Trump, Kushner never blackmailed Scarborough

I've already seen some corrupt media outlets trying to make the claim that Trump committed the crime of blackmail which I find extremely laughable.  First of all it was Scarborough who approached Kushner trying to get a NE story killed.
  Blackmail is the other way around with the perp approaching Scarborough to put the squeeze on him.  Of course these kind of details won't stop the corrupt media from running with a false premise. 

Fox News reports a top White House aide never suggested a quid pro quo during a call with Joe Scarborough regarding an upcoming National Enquirer Story, a source told Fox News – despite Scarborough’s claim Friday morning that a Trump adviser recently tried to blackmail him into giving positive coverage of the president.

 Scarborough made the allegation during Friday’s “Morning Joe,” as he and Mika Brzezinski provided a fierce response to a pair of tweets President Trump directed at the MSNBC hosts a day earlier.

But a source familiar with the matter said Scarborough called senior adviser Jared Kushner, with whom Scarborough has a friendly relationship, to ask about a National Enquirer article slated to run in early June regarding the relationship between Scarborough and Brzezinski, who have since announced their engagement.

Scarborough asked Kushner if there was anything that could be done about the article, the source said, given Trump’s friendship with David Pecker, the chief executive of The Enquirer’s parent company, American Media. Kushner allegedly told Scarborough that the former Republican congressman needed to talk to the president himself about the issue, to which Scarborough replied that Trump was angry at him. The source said Kushner answered: “Well, then maybe you should apologize.”
