In an amended financial disclosure form, Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner reported 77 previously undisclosed assets worth an additional $10 million on Friday, which his legal team said were “inadvertently omitted” from prior financial disclosure filings.
The additions were made “during the ordinary review process” with the federal Office of Government Ethics, according to a copy of the document.
Ivanka Trump has also submitted her own financial disclosure form to OGE, but that information is currently still under review.
“Jared and Ivanka have followed each of the required steps in their transition from private citizens to federal officials,” said Kushner’s attorney Jamie Gorelick, noting “Ivanka’s financial disclosure form is still in the pre-certification stage, as she began the process later.” Ivanka took on an official role within the administration in late March, whereas Kushner was tapped to serve as a senior adviser prior to Trump’s inauguration.
New executive-branch appointees typically have to amend their initial financial disclosures to the federal ethics agency, said Gorelick,noting that discussions with OGE “are proceeding in the ordinary course” with regard to Ivanka Trump’s filing. Both forms were released by the White House.
Ivanka’s form disclosed a business trust worth more than $50 million, including assets such as her trademarks and her jewelry and fashion lines. She also disclosed 10 assets worth between $5 million and $25 million from a real estate company which holds interests in future hotels and golf courses in New York and a licensing deal for a hotel in India. She received additional income of $529,590 from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Kushner’s 89-page disclosure form shows that he has $5 to $25 million worth of assets in real estate and owns artwork ranging in worth from $5 million to $25 million. However, the form didn’t begin to delve into the Kushner family holdings, which are reportedly worth $5.2 billion of assets and carry $2.9 billion of debt, according to data firm Real Capital Analytics.
Initial filings showed that between the two of them, the couple held $240 million to $740 million in assets, but the amended disclosures changed that amount to a range of between $206 million and $760 million.
