Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner claims that investigation was worse for the country than the actual Russian interference.

“You look at what Russia did, you know, buying some Facebook ads to try and sow dissent and do it, it’s a terrible thing. But I think the investigations and all of the speculation that’s happened for the last two years has had a much harsher impact on our democracy than a couple Facebook ads.

Here’s just a few facts about the depth and breadth of the Russia interference effort, courtesy of the Mueller report (and CNN’s Russia expert Marshall Cohen):

* Facebook estimated that the Russian online interference campaign reached 126 million Facebook users via more than 80,000 posts made between 2015 and 2017

* “Individual IRA social media accounts attracted hundreds of thousands of followers,” the Mueller report said. “For example, at the time they were deactivated by Facebook in mid-2017, the IRA’s ‘United Muslims of America’ Facebook group had over 300,000 followers, the ‘Don’t Shoot Us’ Facebook group had over 250,000 followers, the ‘Being Patriotic’ Facebook group had over 200,000 followers, and the ‘Secured Borders’ Facebook group had over 130,000 followers.”

* Through its online presence, Russia helped organized real-world protests in America as early as 2015. Read this on that.

So on their face, Kushner claims are totally and completely ridiculous. This wasn’t some 400-pound guy sitting on his parents’ bed — to borrow a phrase — posting a few random things on Facebook. This was a well-organized and well-funded effort to influence the 2016 election by a foreign power.

And it’s that last bit that makes Kushner’s attempts to dismiss what happened in 2016 all the more laughable/offensive. Here’s what happened: Russia, through a variety of means and strategies, sought to help Donald Trump’s chances of winning and hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances. Russia did so because they believed that Trump would be better for their interests.

Exactly!

The Kremlin went through an immense amount of trouble to defeat Hillary Clinton and to make sure that Donald Trump would eventually be the occupant of the White House.  

And they did that because they believed that he would be more malleable and easily manipulated into damaging America’s reputation and increasing Russia’s influence in the world, and that is exactly what has happened since the election. 

I don’t know if Jared Kushner is just as compromised as his father-in-law but he certainly sounds as if he is echoing the Kremlin talking points.

    Little Jared is an idiot. Why do reporters even bother interviewing members of Don the Con’s family? No rational or sane information will ever be forthcoming.

    Jared Kushner’s dad served time in prison for several convictions. One of these involved him hiring a prostitute to seduce his sister’s husband, having the prostitute record the encounter, then sent the tape to his sister.

      Jared is a weasely, corrupt little piece of shit. He may not be batshit insane like his father-in-law but he’s a Russian and Saudi asset and never had any business in our government. He has all the brains of somebody like Levi Johnston. Imagine if Sarah Palin had won the presidency and hired Levi as an advisor. The entire GOP is lawless and corrupt. I am not sure our country will ever recover from the disaster that is the Trump presidency.

    The House Intelligence Committee reported last year that Russia spent about a million dollars a month on Facebook ads reaching at least ten million users, all of it propaganda swill and mostly on behalf of Donald Trump. But that was just one small part of their operation. TIME helpfully laid it all out: “There was nothing “silly,”
