Trump son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, apparently has a really faulty memory.
Already in trouble for excluding numerous meetings held with foreign officials from his security clearance paperwork (including meetings with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. and the head of a Russian state-owned bank), today, he had to make good on his financial disclosures.
Apparently, Kushner “forgot” about some of his real estate, bonds, and his personal art collection. He “forgot” to the tune of 77 additional assets that needed to be listed.
The refiled form also adds additional details about Kushner’s real estate assets that were included on his original disclosure form filed in March.
One of the disclosures Kushner omitted was a business relationship with Goldman Sachs and billionaires George Soros and Peter Thiel, also an informal Trump advisor. The three worked together on a real-estate tech startup that was revealed in May.
Kushner founded the startup with his brother, Joshua, and another friend in 2014, but only included the investment in the startup on the newest disclosure form.
Emphasis mine, there. I didn’t want anyone to miss that we still can’t get Soros out of the White House.
Kushner’s lawyers are writing off the omissions to an “administrative error.”
He may seriously want to shake up his administration, because they omitted 77 assets, and failed to list around 100 contacts on his security clearance paperwork. In fact, it took three tries to get the security clearance right.
While Kushner’s lawyers further try to pass this off as “normal,” I’m not buying it. I don’t think any of us should.
