Kushner Thread

Jared Kushner ‘crossed the line of ethics’ by taking $2B Saudi investment: Comer




Kushner’s firm Affinity Partners made the deal despite a Saudi Public Investment Fund review panel’s concerns about "inexperience” and a due diligence review that was "unsatisfactory in all aspects,” according to meeting minutes reported by the New York Times.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman overruled the fund’s review panel. 

Kushner was tasked with handling Middle East policy during his time in the White House and built a relationship with the crown prince. 

The liberal rag, the NY Post.

Ivanka linked to Cocaine arrest.


Maroon 5 bassist takes plea for giving coke to Ivanka Trump’s ex

A Maroon 5 band member took a plea deal Tuesday for allegedly passing Ivanka Trump’s ex-boyfriend a vial of cocaine in the East Village.

Grammy-winning bassist Michael "Mickey” Madden, 36, agreed to do one day of community service. If he stays out of trouble for six months, the one count against him of drug possession will be dismissed.

Ivanka’s ex, James "Bingo” Gubelmann, 35, took a similar deal in March. In addition to community service, Gubelmann agreed to complete a one-day drug treatment program.

The pals were on St. Mark’s Place outside St. Dymphna’s Bar Jan. 21 when an undercover saw Madden pass Gubelmann the vial of cocaine, the criminal complaint states.

The cop issued both men a desk appearance ticket. Gubelmann, a movie producer, dated Ivanka for nearly four years.

"I've never seen anything like it": Economic analyst stunned at sources of Jared Kushner's funds


Economic analyst Steven Rattner on Monday shared a pie chart showing that all but 1% of the $3 billion in investments in former President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner's private equity firm Affinity Partners came from foreign sources after he "spent much of his White House tenure cozying up" to Saudi Arabia and Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman. The Saudis invested $2 billion in Kushner's fund while the United Arab Emirates and Qatar each added another $200 million. About $625 million came from other non-U.S. sources while only $31 million came from sources inside the U.S. Rattner told MSNBC that he's "never seen this" in 40 years in the business.

Not yet. Calling something a bombshell when nothing has really happened seems premature and we don't do that in CVON.  I do think one may be coming though.
