Ivanka Trump’s shady financial shenanigans are part of NY state’s legal probes

CPAC 2020

Fascist baby-whisperer Ivanka Trump has been awfully quiet these past two weeks, huh? CNN reported yesterday that Ivanka, a senior advisor to her father, “has pretty much removed herself from this,” “this” being the fascist ratf–king meltdown from her father. Sources claim that “Ivanka is well aware she has a business she might want to return to, or even a future political life.” Lolz. Almost on cue, the NY Times reports that New York state is moving ahead with all of their investigations into the Trump crime family’s financial f–kery, including all of these shady payments to Ivanka:

Two separate New York State fraud investigations into President Trump and his businesses, one criminal and one civil, have expanded to include tax write-offs on millions of dollars in consulting fees, some of which appear to have gone to Ivanka Trump, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The inquiries — a criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., and a civil one by the state attorney general, Letitia James — are being conducted independently. But both offices issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization in recent weeks for records related to the fees, the people said. The subpoenas were the latest steps in the two investigations of the Trump Organization, and underscore the legal challenges awaiting the president when he leaves office in January. There is no indication that his daughter is a focus of either inquiry, which the Trump Organization has derided as politically motivated.

Among the revelations was that Mr. Trump reduced his taxable income by deducting about $26 million in fees to unidentified consultants as a business expense on numerous projects between 2010 and 2018. Some of those fees appear to have been paid to Ms. Trump, The Times found. On a 2017 disclosure she filed when joining the White House as a presidential adviser, she reported receiving payments from a consulting company she co-owned, totaling $747,622, that exactly matched consulting fees claimed as tax deductions by the Trump Organization for hotel projects in Hawaii and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Alan Garten, general counsel for the Trump Organization, said in a statement that “this is just the latest fishing expedition in an ongoing attempt to harass the company. Everything was done in strict compliance with applicable law and under the advice of counsel and tax experts. All applicable taxes were paid and no party received any undue benefit.”

Basically, Ivanka worked for Trump Org and was being paid by that company, and she was also funneling millions of dollars to a consulting firm – which likely just existed on paper – she also owned. Yeah, financial crimes mostly bore me to tears, but the relevant part is that ‘Vanka isn’t going to be able to stick her tail between her legs and hide out in Palm Beach. She’s going be the centerpiece in so many criminal cases and civil lawsuits when all is said and done.

Oh, and Ivanka can tweet out bulls–t too, daddy! Imagine being Ivanka Trump and thinking you have any kind of moral, ethical, political or legal high ground.

    “ I mean, can’t I break the law in peace????? “
    This has clearly got her shook and I’m loving it!

    LOCK HER UP!!!!!

  2. Christin says:

    She might want to go back to her natural hair color. I think it would go better with orange.

    Comeuppance, take the wheel. They’ve all dodged legal repercussions for far too long.

  3. Jaded says:

    She’s also violated the Hatch Act repeatedly by using her personal Twitter account for official purposes. The Hatch Act specifically prohibits government employees from engaging in political activity as well as government business so using her @IvankaTrump account means she’s using government resources like her time, title, and position to boost campaign messages. I hope they throw the book at the whole grifting lot of them.

    • LightPurple says:

      She posed with a can of Goya beans in a West Wing Office, major Hatch Act violation.

    • shanaynay says:

      I agree. They all flipped out when Hillary Clinton used her personal email accounts. I have no doubt that Ivanka and the whole family is complicit in all of the illegal activities. I cannot wait for this to truly come to light, and these criminals are finally forced to pay the price for their wrong doings.

  4. Noodle says:

    I am comforted that many criminals, guilty of much worse crimes, were eventually brought down by financial shenanigans. Waiting for her People magazine cover to declare her innocence, a la Aunt Becky.

  5. Ann says:

    I often wonder where they might flee to come January. They are all huge flight risks but who would have them? Russia? Maybe Saudi Arabia? Israel? North Korea?? Of course there is also the option that they all get away with it enough that they can travel the red states without consequence. If that happens sorry Florida.

    • Aitana says:

      OMG! Your comment actually induced vivid pictures N my mind…. thank U. I wud ABSOLUTELY LOVE to see Fascist Princess & that whole family finding refuge N N. Korea! I mean, my imagination is running wild with this idea.
      For the Trumps & Kushners to be hiding out N N. Korea wud really be hell on earth for them. Even if Kim Jong-Un (hope I got his name right) appointed them to “luxury accommodations,” they wud suffer greatly bcz N. Korea is even barely a 3rd world country. This wud be a dream come true for me. Thanks so much 4 your suggestion…. absolutely brilliant!

      Doubt SA. Evil Barbie wants to rule, not be subservient.

  6. LightPurple says:

    I’m not seeing her puling back out of anything. She has been tweeting like mad for the past two weeks, taking credit for and giving credit to Daddy for all sorts of things like creating Covid vaccines, ending ocean pollution, stopping human trafficking, and helping women create businesses in second and third world countries – a program George Bush I started but Nagini changed its name and uses it as a front to spend our tax money on her personal business and lavish vacations. She just isn’t as politically in-your-face as her two brothers but she is carrying on as if nothing has changed and keeps referring to the last four years as “FIRST term.” She is as adamant as her father not to leave the White House. And Jared is over in Israel still pretending to bring world peace while ignoring the Palestinians.

    @Kaiser: Imagine being Ivanka Trump and thinking you have any kind of moral, ethical, political or legal high ground. – This is what entitlement does to a person.
    I CANNOT wait to see her investigated. They should televise that as well on Pay Per View, I would buy in and have my popcorn ready. They thought the US was their own personal Atlantic city boardwalk to do as they please.

  8. MM2 says:

    Trump opened an umbrella indoors?! Now we know when he opened his portal to Satan.

  9. lola says:

    I’m supposed to feel sorry for that bitch? I don’t.gif

    She and her beaver veeners belong in prison.

  10. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    She tweeted that with no irony whatsoever, didn’t she?
    “100% motivated by politics, publicity and rage”

  11. Chris says:

    Tax fraud is what took down Capone right? Seems to be the best way to take down crime organizations is to get them for their many financial crimes. There’s no way Trump and the rest of his criminal enterprise did a good job covering their tracks, they’re too stupid and arrogant.

  12. Sarah says:

    She will flee to Israel. Wait and see. Whether they extradite her is another matter 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Ash says:

      My money’s on the UAE. Did you see those drones the Trump administration is trying to sell them in the dying days of his time in office? That’s not for nothing.

      • LightPurple says:

        I think UAE too. She made several trips there over the past few years, including one in February during which she used our tax money to make a ridiculous video of her touring a mosque. One positive thing to come out of the Covid disaster is that it put an end to Nagini’s endless international travel at taxpayer expense. In January and February, she hit Switzerland, Morocco, UAE, and India. The Swiss trip cost us $4 million.

  13. Ariel says:

    I would really like her, her brothers and her husband to do prison time for their years long criminal activities.
    I know rich people generally get off with “fines” and – not being able to operate another “charity” in the State of New York.
    But imagine if a few of them faced ACTUAL consequences.
    Wonder if it would be a deterrent to people like them.

  14. Nic919 says:

    There needs to be a prayer circle around Letitia James because she is doing the work to take down these crooks. I don’t trust Cyrus Vance as much because he dropped criminal charges against them on another matter in exchange for a campaign donation.

    I also think Jared has been selling state secrets to various countries in the Middle East which is how he paid off the loans for his NYC buildings. He’s a traitor and they will need to take him down too.

    That said I won’t be shocked if Ivanka and Jared hide out in israel. At least as long as Netanyahu is PM.

  15. Mina_Esq says:

    How do you like them Hunter Biden attacks now, Ivanka? My gosh, I hope these Trump criminals end up in jail.

  16. Natters5 says:

    Remember Ivanka, even Al Capone couldn’t escape the Federal Government when it comes down to financial crimes. This skank thinks she is not only going to float back to society but that she has a future in politics. This family needs to go down to show Americans and those around the world that you need to pay for your crimes otherwise mutants like the Trumps will rise again and force their way into powerful positions that effect us and the world. Biden and the NY judges better go tough on them.

  17. Elenor says:

    her and hubby didnt take a salary while working in the WH. but how many millions did they make off daddy being president? seriously fuck this family.

    • Holly hobby says:

      That’s not true. She never said she won’t take a salary. We’re paying her and Dickless Ken

  18. emu says:

    consulting is SUCH a scam. come on. I bet most of the debt that the Trump campaign is incurred (and is now asking supporters to pay) is due to consultant fees.

  19. The Recluse says:

    The countdown continues until January 20th at noon.

  20. Holly hobby says:

    Elizabeth McLaughlin, who used to work for Evil Barbie, said that article must have struck a nerve because that one keeps the lid on her thoughts (that’s why she can hide the crazy). She tweeted that response means she’s panicking.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer person. I hope this ends her political aspirations.

    I read lying Lara Rump plans to primary someone on the NC Senate race. So laughable. I want this family broke and jail so that never happens again.

  21. JillyBean says:

    Somehow that whole family will get a pardon and get away with it all.

    • Nic919 says:

      They can’t be pardoned for state crimes and Letitia James is not fucking around with their garbage. There will be a lot of court time for them in the next few years b

  22. jferber says:

    Oh, my God, in the first pic she looks like a blow-up doll and in the second she looks like ‘Roid Rage blow-up doll.

  23. jferber says:

    Question: If you’re convicted of a felony, can you run for president? It would be marvelous to knee-cap them all so not one trump, trumpish or trump-related person can run.
