Ivanka, Don Jr., and Eric Trump are under criminal investigation as New York State investigates the entire Trump organization.
NBC News reported:
The New York attorney general said Tuesday that it is conducting a criminal investigation into the Trump Organization in addition to the ongoing civil investigation.
“We have advised the Trump Organization that our investigation into the organization is no longer purely civil in nature. We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity with the Manhattan Attorney’s Office. We currently have no additional comment, ”said Fabien Levy, a spokesman for the bureau, in a statement.
The state investigation is different from the Manhattan investigation, which focuses on Trump’s fraud commission related to his tax returns and loan applications. Trump himself is being investigated in Manhattan for banking and tax fraud.
The state investigation looks into the criminal activities of the entire Trump Organization, which includes Trump and his adult children who are all civil servants or work for the Trump Organization.
Ivanka Trump was already on suspicion of potential tax crimes related to her role in raising hotel rates at the Trump Hotel in DC for Trump’s inauguration.
The New York state investigation appears to be treating the Trumps like a criminal family engaged in criminal activity as a business.
Ivanka Trump and the rest of her family could be jailed.
