Soon after Scarborough heard those rumors, The Washington Post published a bombshell report on Kushner attempting to set up a shady backchannel with Russia prior to Trump’s
If Kushner is worried, that means there are more crooked back room deals to be exposed.
In April, President Trump confirmed that there was indeed friction between his two advisers by telling the NY Post that he ordered Bannon and Kushner to “straighten it out” or he will.
It doesn’t sound like they worked it out.
