Russia-gate has turned it's eye toward Trump's son-in-law. He's been up to this mess to his armpits for a while, but now there are specifics.
The FBI is reportedly looking into Trump's son-in-law and unpaid advisor, Jared Kushner because he was looking for a back channel direct to Valdimir Putin BEFORE Trump was president according to a New York Times article.
Once again, I can't figure out why the word "treason" isn't being used. Opening a back-channel to another country when you are in charge of that country is one thing. Opening a back channel to an enemy, when you aren't in charge of a damn thing and have no authority at all, this ought to be called "treason." (when you try to screw up our country's elections = enemy)
If President Obama's black self had tried such a thing, they'd have put him to death by now.
But the funniest thing about this is that Trump is SUPPOSEDLY upset with Kushner over the other thing they found out about Kushner's Russia ties.
The greatest sin that Kushner has committed so far, in Trump’s eyes, was a video clip that came out earlier this month of Kushner’s sister, , offering EB-5 visas to Chinese investors willing to fork over a hefty sum to the family real estate business (which Kushner has stepped back from due to his White House position). It made it seem as though she was hoping to profit off of Trump, and it undermined his adamant stance on immigration laws.
This level of hypocrisy is just laughable.
Trump has taking dignitaries to his own hotels, like Mar-A-Lago, and making money
Passing his budget as is will put a bunch of money in Trump's pocket
Repeal and Replace will put a bunch of tax dollars in Trump's pocket too

Let us review the definition of the word "Plutocracy"
Let's use the word in a sentence, shall we?
We are not living in a democracy but a plutocracy.

Chrystia Freeland, author of Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else, says that the present trend towards plutocracy occurs because the rich feel that their interests are shared by society.You don't do this in a kind of chortling, smoking your cigar, conspiratorial thinking way. You do it by persuading yourself that what is in your own personal self-interest is in the interests of everybody else. So you persuade yourself that, actually, government services, things like spending on education, which is what created that social mobility in the first place, need to be cut so that the deficit will shrink, so that your tax bill doesn't go up. And what I really worry about is, there is so much money and so much power at the very top, and the gap between those people at the very top and everybody else is so great, that we are going to see social mobility choked off and society transformed.— Chrystia Freeland, NPR
Then white supremacy gets the poor whites to follow the rich white one-percenters to their own destruction
