Back to main page


Kushner is the elder son of real-estate developer Charles Kushner and is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump. He was principal owner of the real-estate holding and development company Kushner Companies and of Observer Media, publisher of the New York Observer. He is the co-founder and part owner of Cadre, an online real-estate investment platform.

Kushner is currently an unpaid adviser to Donald Trump (in violation of Nepotism laws). It was discovered that he did not disclose his connections with Russians on a security clearance form. Additionally, it has been alleged that he sought to set up a back channel between the Trump transition team and the Russian government when he chatted with Sergey Kislyak at Trump Tower in December 2016.
