FUN FACTS in this fluff piece article on Ivanka's husband Jared Kushner and his fast rise to power despite never being engaged in politics until this past year:
#1. Jared Kushner owns a building located at 666 5th Avenue
#2. Chris Christie was fired from transition after Trump win
#3. As a U.S. attorney in 2005, Christie jailed Kushner's father
#4. Kushner's father was jailed on tax evasion charges
#5. Kushner's father was jailed on ELECTION fraud charges, &
#6. Kushner's father was jailed on witness tampering charges.

MISSING FACTS in this fluff piece on Kushner:
#1. Kushner's main project for Trump was Cambridge Analytica
#2. Cambridge Analytica (CA) is only mentioned once in article
#3. Trump campaign paid $5 million for CA
#4. CA top investor is Robert Mercer
#5. Mercer's daughter Rebekah pushed Trump to hire CA
#6. Rebekah Mercer is now one of the top advisors on transition
#7. Steve Bannon is a board member of CA & senior WH advisor
#8. CA was used by the Brexit referendum campaign
#9. CA is a subsidiary of London-based SCL Group
#10. SCL Group is known for military disinformation campaigns
#11. CA uses psychological data on millions of Americans
#12. Most of CA's data is collected without users knowing
#13. Most of CA's data is collected without users' permission
#14. CA has microtargeting info on 220 million Americans
#15. CA claims to have 4K-5K data points on each American
#15. Kushner used CA to target mostly MI, PA, and WI
#16. CA pumped out negative info on Hillary Clinton
#17. This Hillary info CA pushed included "fake news"
#18. CA was used to lower Hillary voter turnout in key states
#19. Trump team created 100K unique digital content pieces a day
#20. Trump campaign used CA instead of a field program
#21. Trump campaign used CA instead of political operatives
#22. Clinton campaign had one of the most powerful data teams
#23. Cruz's digital director said Clinton digital team is best there is
#24. Clinton campaign had a strong field program & GOTV effort
#25. Trump team admits CA doesn't turn out voters
#26. Trump team claims CA was the reason for Trump's win
#27. Without a field program in PA, Trump had 91% GOP turnout
#27. CA may win 2 major contracts to run White House data
#28. Bannon and Mercer are pushing for the CA contracts
#29. CA will be used to promote Trump's policies.

Congress needs to investigate Cambridge Analytica, what information it possesses on Americans, how that information was taken without users knowing or their permission, and how that data was used by the Trump campaign and will be used to manipulative messaging to achieve a specific outcome, especially given CA and its parent company's shady history and track record of propaganda and misinformation wars.
