IT SURE SOUNDS LIKE IVANKA TRUMP LIED UNDER OATH TO CRIMINAL INVESTIGATORS (Not me...headline)

f you paid any attention over the course of the last several years, you know that Donald Trump and his family famously have trouble telling the truth, which is another way of saying they‘re total liars. Trump himself, for instance, told 30,573 lies as president, and God knows how many since leaving the White House. Melania Trump claimed to have graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in architecture, which of course never actually happened. Eric Trump insisted the Trump Organization stopped doing international business when his dad became president, a certified pants-on-fire statement. In April, it emerged that Donald Trump Jr. seemingly lied to prosecutors investigating the 2016 inauguration—and according to a new report, his sister Ivanka Trump may have too.

Per Mother Jones reporter David Corn, during a December 2020 deposition, the ex-president’s eldest daughter was asked by the D.C. attorney general’s office if she had any “involvement in the process of planning the inauguration.” (D.C. attorney general Karl Racine sued the Trump Organization, the Trump International Hotel, and Trump’s 2016 inaugural committee in January 2020, alleging the groups funneled large amounts of inauguration cash into the first family’s pockets via the hotel.) Ivanka, who was an executive at the Trump Organization before becoming a senior presidential adviser, reportedly responded under oath, “I really didn’t have an involvement,” adding that if her “opinion was solicited,” she “would give feedback to my father or to anyone who asked my perspective or opinion.” That, she claimed, was that.

But according to documents obtained According to Mother Jones, Kushner responded the following day, writing, “Thanks, Stephanie—looks like it’s going to be a special event! So glad you are involved!” Ivanka Trump responded later that day, writing: “As mentioned, my interest in hosting [the dinner or reception for women entrepreneurs] depends on the quality and theme of the event.” She asked Winston Wolkoff to coordinate with with Abigail Klem and Rosemary Young, who served as the president and marketing head, respectively, of Ivanka’s company, saying, “It would be great to have a cross section of industry and also invite top female cabinet members and lawmakers.” In the email, Ivanka also said she would be happy to assist Winston Wolkoff if she ran into any problems coordinating with Reince Priebus, Trump’s soon-to-be White House chief of staff, and Katie Walsh, Priebus’s deputy: “please let me know if you don’t get the direction that you need from Reince and Katie and I will step in,” she wrote. by Mother Jones, that does not actually appear to be true! Instead, it seems that the former first daughter was intimately involved in the decision-making for various aspects of the inauguration:

1. Without consequence... As is the norm for "white collar" criminals.

Gee... I wonder why these people keep lying under oath. It can't possibly be because they always get away with it, can it?
