As unrelenting shockers keep streaming in from the White House, one more has a senior Trump administration official on the record, saying, “I don’t see how Trump isn’t completely f—ed.”
The top White House official spoke to the Daily Beast on condition of anonymity when asked about POTUS sharing highly classified national security information with Russian diplomats and also the revelation that James Comey kept notes of his dealings with Trump — and there was one memo in which the president asked the then-FBI director to halt his investigation into Michael Flynn over his ties to Russia.
“Every time I feel like we’re getting a handle on the last Russia fiasco, a new one pops,” the senior staffer said Monday, according to the Daily Beast. On Tuesday the outlet said the staffer revised his comment to: “I guess I was wrong about the timing… We can’t even wrap up one Russia fiasco before we’re on to the next one.”
Then came the damning blow from the official, who the Daily Beast revealed worked on Trump’s campaign: “I don’t see how Trump isn’t completely fucked.”
The frank comment had the tongues of some politicos and media insiders’ wagging. Perhaps fittingly, a star of HBO’s politically charged satire “Veep” chimed in on Twitter with his own theory. Timothy Simons said the unnamed official “has GOTTA be” Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and one of his senior advisors.
This has GOTTA be Kushner. https://t.co/F8wpmK5Jeu

Simons’ guess appears to be a good one seeing as Kushner is a senior official who also worked on Trump’s campaign. Of course, there are other staffers who fit those requirements, including, Kellyanne Conway, Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon.
Wow. Senior Trump admin official who worked on Trump's campaign: “I don’t see how Trump isn’t completely fucked.” https://t.co/3mU5aJMwBL
