White House releases financial forms on Trump’s son-in-law Kushner, other top officials

A 54-page financial disclosure form released by the White House late Friday evening reveals the net worth of White House senior adviser and President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Kushner, who also serves in the role of Director of American Innovation, a position Trump created to reduce the size of U.S. government bureaucracy, is the husband of Trump’s daughter, Ivanka.  Both serve in unpaid roles as advisers to the president.

According to forms released by the White House, the Kushners enjoy a personal wealth between $240–741 million.

The holdings the couple maintain include real estate interests and ownership in various businesses related to the New York real-estate industry.  Kushner previously served as CEO of Kushner Companies and has a stake in the New York Observer.

For her part, Trump daughter, Ivanka, was revealed to hold $5–25 million interest in Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., of which she was recorded to have earned between $1–5 million in earnings in 2016.

Buried deep in disclosure forms is the fact Kushner earned income not exceeding $22,000 from ownership of several rental properties in 2016, some of which are properties leased to lower-income renters.

Forms showed Kushner took in $2,500 from a trailer park in Union, N.J.; $5,000 from renters of an industrial park; and $15,000 from a Wayne, N.J., apartment complex.

Released at the same time as Kushner’s, the administration disclosed the worth of fellow administration employees Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway.

Conway, whose worth is due largely to her ownership in a political consulting firm, but includes shares in Pfizer, Philip Morris and Kraft Heintz, is estimated to have holdings valued at $40 million; Steve Bannon is believed to be worth between $12–56 million, with assets including the production company associated with investigative documentary “Clinton Cash” and a digital political consulting firm that mines voter data.

Although Kushner’s role within the White House is understood to be domestic, he is currently in Iraq at the invitation of top Pentagon officials.
