During a video posted on Wednesday in tribute to GQ’s “Resistance” movement, Keith Olbermann called for the “immediate arrest of Jared Kushner,” and said that there was enough evidence to do so.
Intimating that sufficient evidence concerning implicating Kushner — who is President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser — existed with regard to Russian collusion, Olbermann called Kushner out on a variety of “charges.”
“I call for the immediate arrest of Jared Kushner,” Olbermann began. “If he should not be suspected of money laundering, racketeering and influence peddling, then he should be suspected of obstruction of justice and espionage and possibly worse.”
Olbermann noted that anything beyond Kushner’s arrest is not considered a feasible option.
“There is no other option that can be reasonably entertained,” he added.
The former MSNBC host went on the offensive two weeks after The Washington Post reported that Kushner wanted to set up a private line of communication between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
His comments come less than a week after The Washington Post reported Kushner had expressed a desire to set up a secret line of communication between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin.
The report claimed that U.S. officials had purportedly intercepted communications of Russian operatives telling superiors that Kushner inquired about the possibility of a private communications channel during a December meeting held at Trump Tower.
Kushner is currently under FBI investigation for his purported role in the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
“Kushner, his wife, Trump, General Allen, General McMaster, General Flynn, the others, are in their souls if not under the law traitors to this country,” Olbermann concluded in his video.
