President Donald Trump is strongly considering commuting the prison sentence of Democrat criminal Rod Blagojevich, based largely off the recommendation of his liberal son-in-law Jared Kushner.
“I thought he was treated unbelievably unfairly; he was given close to 18 years in prison,” Trump said to reporters earlier today. “And a lot of people thought it was unfair, like a lot of other things — and it was the same gang, the Comey gang and all these sleazebags that did it.”
Blagojevich was implicated in a pay-to-play scandal where he was discussed selling a Senate appointment with his former deputy governor, Doug Scofield.
“I’ve got this thing and it’s (expletive) golden,” Blagojevich said in a conversation that was secretly recorded by government agents. “I’m not just giving it up for (expletive) nothing.”
The New York Times reports that it is Jared Kushner, who also serves as Trump’s senior advisor, that made the suggestion to Trump arguing that it would help him appeal to Democratic voters. Kushner’s family has long-standing ties with Soros, and his father Charles is a disgraced felon.
“He’s been in jail for seven years over a phone call where nothing happens — over a phone call which he shouldn’t have said what he said, but it was braggadocio you would say. I would think that there have been many politicians — I’m not one of them by the way — that have said a lot worse over the telephone,” Trump said earlier today of Blagojevich.
Kushner has often driven the Trump administration in liberal directions, particularly on the immigration issue. Kushner has been the driver of Trump’s left-ward pivot on immigration policy, as Trump now calls for foreign labor to flood the country by the millions to displace American workers out of the job market.

Kushner brought globalist groups to the table like the Koch-affiliated Libre Initiative, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the League of United Latin American Citizens to dictate immigration policy for the Trump administration.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-TX), co-sponsor of the RAISE Act, has blasted the Trump administration’s capitulation as Kushner continues to exert more control over immigration policy.
Too much cheap foreign labor artificially suppresses wages and takes jobs from Americans. The number of H-2B visas for low-skilled, non-agricultural labor has nearly doubled since 2009. https://t.co/eNldRJhNmd

Because of Kushner’s liberal influence, Trump may allow a notorious Democratic Party felon from the Chicago political machine to escape justice in the near future.
Supreme Court Contender Amy Coney Barrett Visits White House as Trump Prepares to Announce Pick
She’s reportedly the frontrunner.
Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.
Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.
Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.
President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.
Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.
Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
