Trump Son-In-Law Jared Kushner Cleared To Work In The White House - BuzzFeed News: "Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, has gotten the all-clear from US Department of Justice lawyers to serve as a senior advisor in the White House.
The Office of Legal Counsel, a small office within the Justice Department that gives legal advice to the executive branch, issued an opinion on Jan. 20 concluding that Trump’s decision to bring on Kushner wouldn’t violate the federal anti-nepotism law.
“In choosing his personal staff, the President enjoys an unusual degree of freedom, which Congress found suitable to the demands of his office,” the office said.
The legal opinion was signed by Daniel Koffsky, the deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Counsel. Koffsky has worked at DOJ for more than 20 years and received a lifetime service award in 2013. The news release from the department described him as “a living repository of OLC’s precedents and practice.”"
