Paying tribute to GQ’s “Resistance” movement, in a video posted on Wednesday, Keith Olbermann called for the “immediate arrest of Jared Kushner.” He further said that there was enough evidence to make a strong case against him.
Suggesting that enough evidence regarding Kushner’s implication existed regarded Russian collusion, Olbermann called Kushner out on several “charges.” Jared Kushner is President Trump’s top aide and son-in-law.
“I call for the immediate arrest of Jared Kushner,” Olbermann began. “If he should not be suspected of money laundering, racketeering and influence peddling, then he should be suspected of obstruction of justice and espionage and possibly worse.”
He also noted that anything other than Kushner’s arrest will not be a feasible option.
“There is no other option that can be reasonably entertained,” he added.
The former MSNBC host’s tirade comes as the mainstream media highlights reports that Kushner wanted a back channel communication links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
The Washington Post also reported last week that Kushner had asked for a back channel line of communication between the Trump transition team and Moscow.
The report alleged that US intelligence officials had intercepted discussions of Russian agents telling their superiors that Kushner had asked if a private communication channel could be set up. Kushner had allegedly expressed his desire for secret communication at a meeting held in December at Trump Tower.
“Kushner, his wife, Trump, General Allen, General McMaster, General Flynn, the others, are in their souls if not under the law traitors to this country,” Olbermann concluded in his video.
