Washington: White House adviser Ivanka Trump has denounced New York prosecutors investigating the Trump Organization after a report that they have expanded the inquiries into the president’s business dealings.
Ivanka Trump responded to a New York Times report Thursday that said Trump Organization officials have been subpoenaed in connection with widened fraud investigations led by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance and New York Attorney General Letitia James
The report said Vance and James, both Democrats, have opened the investigations to include tax write-offs involving President Donald Trump and, possibly, Ivanka Trump.
In a Twitter post Thursday, she called the efforts “harassment pure and simple.”
“This ‘inquiry’ by NYC democrats is 100% motivated by politics, publicity and rage,” she wrote. “They know very well that there’s nothing here and that there was no tax benefit whatsoever.
“These politicians are simply ruthless.”
