White House may address Hope Hicks' resignation, tariffs, gun control

FBI officials investigating allegations of Russian influence in the 2016 USA election are examining a series of meetings during the presidential transition between White House aide Jared Kushner and potential investors in his family's real-estate business, media reported.

Kushner's family business, Kushner Companies, approached Qatar several times, including last spring, about investing in its troubled flagship property at 666 Fifth Avenue in NY, but Qatar's sovereign wealth fund declined, NBC News said, citing two sources familiar with the discussions.

The Washington Post reports that Kushner has become "badly diminished" and "faded" since Gen. John Kelly downgraded his security clearance.

In the White House, however, the first daughter and her husband have "grown exasperated" with Kelly, the Times reported.

Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Josh Harris was considered for a job in President Donald Trump's White House while advising the administration on its infrastructure plan early a year ago, according to a report.

Kushner revised his financial disclosure forms multiple times to address "inadvertently omitted" assets; other forms were updated after the press revealed forgotten preelection meetings with, yes, Russian officials.

The Trump administration subsequently backed an economically punishing blockade against Qatar, led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, citing the country's support for terrorism as the impetus, the report emphasized. This is a blow for Jared and Ivanka, as he frequently wrestled with reporters over media coverage of the couple. A message left with the White House seeking comment Friday was not immediately returned.

The pair also believes that the chief of staff is against their presence in the White House, according to newspaper. Compounding this is the departure of Trump's closest aide Hope Hicks, as well as his increased tensions with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who the president reportedly lashes out at in private "with a vitriol that stuns members of his staff".

Kushner Cos. said in a statement that the implication that Kushner's position in the White House had affected the company's relationships with lenders is "without substantiation". She is not interested in the communications director job.
