Exclusive: Jared Kushner pitching donors on father-in-law Trump, sources say



May 9 (Reuters) - Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been making calls to encourage donors to attend a Trump fundraiser in New York, two sources told Reuters, in one of the first indications of Kushner working to help re-elect his father-in-law.

Two sources told Reuters that Kushner has been calling donors ahead of a May 14 Manhattan fundraiser for Trump, who is facing Democrat Joe Biden in the November presidential election. Kushner's parents, Seryl and Charles Kushner, are among more than a dozen co-hosts for the event, according to an invitation.

Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump is co-chair of the Republican National Committee, and four of Trump's five children will be delegates representing Florida at the Republican National Convention in July. Ivanka Trump will not be among them, suggesting she is sticking to her pledge to stay out of politics.

Trump in 2020 pardoned Kushner's father, Charles Kushner, a real estate developer who was sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty in 2004 to 18 counts of tax evasion, witness tampering and making unlawful campaign donations.

Maybe Kushner can hit MBS and Netanyahu for a few secret millions funneled through his investment company. Lonestarblue May 15 #2
I agree with your premise but I believe the scale would be greater. Uncle Joe May 15 #3

Commercial on the local talk radio station.

“Move your 401K to gold”

These gold scams have as much as a 30% commission on them. *POOF* at least 30% is gone.

Kushner has already received at least 2 billion so if it's only in the millions, it won't be a "few."
