Former US President Donald Trump isn’t the only member of the extended Trump family whose businesses have raised eyebrows. During Donald’s multiple legal issues, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have been off doing their own thing in Miami, with Ivanka focusing on motherhood and Kushner allegedly focusing on his investment firm. However, his investment firm may be the next big thing under investigation.
Many Democrat officials have called upon Chair James Comer to subpoena an investigation into Kushner’s firm A Fin Management LLC (Affinity). Affinity is a private equity firm, which Kushner founded after leaving Donald’s administration, and has been a huge part of his $800 million net worth.
Since founding the firm, Affinity secured a $2 billion investment from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, along with $400 million in investment from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
Now, the timeline of this has been called into question, with Rep. Jamie Raskin sending a letter to Comer, requesting Comer to prove Kushner’s finances, and to not hold the investigation any further, per Rolling Stone via Yahoo.

Raskin requested a “subpoena to Jared Kushner’s investment firm, A Fin Management LLC (Affinity), to compel the production of documents regarding the extraordinary funding it received from foreign governments — including billions of dollars from sovereign wealth funds controlled by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) — shortly after Mr. Kushner left government service.”
Raskin says the timing “raises the significant possibility that there was a large quid pro quo shaping Mr. Kushner’s official actions in the White House, where he helped dramatically recast U.S. foreign policy toward Saudi Arabia.”
Along with Affinity, the Breaking History: A White House Memoir author has Kushner Companies, the Westminster Management Income, and his trusts that helped garner his staggering net worth.
