Businesses Reportedly Gave Jared Kushner's Co $500M Loans After White House Meetings

Businesses Reportedly Gave Jared Kushner's Co $500M Loans After White House Meetings

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner listens as President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting at the White House.

Kushner Companies has said in a statement that Jared Kushner's White House role had no impact on the company's financial relationships.

Trump could simply grant a waiver for Kushner to receive a high-level security clearance despite the unresolved background investigation.

A Deutsche Bank spokeswoman declined to comment, as did a spokesman for the state regulator.

Jared Kushner's representatives did not respond to a request for comment.

"Prior to our CEO voluntarily resigning to serve our country, we never had any type of inquiries", Taylor said in an email. "These type of inquiries appear to be harassment exclusively for political reasons". Signature said that, by law, it can not disclose regulatory or legal inquiries. The Kushner family and Kushner Cos. have been clients since 2010, she said.

In both cases, there was no direct proof of a quid-pro-quo relationship between Kushner and the two executives approving his loans, The Times noted.

News of federal inquiries concerning Kushner Cos. has emerged in recent months, including by prosecutors at the USA attorney's office in Brooklyn and by the Securities and Exchange Commission, The Wall Street Journal has reported.

Among them is Flordia Governor Rick Scott, who supports raising the minimum age for gun purchases from 18-years-old to 21. Please know, Wyndham is no longer affiliated with the NRA", the hotel chain tweeted at several social media users.

Even by the standards of Apollo, one of the world's largest private equity firms, the previously unreported transaction with the Kushners was a big deal: It was triple the size of the average property loan made by Apollo's real estate lending arm, securities filings show.

In the case of Apollo Global Management, Kushner met multiple times with its head, Joshua Harris, three sources told The Times. According to reports, Mueller has been looking into the financial dealings of a number of Trump family members, including Kushner. In Kushner's case, a permanent clearance wasn't coming anytime soon; according to the Washington Post, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had warned the White House on February 9 that recent revelations in Kushner's background investigation "could be an obstacle to his clearance process".

Perhaps if Kushner weren't so politically motivated himself, he wouldn't have to worry about having his potential conflicts of interest scrutinized.

Indeed it isn't. There aren't many daughters whose fathers would have so many accusers, or would pay six-figure sums to porn star mistresses in exchange for their silence during a presidential campaign, as Trump did with Stormy Daniels in 2016. Banks can label transactions as suspicious based on concerns about the origin of funds, the parties involved or other reasons.

A spokesman for the department declined to comment on the inquiry.

Mr. Manafort faces a September trial on charges of conspiring against the USA, conspiring to launder money and failing to register as an agent of a foreign power.

Kushner resigned as chief executive of Kushner Cos. when he joined the White House last January, and he sold a small portion of his stake in the company to a trust controlled by his mother. His real estate holdings and other investments are worth as much as $761 million, according to government ethics filings.
