Jared Kushner Replaced Michael Cohen as Trump’s National Enquirer Connection

Kushner repaced Cohen as AMI hookup

Shortly after the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was handed a task considered critical to the president’s operations. In addition to serving as a senior adviser in the White House, he would also be playing the role of the main conduit between Trump and his friend David Pecker, the National Enquirer publisher and chief executive of AMI, who prosecutors said on Wednesday admitted to making a $150,000 hush-money payment “in concert with” the Trump campaign.

During the early months of the Trump era, Kushner performed the task admirably, discussing with Pecker various issues over the phone, including everything from international relations to media gossip, according to four sources familiar with the situation. Pecker, for his part, bragged to people that he was speaking to the president’s son-in-law and, more generally, about the level of access he had to the upper echelons of the West Wing, two sources with knowledge of the relationship recounted.

Facebook bug released photos

Facebook is having to apologize — again. This time, it is for a bug the social network disclosed on Friday that may have affected up to 6.8 million people who used a Facebook login and gave permission to third-party apps to access their photos.

Facebook says the bug has been fixed but indicated some third-party apps “may have had access to a broader set of photos than usual” spanning the 12-day period between Sept. 13 and Sept. 25.

“We're sorry this happened,” Facebook wrote in a blog post aimed at developers. “Early next week we will be rolling out tools for app developers that will allow them to determine which people using their app might be impacted by this bug. We will be working with those developers to delete the photos from impacted users.”

Education Dept. agrees to cancel $150M in student debt after failed legal challenge

Education Dept. cancels student loans after court lossThousands of student loans totaling $150 million could be forgiven if the borrower was defrauded or attended one of the for-profit colleges that were shut down this month, the U.S. Department of Education said.

The Trump administration said Thursday it will cancel the debts, in accordance with a federal court ruling in September.

The department began notifying affected borrowers Friday, informing them the company that handles billing will discharge some or all of the outstanding debt in the next few months. Some discharges may take longer than 90 days, it said.

TVNL Comment:  DeVos fought to keep all these crooked schools open, and tried to keep the loans active.  She is a true Trumper.

Trump was in the room during hush money discussions with tabloid publisher

Trump in room with AMI

Donald Trump was the third person in the room in August 2015 when his lawyer Michael Cohen and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker discussed ways Pecker could help counter negative stories about Trump's relationships with women, NBC News has confirmed.

As part of a nonprosecution agreement disclosed Wednesday by federal prosecutors, American Media Inc., the Enquirer's parent company, admitted that "Pecker offered to help deal with negative stories about that presidential candidate's relationships with women by, among other things, assisting the campaign in identifying such stories so they could be purchased and their publication avoided."

The "statement of admitted facts" says that AMI admitted making a $150,000 payment "in concert with the campaign," and says that Pecker, Cohen and "at least one other member of the campaign" were in the meeting. According to a person familiar with the matter, the "other member" was Trump.
