Published

on

The family of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law is reportedly seeking a $1.15 billion in federal loans to purchase apartments in Virginia and Maryland, reports Bloomberg.

According to the report, Kushner Companies, the real-estate firm owned by White House adviser Jared Kushner’s family is seeking the funds from federally-owned lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The loans would then be used to purchase “6,030 apartments across 16 properties,” reports Bloomberg.

The report goes on to state that the family previously had more than $500 million from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac at the time Jared Kushner separated himself from the family’s real estate business to join his wife, Ivanka, in the White House.

According to the report, “President Trump appointed Joseph Otting to oversee the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which regulates Fannie and Freddie. Otting previously served as CEO of OneWest Bank, founded by now-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, an ally of Kushner’s in the West Wing.”

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
