Conflicts of interest in the White House?

Latest news

    Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has a reputation for being one of the president’s closest and well listened to advisers.

    But his role in the White House is being scrutinised because of US media reports about the impact his business ties are having on US policy.

    Questions are being asked whether or not he’s misused his influence to secure money for his family’s business from foreign countries. Another concern is whether he helped Russian interference in Trump’s election campaign.

    This while the president’s appointed Middle East peace broker had his top level security clearance downgraded last week.

    Is that a sign of more chaos in the president’s inner circle?
