Ivanka Trump special treatment a national security RISK claims former prosecutor

Trump wanted Ivanka Kushner out of White House Book New York Times: Book claims Ivanka Trump told Cohn her father wasn't racist following Charlottesville

The scandal prompted some people to bring up the educational histories of both President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and a White House senior adviser.

The new book by Vicky Ward - who has published investigative books on NY real estate mogul Harry Macklowe as well as the Lehman Brothers - called "Kushner Inc." not only details the couple's accent, but also their role as "chief enablers" to President Trump.

Trump routinely touts his intellect and his education at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, which is the college's business school.

Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Kushner's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, told The New York Times that "it seems [Ward] has written a book of fiction rather than any serious attempt to get the facts", adding that correcting everything would take too long and prove to be pointless. Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism before marrying Kushner, the grandson of Holocaust survivors, who was raised in a Modern Orthodox home in Livingston, New Jersey.

At issue were a set of emails contradicting a statement Donald Trump Jr. gave to the New York Times, in which he described his contact with the Russians as "a short, introductory meeting" during which he, Kushner, and Trump's campaign chairman at the time, Paul Manafort, "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children". But there is no such evidence of that, and a publication of the 1968 dean's list does not mention Trump's name.

Michael Cohen testified just last week that, under Trump's orders, he threatened the president's alma maters and the College Board not to release his grades and scores.

The excerpt doesn't say who sent the letter to the wrong printer. Here's why Trump should be anxious. According to the Times, it "seeks to tell the behind-the-scenes story" of the couple's "rise to extraordinary power in the White House".

Golden recapped the potential quid pro quo ten years later in an article for ProPublica.

Yeah, they're hella dumb, but those who work in White Houses should not throw stones. We thought for sure, there was no way this was going to happen. "It was a little bit disappointing because there were at the time other kids we thought should really get in on the merits, and they did not".

Gary Cohn, who previously served as the director of the National Economic Council under Trump, reportedly expressed strong dissatisfaction with Kushner's decision to dine with executives from the Chinese financial corporation Anbang, which was considering an investment in the Kushner family's infamous tower located at 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.
