Dems want scrutiny of Ivanka Trump over Kushner’s Russian contacts

Congressional Democrats raising questions about Jared Kushner’s campaign contacts with Russia are beginning to ask: What did Ivanka Trump know, and when?

President Donald Trump’s daughter and senior aide has largely escaped scrutiny while Kushner, her husband, has faced intensifying questions about his failure to disclose meetings with Russian officials and associates during the 2016 campaign and transition to the White House.

Those questions exploded this week, amid revelations that Kushner attended a Trump Tower meeting — arranged by the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr. — with officials purporting to have damaging information from the Russian government on Hillary Clinton.

Ivanka Trump, like Kushner, applied for a security clearance this past spring — and as a result, she was required to disclose not only her own foreign contacts, but those of her spouse and siblings as well.
