Washington Post ran a chunk in which Kushner alleged then-President Donald Trump’s second chief of staff, John F. Kelly, “shoved” Kushner’s wife, Ivanka Trump as he stormed out of an Oval Office meeting.Kushner says Kelly was seen as having a “Jekyll and Hyde” character by some White House staff.“One day he had just marched out of a contentious meeting in the Oval Office,” Kushner writes. “Ivanka was walking down the main hallway in the West Wing when she passed him.

Unaware of his heated state of mind, she said, ‘Hello, chief.’“Kelly shoved her out of the way and stormed by. She wasn’t hurt, and didn’t make a big deal about the altercation, but in his rage Kelly had shown his true character.”Related: Ivanka and Jared blasted as “despicable” by partner of fallen Capitol officerKushner says that within an hour of the encounter, Kelly visited Ivanka to offer a “meek apology”, which she accepted.Responding to the allegation, Kelly emailed the Washington Post an unequivocal denial.“I don’t recall anything like you describe,” he said.“It is inconceivable that I would EVER shove a woman.

Inconceivable. Never happen,” Kelly wrote. “Would never intentionally do something like that. Also, don’t remember ever apologizing to her for something I didn’t do.
