Jared Kushner Weighs In on Trump Indictment

Jared Kushner, former White House adviser and son-in-law of former President Donald Trump, commented on the extraordinary nature of Trump’s indictment by a grand jury in Manhattan.

Kushner told the crowd at a Future Investment Initiative Institute event that, as an American, he finds it deeply disturbing that the opposing party’s leader has been indicted. He takes it as evidence of Trump’s electoral power and claims that the Democrats are terrified of him.

Kushner also mentioned how difficult it has been to see Trump’s political opponents breach every standard over the last few years to try to get him. Kushner was with Trump for many of these occurrences. Referring to the now-debunked claims that Trump conspired with the Russian government to assume the 2016 election, Kushner stated that the experience only strengthened Trump and strengthened his commitment to take on significant challenges to fight for change for the American people.

From 2017 to the end of Trump’s term in 2021, Kushner was Trump’s most trusted advisor. Ivanka Trump released a statement about her father’s indictment late last week.

On Instagram, Ivanka Trump gushed about her dad and the United States. She feels sorrow for both and values the voices of all political spectrums that have expressed concern and solidarity.

The statement followed the indictment of Trump by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on unspecified crimes related to the hush money paid to Stormy Daniels in 2016. The indictment will likely be unsealed when Trump arrives in New York for his arraignment.

Bragg, who has been investigating Trump, will reportedly file charges of fabricating company records against the ex-president because he allegedly misclassified the payment as a business expense when it should have been a campaign expense. Bragg is using an unproven legal theory to charge Trump with a felony, which has been criticized by a number of legal experts, including former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz.

On Friday, Trump’s attorney Joe Tacopina told the media that the former president plans to file motions to dismiss the lawsuit. He added that Trump will not be handcuffed, and there is zero chance he will accept a plea bargain.

Tacopina told the press that this has never happened before in the country’s history. Aside from an arraignment, he has yet to learn what will happen, but he is aware that roads will be blocked off and the courthouse will be closed. He continued by saying that they would go to court at some point, plead not guilty, and begin discussing the filing of motions, which would be done immediately and aggressively with regard to the legal validity of this case.

Ivanka Trump said last year, after her father announced his third presidential run, that she wouldn’t be helping with the campaign or getting involved in politics. She clarified that she would continue to love and support her father no matter what but that she will no longer do so in the political sphere. She went on to say that she will never forget the privilege of serving the American people and that she is immensely proud of the outstanding achievements of the Trump Administration.

Later in 2022, Trump revealed on Truth Social that Ivanka and Kushner would not be involved in his 2024 Presidential campaign. He declared reports that claimed they would be involved were false at the time.

Trump wrote on his social media platform that he specifically asked Jared and Ivanka not to be part of his 2024 Campaign for President, contrary to fake news reports.
