Donald Trump slammed House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings and Baltimore for having “infested” housing. Yet, the Trump family has not been perfect. Daughter Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner’s family has a dark side. His father went to prison in part for hiring a prostitute to seduce his sister’s husband. Then, the senior Kushner had it videotaped and sent to his sister.

Then-attorney general Chris Christie prosecuted Charles Kushner and said it was one of the most “loathsome, disgusting crimes” he had ever prosecuted. There was also “tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions, and witness tampering,” according to Christie when he appeared on PBS’s Firing Line Show:

‘It’s one of the most loathsome, disgusting crimes that I prosecuted…and I was the U.S. attorney in New Jersey. @ChrisChristie talks about prosecuting Charles Kushner for tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions and witness tampering. #FiringLineShowPBS’

The Baltimore Sun’s investigative reporters talked to the Baltimore County spokesman T.J. Smith. He said the county received 164 complaints resulting in 56 “correction notices and citations” and a possible $13,200 in fines. Most of those citations were corrected, so the county levied $2,000 in fines. The Baltimore Sun reported:

‘The violations were all related to livability issues such as mold, insect infestations, mice, rats, window or door leaks, and inadequate air conditioning or heat.’

The newspaper also talked to Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. He spoke about what the county had done in 2017, under the former county executive Kevin Kamenetz (D):

‘We had to both threaten significant fines as well as withholding federal payments to ensure there was compliance. There’s a certain irony in hearing the president attacking a city and region when his own son-in-law was directly involved and his company was directly involved in creating the conditions where that quality of life was threatened.’

In one case involving the Kushner-owned firm Westminster Management, the attorney for the latter alleged:

‘…the firm charged illegal fees and threatened eviction to force payment.’

Olszewski found that in 2017:

‘…corporate entities affiliated with the Kushner complexes have sought the civil arrest of more than 100 former tenants for failing to appear in court to face allegations of unpaid debt. Between 2013 and 2017, Kushner affiliates had filed at least 1,250 legal actions, and judges had awarded a total of $5.4 million in judgments against tenants who owed an average of $4,400.’

A spokesperson for Kushner Cos. released a statement to the Baltimore Sun:

‘Kushner Companies is proud to own thousands of apartments in the Baltimore area. Substantial amounts are constantly reinvested in the properties to maintain a high quality residential experience for our tenants.’

Kamenetz noted that in November 2017 the county code inspectors cited Kushner Cos. for over 200 violations. At that time. Kushner Cos. owned $3,500 in unpaid fines. The county charged substantial fines subsequent to withholding rental assistance payments at a total of nine apartment complexes. Olszewski continued:

‘You’re talking about a company that was using local taxpayer dollars to help subsidize these apartments. and they were frankly in conditions that as a father I wouldn’t want to raise my daughter or my family in.’

Olszewski continued:

‘This isn’t about a person trying to raise an issue or concerns that they have. It’s really more about the response and the piling on that was done subsequent to that.’
