Fee or fine?

Well – at last it is out in the open. Jared Kushner got fined. As everybody knows: he was dishonest in one or to compulsory disclosures. So he got fined, for one of these.

Guess what? Jared Kushner failed to disclose a loan of nearly $ 300 million – from that Russian “launderette” called Deutsche Bank. The bank which itself got fined for laundering Russian mobster money.

That loan was not enough. He was also trying to raise a financial prop-up with or through a Qatari businessman. When the Qatar help did not materialize, because the businessman or persons got savvy, Kushner ensured Saudi Arabia and the UAE went after Qatar.

Anyway: that Deutsche Bank trifle was just one of many things the Kush forgot to disclose.

So he got fined.

How much?

Jared Kushner was fined $ 200. Nope – no mistake!
Jared Kushner got fined $ 200 over forgetting to disclose a loan the size of nearly $ 300 million.

Well, those $ 200 certainly must have made a dent in Jared Kushner’s pocket-money.

Seems to me, millionaires who are caught doing illegal things do not get fined.
Unlike the rest of the world, they pay fees – not fines.
