Ivanka And Jared's Secret Service Detail Spent $3000 A Month On This
Jan 16 2021
With Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the agents also had to worry about finding a toilet. The studio - in a basement of a house in the Kushners' super-posh DC neighborhood - rents for a gasp-inducing $3,000 a month, which essentially means the government has spent more than $100,000 on a toilet.
In a damning Thursday report, the Washington Post claimed, citing anonymous sources, that Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have barred people from the Security Service assigned to them from using bathrooms at their Washington house, prompting the personnel to look for other ways to satisfy their urgent needs.
Those who are likely to work for him after White House are, "Nick Luna, the director of Oval Office Operations and Trump's "body man;" Molly Michael, a deputy assistant to Trump; and Cassidy Hutchinson, an aide to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows". But as per CNN report, agents protecting the couple do not enter the home.
A spokeswoman for the Secret Service would not comment.
But after multiple neighbors complained about the port-a-potty, the agents were forced to use bathrooms in former President Barack Obama's garage nearby, at the vice president's compound a mile up Massachusetts Avenue, and at businesses in the area. The Post says that account is disputed by a law enforcement official, who insisted the agents were kept out "at the family's request". "Their home will always be open to them and they have vast gratitude for their service over the last four years", wrote White House spokesman Judd Deere in an email.
Though neither Ivanka or Jared have spoken about the matter, the First Daughter did retweet Berkowitz's tweet, confirming that denies the reports about the Secret Service and her bathrooms. "They have been very nice to our grandchildren".
The property owner is chairwoman of the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities and is married to Jack Davies, founder of AOL International. CNN White House correspondent Kate Bennett reports the couple is "in a bit of a panic as they look to their future ... they're questioning everything now, from where they're going to live after the White House to what their careers will be".
