Ken Kurson, a close friend of Kushner, faces nearly a decade in prison.
One thing you‘ve probably noticed about the Trump-Kushner clan is that despite claiming otherwise, they almost exclusively surround themselves with total sleazebags, many of whom are criminals to boot. Because Trump himself is one of history’s biggest slimeballs, on his way out of the White House, he pardoned a whole bunch of friends and allies, including Jared Kushner’s dad, Charles, disgraced national security adviser Mike Flynn, and commuted the sentence of longtime adviser Roger Stone.
One of the other people who got a nod from Trump was Kushner pal Ken Kurson, which allowed him to escape federal charges for cyberstalking and harassment. But unfortunately for Kurson, whose behavior had been described by accusers in the federal complaint as “diabolical,” a pardon from the president does not preclude one from being hit with state charges, as he learned on Wednesday.
Yes, seven months after Trump let him get off scot-free for some allegedly deeply creepy shit, Kurson, an editor at the New York Observer under Kushner’s ownership, has been criminally indicted for unlawfully spying on his ex-wife by secretly accessing her computer, among other things.
