‘The issue is personal for Kushner’: Jared and Jeff Sessions to launch prison ‘reform’ listening tour

Published

on

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner will officially launch a listening session on prison reform, Axios reported Wednesday.

Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, has been quietly exploring the issue for six months.

Policy solutions have yet to be unveiled.

“The administration is exploring possible legislative proposals and administrative actions,” Axios reported. “An early step could include a push for public awareness involving churches.”

“The issue is personal for Kushner, given the former imprisonment of his father, developer Charles Kushner,” Axios reminded.

Kushner’s father, Charles Kushner, served 14 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to 18 counts of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion and witness tampering.

The witness tampering charge resulted from Charles Kushner hiring a prostitute to seduce his sister’s husband in retaliation for cooperating with federal investigators.

The case was prosecuted by then-United States Attorney Chris Christie, a Trump campaign adviser who was unceremoniously dumped as head of the White House transition team.

Both Kushner and Attorney General Sessions have faced allegations of impropriety in the Russia collusion and cover-up investigations.
