Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner find themselves at the center of a storm stirred by partisan investigations. While House Republicans are deeply engaged in probing President Joe Biden’s family, particularly Hunter Biden’s financial dealings, Democrats are potentially beginning to counter with an investigation of their own.
An article from the New Republic has shed new light on a potential investigation.
Ivanka Trump and Kushner’s financial dealings, particularly during their tenure in the White House, have been a focal point of scrutiny by the Left for some time now. The article cites a report by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which analyzed their official financial disclosures.
According to CREW, Ivanka and Jared reported an income between $172 million and $640 million from outside sources while serving in the White House. A significant portion of this income was linked to the Trump Hotel, a stone’s throw from the White House.
However, the narrative around these figures often misses the broader context. As the article notes, “Ivanka took in more than $13 million from the hotel between 2017 and 2021,” a period marked by unprecedented challenges, including the Covid pandemic.
A source familiar with the outlet on Capitol Hill, however, reported that House Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) is persistently gathering info on the Trumps. The source indicated that Democratic investigators have compiled a substantial 400-page dossier focused on the personal financial activities of Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner.

“Democrats simply have other priorities, including a robust policy agenda, that they want to focus on,” a Democratic source explained. The source acknowledged that “additional investigations of Trump would damage or influence his political prospects.”
This compilation, ostensibly targeting their alleged financial undertakings while serving as presidential aides, appears to be an attempt to undermine the significant contributions they made during their tenure in the White House.
The article also delves into Jared Kushner’s involvement with Cadre, a real estate technology company. Yet, the questions are part of a larger, often politically charged narrative that seeks to undermine the credibility of the Trump family.
Supporters of Trump see these investigations as politically motivated attempts to tarnish her reputation, as well as her father’s presidential run. The focus should be on her contributions and the positive impact she has had, rather than on relentless political witch hunts.
The article concludes with: “Democrats on both sides of Capitol Hill are ‘keeping their powder dry’ so that if they do decide to seriously engage in scandalmongering regarding the finances of Trump and offspring, they could do so at a ‘more effective point’ during the forthcoming presidential campaign.”
While Democrats have halted any investigation, it’s important to consider recent moves made by the House Oversight Committee. Just this Monday, the Committee publicly posted subpoenaed bank records showing that Hunter Biden’s business entity, Owasco P.C., was making direct monthly payments to President Joe Biden.
The disclosure starkly contrasted Joe Biden’s previous statements about not being involved in his family’s business dealings. As 2024 is one month away, it seems anything and everything is on the table to maintain power in Washington DC.
