    Jamie Raskin Asks Republicans To Subpoena Jared Kushner’s Investment Firm

    WASHINGTON — As Republicans search for evidence that Joe Biden abused his office to enrich his family, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) thinks maybe they should take a look at the Trumps.

    In a letter to House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.), Raskin suggested the committee subpoena Jared Kushner’s investment firm for records related to the “extraordinary funding it received from foreign governments” in recent years.

    Kushner, the son-in-law of former President Donald Trump, created the firm in 2021 immediately after leaving his job as a White House foreign policy adviser focused on the Middle East. Within six months, the company received a $2 billion investment from a fund overseen by the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.

    The deal “raises the significant possibility that there was a large quid pro quo shaping Mr. Kushner’s official actions in the White House, where he helped dramatically recast U.S. foreign policy toward Saudi Arabia,” Raskin wrote Thursday.

    This news story could be a game changer. It might even end the political career of Donald Trump.

    Frankly, this was a poor chess move on the part of Democrats. They should have saved this juicy tidbit for around September of next year, if Trump received the nomination. It would have had a disastrrous affect on his polling numbers.

    Now this may very well open the door for Ron DeSantis to win the Republican Party primary. Who in reality is much more likely anyway, to beat Joe Biden on election night 2024.
