The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, California’s Rep. Adam Schiff, just gave Ivanka Trump some very bad news about the Russia investigation.
It turns out the First Daughter is a suspect.
Just when she thought she might avoid the legal inferno her father Donald Trump and husband, senior White House advisor Jared Kushner, have brought on themselves, it turns out revelations of her own involvement in their state crimes have attracted deeper scrutiny.
Schiff has called for House Intel chair Devin Nunes to bring “dozens” more witnesses to testify before the committee, including Ms. Trump, who recently found herself swept up in the maelstrom of details unfolding around the Trump-Russia conspiracy.
Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Kremlin lawyer — who met with Kushner, now-indicted former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, and Ivanka’s brother, Don Jr. at the infamous June 9, 2016 meeting, where she offered “dirt” on Hillary Clinton in exchange for a pro-Russia platform from the Trump campaign and the lifting of sanctions should Donald Sr. reach the Oval Office — told NBC News last week that a woman looking exactly like Ivanka Trump warmly greeted her at the Trump Tower elevator as she left the meeting.
A second source close to the situation has corroborated that the woman who met Veselnitskaya at the elevator was indeed Ivanka.
Unfortunately, Rep. Nunes (R-CA) is unlikely to heed Schiff’s request willingly, as he has been helping Trump obstruct justice by holding up the House investigation because he himself participated the Trump-Russia conspiracy.
Today’s The Hill reports that House Intel Democrats are considering taking a page from the Senator Dianne Feinstein book of power moves by, “publishing a report detailing how GOP members tried to hinder the investigation, including by refusing to call witnesses.”
May the middle-aged congressmen show as much chutzpah as the 84-year-old Feinstein and courageously reveal to the American public the campaign of obfuscation that congressional Republicans have launched to protect their Criminal-in-Chief.
Ivanka — who, thanks to a corrupt New York D.A., narrowly missed being indicted for fraud in 2012 — likes to play innocent when it suits her purposes.
