Posted on 07/16/2017 5:20:52 AM PDT by Whenifhow
Jared Kushners personal counsel, Jamie Gorelick, said Friday that she is no longer representing the presidents son-in-law and senior aide on Russia-related inquiries.
Abbe Lowell, an attorney at Gorelicks firm, will take charge of Kushners legal team.
As you may recall, and as we have stated, once Bob Mueller and three of our partners left the firm to form the Special Counsels Office [at the Department of Justice], we advised Mr. Kushner to get independent legal advice whether to continue with us as counsel, Gorelick told the National Law Journal. As [a] result of this process, Abbe is now responsible for the Russia-related inquiries.
Bob Mueller practiced at Gorelicks firm, WilmerHale, before he was tapped by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to serve as special counsel for the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Her departure comes as Kushner has been forced to amend his security clearance application several times, to reflect previously undisclosed meetings with lawyers and political operatives with Kremlin ties.
Gorelick served as Deputy Attorney General during the Clinton administration. She was widely considered the frontrunner for Attorney General had Hillary Clinton prevailed in 2016.

Does that mean she is still representing Mr. Kushner on other matters?
A blessing in disguise. The gorelick wretch should be investigated.
Why would you hire Jamie Gorlick?
She is still representing him in other matters..but security form issues have morphed into russian issues since he has had to revise for the third time.
Maybe Lowe will now be in charge of forms if it involves russua
Knowing her shady past, my guess is she quit to defect to the other side.
Because he is a Dem. Funny how she didnt recuse herself (or jared recused her )until Jrs story broke.
“Why would you hire Jamie Gorlick?”
Are you really expecting an answer that is different from what you know in your heart? Trump gives people all the rope they need to fail. I also think he is letting his daughter find out thing the best way, the hard way.

Honestly, not sure why Co President Jared didn’t just hire Eric Holder? Seriously maybe Lynch or some other prominent Democrat they socialize with....disgusting
DJT needs to take SIL Jared behind the wood shed.
Abbe Lowell is even lower worm crap than Gorlick.
Abbe David Lowell is an American defense attorney who was Chief Minority Counsel to Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives during the impeachment of Bill Clinton in the Lewinsky scandal.
There’s your leaker, giving two of the biggest scum sucking treasonous Dem political operatives confidential information because Jared absolutely knows Lowell and Gorlick are strictly bound by Attorney ethics and will give their all in Jared’s defense. Effin’ fool that boy.
I never get tired of mentioning it, but he has been forced incorrectly by people who are not his friends (e.g. Gorelick). The SF-86 instructions are very clear https://www.opm.gov/forms/pdf_fill/sf86-non508.pdf
"Do you have, or have you had, close and/or continuing contact with a foreign national within the last seven (7) years with whom you, or your spouse, or cohabitant are bound by affection, influence, common interests, and/or obligation?"
If you meet with a foreign national once that is not a "close" or "continuing" contact. Did he meet twice? Three times? Then arguably it was continuing.
In MY book, Jamie Gorelick is a lying, conniving, anti-American creep. It was HER ruling, backed up by Slick Willie, that forbade gubmint intelligence depts to exchange enemy intelligence among themselves; opening the door for the surprise of 9-11.
Mueller, Gorelick, Clintons all the incest. Why would Kushner even consider such stupid counsel? Common sense is not an attribute of liberal leaning Jarod/Ivanka.
Ivanka and Jared aren’t stupid enough to socialize with the worst of the worst of Obama’s cabal, or do they?
The real question is why, out of all the attorneys available, Jared picked first Jamie Gorlick and the Abbe Lowell, two of the hard core Clintonista consiglieri to represent him in ANY matters.
Gorelick SHOULD be in Prison!! She probably is a LEAKER also! Jared and Ivanka are DEMOCRATS!! NEVER trust a Democrat.
Abbe Lowell is about as far Left as they come. I have to guess there is some long-standing relationship of trust between the Kushners and this legal group. But imo you can never, ever trust a hard-core, true-believer Leftist.
Lowell works for same firm as gorelick so the fact that mueller worked there is not the reason she is replaced. Its because kushner needs a top shelf criminal lawyer.
Btw..lowell has represented GOP people too..Jack
