REP LIEU AND MEMBERS PRESS JARED KUSHNER ON QUESTIONS ABOUT NEW YORK PROPERTY
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) led eight Members of Congress in sending a second letter asking Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner to explain whether he has used his position to seek financial bailouts for 666 Fifth Avenue, a property owned by Kushner Cos. The Members first sent a letter to Mr. Kushner on Dec. 6, and have yet to receive a response. Yesterday, CNN reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking into whether Mr. Kushner was securing financing for Kushner Cos. from foreigners during the Presidential transition.
“The questions we’ve been asking are pretty simple: Did he have any discussions with foreign nationals about 666 Fifth Avenue? And, if so, did he discuss anything related to helping finance, purchase, or assist with the debt on 666 Fifth Avenue. The longer we wait for a response, the more it seems like Mr. Kushner has something to hide.”
