New York probes Kushner Companies' false filings

Real estate company owned by family of Trump's son-in-law routinely filed false documents with New York City claiming it had no rent-regulated tenants in its buildings, according to AP.

    The real estate company owned by the family of US President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is under investigation for falsifying documents with the New York Buildings Department.

    A local tenants' rights group says Kushner Companies regularly lied about the number of its tenants in rent-controlled apartments, in an attempt to evade procedures meant to protect low-income housing.

    The Associated Press reports the false documents were filed while Jared Kushner was running the company, and before he joined the Trump White House.
