Everything changes. And glossy Vanity Fair doesn't miss a beat.
Circling the Wagons Post Reince Priebus Testimony
Superlawyer (since the "Hogan v. Gawker" verdict) Charles Harder had exited the Harvey Weinstein Legal Dream Team. But soon enough he's back in the spotlight for representing in-distress First Son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Meanwhile, Gabriel Sherman who created his brandname investigating Roger Ailes Inc. has transitioned to focusing his journalism on the Trumpettes. Kushner is, of course, among them.
Sherman is the author of the VF article "Jared Kushner Adds Charles Harder to Legal Team As West Wing Pressure Mounts." Here it is.
As Sherman notes, most of the the folks in the White House didn't return his request for comment. A reply did come from Ty Cobb who went into high-gear rhetoric to deny any involvement by Kushner in whatever.
Essentially, the panic in the West Wing results from what a supposedly angry-at-Trump Administration Reince Priebus testified in front of the Robert Mueller team.
Among the subjects were the decision to fire James Comey. In the loop on that one seem to be Kushner, Stephen Miller, Ivanka Trup, and White House counsel Don McGahn (former Jones Day partner). Long story short, there could be a case being built that the president and his "helpers"could be nailed with obstruction of justice.
As Sherman hammers, Kushner, sources contend, was especially agitated about the role of Comey in a possible investigation of the White House.
Kushner's Other Baggage
In addition, Kushner is also on the hot seat for alleged raising of funds for his real estate business. Sherman reports:
" ... [There is concern] about meetings that Kushner had helped set up with representatives from the Chinese insurance giant Anbang and the Qatari Sovereighn Wealth Fund to raise hundreds of millions to bail out [Kushner's] 666 Fifth Avenue ..."
From Reality Show to Plain-Vanilla Soap Opera
Unfortunately for the Trumpettes, the fun reality show Donald Trump introduced during Campaign 2016 has mutated into a slo-mo soap opera. Constituencies, ranging from media to legal experts, are examining every little move by the Trumpettes. The end of the Trump Administration could come in the form of thousands of long-drawn-out discussions about what happened and when did it happen.
Meanwhile, Sherman probably is figuring out his next blockbuster book. His first had been an expose of Ailes "The Loudest Voice in the Room." It had been so threatening to that media tycoon that his personal public relations representative at the time-Bob Dilenschneider-attempted to distract attention from its publication. Here is the story of that ham-handed caper which positioned and packaged Sherman as The Journalist to Fear.
