President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is facing more scrutiny over his family’s real estate empire, Kushner Companies. On Monday, 20 current and former tenants of a Kushner Companies-owned property in New York City filed a $10 million lawsuit claiming they were harassed into leaving their rent-regulated apartments so the Kushners could turn the property into luxury condominiums. The tenants say the Kushners used harassment like “loud and obnoxious drilling” and a “constant cloud of toxic smoke and dust” in order to force tenants out.
