The One Thing the "Intelligence" Community Leak About Kushner Does Tell Us About Team Trump

By Robert Wenzel - May 31, 2017 at 09:24AM


As I have previously reported, the Washington Post has published a story that, in early December, Jared Kushner and Russia’s ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s presidential transition team and the Kremlin.

No doubt the WaPo story is coming from US intelligence sources. In the story, WaPo told us as much:
Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reported to his superiors in Moscow that Kushner, son-in-law and confidant to then-President-elect Trump, made the proposal during a meeting on Dec. 1 or 2 at Trump Tower, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by U.S. officials. 
So what does this definitely tell us?

That there were no back channel communications between the Trump campaign and the Russians during the election. Otherwise, Kushner would not have brought the topic up in such a ham-handed fashion in December. He would have used any previous back channel communication method to discuss more security for the communications. Not a new discussion with an apparently surprised Russian Ambassador Kislyak.

The "intelligence" community that hates Trump just gave Team Trump some pretty decent evidence that there was no back channel communication between Team Trump and Russia during the campaign. This is a bizarre attack on Kushner and Team Trump.

There is no logic here, It is just throwing scare headlines up against the wall.

Further, as I have 
previously pointed out, not even the masses believe a back-channel is going to do anything but ease tensions with Russia:
They don't really think Trump is going to sell Putin Detroit. They don't really think Trump is going to cut Putin in on withholding tax income. They don't even think that Trump has secretly agreed to put Putin on US social security.
Kushner was setting up a back-channel to talk a deal over Syria and sanctions on Russia, These are noble causes to discuss. They are not unsimilar to back-channels in previous administrations.

And, I repeat, if Kushner was just attempting to set this back-channel up in December, the "intelligence" community leak just proved that the Trump administration did not have a back-channel before the election.
