Who Is Jared Kushner's Brother? He Was Reportedly At The Women's March

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner dance along with U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife first lady Melania Trump at the president's

The OLC issued a 14-page memo on Friday saying that the president is not barred from appointing Kushner because federal law grants the president special hiring authority that exempts him and his hires from anti-nepotism laws. It also prohibits anyone hired in contravention of the statute from being paid by the U.S. Treasury.

During the transition, Trump aides and lawyers worked to find a legal loophole around the nepotism ruling in order to bring Kushner into the West Wing.

"Kushner will work closely with chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Stephen Bannon to execute president-elect Trump's agenda", Trump's team said in announcing the position.

The office of White House counsel had asked the Justice Department for a definitive opinion on Kushner's role.

Sidman said another marcher spoke to Kushner, asking if he was indeed Jared Kushner's brother.

Ivanka Trump's brother-in-law has been spotted attending the anti-Trump Women's March protest. The appointment will avoid breaking federal anti-nepotism laws.

It brings the social network in-line with its rivals, adopting a design that contains obvious parallels with Facebook and Twitter. LinkedIn, whose design has been criticized for years, showed off the design's capabilities in a video published today (below).

Furthermore, The New York Times reports that the memo also cited a 1978 law that gives the president agency to appoint White House officials without adhering to other laws restricting employment.

The president's son-in-law will have to divest himself of holdings that are considered a conflict of interest and fill out a financial disclosure form.

Jared Kushner, who is set to take a key role in the Trump administration as a senior adviser and is tipped to lead Middle East peacemaking, supported Democrat candidates before he married Ivanka Trump and her father entered politics as a Republican.

Following his appointment, Kushner said he was "energized by the shared passion of the (president) and the American people.". "He has been incredibly successful, in both business and now politics".

The finding added that all employees of the Office of the President are bound by federal conflict of interest laws.
