Jared Kushner Allegedly Patched Prank Caller Through to President Trump

01 July, 2018, 17:15 | Author: Sheila Harris

According to the report, when White House officials followed up with an inquiry to Senator Menendez's office about the conversation with the president they were met with confusion, with the senator's aides not aware of any conversation having taken place.

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez. Bob Menendez has "chilling" implications, Rep. Gerry Connolly said. Eventually, Jared Kushner (Ivanka Trump's husband and senior advisor to Trump) supposedly called Melendez back to put him in contact with the president.

"I find it astounding that the news media's not picking up the fact that I totally duped the President & got in touch within in less than 2 hours while he was on Air Force One", tweeted Melendez.

Veteran performer John Melendez, who regularly appears on Howard Stern and Jay Leno's shows, published a podcast that includes a recording of a three-minute conversation during which he pretended to be Senator Robert Menendez.

Asked about the families that had been separated at the border under Trump's "zero tolerance" policy on illegal immigration, the president said he was hoping to bring Democrats and Republicans together on a comprehensive legislative solution. He adds, "I'd like to do the larger solution rather than the smaller solution; they're doing them step by step".

He reached several White House operators before being told the president would call him back.

"Shame on Donald Trump who has been a friend of mine for years", he tweeted.

"I just pulled the immigration thing out of my ass", Melendez said afterward. "But they didn't ask me any of this", Melendez told CNN.

The paper promotes itself as one of the oldest publishers in the country, with roots dating to the Maryland Gazette in 1727. Krampf said police had disposed of a suspected explosive device and that the four-story office building was now secure.

"A lot of these celebrities don't get it - they don't want to ever be able to laugh at themselves", Melendez told The Washington Post in a 1994 interview.

And Trump told Melendez that he would make a pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in 12 to 14 days. "I'll probably make it over the next couple of weeks", the president, apparently, responds to Melendez.

It's always good to know that the White House is an extremely functional, well-oiled machine.

Alright I guess Donald is more concerned with pursuing this legally as opposed as to firing his screening staff.

During the audio clip, the voice that sounds like Trump congratulates whom he believed was Senator Menendez on his federal corruption case.

Sen. Menendez weighed in on the apparent prank call on Friday.

'I have a good relationship with the party, you have a good relationship with the party, and I think we could do a real immigration bill.
