Apparently, Jared Kushner’s security clearance and financial disclosure forms weren’t the first times he lied in official documentation.
According to a new report from AP, slumlord Jared Kushner and his family’s real estate firm routinely filed dozens of documents with New York City, claiming it had no rent-regulated tenants in its buildings when, in fact, it had hundreds.
“The Kushner Cos. bought three apartment buildings in a gentrifying neighborhood of Queens in 2015, most of the tenants were protected by special rules that prevent developers from pushing them out, raising rents and turning a tidy profit.
But that’s exactly what the company then run by Jared Kushner did, and with remarkable speed. Two years later, it sold all three buildings for $60 million, nearly 50 percent more than it paid.”
“For the three Queens buildings in the borough’s Astoria neighborhood, the Kushner Cos. checked a box on construction permit applications in 2015 that indicated the buildings had zero rent-regulated tenants. Tax records filed a few months later showed the company inherited as many as 94 rent-regulated units from the previous owner.
In all, Housing Rights Initiative found the Kushner Cos. filed at least 80 false applications for construction permits in 34 buildings across New York City from 2013 to 2016, all of them indicating there were no rent-regulated tenants. Instead, tax documents show there were more than 300 rent-regulated units. Nearly all the permit applications were signed by a Kushner employee, including sometimes the chief operating officer.”
“The fact that the company was falsifying all these applications with the government shows a sordid attempt to avert accountability and get a rapid return on its investment.”
Kushner Cos. said in a statement that if there are “mistakes or violations” in its documents, “corrective action is taken immediately.” The company said that third parties are responsible for putting together such documents, which are then looked at by an independent counsel.
Kushner Cos. should have caught these “mistakes” years ago, but oh wait, it’s hard to do that when the culprit is the CEO of the company. This is another white collar crime by Trump’s son-in-law. Jared should have been arrested yesterday. Think of what would happen to someone committing even a fraction of this crime on the streets. Hell, if a person filled out a driver’s license application falsely, they would get a fine. This just further proves that the Trump and Kushner clan think they are above the law. It’s time to set them straight and lock up every single one of their corrupt family members.
