Lots of money, lots of potential conflicts

Kushner brings pragmatic view

Kushner is Trump's loyal son-in-law and is therefore not likely to go anywhere because in Trump world, family and loyalty are everything. Bannon's reasoning was that the missile strikes violated Trump's America First ideology, while his ideological foe in the White House - Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner - insisted they were necessary as a response to Bashar al-Assad's use of chemical weapons against his own people.

Bannon also told his associates, "I love a gunfight", according to another Axios report, which said that "the hatred between the two wings" in the White House was "intense and irreconcilable".

One former transition officials said there are insurmountable differences in views between Kushner's "globalist Democrats", Priebus's loyalists from his time as head of the Republican National Committee and Bannon's bomb-throwing populists.

"Outside forces", said administration spokeswoman Lindsay Walters, are trying to sabotage the Trump presidency by gossiping about the contentious relationships between major White House players.

Kushner, whom the President has given an expanded portfolio that includes high-level foreign policy matters, is required to complete a lengthy form with specifics about all of his foreign contacts and connections over the last seven years. Priebus's job security has been the focus of intense speculation ever since he arrived at the White House, but no report of his imminent demise has ever come to fruition. NY magazine's Gabriel Sherman, citing "a longtime Trump adviser", reported that the president had called Spicer's media-bashing debut in the briefing room "terrible".

Around the same time, Newsmax chief executive and Trump pal Chris Ruddy suggested on CNN that the president ought to replace Priebus.

Obama aide denies using intel to spy on Trump advisers
Senior intelligence agency officials then decide whether that information can be provided without violating the legal guidelines . You have to have a reason beyond simple curiosity that is tied to some legitimate national-security or law-enforcement goal ".

On Wednesday, Trump removed Bannon from the National Security Council, reversing an earlier, controversial decision to give Bannon access to the group's high-level meetings, while Kushner has appeared to gain power and responsibilities. If Kushner was wary of Bannon, why didn't he object to him joining the campaign?

Ms. Trump, 35, will be the Presidents assistant and her husband, Mr. Kushner, 36, has the title of senior adviser. Cohn acts as Trump's chief economic adviser and Powell is a deputy national security adviser.

Update: Oh dear. If this is true, Bannon and Kushner won't co-exist for much longer.

Bannon "recently vented to us about Jared being a "globalist" and a "cuck". He actually said 'cuck, ' as in "cuckservative, '" the administration official told The Daily Beast.

The axe may fall soon on Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus.
