NEW YORK – A friend of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, who has been offered a low-level post in the administration, has been accused of cyberstalking in a heated divorce. Federal prosecutors in New York on Friday accused Ken Kurson of sending threatening messages to several people in a pattern of harassment amid his divorce proceedings in 2015.

Kurson, who works in the cryptocurrency industry, was once the editor of a Kushner-owned newspaper, The New York Observer.

Kurson’s attorney, Marc Mukasey, said in a statement: “The alleged conduct is hardly worthy of federal criminal prosecution. Ken will ignore it. ”

Kurson was released on $ 100,000 bail during his initial appearance Friday in a virtual hearing before a judge in Brooklyn federal court.

The investigation grew out of a background check after the Trump administration offered Kurson a 2018 seat on the board of directors of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
