A partial list of documents which still need to be provided by Jared Kushner to the US Senate Judiciary Committee as of November 16, 2017. The entire bipartisan letter outlining the documents which he had failed to produce is found further below.
A list of documents requested found in the October 18, 2017 letter from US Senator Grassley. See that letter further below as well.
Before looking at the letters, let’s look again at a few of the names on the list which have already been discussed by this blog, in order to better reflect upon how serious this is.
The VEB Bank branch, harboring at least one spy-spy recruiter, wasn’t simply in New York City but in Manhattan! How close to Trump Tower? Evgeny Buryakov pled guilty in “Manhattan Federal Court In Connection With Conspiracy To Work For Russian Intelligence” last year. He was still listed as their “Deputy Representative” at 777 3rd St (as of last March).
Ivanka Trump husband, Donald Trump advisor, Jared Kushner, admitted to meeting with the head of the VEB Bank (Vnesheconombank), Sergei Gorkov, in December. According to Reuters, 28 March 2017, Gorkov “graduated from the Federal Security Service, or FSB, Russia’s internal security agency.“. According to the US Treasury sanctions: “VEB is a Russian state-owned financial institution that acts as a development bank and payment agent for the Russian government… VEB’s supervisory board is chaired by the Russian prime minister, and the chairman of the bank is appointed by the Russian president.” Thus, Gorkov was appointed by Putin.

Some of the blog posts which are related to this topic. There are more.
Both Democratic and Republican Senators have pointed out the “serious national security concerns over the potential takeover by Russia’s state-controlled oil company of critical U.S. energy infrastructure that could put Vladimir Putin and his associates in position to influence American gas prices and oil refinery production. Rosneft—a majority Russian government-owned oil company run by Putin crony Igor Sechin—could acquire a significant ownership share in CITGO Petroleum Corporation’s Venezuelan parent company, Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. (PdVSA), if PdVSA defaults on a loan backed by Rosneft… “Russia has also expressed strong opposition to existing sanctions. As such, we are extremely concerned that Rosneft’s control of a major U.S. energy supplier could pose a grave threat to American energy security, impact the flow and price of gasoline for American consumers, and expose critical U.S. infrastructure to national security threats.” CITGO operates a notable portion of the nation’s energy infrastructure with 48 petroleum product terminals in 20 states, including one in Linden, N.J., three refineries in Texas, Louisiana and Illinois, three fully-owned Texas pipelines, and six partially-owned pipelines. To shore up its financial footing, PdVSA put up 49.9% of its ownership share in CITGO as collateral for a loan it took last year from Rosneft. Rosneft has also potentially acquired other PdVSA bonds on the open market, raising the possibility that it could take a majority stake in CITGO should PdVSA default…”.

While this case clearly falls under National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (‘NISPOM”), as well as CFIUS, it is unclear who ultimately acts under NISPOM – is it the President again?
