Trump Family Pal Arrested for Cyberstalking Following Divorce


Ken Kurson, a close friend of presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and a one-time speechwriter for Donald Trump, was arrested by FBI agents Friday on cyberstalking charges. Federal prosecutors allege Kurson, a cryptocurrency entrepreneur who was editor-in-chief of The New York Observer when Kushner was the newspaper’s owner, “engaged in a pattern of stalking and harassment against three victims” who include a former friend he blamed for ruining his marriage.

The alleged harassment reportedly occurred during Kurson’s tenure at the Observer.

According to a complaint unsealed today in Brooklyn federal court, Kurson’s alleged crimes came to light in 2018 while undergoing an FBI background check for an unpaid advisory role in the Trump administration that The Daily Beast first reported on.
