Ivanka Trump's brother-in-law Josh Kushner spotted at Women's March on Washington
Joshua Kushner, the younger brother of President Donald Trump's son-in-law, posted on Instagram a photo of himself and his brother Jared at the White House taken the day after he was photographed at the Women's March on Washington. Gorelick had served as a senior Justice Department official under President Bill Clinton.
In his opinion, Koffsky, said the White House is not a federal "agency" and that the president's authority "permits him to make appointments to the White House Office that the anti-nepotism status might otherwise forbid". "We conclude that section 3110 [of the U.S. Code] does not bar this appointment", according to the 14-page memo from the Justice Department.
Joshua Kushner, a Harvard business school graduate who started the real estate tech company Cadre with his brother, is reportedly taking on some of Jared Kushner's business interests.
When spotted among the 500,000-strong crowd attending the march in Washington, Joshua Kushner, whose older brother Jared Kushner is now an adviser to Donald Trump, claimed he was just "observing" what was happening. Sons-in-law are included among the relations envisioned in the law, which was passed after President John F. Kennedy named his brother as attorney general.
Kushner was with Trump on Friday in the Oval Office as he carried out his first official acts in the White House.
"In choosing his personal staff, the President enjoys an unusual degree of freedom, which Congress found suitable to the demands of his office", Koffsky wrote.
The appointment of a relative to a formal position will subject that person to restrictions against conflicts of interest, Koffsky warned.
Kushner was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family in New Jersey and studied as an honors student in a private yeshiva high school in 1999. That opinion provided legal foundation for the use of aggressive tactics, though the department later backed down from its advice.
A spokesman for Josh Kushner toldEsquire last August that he is a "lifelong Democrat" who would not vote for Trump. He also, in 2015, was presented with an award for excellence in government service from the DC Bar.
