Charles Kushner, father of White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and founder of Kushner Companies, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post Wednesday to push back against the “crazy stuff” written about his company.

As a result, we have passed up many business opportunities that we normally would have pursued.”

“That might not be as alluring as some of the crazy stuff I read about my family and our business,” he continued. “But it happens to be the truth.”

The Kushners have most recently been accused by a New York councilman of skirting safety inspections and endangering tenants in various properties.
