Business Insider: “[Jared] Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and a top White House adviser, was willing to go extraordinary lengths to establish a secret line of communication between the Trump administration and Russian government officials, The Washington Post reported Friday.”

“Former intelligence officials described Jared Kushner’s reported attempt to set up a backchannel line of communication with Russia last December that would bypass the US’ national security and intelligence apparatus as ‘off the map,’ ‘explosive,” and “extremely dangerous.'”

Scott Olson, retired FBI agent: “This is way beyond a private server. This is doing US government diplomatic business over a foreign government’s communication system…This shows a staggering lack of understanding of the US and its place in the world. Actually it shows a staggering lack of common sense.”

Michael Hayden, former director of the NSA and the CIA: “This is off the map. I know of no other experience like this in our history, and certainly not within my life experience.”

“‘If you are in a position of public trust, and you talk to, meet, or collude with a foreign power’ while trying to subvert normal state channels, ‘you are, in the eyes of the FBI and CIA, a traitor,’ said Glenn Carle, a former top counterterrorism official at the CIA for more than two decades.”
