about this story through an anonymous letter it received in December — whose full contents the newspaper has not revealed. The letter stated, in part, that Kushner raised the issue with Kislyak about setting up the secure communications channel. It also discussed “arranging a meeting between a representative of Trump and a ‘Russian contact’ in a third country whose name was not identified,” the Post story reports.
Inside the West Wing, discovering and prosecuting those responsible for the constant drumbeat of leaks has become a top priority. While most of the focus has been on current U.S. intelligence personnel and former Obama Administration officials, there is now increasing concern that some of the recent leaks involving Kushner could be coming directly from the West Wing.
