Trump left the White House in January and confronted a heap of legal cases and his adult children can be alleged for committing crimes especially Ivanka Trump is somehow connected to the Trump Organization.
A special case regarding the ill use of inaugural funds back in 2017 where she worked as an executive vice president since 2005, Ivanka expediently found a way to seem confused about one of her father’s longtime colleagues.
District of Columbia Attorney General’s Office terminated her last December and chose to make a move out of Donald’s playbook — deflect, deflect, deflect.
The former senior White House advisor was asked a very simple question, “Who is Allen Weisselberg?” The simple answer, as tweeted by the former senior advisor (and former friend) to Melania Trump, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, is, “Allen Weisselberg has been the Trump Organizations CFO and the Trump Family’s BOOKKEEPER since the 1970s.”
Ivanka chose a shaded reply in the statement, seeming disordered as to his role within the corporation.
“He is the — I would have to see what his, his — I don’t know his exact title, but he’s an executive at the company,” she said to the investigator. Not only did Weisselberg work for Ivanka’s grandfather, Fred Trump, but he also controlled her father’s finances and he appeared several times on Celebrity Apprentice.
Even Donald’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen seems to agree that Ivanka learned a thing or two from her dad.
“Donald taught @IvankaTrump well…I don’t know, I wasn’t there, Allen who? it was someone else’s fault,” he tweeted. “Soon they will all answer for their dirty deeds!”
As someone who worked intimately with the former president for 12 years, Cohen has been predicting jail time for many members of the Trump family. He recently told MSNBC’s Joy Reid, “I do have to say that my credibility, I believe, is going to end up getting Donald, Don Jr., Ivanka, Jared, Eric, Weisselberg, his kids, some orange jumpsuits.”
The Washington, D.C. inquiry is dissimilar from the New York State and Manhattan attorney generals’ criminal investigation into the Trump Organization. In New York, they are eager to get Weisselberg to collaborate with establishments and help take the weight of their extra research into his taxes.
This likely power move is likely why Ivanka was required to pretend unawareness when it came to how important of a role Weisselberg played in the Trump Organization for decades. The family has been able to slip by many of their offenses over the years, but they may not be able to outpace the law this time around.
