Kushner, who lost his security clearance to White House following reports that he breached the ethics rule, found himself in the middle of another controversy after the report alleged that Kushner met with the top heads of the lending firms at the White House past year, after which he received an exorbitant sum of loan to aid his company's business ventures.
