Federal authorities have arrested a close ally of President Donald Trump’s family who is also a longtime associate of Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, The New York Times reported Friday.
According to the report, Ken Kurson, a close friend of Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, was taken into federal custody in Brooklyn, NY, on charges of cyberstalking after investigators uncovered threatening messages relating to his divorce.
The Times reported that Kurson worked under Kushner as editor-in-chief of The New York Observer when the president’s son-in-law owned the publication. Kurson now owns a media company and works in the cryptocurrency industry. He also helped write a speech for the president’s 2016 campaign, according to the report.
