Charles Kushner, father of White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and founder of Kushner Companies, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post Wednesday to push back against the “crazy stuff” written about his company.

“Jared’s service to the country has brought unprecedented scrutiny of the Kushner Companies from the media and government investigators,” he writes. “We are happy to assist with all inquiries, but I must note that we are already voluntarily adhering to the strictest standards to avoid even the appearance of conflicts. As a result, we have passed up many business opportunities that we normally would have pursued.”

“That might not be as alluring as some of the crazy stuff I read about my family and our business,” he continued. “But it happens to be the truth.”

The Kushners have most recently been accused by a New York councilman of skirting safety inspections and endangering tenants in various properties.
