House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer acknowledged Thursday that he believes former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, “crossed the line of ethics” by accepting a $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia.
“I have been vocal that I think that what Kushner did crossed the line of ethics,” Comer told CNN’s “The Lead” host Jake Tapper, noting differences between Hunter Biden’s and Kushner’s business dealings.
And Jared Kushner actually has a legitimate business,” Comer argued.
Comer argued that while Kushner’s deal “crossed the line of ethics,” there are several differences between Hunter Biden’s and Kushner’s business dealings.
Kushner’s firm Affinity Partners received $2 billion from Saudi Arabia shortly after the end of the Trump presidency.
Kushner was tasked with handling Middle East policy during his time in the White House and built a relationship with the crown prince.
Comer announced Thursday he intends to subpoena members of the Biden family as part of his panel’s investigation of the president and first son. »
