So, turns out that the FBI’s person-of-interest is President Donald John Trump’s son-in-law Jared Corey (of course his middle name would be Corey) Kushner and the investigation is focused, so far, on allegations that Kushner, in December talks with Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak, attempted to establish a back-channel communications channel between Russia and his father-in-law and soon to be President, Donald Trump. As bad, and possibly treasonous, as those allegations are, Mano Singham writes in Jared and Ivanka Kushner—slumlords about revelations actually more likely to shake the White House.

Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner ooze with the kind of upscale celebrity lifestyle as her father. But like so many wealthy people, their luxurious lifestyle is squeezing money out of poor people. Alec MacGillis of the investigative journalism outfit ProPublica has an expose of the practices of Donald Trump’s son-in-law’s real estate business and it is not pretty. It says that the company, through another agency, hounded the poor people who live in the units that qualify for Section 8 vouchers to help pay the rent, taking them to court to squeeze money out of them over the smallest infraction.

Mano concludes: The entire Trump family is rotten to the core. They exemplify the greed and selfishness and the lack of ethics and simple human decency that has pervaded almost the entire ruling class in the US.

I second that conclusion and suggest Gary Trudeau may have an answer to the question: How does the president solve a problem like Jared?
