In November, Kevin Drum warned that liberals needed to start paying more attention to Jared Kushner.
Looks like he was right:
BREAKING: Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, will be named Senior Advisor to the President, per senior transition official. @NBCNews

There’s a law that Congress passed after RFK was Attorney General that forbids family from serving in the Executive, but lawyers for Trump are expected to argue that as long as the President-Elect’s son-in-law doesn’t take a paycheck for his work in the White House his appointment would not run afoul of the prohibition.
