Leaked Bank Records Tie Russian Money To Kushner Company He Didn’t Disclose
Every day that passes seems to bring more bad news for Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser. And every day is becoming a day closer to the day we see him land in prison.
The latest incriminating news comes from a massive document dump of off-shore bank accounts, revealing that a Russian state bank and state oil company poured billions to help fund Cadre, a healthcare startup that Kushner co-owned, which he initially did not include on his official financial disclosure form.
In simpler terms, Russian money, controlled by the Putin government, made its way, through Milner, to Kushner companies and projects.
These new revelations add to the growing list of Russian ties Kushner maintained before entering politics, some of which he maintained during the presidential campaign.
“Kushner failing to disclose contacts with Russians has become a familiar pattern,” the Huffington Post concluded when reporting on the document dump.
With the new information provided by the Paradise Papers, the list of known Kushner ties to Russia now includes discussing a secret communication channel with the Russian ambassador to Washington; meeting with the head of a Russian state-owned bank during the campaign; attending a meeting organized by Donald Trump Jr. with a Russian lawyer; and using Russian money through Milner to fund real estate projects.
In all cases, Kushner failed to disclose his Russian connections in a timely fashion.
And just today, The Baltimore Sun reported that Kushner’s Maryland apartment company asked a court to shield its investors’ identities.
What is he hiding?
“I expect there’s a good likelihood Jared Kushner will be indicted for money laundering, and then we’re going to see how far this Russian involvement goes,” former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean told MSNBC in a recent interview.
