Jared Kushner, son-in-law and top advisor to President Trump, is having his honesty challenged today after a blistering report surfaced about his real estate dealings
According to a new report by the Associated Press, the New York real estate company once headed by Jared Kushner, falsified documents filed to New York City “declaring it had zero rent-regulated tenants in dozens of buildings it owned across the city when, in fact, it had hundreds,” That allegedly allowed The Kushner Companies leeway to harass rent-controlled tenants with disruptive construction, pushing them out and allowing the buildings to be sold with higher rents for greater profit.
Per the Housing Rights Initiative, cited by the AP, the company filed “at least 80 false applications for construction permits in 34 buildings across New York City from 2013 to 2016.” And “nearly all” of the applications were signed by an employee of Kushner Companies, including some by the chief operating officer, though none filed during Jared Kushner’s tenure as CEO had his signature.
