Simon Says

What's the latest on the current fake news scandal, Fair 'n' Balanced Network?

A December meeting between Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and one of the senior advisers in the Trump administration, and Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak at Trump Tower focused on Syria, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News Monday.

Now, now, now! You heard what Massster said when he got back from vacation: 

During the meeting the Russians broached the idea of using a secure line between the Trump administration and Russia, not Kushner, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News. That follows a recent report from The Washington Post alleging that Kushner wanted to develop a secure, private line with Russia.

Well, that's a relief. This one says "source says," not "sources say," so it must be all right. But aside from moving the narrative from "it wouldn't have been a bad idea" to "it wasn't our idea in the first place," what else can this source tell us?

The idea of a permanent back channel was never discussed, according to the source. Instead, only a one-off for a call about Syria was raised in the conversation.

So -- nothing to impede the investigation, right?

... The source has told Fox News that Kushner is eager to tell Congress about the meeting and any others of interest.
