The Guardian is reporting President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., has a previously undisclosed business relationship with Texas hedge fund manager Gentry Beach, who has enjoyed special access to top U.S. officials since Trump took office. Last year, Beach met with top officials from the National Security Council to push a plan to increase business opportunities in Venezuela. He’s also attended a private lunch with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. Ethics experts question whether Beach has gained the access to top administration officials because of his business relationship with Trump’s son.
