Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kelly answered questions from a Democrat at a Senate hearing who wanted to try to make a big deal over Jared Kushner’s alleged back-channel communication with Russia…

Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) tried to pin Kelly into a corner over Kushner’s actions yet Kelly was able to keep calm and answer the Senators questions, leaving him nowhere to go.

CNN later reported that Kelly believes that Kushner is a great American.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Tuesday he sees no issue with White House adviser and the President’s son-in-law Jared Kushner setting up a backchannel with Russia, saying he assumes Kushner is a “great American.”

Kelly left open the door that something improper could have happened, and said he hopes investigations by Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller and congressional committees will uncover it if that is the case.

Great job by Kelly, finally someone in a government position that has some respectability!
