Ivanka Trump is in some seriously hot water after a bombshell report was released Thursday night revealing that the president directed his attorney to lie to Congress. According to allegations, Ivanka was not only aware, but working on the Trump Tower Moscow project. Cohen reportedly told Robert Mueller that he informed both Ivanka and Donald Jr. about plans for the new building in Russia.

Ivanka released a statement via a spokesperson hours later, but she didn’t deny the allegations of her involvement. She did, however, downplay details of the work she did on the project. Ivanka said this Friday morning:

“Ms. Trump did not know about this proposal until after a non-binding letter of intent had been signed, never talked to anyone outside the organization about the proposal, never visited the projected project site and was only minimally involved.”

Is this the beginning of Ivanka separating her self from dear old treasonous dad? Or is she simply trying to stay out of prison? Hardly anyone is buying the excuses she gave for her involvement, including The View’s Sunny Hostin, who said this on a Friday airing of the show:

“What struck me as interesting is Ivanka Trump’s very carefully worded statement which, in my view, wasn’t necessarily a denial,” Hostin said. “She said through one of her spokespeople, ‘Ms. Trump did not know about this proposal until after a non-binding letter of intent had been signed, never talked to anyone outside the organization about the proposal, never visited the project site and was only minimally involved.’”

Hostin continues:

“That says to me, so you were kind of involved, but only minimally,” Hostin said. “You didn’t go to the site, but you knew about the site, and you found out about the proposal, but only after a letter of intent had been signed. So that kind of told me, well then, you just kind of confirmed that the BuzzFeed story is kind of accurate, right?”
