Just in case Donald Trump wasn’t bad enough for you, he comes with three adult children who are just like him. His son, Donald Trump, Jr., lied to the public about a secret meeting he had to get dirt on Hillary Clinton from Russian operatives. Eric Trump stole money from a children’s cancer charity that he ran. In fact, none of the Trumps are legally allowed to run any charity again.

Ivanka Trump, the president’s eldest daughter, has had her share of shady moments, as well. She was exposed for owning sweatshops in Indonesia where her clothing line is made.  She and her husband, Jared Kushner, have profited handsomely while working in the White House.

On Wednesday, she was deposed in an active investigation into the Trump inaugural committee misusing taxpayers funds for the celebration.

According to CNN:

‘In January, the DC attorney general’s office sued the Trump Organization and Presidential Inaugural Committee alleging they abused more than $1 million raised by the nonprofit by “grossly overpaying” for use of event space at the Trump hotel in Washington for the 2017 inauguration. Depositions of witnesses as part of the lawsuit have been underway over the past several weeks.’

The news comes one day after The New York Times revealed that President Trump has asked if he can preemptively pardon his children before leaving office. He may need one for his wife, as well, as both she and Rick Gates have also received subpoenas in the investigation.

‘The attorney general’s office has also subpoenaed records from Barrack, Ivanka Trump, first lady Melania Trump, and Rick Gates, the former inaugural committee deputy chairman, the filing said.’

Melania Trump’s former friend and official in the Trump inauguration committee has said publicly that she knew that the Trump inauguration committee might be breaking the law. Highly inflated prices at Trump’s hotels for those attending the inauguration, for instances, has made the president quite profitable, as well.

‘The committee’s own event planner — Stephanie Winston Wolkoff — advised against the transaction, telling the committee and the Trump family that the charges were at least twice the market rate, the lawsuit states. Wolkoff “noted unease with the offer during an in-person meeting with President-elect Trump and Ivanka Trump,” said DC Attorney General Karl Racine. She also sent a follow-up email to both Ivanka Trump and Gates to “express [her] concern,” according to the attorney general.’
