‘Simply Outrageous’: Retired General Slams Kushner For Using WH Post For His Own Financial Interest

During an interview on MSNBC Wednesday, a retired four-star Army general tore into President Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner, warning that Kushner’s portfolio shows the “personalization of a family business dealing with U.S. policy.”

“Putting Jared Kushner, a 30-something person with no foreign policy or defense policy experience, as a leading representative of the United States is simply outrageous,” retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey told MSNBC.

Kushner has come under fire for using his position in the White White House to benefit his family business.

Earlier this month, a group of 25 House Democrats wrote a letter to White House chief of staff John Kelly, demanding that he fire Kushner.

The letter cites a series of recent reports on Kushner’s financial interests with foreign leaders.

“It’s impossible for the American people or their elected Representatives to have faith that Jared Kushner will put their interests above his own personal and finance interests,” the lawmakers wrote.

Last month, a report by the Washington Post revealed that foreign officials from at least four countries have discussed how to use Kushner’s lack of experience to their advantage.

Meanwhile, special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Justice Department investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, is reportedly looking into whether Kushner’s financial ties have had any impact on the Trump administration’s policies.
