Jared Kushner To Keep Some Real Estate, Courts Conflict Of Interest Questions

Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, key White House advisor to the new president, will not entirely divest from his family’s vast real estate empire, ProPublica reported Friday.

According to ProPublica’s report, based on documents released to the news organization and statements from the White House, Kushner is keeping some of his extensive assets.

With an official job in the White House, Kushner must abide by federal conflict of interest laws. He has sold off holdings in a number of family businesses. But he will not sell some of his Kushner Companies-related assets. The White House would not tell ProPublica exactly which assets Kushner would keep.

Kushner’s financial disclosure form, which could be made public later this year, should provide further details.
