In the tumultuous era of Donald Trump’s presidency, his daughter Ivanka Trump, and son-in-law Jared Kushner entered the White House with not only a lack of political experience but also deeply troubled finances. They left with millions.

Ivanka and Jared, often referred to as “Javanka,” didn’t get paid for their jobs, but made at least $172m from outside activities, potentially reaching as high as $640 million. In his final year working for his father-in-law, Jared even established a holding company in a tax haven in the Caribbean.

Yet, in a curious tale of power, privilege, and questionable financial dealings, Javanka has seemingly mastered the art of eluding indictment despite lingering clouds of corruption and ethical concerns.

While the recent federal grand jury indictment of former President Donald Trump on multiple charges made headlines, conspicuously absent from the legal fray are Ivanka and  Jared. The duo, once senior advisers in the Trump White House, has faced accusations of leveraging their positions for personal gain, yet the legal spotlight has somehow missed them.

Observers are left questioning the judicial blind spot that appears to surround Javanka, especially considering their involvement in questionable dealings during their time in the corridors of power. Kushner’s role as an ad-hoc Middle East diplomat, orchestrating the Abraham Accords, now carries a shadow of suspicion, with revelations suggesting simultaneous financial gains for his private equity venture, Affinity Partners, from the very countries involved in the accords.

One of the more eyebrow-raising financial maneuvers involves Kushner’s securing of a substantial investment commitment from Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, controlled by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS). Despite objections from the fund’s board and Kushner’s lack of private equity experience, the windfall materialized less than six months after leaving the White House in the form of $2 Billion dollars.

The ethical tightrope walked by Javanka during their tenure in the Trump administration also extends to Kushner’s controversial defense of MBS in the aftermath of the Jamal Khashoggi murder, even after the CIA implicated MBS in the crime. The question persists: How have they managed to avoid legal consequences despite such ethically questionable actions?

As the legal noose tightens around figures like Donald Trump, one cannot help but wonder about the curious immunity seemingly enjoyed by Javanka.

As investigations continue into the financial dealings of public figures, the question lingers: Will Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s legal charmed life endure, or will justice eventually catch up with the money-grabbing couple?
