Ivanka’s Turn to Lawyer Up

Ivanka’s Turn to Lawyer Up

According to the National Law Journal, Ivanka Trump is the latest member of Trump’s inner circle to secure legal counsel. She and her husband, Jared Kushner will both be advised by Abbe Lowell, a criminal defense attorney, with regard to ethics and legalities in the investigation.

The two previously retained Jamie Gorelick to advise them through government mandated disclosure requirements regarding potential conflicts of interest with the Trump family’s businesses and their roles in the administration.

While Ivanka has not been subpoenaed in the probe, she is wise to have counsel in place in case she would need it. This morning, the President tweeted that Jared did a very good job with his testimony yesterday and suggested the next up would be Barron.

Maybe they can get a family retainer rate?
