Why Did Jared Ask for a Back Channel? WhoTF Knows?

Who else is awake right now (10:56 pm) and still watching cable news?

Tonight’s bevy of news content has certainly been enlightening. The biggest story, Jared Kushner asking the Russian Ambassador for a secret back channel to the Kremlin, is fucking crazy. It’s crazy because, thus far, it doesn’t make any sense.

For the most part, I have confidence in the Washington Post. I generally assume WAPO stories are well sourced and accurate (unless proven to be politico-bullshit). But, if true, then why? Why the hell would Kushner ask the Russians to set up a secret line of communication….from the Russian embassy….using Russian equipment?

I’ve been cable news surfing for a few hours and have yet to hear a rational pundit suggest a reasonable motive. They seem just as befuddled as I am…..and they know things. I don’t know anything. I’m just a schmuck sitting at home typing up meaningless opinion pieces.

I really don’t have anything intelligent to say about this. I just wanted to contribute some, additional, useless content. It’s all about ego. I have to be part of the conversation, even if I don’t know what the hell is going on and have nothing to say.

I have to admit….and I know this will piss off Senator Lindsey Graham and Congressman Trey Gowdy…..I can’t wait for the next leak. I’m on the edge of my uncomfortable, kitchen typing chair.

Why did you do it Jared? We have to know? Come on. Be a hero. Resign from your job immediately and go right to the press.
