  • Jared Kushner Ivanka Trump made at least $82 million last year while serving in the White House

Newly-released financial disclosure forms show that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump made a killing in outside income over the course of their work as advisors to President Donald Trump.

She also made $3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. and more than $2 million from severance from the Trump Corp. past year.

Trump and Kushner aren't the only White House staffers raking in the millions, however.

Kushner, the president's son-in-law, reported assets of at least $174 million at the end of 2017, according to a person familiar with the couple's financial disclosure documents.

Altogether, Ivanka Trump made at least $12 million in 2017.

The financial disclosures released by the White House and filed with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics routinely show both assets and debts compiled in broad ranges between low and high estimates, making it hard to precisely chart the rise and fall of the financial portfolios of federal government officials.

The White House released financial disclosure forms for other officials, including National Security Adviser John Bolton, who reported $2.2 million in income in the year and three months before he joined the administration. Trump also received a $289,300 book advance and $747,622 from three companies tied to the Trump Organization's global projects.

Mr Kushner's 2017 assets were worth between $179m and $735m, while Ms Trump's were worth between about $55.3m and $75.6m, according to a Washington Post analysis.

"T$3 heir net worth remains largely the same, with changes reflecting more the way the form requires disclosure than any substantial difference in assets or liabilities", said Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Abbe Lowell, the ethics counsel for Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

Despite public scrutiny of their finances amid questions of conflicts of interest, a spokesman for the couple's lawyer said Trump and Kushner have followed the rules. He also earned at least $5 million in passive income from holdings in real estate developments, and reported more than $5 million in capital gains in 2017 just from the sale of one shopping mall, in the Bronx. The president's son-in-law closed out a line of credit from Valley National Bank that had between $5 million and $25 million in debt a year ago.
