Jared Kushner’s Company Filed False NYC Paperwork About its Buildings and Pushed Out Tenants, AP Report Alleges

Before he was a top adviser in Donald Trump's White House, Jared Kushner's real estate company filed false paperwork in New York City claiming it had zero rent-regulated tenants in buildings that in fact had many, which led to the company being able to sell the properties quickly for millions in profit, reported the Associated Press Sunday. In one case, Kushner's company sold three buildings in Astoria—a neighborhood in the Queens borough of New York City—for $60 million just two years after it had bought the properties for much less. The incidents occurred while Kushner was the CEO of the Kushner Cos., but the paperwork did not have his signature, the AP reported, while noting it does show the business had questionable ethics.
