Kushner Led Foundation Funded Illegal Israeli Settlements

Jared Kushner failed to disclose that he led a foundation that funded illegal Israeli settlements.

Jared Kushner, White House strategist and son-in-law of President Donald Trump failed to disclose that he led a foundation that funded illegal Israeli settlements from 2006 to 2015. This activity occurred while Kushner was the co-director of the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation.

Jared Kushner failed to disclose his role as a co-director of the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation from 2006 to 2015, a time when the group funded an Israeli settlement considered to be illegal under international law, on financial records he filed with the Office of Government Ethics earlier this year.

Kushner advised former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to contact Russia about Israeli settlements.

The latest development follows reports on Friday indicating the White House senior adviser attempted to sway a United Nations Security Council vote against an anti-settlement resolution passed just before Donald Trump took office, which condemned the structure of West Bank settlements.

Kushner has updated his security clearance form three times. It is a felony to omit material information on a security clearance form.

The first son-in-law has repeatedly amended his financial records since his initial filing in March, along with three separate revisions to his security clearance application. Despite correcting his financial history on multiple occasions, he has yet to include his role as co-director to the family foundation.
