Kushner is in water so deep that it’s hard to remember which crime is actively being investigated. It appears that one of Kushner’s financial bankrollers is being held by law enforcement officials because of money laundering.
According to the New York Times, Beny Steinmetz has been detained in Israel. He and his family have funded many of Kushner’s Companies, so now it would appear that multiple money laundering investigations are swirling around Kushner. Even if Kushner is not implicated in this particular situation, the key is what information Steinmetz may hold.
If he tries to make a deal to save himself, he may be willing to disclose financial information directly related to Kushner. Working so closely with Kushner for many years may end up paying off for him in the end since we know the feds are already trying to nail down Kushner for his own pending charges.
Here’s where it gets fishy.
Palmer Report points out, “it was announced that Jared Kushner will be traveling to Israel on a strangely timed and obviously ill suited attempt at brokering Middle East peace (link). If this is a coincidence, it means Kushner now faces the ignominy of traveling to a nation that just snatched up his own bankroller for alleged financial crimes. And there will be others who will ask if perhaps Kushner had truly been planning to travel to Israel to meet with or assist Steinmetz.”
Either he was planning to meet with Steinmetz before he was detained or maybe he’s going there to remind him to keep his mouth shut. Regardless, things are heating up for Kushner and the rest of the Trump family.
It’s only a matter of time before the hammer falls of each and every one of them. As they say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
