The family real estate business of Jared Kushner reportedly received millions of dollars in loans from two companies whose leaders met with him in the White House previous year. Citigroup also lent Kushner Cos.

"I've summarized what I see as the bottom line here, that Mr. Kushner's business interests not only aren't over, but business interests in which he is actively invested - where he is getting a personal benefit - have received notable, and in some cases remarkably large, cash infusions from people who have had business dealings with him as a White House official", Maddow concluded. An even larger loan came from Citigroup, which lent the firm and one of its partners $325 million to help finance a group of office buildings in Brooklyn, New York.

And spokespeople for both companies asserted the loans granted to Kushner Companies were unrelated to the meetings.

"Stories like these attempt to make insinuating connections that do not exist to disparage the financial institutions and companies involved", spokeswoman Christine Taylor said.

In recent days, it has emerged that Kushner's White House security clearance has been downgraded.

Kushner Companies has said in a statement that Jared Kushner's White House role had no impact on the company's financial relationships.
