President-elect Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner will become senior advisor to the president, NBC News is reporting.
Jared Kushner is the husband of Ivanka Trump.
Donald Trump was being very careful of how he appoints family members to his cabinet, as he does not want to violate a federal anti-nepotism law. However, sources close to the Trump circle has revealed that the president elect had no choice as Ivanka forced his hands.
The source said that Ivanka threatened to reveal family secrets that could sink president-elect Trump if he did not hire her husband to his cabinet. The source also said that Ivanka is demanding that she gets the wing on the white house that is usually reserved for the first lady.
Exactly what secret Ivanka is hiding from the public was not revealed by the source.
Kushner’s lawyer said in a statement on Monday, “Mr. Kushner is committed to complying with federal ethics laws and we have been consulting with the Office of Government Ethics regarding the steps he would take,” reports NBC News.
