Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 02, 2020

[A]n initial analysis by NBC News found that properties owned by the Trump Organization as well as the Kushner Companies, owned by the family of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, profited from the [loan] program. Over 25 PPP loans worth more than $3.65 million were given to businesses with addresses at Trump and Kushner real estate properties, paying rent to those owners. Fifteen of the properties self-reported that they only kept one job, zero jobs or did not report a number at all.

*The loans to Trump and Kushner properties included a $2,164,543 loan to the Triomphe Restaurant Corp., at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in New York City. The company reported the money didn't go to keeping any jobs. It later closed.

*Two tenants at 725 5th Avenue, Trump Tower, received more than $100,000 and kept only three jobs.

*Four tenants at the Kushner-owned 666 5th Avenue combined received more than $204,000, and retained only six jobs.

"Many months and broken promises later, the court-ordered release of this crucial data while the Trump administration is one foot out the door is a shameful dereliction of duty and flagrant mismanagement of a program that millions of workers and small businesses needed to get through this pandemic," Kyle Herrig, president of Accountable.US, an accountability watchdog, said in a statement.

"Only now - after its hand has been forced, hundreds of thousands of small businesses have gone under, and millions of taxpayer dollars were wasted " has this administration pulled back the curtains to reveal the malpractice going on behind the scenes," Herrig said.

Trump and Kushner profit while millions of Americans languish in financial ruin. Quelle surprise.

This is nothing more than the opposition party, acting like the opposition.

How do you know if it's fraud? If there's a tRump involved.

Of course they did.

Investigate the cabinet and you'll probably find many many more instances of administration officials getting scores from those loans.

That's why the ensured the money would be difficult of impossible to track.

It's a shameful waste but who didn't know this was going to happen when oversight of the distributions of funds was blocked in the beginning.

Gee....ya think?!!!

Any decent Republic would
have removed them right after
they lost the election.

We need to fix our Constitution. No President should get a "lame duck" season after losing an election. He/she should be out of the WH the day after the election. His/her cabinet should be unemployed too. All of his EOs should be immediately ignored.
