NEW: Whitehouse Dined With Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner, According to Reports
Tuesday, October 10, 2017
Whitehouse was reportedly among a bipartisan group of members of Congress who dined at Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump's house in the Kalorama neighborhood in Washington, D.C.
According to Axios -- the website founded in 2017 by Politico co-founder Jim VandeHei, Politico's former Chief White House correspondent Mike Allen, and former Politico Chief Revenue Officer Roy Schwartz -- the dinner took place last Tuesday.
Jonathan Swan for Axios reported the following:
Jared and Ivanka have been working with the White House Office of Legislative Affairs to host dinners with Democratic and Republican members of Congress at their home in the upscale D.C. neighborhood of Kalorama. The dinners, which have been going on for months but have been ramping up more recently, have focused on a range of policy issues, and have yet to result in any substantive leaks.
Capitol Hill sources told me that last Tuesday night, four senators visited Chez Javanka to talk about criminal justice reform: one Republican senator, Mike Lee, and three Democrats: Dick Durbin, Sheldon Whitehouse, and Amy Klobuchar. A source with knowledge of the event told me a handful of White House officials also attended, including Reed Cordish — a friend of Kushner's and assistant to the president — as well as White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter.
Whitehouse's office did not respond to request for comment.
