Jared Kushner Now Under FBI Scrutiny in Russia Probe, Say Officials

come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple U.S. officials told NBC News.

Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said.

That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him.

The FBI's scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau's sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but on the cusp of the Trump family circle.

The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person of interest," but did not name the person.

The term "person of interest" has no legal meaning.

The officials said Kushner is in a different category from former

Trump aides Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, who are formally considered subjects of the investigation.

Records of both Manafort and Flynn have been demanded by grand jury subpoenas, NBC News has reported.

RIt is not known whether Kushner has received any records requests from federal investigators. Also unclear is what precisely about Kushner's activities has drawn the FBI's interest as it investigates whether Trump associates coordinated with the Russian campaign to interfere in the election. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is now leading the probe as a special counsel.

Court says essentially that Trump is not be believed. Will Supreme Court conclude the same?

A substantial majority of the judges who sit on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit in Richmond delivered a rather remarkable judgment last week: The president of the United States is not to be believed.

Will the Supreme Court conclude the same thing? And by “Supreme Court,” we mean “Justice Anthony M. Kennedy,” whose name was invoked 23 times in the 205 pages of majority opinions, concurrences and dissents in the appeals court’s 10-3 rejection of President Trump’s revised travel ban.

Former U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Robert Gilbeau, 56, of San Diego,

pleaded guilty last year to lying when he told federal agents he had not

received gifts from Malaysian businessman Leonard Francis, the owner of a Singapore-based defence contractor. 

Gilbeau, who became the first active-duty admiral ever convicted of a federal crime, was subsequently 

demoted to captain. 

Gilbeau's case is part of a long-running criminal probe known as the Fat Leonard case, in reference to a nickname for Francis.

"It is truly a sombre day,” acting U.S. Attorney Alana Robinson said in a statement. which makes this individual a perfect employ to work for this Trump Administration.

Trump himself...

has paid $millions in Fraud,

his first national

security officer is now under investigation for miss representation and possible spying for Turkey and Russia,

his most trusted advisor is a right wing racist,

he is surrounded by a legion of individual's who are

willing to lie for him at the drop of a dime, and he demands

loyalty from anyone and everyone who serves und

er his direction.

Perfect job for a former Naval Admiral willing to take Bribes, which suggests that he is a man of flawed character....

Perfect for the Trump Admin.

Congressman calls for Trump's impeachment on House floor

Long ago, words like these were words that would cause a person This is about my position. This is about what I believe. And this is where I stand. 
I will not be moved. The President must be impeached," Green said on the floor. 
For those who do not know, impeachment does not mean that the President would be found guilty. to raise his fists in preparation for a fist fight,

when others would charge one of not having these qualities infused in their person.

Today..., these words are the words that I could not even imagine using when describing those elected and are sitting in the seats of power and authority, because they have sold their

souls to the highest bidder, and they work only for the next

gift, or lobbyist who would rub their ego.

We need people of substance to walk the halls of power, people who are in contact with the homeless man on the sidewalks of

City Hall, sleeping.

You walk past the homeless each day,

House majority leader to colleagues in 2016:
‘I think Putin pays’ Trump

The Best Jokes are the "Truth"....

Was it a "Joke" or was it the "Truth"?

House majority leader to colleagues in 2016: ‘I think Putin pays’ TrumpIf it was a "Joke", why would House Leader

"Paul Ryan" demand all that heard the "Joke", keep the details of the "Joke" a secret?

What we do know... Trump has lied several different times, about his lack of any type of interactions with any Russian Entity, lies that equate to his lie regarding his knowledge of any racist entities when his father was arrested for KKK activities in the 1920's.

Now that an independent investigator is handling the Trump world, a lot of things will come to light, and fraud isn't something that need to be determined by Trump, because he has already paid $25 Million for one instance of fraud.

STAND BY FOR THE STAND BY.

The only question is yet to be determined....

will those in the seats of authority, have the balls to actually

"Charge Trump" for crimes that you and I would be charged for.

Manafort Money Laundering, per Leo Gettz,

Lethal Weapon II

The Money Laundering Techniques, as described by Leo Getz, is the A Manafort spokesperson said the $3.5 million loan was repaid in December, but also said paperwork showing the repayment was not filed until he was asked about the loan by NBC News.

News of the missing documents comes as New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is taking a "preliminary look" at his real estate transactions, including the $3.5 million loan, according to a source familiar with the matter.technique of taking a loan, with the understanding that loan was never intended to be paid back, and oh by the way, the individual, can claim interest paid on the loan that he/she never paid.

This is exactly what Mr. Manafort is/has done, and there ain't no 2 ways about it.  This is standard in the industry of big money and property, because it is the best way to clean illegally attained money...

Flight Cancellations Cause Chaos at Florida Airport

We continue to allow ourselves to be treated in the manner that Twenty-eight more were canceled by Tuesday morning.

"This slowdown is in direct violation of the [Railway Labor Act], which prohibits work slowdowns and strikes during collective bargaining negotiations, as expressly recognized by a series of court decisions, including by this Circuit in Delta Air Lines v. Air Line Pilots Association, International," the lawsuit states.businesses choose to treat us, rather than, demanding that we be treated like a person that is spending their individual hard earned money.

The Airline Industry, have treated citizens like worthless objects for decades, to the extent that they have reduced your leg room that allows them to pack you into a flight that limits your individual space to the size of a 2X2 tube,

and citizens pony up valuable cash for this mistreatment, as if citizens have no choice.

Here's your solution...,

choose not to use a specific airline if "1" employee doesn't observe the required politeness that you deserve as a customer.

Choose not to fly out of a specific airport if "1" instance of discomfort takes place.

By choosing not to fly on a specific airline, or fly out of a specific airport, you retain your individual power, and you remove your notch of funding from the airline and airport.

Enough people choosing not to be subjected to piss poor treatment, the power will return to the customer.

GOP Health Bill Leaves Many 'Pre-Existing Condition' Protections Up To States Listen· 3:30

Never Believe in anything that

The reality for every American Citizens is,

When Ryan was born in 2014, his mouth wasn't connected to his stomach. It's a condition known asesophageal atresia. After three months in a hospital in St. Louis, the family flew to Boston, where Ryan had surgery.

The surgery worked. Ryan is active and can eat normally — he had two big pieces of fruit leather and some crackers in the 45 minutes I was there. But all that time in the hospital was expensive.

you will need medical attention at some point in your life.

When "you" are delivered to the doors of your local hospital, or when you drive your self to the local hospital,
then and only then, will you become intimately introduced to the quality of your health care, and the quality of the entire

U.S. Health Care System.

At that time, it won't matter where you stand on this health care issue, and at that time, it won't matter if you have obamacare, or what ever the label is, for the type of health care that you have,

because, if you don't have health care, then your subjected to the system and all of it's flaws, without any means of defense.

If you have a health care of any kind, when you find yourself in the system, you will see all types of people who are being subjected to the same system of debacle that you are,

and just as they are nothing more that a number on a peace of paper, so to, will you become, nothing more than a number.

Brandon Jacobs vows to 'expose' Jim Harbugh, get him fired

Brandon Jacobs seems to still be quite bitter about his time with the San Francisco 49ers under Jim Harbaugh. Days after he ripped into Harbaugh for having “no idea” about football, the former NFL running back tweeted a message saying Michigan will fire Harbaugh by the time Jacobs is done exposing him.

This all got started when Jacobs made an appearance on CBS Sports Radio. “Jim, I had a lot of respect for Jim when I was there – before I got to know him,” Jacobs said on CBS Sports Radio. “I enjoyed my time there, but we didn’t see eye-to-eye. “I knew a little bit more about football than what they led on,” Jacobs continued. “Going somewhere where they don’t have route conversions into certain coverages was just absurd.

Former Colt scammed out of $4.5M by financial advisor

Many players entering the league will hire professionals to handle several aspects that come with playing in the NFL. Most of them hire a manager to look after the millions of dollars they make but sometimes it can come back to bite them. It doesn't happen often but in the case of former Indianapolis Colts defensive end Cory Redding, he was scammed out of roughly $4.5 million from his financial advisor. Even though the court documents identify Redding as "Individual A," the Indianapolis Star identified found that it was, in fact, Redding. Redding was scammed by his money manager, Kenneth Cleveland, of Agoura Hills, Calif., who used almost half of that total in a Ponzi scheme.

Duterte jokes about rape while rallying troops to fight militants
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, giving a pep talk to his troops in the country's restive south, exhorted the soldiers to go all out in fighting Islamic militants and joked that under martial law they could even commit rape with impunity.

"The consequences of martial law and the ramifications of martial law, I and I alone would be responsible.

Just do your jobs, I'll take care of the rest," he told his soldiers on Friday while visiting Iligan City in the country's Mindanao region.

Duterte jokes about rape while rallying troops to fight militants

Character Traits of A Sociopath Criminal

RAPE in any War Torn Countries, is the worst type of act of war, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, giving a pep talk to his troops in the country's restive south, exhorted the soldiers to go all out in fighting Islamic militants and joked that under martial law they could even commit rape with impunity.and this fact, known by all nations on earth, is being openly welcomed by Duterte.

In fact, it is Duterte who suggest that "RAPE" is OK, and the military personnel would not be prosecuted if the military personnel actually, carries out an act of RAPE?

When Trump calls to speak worshiping words to Duterte and his successful ways in which he identifies and removes drug users, and drug dealers in the Philippines,

it sends a signal to Duterte that his criminal behavior is welcomed and desired.

We continue to fail in ensuring that leadership..., means removing those with flawed character traits in the seats of power, and/or are controlled, held accountable and/or, removed when they act poorly.

Dueterte ought to be held accountable for statements that suggests that Rape is "OK" if his troops are carrying out missions.

Abbott’s office did not immediately respond to TIME’s request for comment.

The comment comes shortly after another incident of violence against a reporter.

A Guardian reporter said that Montana Republican Greg Gianforte "body slammed" him and broke his glasses Wednesday night. Gianforte, who won a special election for Montana’s congressional seat on Thursday night, was charged with misdemeanor assaultIf you are unable to hold your family members accountable for their flawed behavior, then you will never be able to demand quality leadership traits in those who you vote to lead your

City or County.

If you are not capable of telling the truth..., when the consequences of telling the truth..., will net you nothing more than a harsh look from those whom you have spoken the truth too...,

then you will never be capable of demanding the truth... be spoken  by those who wield the enormous power of an office that will define how police officers interact with you

when you are pulled over.

Trump lawyer in Russia probes has Russian ties of his own

A personally experienced fact of life that validates the well discussed The prominent New York lawyer expected to represent President Donald Trump in the widening Russia probes has professional connections of his own to Moscow, which could create yet another public-relations problem for the White House.point that, in this one life time, "Who You Know" will often out weight "What You Know", in a manner that can benefit you in a way that will cause you to attain wealth and success.

For Trump, it is "Who He Know" that is driving the negativity into his presidency, specifically, because, in this case,

it is who he know who are more likely more apt to be corrupt, which, as exampled in the above fact, Who Trump Know,

directly tie him to "Criminal Activity", or those who participate in the many different forms of

"FRAUD & CORRUPTION"

It isn't speculation when one considers whether or not Trump has participated in acts and actions of "Fraud or Corruption" because he has already paid out a $25 Million FRAUD case associated with his Business College, which nets him high credentials with those like the Russian Mafia.

conditions will pay more for health insurance that covers less under the House-passed legislation to replace the

Affordable Care Act — if they’re able to get insurance at all, the Congressional Budget Office concluded in a new report on the bill.

The budget office estimated how many states would take the American Health Care Act's option to waive two key provisions of the ACA: The prohibition on charging people more if they have preexisting conditions and the requirement to cover

"essential health benefits" including maternity and

Obama photographer keeps trolling Trump

Washington (CNN)Former White House photographer Pete Souza has mastered the "show, not tell" technique in outlining the stark contrasts between former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. Since Trump took office, Souza has routinely posted images from his time documenting Obama's White House on his personal Instagram account, which currently has 1.3 million followers. And the photos Souza shares seem to be anything but random. Through his photos and their accompanying captions, Souza has taken a number of thinly veiled shots at the Trump administration. Here are some of his more notable posts where he appears to be trolling Trump:

Trump praises Duterte's deadly drug war in leaked transcript

(CNN) — US President Donald Trump told his Philippines' counterpart that "I just wanted to congratulate you because I am hearing of the unbelievable job on the drug problem," Trump said in the April 29 phone call, according to a leaked transcript of the conversation with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte published by the Intercept and also obtained by The Washington Post and The New York Times.

"Many countries have the problem, we have a problem, but what a great job you are doing and I just wanted to call and tell you that."
