‘Tell Me About It’: Hillary Clinton and AOC Have a Laugh at Jared Kushner’s Expense

Earlier this week, Jared Kushner — Trump’s son-in-law and a senior adviser in the White House — was accused of using private lines of communication in his official government role.

According to a letter from the House Oversight Committee, Kushner’s attorney confirmed that he has been using WhatsApp, an encrypted messaging application owned by Facebook. His lawyer even confirmed that Kushner was using the app to communicate with foreign entities and wouldn’t say whether he had been sharing classified information through the app.

During a December 2018 meeting, his lawyer even told lawmakers on the Committee that Kushner “continues to use WhatsApp.”

Per their letter, Kushner’s lawyer also admitted to the Committee that he used a private email from January to August of 2017.

In a reaction to the news, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Hillary Clinton had a laugh at Kushner’s expense. AOC tweeted, “But his WhatsApp” — a spin on the constant Hillary refrain “but her emails.”

Clinton tweeted back, “Tell me about it.”

During the 2016 campaign, President Trump routinely attacked Clinton for using a private email server. At one point during the campaign, he even encouraged Russia to try to find Clinton’s emails. And around the same time he made that remark, Clinton’s email server was hacked.

On Friday, members of the press asked Trump if he knew about his son-in-law using a private messaging app and the president answered, “I know nothing about it, I’ve never heard of that.”

We don’t know who Jared Kushner may have been talking to through WhatsApp but the New York Times has reported that he has been talking with Saudi Arabian leader Mohammed Bin Salman and that the two are even on first-name texting terms. And in 2017, the Washington Post reported that Kushner had proposed setting up a back-channel of communication between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin.

Oh, NOW the Leftists are screaming about the use of a private server because it fits their narrative. Nothing was said while HRC was sending CLASSIFIED material via her personal server; some of which her undocumented maid in HRC’s home was exposed to. Thankfully Judicial Watch uncovered this criminal activity and the Senate Judiciary Committee under Sen. Graham is now investigating. Laws work for everybody; even criminals like HRC.
