A month before election day, Deutsche Bank came through for Jared Kushner. If I am reading this right, the loan is to Jared’s corporation, for a property near Times Square, but Jared and his brother are guaranteeing it.
The corporate loan and Kushner’s personal guarantee are not mentioned on his financial disclosure form, filed with the Office of Government Ethics. Blake Roberts, a lawyer who represented Kushner on the matter, said in a statement to The Post that Kushner’s form “does not list the loan guarantee” because the disclosure relied on “published guidance” from OGE that he said “clearly states that filers do not have to disclose as a liability a loan on which they have made a guarantee unless they have a present obligation to repay the loan.”
The Post sent the language cited by Kushner’s lawyer to Don Fox, a former general counsel and acting OGE director. After reviewing the wording, he said in an interview that he would have advised Kushner to disclose the personal guarantee of the $285 million corporate loan because of its size and possible implications.
One more thing, like the meetings with Russians, that Jared forgot to tell us as he took his seat as the President’s special advisor. He and his mother also have a personal line of credit at Deutsche Bank up to $25 million.
Deutsche Bank has been in trouble, and so was Jared’s property. Sounds like a marriage made in heaven.
