Ivanka Trump has lashed out at the attorney general of Washington, D.C., two days after she got grilled in a lawsuit investigating alleged improper payments to the Trump hotel she helped oversee.
The city AG's office has failed suit accusing the nonprofit presidential inaugural committee of making $1 million in improper payments to the luxury Trump hotel in Washington, D.C. – a Trump property that Ivanka has helped oversee. It is in a historic federally-owned building on a long term lease.
The president's daughter adopted a combative tone more typical of her father, ripping the probe as politically driven.
'This "inquiry" is another politically motivated demonstration of vindictiveness & waste of taxpayer dollars,' she wrote.
She confirmed her participation in the deposition on Twitter after it had been publicly reported and revealed in a court document. It all came down after President Trump continues to claim the election was 'rigged' and reportedly has considered granting pardons to family members including his daughter.
'This week I spent 5+ hours in a deposition with the Democrat D.C. AG's office where they questioned the rates charged by the Trump Hotel at inauguration,' she wrote.
'I shared with them an email from 4 years ago where I sent instructions to the hotel to charge "a fair market rate" (see below) which the hotel then did. This 'inquiry' is another political motivated demonstration of vindictiveness & waste of taxpayer dollars.'
