Trump Cheers After Jared Kushner Shrugs Off Russian Election Interference As “A Couple Of Facebook Ads”

CNN reports:

Senior presidential adviser Jared Kushner suggested Tuesday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was more harmful to the US than Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“You look at what Russia did, you know, buying some Facebook ads to try and sow dissent and do it, it’s a terrible thing,” Kushner said in an interview at Time 100 Summit in response to a question about the Mueller investigation.

“But I think the investigations and all of the speculation that’s happened for the last two years has had a much harsher impact on our democracy than a couple Facebook ads,” he continued.
