U.S. federal judge, James Bredar, ruled on Friday that White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s family real estate company must release the identities of its investors. The judge stated that the public has a right to know because of Kushner's (and by association Trump's) presence in the case.
Accused of defrauding tenants in Baltimore-area properties, Kushner Company's real estate management division, Westminster Management, must submit a concealed document naming the partners by Feb. 9.
This could be a step on the path to victory for the tenants who were charged illegal fees, bullied to pay them, and threatened with eviction.
Twitter speculated about who the mysterious investors might be:

This is about to get interesting. I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be a bumpy ride for orange people and their families. By the way, spray tans, is that still a thing?— lynda ann rickman (@snaperific) January 28, 2018
Others questioned his security clearance:
You're going down son. Why does he still have a security clearance again? Oh, yeah. Repugnants with no backbone.— Judy Hilburn (@JudyHilburn2) January 28, 2018
And many just celebrated:
Every time I see this, I get a warm, fuzzy feeling. How I long to see that fatuous smirk wiped off his smug face. He truly reminds me of a quiet Martin shkreli.— Bunny Killer (@BunnyKiller9) January 28, 2018
So what will it all really mean for Kushner and Co.? Guess we'll just have to wait and see:
Can this really hurt him? He's not with the company anymore (?)— bijou (@bijou_ioff) January 28, 2018
