Jared Kushner told Michael Flynn to call Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak to advance the interests of Israel, not Russia, according to a new report from Buzzfeed.
WASHINGTON -- Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law, called Michael Flynn in December 2016 and told him to call members of the UN Security Council in an effort to stop a vote on a resolution critical of Israeli settlement policy, according to a person who was present in the room when Flynn took the call.
"Jared called Flynn and told him you need to get on the phone to every member of the Security Council and tell them to delay the vote," the person said.The Obama administration let the UN vote condemning Israeli settlements go through unimpeded.
Nothing Kushner has ever done has been successful.
The Guardian has more:
One reason that conversation is important – and potentially highly problematic for Trump and his inner circle – is because of comments made to CNN on 23 December the day after Flynn spoke to Kislyak – by an anonymous Israeli official.We can be certain no one in the US media will demand a thorough investigation into collusion between US officials and Israel. Currently, 51 Senators -- from both parties -- are signed on to a bill which would make boycotting the state of Israel a criminal offense, First Amendment be damned.
Buzzfeed in their own piece suggested these revelations could only "potentially be relevant to Mueller's investigation into allegations of collusion between Russian officials and Trump campaign staffers."
