Conservative commentator Pundit Ann Coulter mocked White House adviser Jared Kushner by claiming he could be in trouble for his father ‘buying’ his Harvard University admission in reference to the college bribery scandal.
Coulter did not name Kushner in the tweet on Tuesday, but it was obvious she was referring Donald Trump’s son-in-law as she mocked him previously that day.
She tweeted on Tuesday night along with the hastag #CollegeCheatingScandal: ‘BLIND ITEM: Which top presidential advisor could be in hot water over his father buying his Harvard admission SOONER than he’ll be indicted by Mueller?.’

She mentioned the Kushners in reference to the college admissions scandal and implied his father’s donation to the college influenced his admission to the ivy-league University
Just an hour earlier , she mentioned the Kushners in reference to the college admissions scandal.
She claimed: ‘Boy, the price has gone up! Charles Kushner paid Harvard a mere $2.5 million to get Jared into Harvard,’ Coulter tweeted.
‘CNN: Parents paid up to $6.5 million to get their kids into college. #CollegeCheatingScandal.’
ProPublica editor Daniel Golden investigated Kushner’s admission into the Ivy League school in his 2006 book The Price of Admission.
In 2016, Golden wrote a story about his book, which focused on a $2.5 million donation that Kushner’s father, real estate developer Charles Kushner, made to Harvard in 1998. Kushner was accepted into the university shortly afterwards.
Golden wrote that Kushner’s grades and test scores did not seem at the level to merit acceptance.
A spokeswoman for the family real estate business Kushner Companies, Risa Heller, told Newsweek that it it was ‘false’ that there was a link between Jared Kushner’s admission and his father’s donation.
Kushner’s parents ‘are enormously generous and have donated over 100 million dollars to universities, hospitals and other charitable causes,’ Heller said at the time.
Robert Mueller is currently investigating alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 Presidential election campaign.
The broad investigation could be setting the stage for an impeachment effort, although Democratic leaders have pledged to investigate all avenues and review special counsel Robert Mueller’s upcoming report before trying any drastic action.
The aggressive investigation that threatens to shadow the president through the 2020 election season with potentially damaging inquiries into his White House, campaign and family businesses.

Targets include his sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, Jared Kushner, disgraced former lawyer Michael Cohen and former adviser Roger Stone, who is awaiting trial.
He added: ‘Jared Kushner was an excellent student in high school and graduated from Harvard with honors.’
Kushner’s acceptance into Harvard came under scrutiny again after 50 people were charged Tuesday in the largest college admissions bribery case the Department of Justice has ever prosecuted.
Prosecutors say parents paid ‘anywhere between $200,000 and $6.5 million’ for Singer’s services.
Felicity Huffman allegedly paid $15,000, which she disguised as a charitable donation, to arrange for someone to change her daughter’s answers during the SAT exams.
Charging documents state that both Huffman and her husband, actor William H Macy, agreed to the plan to help daughters Sofia, 18.
They allegedly discussed using it again for their daughter Georgia, 16, but decided against it.

The scheme worked in several ways. First, parents would pay obtain a medical document which said their child needed extra time to complete either their SAT or ACT test.
Once they got it, they would take the test in one of two centers that was controlled by the scheme’s ‘mastermind’ Rick Singer. One was in Hollywood and one was in Texas.
Huffman has been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud. A magistrate judge ordered the actress to restrict her travel to the continental US and she surrendered her passport to the court.
Lori Loughlin’s and husband Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 to get their daughters Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella, 20, into the University of Southern California.
They are among 50 people, including Loughlin, who have been accused of paying bribes to get their children into America’s top colleges.

The scheme was uncovered by the FBI and federal prosecutors in Boston, who discovered that dozens of parents had paid a total of $6million in bribes to get their children into elite schools including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, and UCLA.
In many instances the children were unaware that their parents had paid these bribes, according to federal documents.
Most of those charged either paid to get higher SAT scores or faked an athletic resume that, with the participation of a bribed college coach, helped the children get accepted to a college as a team’s recruit.
Prosecutors said in court on Tuesday that some students also lied about their ethnicity on applications to take advantage of affirmative action.
William Rick Singer, the founder of Key Worldwide Foundation, had been identified as the alleged mastermind behind the scandal.
The documents claim that since 2011, Singer has received $25million from parents which was used to payoff or bribe individuals who could ‘designate their children as recruited athletes, or other favored admissions categories’.
