Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, had the second successful surgery to treat an apparent recurrence of thyroid cancer.
“I had surgery last week. It was very successful,” Kusher said in an interview with The National Desk. “That’s why I’m a little taller than usual,” he said, referring to why he was wearing a shirt and jacket tied around his neck.
A week earlier, Kushner was seen with his wife Ivanka Trump in Rochester, Minnesota as they visited the Mayo Clinic, which was treating him for the disease.
His latest surgery comes after Kushner first publicly announced his treatment in his new book, Breaking History: A White House Memoir.
Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, has had a second successful operation to treat an apparent recurrence of thyroid cancer and appeared in good spirits on Wednesday
Kushner gave The National Desk an interview in which he consistently pocketed his book
He wrote that he underwent similar surgery for thyroid cancer in 2019 while serving as Trump’s senior adviser in the White House.
On Wednesday, Kushner took to the airwaves to promote his new book, using his experience as a former senior adviser to President Trump to try to provide insight into the current issues Trump is facing.
Kushner spoke to Fox News last month while promoting the book. When asked about his recovery period, a source said he would “be back at it soon”.
Kushner took the time to blast the FBI for the way they handled last month’s raid on his Mar-a-Lago, Florida home and openly shared his frustration at how the organization had behaved, fueled by “political bias” towards his father-in-law.
He initially distanced himself from everything that had happened, stressing that he was “not involved in the recent situation”.
However, that didn’t stop him from giving his opinion on the players involved in August’s surprise attack.
“I think there are a ton of great agents in the FBI, but it’s pretty well known that they did nefarious things to spy on President Trump’s campaign and it seems there’s a political bias now,” Kusher suggested before.
“They fight over paperwork that could easily have been dealt with by a lawyer. The raid only mobilized those who mistrusted the FBI to have more.
“If the government wants to fight you, they have many tools at their disposal.”
When asked who is currently advising the former president, Kushner declined to delve into the issue, instead turning to promoting his new book about his time in the White House.
A photo of documents seized during the Aug. 8 search of Mar-a-Lago was released Tuesday night by the Justice Department
The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Tuesday night released an image of documents marked “Secret,” “Top Secret,” and “SCI” spread out next to a box on the floor.
The department claims the documents were among those seized in an FBI search of Trump’s home in connection with a case alleging he took White House materials when he left office.
On Wednesday morning, Trump accused the DOJ of attempting to make it appear as if he threw the documents on the floor or stored sensitive materials at his Florida residence that way.
Others claim that the picture was staged but appeared to have accidentally fallen to the ground, scattering the papers on the floor.
Former President Trump has made several angry posts against the FBI on his Truth Social
Donald Trump has claimed the FBI agents were responsible for dumping classified documents on the floor of Mar-a-Lago – and said they “might have pretended it was me”.
Trump took to his Truth Social platform Wednesday morning with a spate of posts condemning the FBI — including the special agent who resigned over the backlash over the Hunter Biden laptop investigation
Trump has urged FBI agents to come forward to expose any foul play or bias within the FBI.
The former president has claimed the FBI agents were responsible for dumping classified documents on the floor of Mar-a-Lago, claiming they “pretended it was me”.
“Terrifying how during the Mar-a-Lago raid the FBI threw documents on the ground at random (maybe as if it was me!) and then started photographing them for the public to see,” he said on Wednesday morning in a post by Truth Social.
‘Thought they wanted them kept secret? Luckily I declassified!’ he added during a series of posts condemning the FBI agent who resigned due to backlash over the Hunter Biden probe.
He was responding to the bombastic images that showed papers, many of which were marked “top secret,” on the carpet of his Florida mansion during the August 8 search.
The photos were released in a 36-page court filing, in which officials said they uncovered a conspiracy to obstruct an investigation into the discovery of government documents.
The DOJ accused the ex-president’s team of roaming around hiding classified documents they had previously been looking for.

“Mar-a-Lago is a 58-bedroom, 33-bathroom historic mansion on 17 acres of land stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway,” the suit points out. A DOJ official was shown a storage room where government documents were kept alongside clothing
Officials claimed they were “probably hidden and removed from a padlocked storage room” where Trump’s lawyers had said they were all being held together.
Three classified documents were found in a desk drawer, the DOJ revealed, in addition to more than 100 documents discovered in 13 boxes with classification marks at the former president’s residence.
“Three classified documents that were not in boxes but in Office 45 desks were also confiscated,” the filing said.
The new court filing also shot down attempts to get a “special master” — a third party — to review documents seized by the FBI, branding the move “unnecessary” and saying it would “damage national security interests.”
The FBI seized 33 boxes containing over 100 classified records in its raid — and found classified documents hidden in Trump’s office, according to the file.
The filing, released late Tuesday, contains the most detailed chronology of months of tense interactions between the DOJ and the ex-president’s team.
It offers another clue to the sheer volume of secret records retrieved from Mar-a-Lago.
It shows how investigators conducting a criminal investigation have focused not only on why the records were stored there, but also whether the Trump team intentionally misled them about the continued and unlawful presence of the top-secret documents has led.
The timeline set by the Justice Department made it clear that the extraordinary search of Mar-a-Lago came only after other efforts to recover the records had failed.
It shows that additional documents had remained at the villa, based on law enforcement suspicions, despite assurances that a “careful search” had taken them into account.
