The White House has been struggling to explain why exactly Jared Kushner had several secret contacts in December with the Russians, including one in which he met with the head of a Russian state-run bank mid-month.

Suffice it to say, none of the explanations put forward by the Trump administration add up, and now the bank, Vnesheconombank (VEB), has provided an account that is directly at odds with the White House version of events, writes the Washington Post.

    The bank maintained this week that the session was held as part of a new business strategy and was conducted with Kushner in his role as the head of his family’s real estate business. The White House says the meeting was unrelated to business and was one of many diplomatic encounters the soon-to-be presidential adviser was holding ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration.

First off, neither of those scenarios necessarily plays well for Kushner.

    A diplomatic meeting would have provided the bank, which has been under U.S. sanctions since 2014, a chance to press for rolling back the penalties even as the Obama administration was weighing additional retaliations against Moscow for Russia’s interference in the U.S. election.

    A business meeting between an international development bank and a real estate executive, coming as Kushner’s company had been seeking financing for its troubled $1.8 billion purchase of an office building on Fifth Avenue in New York, could raise questions about whether Kushner’s personal financial interests were colliding with his impending role as a public official.

Did they have a sale on airplane glue at Walmart this week?  I think you've been sniffing it.
That story is total nonsense including the title you stuck on it. 
You conveniently left out this line:
"Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that the bank’s activities “have nothing to do with the Kremlin.” Peskov, like Trump, has frequently dismissed revelations about the meetings as “fake news” and “a witch hunt.”"

But that is not the big issue.  The big issue is that these alleged meetings were in December..  Hmm.. about 6 weeks AFTER the election.  I fail to see how a meeting 6 weeks AFTER the election helps get Trump elected? 
The story sort of answers it's own premise.  AFTER the election, Sheik Obama decided to punish Russia with a slew of new sanctions.. which is something unprecedented in the history of the country.  Trump was elected on Nov 8.. and Obama is very much a "lame duck" at that point, but is issuing sanctions against Russia AFTER the election?   One might assume that Kushner assured whoever that Obama's sanctions would be terminated just as soon as the President elect Trump had Obama's ass evicted from the White House. 
I'm surprised the libtards have not complained that Trump had a black family evicted from a house In Washington D.C. that they had resided in for 8 years. 

By the way.. since when is it a crime to talk to the Russians?  They have not been communist for 26 years.  Obama was doing his best to re-ignite a cold war to dump on Trump.  Since virtually every media outlet had predicted a landslide victory for Slippery Hillary, it would be silly for the Russians to stick their heads out and get punished by that bitch once she took over for the regime of Sheik Obama.  So.. whatever meetings happened AFTER Nov. 8th are irrelevant.
