In 2018, the Trump administration offered Ken Courson a seat on the board of the National Endowment for the Humanities. As part of a routine pre-appointment background check, the FBI uncovered a string of divorce charges against Courson in 2015. Courson’s lawyer, Mark Mukasey, described his client as “a noble man, a loving father and a gifted writer,” and stated that the client would find the strength to cope with the situation:
“The alleged conduct is unlikely to merit federal prosecution. Ken will handle it, ”Mukasei said.
Trump family friend
Ken Courson was a longtime associate of Rudolph Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, and helped run his brief presidential campaign in 2008. He also served as editor-in-chief of the New York Observer when the publication was owned by the wife of Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump. It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that a member of the Ripple board of directors is at the center of scandals. In 2015, he was accused of harassing a doctor from Mount Sinai Hospital..
In the meantime, Ripple itself is actively exploring new countries to move its headquarters from the US due to the unjustified brutality of the regulatory authorities towards the cryptocurrency industry. In particular, Ripple is considering London as a new home.
According to the head of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse, it is the clarity of the position of the British regulator that has become the main reason why Ripple is considering London for the move. In addition to the UK, the company is also considering relocation to Switzerland, Singapore, Japan and the United Arab Emirates.
