Skip to comments.AP Exclusive: Kushner Cos. filed false NYC housing paperwork
Posted on 03/18/2018 11:57:19 AM PDT by blueyon
When the Kushner Cos. bought three apartment buildings in a gentrifying neighborhood of Queens in 2015, most of the tenants were protected by special rules that prevent developers from pushing them out, raising rents and turning a tidy profit.
But that's exactly what the company then run by Jared Kushner did, and with remarkable speed. Two years later, it sold all three buildings for $60 million, nearly 50 percent more than it paid.
Now a clue has emerged as to how President Donald Trump's son-in-law's firm was able to move so fast: The Kushner Cos. routinely filed false paperwork with the city declaring it had zero rent-regulated tenants in dozens of buildings it owned across the city when, in fact, it had hundreds.
While none of the documents during a three-year period when Kushner was CEO bore his personal signature, they provide a window into the ethics of the business empire he ran before he went on to become one of the most trusted advisers to the president of the United States.
"It's bare-faced greed," said Aaron Carr, founder of Housing Rights Initiative.....

Lemme guess, THIS TOO falls under the “scope” of Bob Mueller’s appointment. Right?

..........we can still blame it on the Russians. And of course Trump.
How about, I don’t like what the company did AND I don’t like socialist rent control laws.
Let’s not investigate the Clinton Foundation, shall we?
THIS IS IT! MUELLER, BREAK OUT YOUR FINEST CHAMPAGNE! WE GOT THE BASTARD NOW!
Of course, So do delinquent parking tickets and library fines.
Mueller even has a juvenile justice department running for Bannon.
You may not like Kushner and I may not like Kushner. However, this is nothing but an ABC anti-Trump hit piece.
Read the “article” again, slowly. This is an anti-Trump hit piece.
They’re horrid socialist laws, but laws nonetheless. If Jared or his company broke the laws, and it can be proven, then they’ll face the consequences.
You actually believe this?
And if you have family they can be passed down / transferred to them basically forever as rent-controlled.
“””All I can say is bye bye Jared “”
My comment means the left will not stop until they take Potus down.....they will take out Jared on this. Jared is gone..........rightfully or NOT.
The goal is to force Trump to protect his son by firing Mueller! Then if they have the political clout to impeach Trump over it.
Remember impeachment: both the articles of impeachment & the trial for removal from office are political acts. You don’t need a legal reason if you have the votes. The goal is like at a minimum political damage (with Slick )if no removal from office.
Never did trust him and I think he is making matters worse for DJT.
Kushner’s company claimed there were no rent control tenants and the city approved it’s request. So wouldn’t a person of normal intelligence assume that the city had records of the tenants in rent-controlled units? And if rent control tenants were found in those records at the Kushner projects, permission would have been denied? I’m taking the side of the apartment developers and owners here. Most local housing laws are seriously slanted in favor of tenants and apartment owners have huge financial investments in their properties. I’ve seen buildings full of people that don’t pay their rent, don’t bath, don’t speak English, don’t exercise any behavioral self control and have brigades of SJW lawyers keeping their eviction cases tied up for eons. Sometimes I marvel that owners don’t set their own buildings or fire or rig gas explosions.
“Lemme guess, THIS TOO falls under the scope of Bob Muellers appointment. Right?”
Of course, IDIOT. One of the tenants that got shafted has a grandmother who immigrated from Russia just before WW2.
Therefore - collusion.
Meanwhile Andrew Cuomo’s butt buddy and top aid, Joseph Percoco, just got convicted of 3 felonies and not a peep from the MSM.
