Russia Scandal Explodes: Bannon, Kushner and Flynn Had a Secret Meeting with Jordans King

Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, Mike Flynn and Jordan’s King Abdullah II had a secret meeting on January 5th, 2017, during the time Flynn was trying to broker his U.S./Russia nuclear deal. Flynn claimed he stopped pushing the deal in December.

Buzzfeed broke the news Friday afternoon that Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, Mike Flynn and Jordan’s King Abdullah II had a secret meeting on January 5th, 2017, during the time Flynn was trying to broker his U.S./Russia nuclear deal.

“Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, and Steve Bannon met with King Abdullah II while Flynn was reportedly pressing for a controversial, for-profit deal to build nuclear power plants in the Middle East,” Jason Leopold, Chris McDaniel, and Anthony Cormier reported in Buzzfeed.

The secret meeting took place in the days leading up to Trump’s inauguration. “The meeting — details of which have never been reported — is the latest in a series of secret, high-stakes contacts between Trump advisers and foreign governments that have raised concerns about how, in particular, Flynn and senior adviser Jared Kushner handled their personal business interests as they entered key positions of power. And the nuclear project raised additional security concerns about expanding nuclear technology in a tinderbox region of the world. One expert compared it to providing “a nuclear weapons starter kit.”

2. Why is it considered illegal to meet in secret without the approval of the US Government?

Or is it illegal?

It seems rather dangerous to permit individuals to negotiate nuclear deals on his own without the consent of the US Congress.

It sounds very, very serious to me.

8. Logan Act, from 1799

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logan_Act


The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that details the fine and/or imprisonment of unauthorized citizens who negotiate with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government's position.[2] The Act was passed following George Logan's unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony.

14. Procedure is to squeeze from the bottom, in hopes that small-fry start to talk first...

Procedure is also to start with questions to which you already know the answers in order to catch the suspect in lies. So I've read.

Don't worry -- Ol' Gin Blossom will have his turn.

16. Yes but they didn't even have the authority yet

This meeting happened before Trump's inauguration.

To my knowledge the King of Jordan is an American ally and he's been tight with Obama. So it's possible that he participated in this meeting and didn't know it was illegal. Definitely Kushner, Flynn and Bannon knew because they kept it quiet and never reported it.

Mueller's team is doing a great job hunting all this stuff down.
