STATEMENT: If James Comer Really Believes in Familial Conflicts of Interest He Must Join With the Current Oversight Chair to Look at Foreign Influence on Jared Kushner

Dec 7, 2022

Washington D.C. – Today, the Washington Post reported that Democrats are ramping up investigations into Jared Kushner’s business dealings while serving in the White House. In response, Congressional Integrity Project senior adviser Brad Woodhouse said the following:

“Anyone who purports to be interested in the conflicts of a president’s family would have to be interested in an investigation into Jared Kushner and his business dealings while he was a White House employee working steps away from the Oval Office. So why doesn’t James Comer join with the current chair of the House Oversight Committee to see if the former president’s son-in-law was influenced by foreign actors? Since he was a White House employee at the time, it’s imperative that the American people find out if his connections affected United States policy in any way. Anyone who claims to not be interested in this line of investigation while wanting to investigate President Biden’s family is not on the level.”
