Kushner outside the White House today:
Our mindmeld: Kushner has a top legal and P.R. team, and the potentially problematic day was deftly handled. At the White House, the internal reviews of Kushner's written statement and comments for the cameras were strong, even from skeptics. "The facts are pretty good so far," said one top Republican. "As long as it's all true, and there's nothing more."
Be smart: One stage-managed day certainly won't sate congressional investigators or special counsel Bob Mueller. Prosecutors now have even more threads to pull as they pursue their investigation into the heart of the White House.
The big question: Why didn't Kushner make this case months ago? Many of the facts and recollections in his written statement could have helped defuse some of the drip-drip news coverage.
