April 1 (UPI) — The White House released financial documents detailing millions of dollars in assets held by members of the senior staff.

The documents uploaded online provide information on assets held by White House aides including President Donald Trump‘s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, economic adviser Gary Cohn and chief strategist Steve Bannon, among others.

Kushner, a senior Trump adviser, gathered about $195 million in income and held assets that may potentially be worth more than $700 million when combined with those of his wife,Trump, who became a White House employee this week after serving as an informal adviser to her father.

Kushner’s disclosure document also listed positions in 267 separate entities including the Trump transition team and various property holdings in New York and New Jersey.

Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs president, held assets worth at least $230 million, but many simply listed as “over $1m.”

Bannon received $191,000 in consulting fees from Breitbart News in addition to other employment income from Bannon Strategic Advisors, a consultancy firm valued at as mucha as $25 million and least $1 million from Affinity Media Holdings.

Press Secretary Sean Spicer was paid $260,000 for his work as chief strategist and communications director at the Republican National Committee and Kellyanne Conway earned more than $800,000 for her consulting services.
