Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and adviser, recently sat for a deposition as part of an investigation from D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine into spending connected to Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2016. As CNN legal analyst Laura Coates summarizes, Racine alleges the “abuse of nonprofit funds by grossly overpaying for space at the Trump Hotel in DC, among other things,” on the part of the Trump inauguration committee. The committee spent over $1 million to rent a ballroom for four days at Trump’s D.C. hotel and only ended up holding just two events there. On Thursday, Ivanka angrily complained on Twitter about Racine’s investigation, insisting that the probe is mere “vindictiveness.”

In her angry post about her recent deposition, Ivanka included a copy of an email that she said that she submitted to the D.C. A.G.’s office. In the email, she admonishes those involved in procuring space for the Trump inauguration festivities to charge a “fair market rate” to Trump’s inauguration committee. In short, this email, which contains a mere three sentences spread across a mere two lines, does not conclusively refute underlying allegations, although Ivanka may think otherwise. Notably — a report emerged recently in The New York Times, saying that Donald has considered the possibility of issuing preemptive pardons for his three oldest children, including Ivanka.

On Thursday, Ivanka said as follows:

‘This week I spent 5+ hours in a deposition with the Democrat D.C. AG’s office where they questioned the rates charged by the Trump Hotel at the inauguration. I shared with them an email from 4 years ago where I sent instructions to the hotel to charge a “fair market rate”… which the hotel then did. This ‘inquiry’ is another politically motivated demonstration of vindictiveness & waste of taxpayer dollars.’

The talk of a potential preemptive pardon for Ivanka suggests that there might be some conscientiousness of potential criminal exposure within Trump World. According to The New York Times, the president and Rudy Giuliani have also discussed a potential preemptive pardon for Giuliani, although it’s unclear what precise potential criminal proceedings against Rudy that the two of them may have had in mind. Presidential pardons only cover federal offenses, either way. Recently, Ivanka posted a similar Twitter rant after news dropped that New York authorities were apparently looking into tax deductions that the Trump Organization claimed for so-called consulting fees — some of which seemingly went to Ivanka herself. Ivanka called the New York investigations “harassment pure and simple.”
