Jared Kushner To Be Senior Adviser To Father-In-Law Donald Trump

President-elect Donald Trump announced Monday that he was naming his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as a senior White House adviser. Kushner, the 35-year-old husband of Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, served as a close adviser during the campaign, and has provided input on hiring decisions during the transition. Ivanka Trump will not immediately take on a formal role. Jared Kushner’s attorney, WilmerHale partner Jamie Gorelick, said Kushner was prepared to resign as head of his family’s real estate business and shed investments before taking on a White House job. Gorelick said she was confident that a federal anti-nepotism law would not be an obstacle, although critics said the legislation was designed to prevent just such a case.
