Testimony: Poor Jared went full toddler tantrum when he got no dirt on Hillary

Kushner claimed he was "bored" during the meeting, but new testimony paints a different picture.

British music producer and Trump clan bestie, Rob Goldstone, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about his role in the meeting between Natalia Veselnitskave and Donald Trump Jr. Goldstone tells of how Jared Kushner became “agitated” and “infuriated” when the promised Hillary Clinton dirt wasn’t produced in the meeting.

Goldstone’s account of the incident differs quite a bit from Kushner’s claim that he was bored and confused for the duration of the meeting. “I had no idea why that topic was being raised and quickly determined that my time was not well-spent at this meeting,” was what Kushner told the House Intelligence Committee. He even claimed to text an assistant to get him an out from the meeting.

Visibly angry was how Goldstone described Kushner’s reaction when the lawyer discussed the Russian sanctions instead of the dirt on Clinton. Goldstone recalls:

“After a few minutes of this labored presentation, Jared Kushner, who is sitting next to me, appeared somewhat agitated by this and said, I really have no idea what you’re talking about. Could you please focus a bit more and maybe start again? And I recall that she began the presentation exactly where she had begun it last time, almost word for word, which seemed, by his body language, to infuriate him even more."

As can be expected, the White House did not respond about the differing recollections.
