It’s looking more and more like being under investigation is a Trump family tradition. Perhaps if we didn’t elect a con man to the Oval Office in the first place, this wouldn’t be an ongoing problem.
However, no, Donald Trump was put in the Oval Office by the Electoral College sans popular vote, and that’s where we are right now as a country.
With investigations surrounding Trump, Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, and several others, Congress is now looking at Ivanka as their latest target.
According to Think Progress:
“Led by Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), more than 20 House Democrats penned a letter to acting F.B.I Director Andrew McCabe Wednesday calling for an investigation into whether or not Ivanka Trump was truthful in her application for a top-level security clearance. The application, known as an FS-86, requires applicants to disclose foreign contacts, meetings, and business interests by the clearance holder in addition to those of their spouse and siblings.”
““Did she disclose her husband’s meeting with Kislyak and Gorkov? Did she disclose her brother’s and husband’s meeting with Veselnitskaya? Did she accurately disclose her own foreign contacts in her initial filing, which reports suggest may be numerous?” asks House Democrats in the letter to the F.B.I. “If in fact she did accurately disclose these meetings, who at the White House knew of Mr. Kushner’s and Mr. Trump Jr’s multiple contacts with Russian officials before they were made public? And, most importantly, did she discuss any of these meetings with the President, and, if so, when?”
All of this puts into question her future with the White House.
To be blunt, if she lied, she could be facing jail time along with many in the Trump mafia. After all, Ivanka’s husband Jared was in attendance at the meeting in Trump Tower alongside Donald Trump Jr. when they met with several Kremlin-connected Russians.
Hopefully, investigators get to the bottom of this sooner rather than later to protect the integrity of the United States.
