Jared Kushner Under Scrutiny Amid Loans Allegedly Received After White House Meetings

File Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner at the White House Correspondents Dinner Red Carpet on Saturday April 28,2012

Porter's departure weakened Kelly, whom Trump has repeatedly complained about to friends. As a result, he can no longer read the highly sensitive President's Daily Brief, much less learn about classified details on world affairs.

"Mr Kushner's role in the campaign and transition was to be a point person for completely appropriate contacts from foreign officials and he did not mix his or his former company's business in those contacts", the spokesman, Peter Mirijanian, said in a statement.

The East Wing of the White House, which oversees the calligrapher's office, declined to comment.

"I can't answer that question because I don't think it's going to happen", he said.

"There is no standard operating practice with this administration", said Sen.

President Donald Trump whiplashed Washington, D.C., through 24 hours of chaos and confusion, culminating Thursday with a surprise announcement that he will unilaterally impose steep tariffs on all steel and aluminum imports.

International Olympic Committee to keep doping ban on Russian Federation for Winter Olympics closing ceremony
The opening ceremony was preceded by legal challenges as 45 Russian athletes appealed against the IOC's refusal to invite them. The PyeongChang Olympics have largely been a disaster for Russian Federation .

Even though Trump wanted them to leave, he kept telling them that they should continue to be part of the presidential administration.

Trump, meanwhile, is furious over the negative attention brought on by Kushner's legal entanglements, according to a New York Times report published Thursday. The stock market plunged.

The Securities and Exchange Commission late a year ago dropped its inquiry into a financial company that a month earlier had given White House adviser Jared Kushner's family real estate firm a $180 million loan. Vanity Fair's Emily Jane Fox joins The Hive to discuss what the White House will do now. But first, the president planned to give his chief of staff a chance to defend himself before reporters in the briefing room and gauge the reaction, according to two people with knowledge of the episode.

Republicans squirmed over Trump's call for stricter gun laws after the assault on a Florida high school, while Democrats seized on the opening to reach beyond a modest measure gaining traction in Congress. Kelly's standing has stabilized somewhat as media attention to the Porter issue has waned. Meyers slammed Kushner for having his security clearance downgraded from "top secret" to "secret". Kelly, in turn, has grown frustrated with what he views as the couple's freelancing. The newspaper quoted one unidentified source as saying the two men discussed financial and trade policy and not Kushner's family business.

The Citigroup also provided loans worth $325 million to Kushner Companies shortly after Jared Kushner met with Citigroup's Chief Executive Michael Corbat.

Some longtime advisers said that Trump regards Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation as the "original sin", which the president thinks has left him exposed. "But I did something wrong and God punished me, I guess".
