His lawyer informed that he will resign from the head of the family’s real estate business and also the head of the New York Observer newspaper in order to comply for the role. Jamie Gorelick, Kushner’s lawyer said that he will also divest ‘substantial assets’. She also added that he will not take any salary for the role as the Senior White house advisor.
