When the week began, Palmer Report predicted that Ivanka Trump would be the next to be implicated in Donald Trump’s Russia scandal (link). This wasn’t a mere hunch; it was fairly easy to follow the trail of evidence from brother her husband and her brother back to her. Now it turns out Ivanka is indeed being implicated in the scandal, by Congress no less. That didn’t take long.
Representative Don Beyer was the first member of Congress to fire the warning shot yesterday about some of the crimes Ivanka Trump may have committed along the way. He chose to focus on her security clearance forms. This is what Beyer laid out in a lengthy incriminating case he made on Twitter yesterday evening:
“Jared Kushner’s updates to his security clearance form related to this Russia meeting raise new questions about his wife, Ivanka Trump. That form, the SF-86, which I completed for a diplomatic post in the Obama Administration, contains directions which we must now consider. The SF-86 requires declaration of all foreign contacts by the clearance holder “or your spouse.” Ivanka Trump’s spouse is Jared Kushner. When Ivanka Trump received her top secret security clearance and filled out an SF-86, Kushner’s contacts mattered. Kushner updated his SF-86 3 times, most recently to include the June 2016 meeting w/ Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya. That meeting, as we now know, was offered by people connected to Putin as ‘part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.'” (link). But we believe there’s even more to it.
As Palmer Report pointed out yesterday, it’s nearly impossible to believe that Ivanka Trump wasn’t part of a plot between her husband and her brother to collude with the Kremlin to rig the election (link). And as we pointed out three weeks ago, Donald Jr. and Ivanka both have a lengthy past business relationship with convicted Russian mafia figure Felix Sater, who recently began cooperating with the Feds on a money laundering investigation that includes Trump SoHo (link). As these avenues are more fully investigated, it may come to light that Ivanka is every bit as deep into her father’s Russia scandal as her brother and husband are.
