Jared Kushner and President Postliterate Bestwords

PPD title for Trump got me laughing. Good opinion piece from Daily Beast.


Applicants are required to spell out in great detail the specifics of foreign travel and overseas contacts. Investigators need to know where youíve made your money and to whom you have debts. I did it in my early twenties when my life was relatively uncomplicated, and it was still a pain in the ass. Itís not easy, and itís not supposed to be. Itís even harder when youíre a corrupt, entitled snake who repeatedly lies about your finances to federal investigators and serves as a living, breathing poster child for privileged venality. Itís even harder when youíve rather clumsily attempted to use both your familial relationship and proximity to the president of the United States to save your familyís failing real-estate empire.

All of which helps explain Jared Kushnerís very bad day on Tuesday. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, a man who has compromised himself and his supposed values to accommodate and indulge President Trumphausenís various whims, impulses, urges, feuds, and paranoid episodes, finally drew the line and busted Kushnerís security clearance down from TS/SCI to Walmart Greeter Background Check (Provisional). Hear that? That was Americaís intelligence community, down to the last GS-7, breathing a loud sigh of relief.


It wasnít just that Kushner omitted tens of millions of dollars of investments from his SF-86 and was forced to revise again and again and again, or that his listing of foreign contacts and engagements was glaringly insufficient. Itís that he lied and omitted information in a way that was painfully obvious to the FBI and government officials examining his qualifications for the most elevated intelligence clearances. Then, the whispers in foreign capitals started; Kushner, they whispered, is for sale. American intelligence was listening.

Until today, Jared Kushner was one of a handful of recipients of the Presidentís Daily Brief, a product that compiles the crown jewels of the American intelligence communityís input and analysis. He was exposed to source and methods, high-grade analytical product, and the darkest secrets we have gleaned from the most sensitive sources. Although President Postliterate Bestwords has his PDB presented in graphic-novel form or performed by costumed dancers, Jared was apparently an aggressive consumer of intelligence, ordering up briefings and information outside even his broad purview. What he knows after a year in this position makes him the juiciest intelligence target in the world.
