Kushner’s Company Just Received A Federal Subpoena After Filing False Paperwork: Report
The Kushner Companies received a federal subpoena on Thursday after allegedly filing false paperwork that claimed it served zero rent-regulated tenants, according to a new report.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the Brooklyn U.S. attorney’s office subpoenaed Kushner Cos. after The Associated Press claimed the company filed paperwork claiming that it had zero tenants in buildings when in reality they had hundred of rent-regulated tenants living in their buildings.
Kushner Cos. blamed the false paperwork on a third party. They insisted that the paperwork was filed by a third party and that “if mistakes or violations are identified, corrective action is taken immediately.”
According to the Journal, the subpoena is requesting the identities of those third parties.
The Journal noted that the documents were filed while Jared Kushner was still the company’s CEO.
“Kushner Companies has nothing to hide and is cooperating fully with all legitimate requests for information, including this subpoena,” a spokeswoman for the company said. She then added: “We believe that this subpoena, which has already been complied with, was issued based solely on an article that appeared in the press the day before it was issued.”
