A group of Democratic lawmakers has sent a letter to White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner asking if since the election of his father-in-law Donald Trump he has discussed with foreigners the financing of a Manhattan office tower owned by his family.

The letter says the legislators are concerned Kushner has held a senior government post “while possibly seeking massive cash bailouts for 666 Fifth Avenue from foreign nationals or foreign entities.” It was signed by 13 Democratic lawmakers, including Ted Lieu, of California, Jamie Raskin of Maryland, and Brendan Boyle, of Pennsylvania.
