Jared Kushner secured $2 billion Saudi investment through MBS intervention: report
It was a good weekend to establish what people are, so we could just haggle the price. There was absolutely nothing about themselves, or the government they claimed to lead, that the former First Family* wouldn’t put up for sale. The big payoff is now to come, thanks to HRH Prince Bone Saw of Saudi Arabia. Of New York Times:
Six months after leaving the White House, Jared Kushner secured a $2 billion investment from a fund headed by the Saudi crown prince, a close ally under the Trump administration, despite objections from the fund’s advisers over the well – based on the agreement.
Roll that around in your head for a while. Money men at a Saudi fund took one look at Jared Kushner’s business plan and were alarmed by the smell of dead fish emanating from it. One of their reservations was about involvement in the public relations disaster that is Kushner’s stepfather. But their main concern was that Kushner had no experience running an investment fund. Basically, his business before ending the drug problem in the United States and bringing peace to the Middle East was to round up as many white elephants as possible loose in the Manhattan real estate market. This gave Saudi beancounters understandable qualms. Luckily for Kushner, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman reportedly canceled the accounting folks and approved the $2 billion kiss to Kushner.
(You may even remember that the former president* told Bob Woodward that he “saved [MBS’] ass” about Khashoggi’s murder, but shame on you for remembering it. As we’ve all been told, Jared and Ivanka were the “restoring influences” on El Caudillo del Mar-a-Lago.)
Meanwhile, back in Washington, it seems the previous administration’s chronic failure* to keep track of potentially damaging documents has struck again. From NBC News:
In a report to be published in the Federal Register next week, the department says the president’s executive office did not submit information about gifts received by Trump and his family from foreign leaders in 2020. It also indicates that the General Services Administration did not submit information on gifts given to former Vice President Mike Pence and White House staffers that year. The State Department said it sought the missing information from the National Archives and Records Administration and the General Services Administration, but was told that ‘potentially relevant documents’ are not available due to restrictions. access linked to the documents withdrawn.
Awesome. Now just to do this job I have to pay for eBay Plus and monitor it 24/7.
Fitzgerald was partly right, as was Hemingway. Even wealthy ghosts are different from you and me. Some of them are real sleazoids.
