This week the New York Times dropped a bombshell no one saw coming. Their latest report suggests that Jared Kushner and other Trump officials have been pushing a plan to sell nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. This is the exact reason we don’t want people with financial problems or shady character to be in positions of power.
The fact that members of the President’s family have such high security clearance without proper vetting is very concerning. It’s also obvious that something is wrong with Congress when they’ve known for months that the president is considering transferring this sensitive nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia to benefit the company who does personal business with Jared Kushner and his failing properties. This entire situation is an ethical nightmare.
It’s also alarming that there’s no way to immediately remove these people from their positions until the investigation is finished. The fact that Trump and his minions are still running amuck on behalf of the United States should concern any and everyone.
How long do we have to wait for someone to get a handle on this administration? Will it happen once Trump actually delivers the secrets to the Crown Prince? Or will there still not be enough evidence? Congress is turning the other way while the President of the United States and his family members hand over things to foreign entities. It’s hard to believe this is the mess we’ve found ourselves in, but it’s a terrifying reality.
“This interim staff report was prepared for Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, after multiple whistleblowers came forward to warn about efforts inside the White House to rush the transfer of highly sensitive U.S. nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia in potential violation of the Atomic Energy Act and without review by Congress as required by law—efforts that may be ongoing to this day.”
