Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump wouldn’t allow Secret Service to enter their D.C. mansion to use the bathroom so taxpayers have had to fork over more than $100,000 so the security detail for the couple could have a toilet.
The Washington Post reports: “Since September 2017, the federal government has been spending $3,000 a month — more than $100,000 to date — to rent a basement studio, with a bathroom, from a neighbor of the Kushner family. A White House spokesperson denied that Trump and Kushner restricted agents from their 5,000-square-foot home, with its six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, and asserted that it was the Secret Service’s decision not to allow the protective detail inside. That account is disputed by a law enforcement official familiar with the situation, who said the agents were kept out at the family’s request.”
