Jared Kushner is now being investigated by a fourth body, but this one is a little more close to home for the President’s son-in-law. The White House itself is now investigating $500 million worth of loans that Kushner’s business received shortly after meeting with executives from the banking industry in the White House. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains why Kushner’s time at the White House is about to come to an abrupt end.


Jared Kushner, son-in-law of Donald Trump and White House aid/advisor/whatever he is, is now under his fourth separate investigation. And this one is actually coming from the White House itself.

According to new reports, Jared Kushner is being investigated by the White House council’s office for a $500 million loan that his business received from City Group and Apollo Global Management, shortly after Jared Kushner met in the White House with executives from City Group and Apollo Global Management.

So again, the fourth separate investigation that Jared Kushner is now under. The other three being his involvement in Mueller scandal, or investigation excuse me. His involvement in the IRS investigation, and the New York Department of Buildings investigation. So this White House investigation is number four into separate acts allegedly committed by Jared Kushner.

This one in particular though, again, this is the White House itself having to investigate this guy because they think there could be some illegal, or otherwise unethical activity that took place in the White House when he secured those loans for his businesses after meeting with those executives.

Jared Kushner does not have much time left at the White House, I think that’s pretty obvious to anyone regardless of your political affiliation, or your opinion of Jared Kushner. When even your own father-in-law, when his office decides that you need to be investigated because something doesn’t seem right, yeah, I think your time is running out there Mr. Kushner.

And this is exactly what Donald Trump and John Kelly have been wanting. They have plenty of reasons now why they could fire Jared Kushner and not feel bad about it. As reports have shown us for several weeks now, Donald Trump wants Jared Kushner, and some reports say he even wants Ivanka as well, out of the White House. And now that the White House is having to investigate Jared Kushner, I think Trump has pretty solid ground to not piss off his family by getting rid of Kushner, because he is clearly too unethical to hold any kind of office in the federal government.

But again, that would require Donald Trump to have some kind of backbone, or any kind of moral compass, which he lacks both. So, I don’t know if he’s going to fire Jared Kushner, or if Jared Kushner is finally going to resign his position. But I do think that one way or another, whether it’s resigning, whether it’s being fired, or whether it’s being indicted, Jared Kushner’s days at the White House will be coming to an end very soon.
