NY Prosecutors Investigated Ivanka, Trump Jr. For Potential Fraud

NY Prosecutors Were Preparing Felony Fraud Charges Against Don Jr. And Ivanka Trump

Donlad Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump were reportedly nearly indicted on a felony fraud charge five years ago for deceptively advertising their hotel and condo development, but the case was suddenly dropped after a lawyer with deep pockets stepped in.

Ivanka Trump listens to the press conference held by President Donald Trump and Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House.

Enter Marc Kasowitz, the pit-bill lawyer for Donald Sr. None of the investigators on the case reportedly were present.

Kasowitz later crowed that "the case was "really risky", one person said, and that it was "amazing I got them off". (The lawsuit was settled in 2011, The New York Times reported a year ago.) 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. Vance's campaign returned the donation before the meeting, but Kasowitz later made a larger donation and helped raise more from other donors - more than $50,000, according to the outlet. That second donation, Vance said, went through a rigorous vetting process that his office uses for all donations to identify conflicts of interest, including a final review by his chief deputy at the time, Alonso.

Two Democratic lawmakers are calling on the White House to revoke the security clearances of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, citing reports that they say demonstrate a "brazen disregard for ethics and their apparent intention to skirt good governance rules".

Kasowitz stated "I have never made a contribution to anyone's campaign, including Cy Vance's, as a "quid-pro-quo" for anything".

In a statement to the Huffington Post, a spokeswoman for Vance doubled-down on the position that there was insufficient evidence to bring charges against Ivanka and Donald Jr.in 2012.

The attack took place around 9:30pm when the BJP workers were decorating a part of the National Highway 66 for the march. The march is expected to travel through the state before culminating in Thiruvananthapuram on October 17.

"This was a two-year investigation that never produced sufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution", said Joan Vollero in a statement. "No outside attorney influenced any decision in this matter". Donald, Jr., is running much of the family empire.

But the project was troubled from the start. But according to a sworn affidavit by a Trump partner filed with the NY attorney general's office, Ivanka was outright lying: "by March of 2010, nearly two years after the press conference, only 15.8 percent of units had been sold", ProPublica writes-barely cracking the 15-percent the project needed to stay afloat.

Read the complete article on New Yorker magazine's website.

But the overall sales deal hinged on the Trump Organization selling at least 15 percent of the units, because by law, the sales couldn't close with anything less.

In an unfortunate bit of foreshadowing, the Trumps peddled "alternative facts" about the flailing Trump Soho in an attempt to woo new buyers after the property was unveiled with great fanfare on The Apprentice in 2006.

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". Only 128 of the 391 units - about one-third - have sold.
