    Donald Trump on Monday named son-in-law Jared Kushner as senior White House advisor, rewarding the man widely credited as the brains behind his election but courting serious legal and ethical concerns.

    The baby-faced real estate developer and magazine publisher who turns 36 on Tuesday, will be the youngest top member of the administration, working closely with chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon.

    "Jared has been a tremendous asset and trusted advisor throughout the campaign and transition and I am proud to have him in a key leadership role in my administration," announced the Republican president-elect.

    The appointment was announced two days before Trump is set to give his first news conference since the November election, in which he will detail plans for his own company and potential conflicts of interest while in the White House.

    Kushner, who is married to Trump's eldest daughter Ivanka, was credited with masterminding a data-driven campaign that focused on message tailoring and harnessing social media to an unprecedented extent.

    The transition said that Kushner, whom Forbes estimates is worth $1.8 billion with his parents and brother, will forego his salary while serving in the administration.

    The announcement made no direct reference to nepotism laws or other potential conflicts of interest for which Kushner has hired a legal team.

    A federal law, passed after then-president John F. Kennedy appointed his brother as attorney general, prohibits any president from hiring a relative.

    - Will resign as CEO -Given Trump's reliance on Kushner, advisors have already spent weeks saying there could be more leeway for a White House rather than a cabinet job.

    But The New York Times at the weekend spotlighted what it called the "ethical thicket" that Kushner would have to navigate while advising his father-in-law on policy that could affect his business holdings.

    I will be very surprised if Trump makes it thru his administration without committing at least a half-dozen impeachable offenses.

    Not that the Republican-majority House would actually vote to do so, but in a rational world (hey a guy can dream).....

    This decision should definitely be seen as a " conflict of interest. " It's ridiculous

    DD: The WTBTS Real Estate business loves Kushner!

    Oh yeah. They sure do. Kushner was the focus of the documentary that landed the WTS in the position to buy a Telly Award.

    Interesting to note that the video that gained them that award, the one that featured Kushner, is no longer on the org's website:

    Was the org asked to take the video down? Did they decide to remove it on their own initiative or was the removal a request from the org's friend, Kushner, to remove it in anticipation for this appointment?

    *the article in the OP is no longer available - this link has the story:


    I wonder if Cedars copied that video? Very interesting.... The WTBTS whore sure loves to ride the merchants of the Earth.. Reverse Cowgirl?!??!??
