Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Were Investigated for Felony Fraud

RTR2CMEA

According to the report, Kasowitz donated $25,000 to the re-election campaign of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.in 2012 and also asked Vance for the investigation to be dropped.

But another thing that happened is that Donald Trump Sr.'s lawyer Marc Kasowitz got involved in the case - and in giving money to Vance's reelection campaign. (The lawsuit was settled in 2011, The New York Times reported past year.) Sources told The New Yorker, ProPublica, and WYNC that there are emails showing the Trump siblings knew they were misleading prospective buyers and coordinated what false information to give them.

"I had to make a call and I made the call, and I think I made the right call", Vance said.

"Recent press investigations highlight severe credibility issues with Ivanka Trump, a White House official, close advisor, and daughter to the president", the letter from Lieu and Beyer began.

A source familiar with the investigation disclosed that email correspondence between Ivanka, Trump Jr. and other member of the Trump Organization indicated that they "intentionally inflated the numbers to make more sales". Ivanka Trump claimed 60 percent of units had sold, when in fact 15 percent had sold. "The evidence included e-mails from the Trumps making clear that they were aware they were using inflated figures about how well the condos were selling to lure buyers". In another email, they anxious that a reporter might be onto them. It dragged on through 2012, with Trump Organization attorneys reportedly arguing that the siblings' exaggerations did not amount to criminal misconduct.

Kasowitz told Pro Publica he made the donations to Vance because he was "impressed by him as a person of impeccable integrity, as a brilliant lawyer and as a public servant with creative ideas and tremendous ability".




The reporters have several unnamed sources who said Kasowitz "boasted" about being able to get the two Trump children off in what he called a "really dangerous" case. He stated that the case was "really risky".

And six months after Vance's ruling, Kasowitz made an even larger donation to Vance's campaign, helping to raise more than $50,000, with $32,000 from himself and the rest from others. Vance has told the reporting team that he will return Kasowitz's second contribution, as well. "Every contribution is vetted through a rigorous process, accepted when appropriate, and returned when flagged", said the spokesman.

Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump, Jr.at their father's inauguration in January. New details reveal that the case was resolved shortly after a Trump family attorney met with the Manhattan District Attorney whose campaign he had donated to.

In August 2010, some disgruntled buyers sued the Trump Organization in federal court, accusing the Trumps of "a consistent and concerted pattern of outright lies".

According to ProPublica, the Trump SoHo went into foreclosure in 2014, and only 33 percent of units have been sold, while a creditor has taken over ownership. Only 128 of the 391 units - about one-third - have sold.
