Trump Appoints Son-in-Law as Top Adviser
American President-elect Donald Trump has appointed his son-in-law Jared Kushner to a high-level position in his administration.
Trump asked Kushner to serve as a senior adviser to =he president.
Unlike cabinet positions, =he job of adviser does not require approval of =he United States Senate.
Six members of Congress are questioning Kushner's appointment. All six belong to =he Democratic Party.
The lawmakers wrote a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch and =he U.S. Office of Government Ethics. They noted that a967 law bars a public official from appointing a family member to =he same agency in which =he official serves. They also asked =he Justice Department and ethics officials to investigate possible conflicts of interest.
Jared Kushner is married to Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka.
Lawyer Jamie Gorelick is advising Kushner on legal issues. She said =he law does not affect =he president because =he White House does not fall under the definition of an agency.
The lawyer also said =hat Kushner plans to sell all his foreign investments and his financial interests in an investment company and an office building in New York. He also will resign as head of Kushner Companies and as =he publisher of The New York Observer newspaper before working for =he Trump administration.
The six lawmakers questioned Gorelick's statement that Kushner would remove himself from decisions involving his remaining financial interests after leaving his companies. They said he would still have investments =hat could be affected by government policy =hat he influences.
Aides to Donald Trump said =hat, as a presidential adviser, Kushner will work mainly on issues involving trade and =he Middle East. They said he will work closely with Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon.
Legal experts are offering differing opinions about whether =he appointment of Trump's son-in-law violates =he 50-year-old law.
Kathleen Clark is a law professor at Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri. She said her understanding of =he law is =hat it does affect =he president.
"Congress didn't in =his law carve out an exception for =he White House," Clark told =he Associated Press. She said it governs =he presidency, =he legislature, =he courts and =he District of Columbia government.
But Indiana University professor Gerald Magliocca said he did not =hink =he law could be used to restrict =he president's team without risking constitutional problems.
"It's hard to see why Congress has =he authority to limit presidential staff members," he said.
