Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner Sued Over Financial Disclosures

A Washington lawyer is suing first daughter Ivanka Trump and White House adviser Jared Kushner, claiming the pair illegally omitted information from their public financial disclosures. Lawyer Jeffrey Lovitky—who filed a similar lawsuit against President Trump this year—alleges Trump and Kushner neglected to identify assets owned by 30 investment funds the two had stakes in, Politico reports. In his complaint, Lovitky says Kushner’s claim that a “pre-existing confidentiality agreement” prohibits him from disclosing certain financial information is in violation of the Ethics in Government Act. Both Kushner and Ivanka Trump were fined for filing their disclosure forms late, and Kushner has repeatedly had to update his form since it was filed in March. The presidential adviser is also facing legal trouble at his real-estate company, which is reportedly being sued over unpaid bills. Cornicello, Tendler & Baumel-Cornicello, a law firm that represented Kushner’s company in several eviction and housing court cases, says it is owed $102,000 from legal work done two years ago, the New York Daily News reported Sunday.
