Democratic mega-donor Haim Saban personally thanked White House adviser Jared Kushner on Sunday for ordering former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to contact the Russians during the transition period in defense of Israel.

“You’ve been in the news in the last few days, to say the least,” Saban began their conversation at the Brookings Institute. “But you’ve been in the news for an issue I personally want to thank you for because you and your team were taking steps try to get the United Nations Security Council to not go along with what ended up being an abstention by the U.S. against [an anti-Israeli resolution],” he said.

Saban told Kushner that some had accused the Trump son-in-law of wrongdoing for the action, but Saban said he saw nothing illegal in the action. In fact, he saw nobility in the pro-Israel move.

“To be honest with you, some people might criticize you. As far as I know, there’s nothing illegal there. But, I think this crowd and myself want to thank you for making that effort,” he concluded, before moving on to the main program.

FEC reports show that Saban donated millions to various Democratic causes in 2016, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
