Jared Kushner, son-in-law to the president and White House senior advisor, still hasn’t managed to get security clearance but is once again drawing attention with his suspicious behavior. This time, the cause for concern is his inability to properly file his Financial Ethics Disclosure forms.
The spotlight has been on Jared Kushner ever since Donald Trump announced he had appointed his son-in-law as a White House advisor, a role that has sent him around the world representing the United States in an official capacity. Despite his lack of political experience, Kushner has fit right into the Trump administration where political experience means very little.
Now, Pro Publica has reported that Kushner made numerous effort in his loan paperwork for two of his Brooklyn properties. Money from interest could rise to $1 million for each 215 Moore Street and 9 DeKalb Avenue.
Prop Publica cites that the Kushner’s finance forms have been updated or edited up to 40 times. Kushner’s representatives insist that the mistakes were simple data entry and accounting mistakes, insisting that the real mistakes were no where near 40.
According to the New York Daily News Kushner’s representatives said:
‘Any small amount of mistakes that have been made, amongst the hundreds of filings, were obviously unintentional and remedied as soon as identified.’
When updating his financial forms $10,00 of undisclosed holdings were reported
Like his wife Ivanka Trump, Jared comes from a family real estate empire. Kushner has distanced himself from the company after he came under scrutiny for it after being named as a member of the Trump administration.
When appearing on Fox News recently former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, when White House senior advisor Jared Kushner’s name was brought up suggested that he is replaceable.
‘I guess Jared is a fine man, you know that. But men are disposable.’

The updated disclosure paperwork belonging to Kushner revealed meetings with Russian officials. One such meeting took place at Trump Town in July 2016. The meeting that took place between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, former Trump campaign leader Paul Manafort, and two Russian officials (Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and a publicist to the Agalarov family) who claimed to have damning information about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
