Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner was slammed on Saturday for being "the greatest domestic danger to America."


It started with a Twitter thread by University of New Hampshire professor and Newsweek columnist Seth Abramson.

Legendary constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe saw the thread, and said, "I'm with Seth Abramson here."

"Smarmy, slimy, smiling Jared Kushner of 666 Fifth Avenue is the beating heart of this unprecedentedly corrupt and deeply evil administration," Tribe charged.

Professor Tribe has taught at Harvard Law for 50 years and tried 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court.

"He’ll eventually be exposed as an insatiably greedy Benedict Arnold," Tribe predicted.

Like Tribe, Abramson had harsh words for Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump.

"I'm going to tell you now the chief thing I've learned from many months of research for my forthcoming book Proof of Conspiracy: Jared Kushner is now the greatest domestic danger to America," Abramson argued. "And many former US government officials know for a fact that what I've just said is true."

"Whatever you think VP Dick Cheney was to President George W. Bush, take that, make it three times as sinister, make Bush ten times more sociopathic and a devout criminal, and make Cheney stupid, venal, and entirely dismissive of our rule of law and you get what Kushner is to Trump," he continued.

"Kushner is going to get us into a devastating war with Iran. Jared, singlehandedly. Jared, to make money for himself. I'll say now that Jared more richly deserves to be in prison for the rest of his life than [Paul] Manafort, and Manafort richly deserves it," Abramson argued. "That's how bad this is."

"Whether you realize it or not, Kushner having top secret security clearance is the issue in American politics right now, as Trump circumventing our intelligence community to give his son-in-law that access is the shibboleth that made the current danger to America possible," he said.

"We need whistleblowers to blow their whistles now," Abramson concluded.
