President Donald Trump’s daughter and son in law, who also serve as White House advisers, are being sued. Washington lawyer Jeffrey Lovitky has filed suit against Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, claiming the two failed to identify all their assets on their public financial disclosure forms.
The suit contends that in at least 6 instances, Kushner’s report states that more detailed information is not available due to a confidentiality agreement.
The lawsuit further argues that this is an unauthorized reason to refuse to divulge the information because “The [Ethics in Government Act] does not allow a reporting individual to refuse to disclose the underlying assets of an investment vehicle, on the basis that such disclosure would violate a pre-existing confidentiality agreement. Nor does the EIGA allow a reporting individual to refuse to disclose the amount of income derived from any underlying asset of an investment vehicle, on the basis that such disclosure would violate a pre-existing confidentiality agreement”.
It should be noted that Kushner has made several updates to his financial disclosure forms since their original submission, stating the updates were to add “inadvertently omitted” information.
A White House spokesperson has commented that the lawsuit is without merit, saying that the Office of Government Ethics has “certified [Kushner’s] compliance with federal law”
There’s a possibility Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner didn’t disclose all their assets to the public? People in the Trump family may be keeping YUGE secrets involving their financial records? Please excuse the people with brains as we continue to not be shocked.
