Today it was revealed that former Donald Trump campaign adviser Carter Page has met with federal authorities on at least five separate occasions in order to to discuss the Trump-Russia scandal. In what is not likely to have been a coincidence, Donald Trump and Jared Kushner have now made panic moves regarding their own roles in the scandal.

It all started when it was revealed by the Washington Post (link) that Carter Page has been meeting regularly with the Feds going back to March. This wasn’t previously known by the public, and it was apparently news to the Trump administration as well, whose reactions came fast and furious.

Jared Kushner panicked by hiring a high powered defense attorney, as reported by Politico (link), which suggests that he’s suddenly concluded he’s going to need one. He had already retained counsel in the Trump-Russia scandal, but the hiring of this kind of attorney today points to Kushner expecting to end up in a criminal trial. Carter Page is suspected (though not proven) to have been involved in Trump-Russia voter data collusion, and it’s the same case with Jared Kushner. So what is Kushner suddenly afraid that Page might have given to the Feds? Even as Kushner quietly panicked behind the scenes, Donald Trump panicked in rather public fashion.

Trump’s White House quickly announced out of nowhere that Syria is planning a new chemical weapons attack, even though U.S. Central Command says it has “no idea” what the hell Trump is talking about (link). In other words this is a panicked attempt at inventing a distraction, and there probably is no impending chemical attack. Trump also took his escalating Twitter attacks on President Obama, which had begun over the weekend, to a new crescendo today. Trump went so far as to falsely accuse Obama of having “colluded” and “obstructed” – the two crimes that Trump is widely suspected of having committed in the scandal.

The Washington Post probably asked the Trump administration for comment on its Carter Page story late last week, which coincides with Donald Trump’s sudden admission on Friday night that Russia did indeed hack the election for his benefit. So while we don’t know what all Carter Page has been telling the Feds, Trump and Kushner and the White House are reacting to the news in a manner which suggests they think Page has given up evidence of collusion or worse.
