Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner did not disclose his ownership in a real-estate startup linked to billionaire investor George Soros.
President Trump’s son-in-law reportedly did not include on his government financial disclosure form that he holds a stake in real estate finance firm Cadre.
Kushner also did not disclose loans totaling $1 billion from at least 20 lenders, according to The Wall Street Journal.
His investment in the startup makes Trump’s top adviser a partner with huge Democratic Party donor Soros as well as Wall Street investment bank Goldman Sachs.
The Daily Caller reports:
That Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, wasn’t open about his business dealings with Soros — a left-wing billionaire funding activists fiercely opposed to the president’s agenda — is unlikely to go over well with Trump’s base.
Kushner’s attorney Jamie Gorelick said he reported his stake at BFPS Ventures LLC, a company that includes Cadre, although the form does not specifically show Cadre.
Gorelick also said that Kushner’s ownership in the startup will be made public once the revised financial disclosure form is certified by ethics officials.
