Federal prosecutors in New York have issued subpoenas for Kushner Cos., the property business development company owned by the family of Jared Kushner, the Wall Street Journal reports.

According to the Journal, the subpoenas concern the company’s “investment-for-immigration program;” investigators are probing whether at least one New Jersey development was financed in part by individuals who believed they could secure green cards by investing in the building.

Thousands of absentee ballots could be uncounted in upcoming elections thanks to President Donald Trump's objection to a treaty which governs the international mail exchange for nearly 200 countries.

Citing disapproval of shipping rates it says unfairly favor China, the White House is weighing a potential withdrawal next month from the Universal Postal Union (UPU), a United Nations agency which allows for global postal service.

Without U.S. membership in the UPU, overseas voters could face high shipping rates for mailing their ballots as well as mass confusion, which could leave thousands of votes uncounted in 2019 and 2020.
