Based on reports, it’s possible that President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, could be engulfed in Mueller’s investigation. A Los Angeles Times investigation shows that Mueller’s team is looking into an interaction between a Russian lawyer and Ivanka Trump that took place during her fathers 2016 presidential campaign.
Ivanka didn’t attend the 30 minute meeting in June with Russian lawyers, so she’s been largely left out of the investigation until now. But she did, according to what a person familiar with the exchange told the LA Times, “briefly [speak] with two of the participants, a Russian lawyer and a Russian-born Washington lobbyist.”
Not many of the details of the encounter were known previously, but, according to the paper, we do know that the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, and the lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, spoke with Ivanka as they left the building. The talk “consisted of pleasantries,” a person familiar with the episode told the paper.
