Ivanka Trump retains defense lawyer for Russia investigation

Ivanka Trump will retain criminal defense lawyer Abbe Lowell to counsel her in the ongoing Russia probe, according to the National Law Journal.

Lowell, an attorney for the D.C.-based firm Norton Rose Fulbright, will work to provide both Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner with legal and ethical advice during the investigation.

While the president’s daughter has not been investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller in the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Kushner testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a closed-door session on Monday.
