Kushner Brushes Off Mar-a-Lago Documents as 'Paperwork' Problem

Linkedin Share

For nearly a month now, our national news has been largely dominated by the story of how a vast tranche of possibly classified government documents ended up at Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago, and just how and why the FBI raided the place to get them back.

One of the main cruxes of the issue seems to be former President Donald Trump’s claim that the items were declassified by himself before leaving office.  The government has refuted his claim but provided no public evidence of their work as of yet.

This is perhaps why Jared Kushner, son-in-law of Donald Trump and a member of his White House staff, has dismissed the controversy outright.

“Why did the president take home top secret documents?” Sky News host Kay Burley grilled Kushner.

“You have to ask him that question,” Kushner responded. “But what I will say is that … he was under constant attack,” he added.

“Yeah, but he took top secret documents home, potentially risking the security of the United States,” Burley shot back.

His reply was terse.

Kushner replied: “This seems like it’s an issue of paperwork that should’ve been able to be worked out between DOJ and [Trump]. I don’t know what he took or what he didn’t take, but I think right now that we’re relying on leaks to the media.”

Donald Trump has insisted that there was no wrongdoing on his part, and no charges have been filed in the investigation, leading some to suggest that this is perhaps another witch hunt aimed at gathering dirt for ammunition in 2024.
