Burying Junior - Part 10

This little tidbit is in Jared Kushner's written testimony to the Intel Committees:

He didn't read the "long back and forth" which contained the heading words "Russian" and "Confidential".  (Which, by the way, was also the subject line on the email to change the time of the meeting.)

Bye-bye, Junior.  You are on your own.


UPDATE 7/25:

Charles P Pierce was struck by this same shark in the water feel of Kushner's testimony.
There's so much ducking and dodging and weaving and blame-shifting in that one section that you can see how young Jared became so favored within the Trump inner circle. The ability to cram such sheer connivance into every sentence must have been what first attracted Trump to his son-in-law. I suspect that the president* is secretly chuckling at how deftly Kushner sold out the president*'s own flesh and blood. In fact, I suspect Pops positively reveled in what Kushner did. Suck it up, Junior. Deal or die. Being a Trump spalpeen must be like being born into a family of Sand Tiger Sharks, where you have to cannibalize your siblings in order to survive.
