    'On it!': Kushner brought up in Manafort trial by reply to email seeking help in getting banker a Trump administration job

    Jared Kushner — and a two-word email he authored in response to Paul Manafort on help getting a banker a job in the new administration — are now part of the body of evidence federal prosecutors have built in their case against the former Trump campaign chairman. The invocation of Kushner’s name is the first time the president’s son-in-law has come up during Manafort’s trial in Alexandria, Virginia, for multiple financial crimes, including charges of bank and tax fraud. Manafort awaits a separate trial in Washington, D.C, scheduled to begin in September.

    Berat Albayrak: the Jared Kushner of Turkey tackles its crisis

    Consigliere for more than a decade and now Turkey's second most powerful person, Berat Albayrak's rise through the ranks has become one of the most consistent – and contentious – themes of the country's recent history. The 40-year-old businessman, who is due to address foreign investors about the lira crisis on Thursday, owes his position to his father-in-law, the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who has given him sweeping powers in Turkish life, particularly in the past five years. The unyielding confidence that Erdoğan has placed in the husband of his daughter, Esra, culminated in his appointment as finance minister in June, a role that has left Albayrak as custodian of a grave national crisis. As Turkey's currency dabbles with the unknown and global markets nervously weigh whether the country can pull its economy back from the brink, the two men carry a burden that many believe they are unable to shoulder.

    Read the email from Manafort to Trump adviser Jared Kushner submitted into evidence

    When Richard Westling resumed his cross examination, he asked Brennan about the process of approving the loan for 377 Union Street in Brooklyn. The defense showed the credit memorandum Brennan wrote for the loan, which he would do at the last stage for all loans. He provided a risk rating of 4 — which is considered “average.” Over a 4 rating, a risk is considered troubled and is not approved. Brennan said later in Greg Andres' redirect that he didn't think the loan should be rated a 4, but that the loan should not be made. However, since the loan was already  approved, he had to provide at least a 4 rating as higher ratings are not approved. Brennan said he had collected information on Manafort

    Manafort Turned to Kushner in Attempt to Get Banker a Trump Job

    Paul Manafort turned to Jared Kushner for help in an attempt to secure a Trump administration job for a Chicago banker at the center of Manafort's fraud trial. Manafort, Donald Trump's campaign manager in 2016, got a quick response. “On it!'' Kushner replied on Nov. 30, 2016, according to an email submitted by prosecutors into evidence Monday at Manafort's trial on bank and tax-fraud charges. The email shows how Manafort reached, without success, into Trump's inner circle for help months after he was deposed as campaign manager. It also provides a window into how a disorganized, inexperienced campaign team was inundated with requests from supporters seeking coveted posts in the new administration.

    Omarosa Manigault Newman reportedly secretly taped Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner

    If you have ever met Omarosa Manigault Newman, as a member of the Trump administration or just passing her by on the street, just assume she taped everything you said. Two people close to the former White House aide told Politico on Monday that she recorded phone calls she received from President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, after she was fired last December by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. Ivanka Trump and Kushner are both senior advisers to the president, and are heard on the tape wishing Manigault Newman luck and telling her they had no idea she was going to get fired, Politico reports.

    Kushner’s Ties to Russia-Linked Group Began With Kissinger Lunch

    In March 2016, as the U.S. foreign policy establishment shunned presidential candidate Donald Trump, his son-in-law Jared Kushner was invited to lunch for a think tank urging engagement with Russia. The meeting at Manhattan’s Time Warner Center, which hasn’t been reported before, would prove significant for the Center for the National Interest and Kushner, who was still a little-known figure in the Trump campaign. The main attraction of the March 14th event was Henry Kissinger, the center’s honorary chairman, who gave a talk that included analyzing U.S.-Russia relations for a small group of attendees.
