New York Attorney General Letitia James says Ivanka Trump is “stonewalling” her investigation in the civil fraud case against the Trump family by withholding specific information.
BUT HER EMAILS.
The $250 million lawsuit alleges that Donald Trump and his main three large adult children were involved in fraud by the Trump Organization.
Along with the Trumps, the suit alleges the company’s top executives inflated or deflated property values for tax benefits or to secure cheaper loans.
While Ivanka has broken from her father and brothers when it comes to her legal representation, she apparently is still fine with helping protect their reputations.
The Trumps have all failed to turn over emails and “other communications” to the NY AG’s office, but it’s Vanky who’s really holding things up.
In an April 25th letter to Judge Arthur Engoron, AG James specifically cited “an unexplained drop-off in emails for Ivanka Trump” as “one of the more significant issues” holding up the case.
AG James wrote that the entire Trump family is “failing to turn over emails and other communications during the civil litigation’s discovery phase in a timely manner.”
But it’s that marked drop-off in Ivanka’s emails that are of particular interest to AG James.
The AG’s letter to Judge Engoron cites a still-unacknowledged request to Ivanka Trump to explain why her “volume of emails dropped from 1,200 per month in 2014 to 37 in 2016.”
It’s not like Daddy’s Big Girl Special Helper wasn’t busy doing all kinds of shady things while he was running for office, so where’d those emails go?
Judge Engoron has set a deadline of May 12th for the Trump crime family to turn over the remaining documents.
I’m sure they’ll fully comply instead of making another executive go to Riker’s for them.
(Just kidding, no one in the Trump family has ever taken any responsibility for anything and they never will)
Still waiting for the investigations into Ivanka & Jared Kushner, they actually served in the White House and the corruption runs deep.
