Jared Kushner’s brother has financial ties to company targeted in Trump’s inauguration subpoena

Published

on

New York prosecutors are examining an online payment processor linked to Jared Kushner’s brother as part of an investigation into President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee.

Investigators subpoenaed records from the committee, which raised a record-shattering $107 million, and its vendors and contractors, including the payment platform Stripe, reported Fortune.

The Manhattan Attorney’s Office subpoenaed records relating to Stripe, the payment processor used by Trump’s presidential campaign — as well as many other candidates, including Hillary Clinton.

There’s no indication at this point that investigators suspect Stripe of any wrongdoing, but the company’s inclusion in the subpoena raises eyebrows because one of its lead investors is Thrive Capital, which was co-founded by Josh Kushner.

Kushner, who remains the managing partner, is the brother of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and a senior White House adviser.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has questioned Russian oligarchs about donations made to the inaugural committee and the Trump campaign, but it’s not clear whether he is still investigating the matter or if he referred the case to prosecutors in Manhattan.

"Fallout from a legal dispute led to a series of bombshell reports about Falwell, which unearthed wacky details about, in the words of the New York Times, 'the friendship between Mr. Falwell, his wife, and a former pool attendant at the Fontainbleau hotel in Miami Beach; the family’s investment in a gay-friendly youth hostel, and purported sexually revealing photographs involving the Falwells,'" Egger writes.

Published

A 30-year-old Trump supporter from Rhode Island pleaded guilty to stalking and transmitting a threat this week after he sent dozens of emails to a Harvard professor that included threats to kill and eat them.

CBS Boston reports that Matthew Haviland earlier this year sent 28 emails to an unnamed Harvard professor who had been outspoken in favor of abortion rights and critical of Trump.

Some of the emails sent to the Harvard professor included threats involving cannibalism, such as "I will rip every limb from your body and eat it, piece by piece,” and “I will bite through your eyeballs while you’re still alive, and I will laugh while you scream.”
