Don’t let the breathy voice, the designer pink clothes, or the posed photos in a lab coat fool you. Ivanka Trump has a lot of power over policy and decisions that affect the American people in the White House, and while she may have gotten where she is because of nepotism, she is responsible for her own ethical misdeeds.
BREAKING: CREW just obtained Jared Kushner's and Ivanka Trump's certified financial disclosures. Why did it take OGE so long to certify their disclosures? Why did Ivanka revise her disclosure 6 times in the past month??? https://t.co/9KchxoRSIw pic.twitter.com/02v8kl7DaV

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) announced on Thursday that after an unusually long amount of time under review by the United States Office of Government Ethics, Ivanka’s financial disclosure forms were finally certified, but only after six revisions in a single month. Her husband, senior advisor to the White House Jared Kushner, had to amend his four times.
CREW spokesman Jordan Libowitz said:
‘When taken together with their previous number of revisions on previous filings, it does show that they do have a pattern of trouble with their filings…the OGE was not willing to certify their reports for so long, which possibly has to do with why it was revised (so many) times. So the question is, Why? We don’t want to say what the reason is without knowing, but it’s troubling.’
It’s even more troubling combined with the fact that Kushner was forced to revise his financial disclosures at least 40 times in 2018. If the two have nothing to hide, why are they trying to hard to fool someone? If the revisions were due to unintended errors, how do they head up businesses at all?
The Trump family is surprisingly unethical and corrupt when compared to past presidential administrations, but Twitter wasn’t at all surprised by the news. Read some of their comments below:
