Jared Kushner’s Name Just Unexpectedly Surfaced In Manafort’s Trial
Jared Kushner, who has been away from the public eye recently, has just been brought up in the trial of former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort.
If there was anything Kushner didn’t want to be involved in it was this trial.
According to an article published by Salon, Donald Trump’s son-in-law’s name came up during Manafort’s trial when John Brennan, a vice president at the Federal Savings Bank, was called to testify.
According to ABC News, Kushner told Manafort that he would help him get a banker friend appointed to a high-ranking government post.
Kushner had received an email from Manafort in November of 2016 asking for Stephen Calk, the CEO and founder of Federal Savings Bank, to be considered for the position of Secretary of the Army, according to evidence presented to the court.
According to Manafort’s email to Kushner, “Calk was an active supporter of the campaign since April. His background is strong in defense issues, management, and finance.”
In Brennan’s testimony, he explained how Manafort was able to squeeze out $16 million in loans from the bank around the same time he asked Kushner to help Calk get a job in the Trump administration.
