Jared Kushner, son-in-law of former President Donald Trump, testified last month before a federal grand jury about Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, according to The New York Times and CNN.
Kushner testified at a federal courthouse in Washington, D.C., where he reportedly told the grand jury that Trump truly believed the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him.
The federal investigation being led by special counsel Jack Smith is focusing on Trump’s failed efforts to stay in power by falsely claiming the election was fraudulent and filing frivolous lawsuits to overturn fair election results.
Former New York City Mayor and Trump’s former attorney, Rudy Giuliani, was recommended for disbarment in Washington, D.C., earlier this month over his efforts to help Trump overturn the election. Giuliani filed a lawsuit claiming there was election fraud in Pennsylvania, where now-President Joe Biden won by more than 80,000 votes. Last month, the Justice Department interviewed Giuliani to discuss his role in trying to overturn the results.
