Business Insider: Ethics Experts Say Jared Kushner's 'Very, Very Bad Judgment' Got Him Into Hot Water Once Again
The White House senior adviser Jared Kushner is under fire again, this time for a pair of loans his family business received shortly after Kushner met the creditors in the White House — and ethics experts say he could be in legal jeopardy as a result.
Experts also ridiculed the idea that the White House counsel, Donald McGahn, would be able to effectively investigate whether the loans were improper, and they suggested the ordeal could even come under the microscope of Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the Russia investigation.
"The White House's track record in enforcing ethics laws has been terrible," Larry Noble, the senior director and general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, told Business Insider. "And regardless of what they conclude, at the very least there is an appearance that the loans may have an effect on White House decisions."
