Donald Trump is a farce in all the roles he’s attempted to play, and as King Solomon, he is no different. Michael Cohen was asked today about Ivanka’s role in the overvaluation of properties and the other Trump family actions which have led to the attorney general’s investigation in New York. Cohen makes two things crystal clear: 1) Ivanka is like Daddy, out for number one and nobody else; 2) Trump told Cohen to his face, “If anybody has to go to prison, make sure it’s Don. He’ll handle it better.” I suppose it’s better than deciding which kid to cut in half, but not much.
Starts at 6:19, although the entire eight minute long piece is worth the listen.
Now you have not heard anything from Ivanka, right? Right. She’s in silent running mode right now, she’s not making a sound. And that’s noteworthy because she is a “key witness to a litany of crimes.” Daily Beast:
And it’s all coming to a head this week.
On Tuesday, the New York attorney general filed court documents that claim Ivanka Trump played a much more insidious role in the company’s web of financial deceit than previously known. Investigators are asking a judge to enforce a subpoena that would make her testify under oath.
And on Thursday, the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection formally asked Ivanka to sit down and answer questions about her interactions with her then-president father during the hours the Capitol building was under attack. The request for a “voluntary interview” is widely perceived to be a first pass that, should it be rejected, could be followed by a congressional subpoena—and the implicit threat of a Justice Department criminal prosecution if it’s ignored.
On both fronts, Ivanka will be pressured to explain her father’s crooked tactics—tactics that Ivanka appears desperate to distance herself from now.
Distancing has been the name of the game for some time. Ivanka and Jared have tried to distance themselves from Trump and his catastrophic term in office. They had a desire to get into the good graces of high society and climb the social ladder once more. After all is said and done with the attorney general’s investigation, not to mention the Manhattan D.A.’s and the January 6 Committee’s, that will be but a bygone pipedream.
You did it to yourself, folks, you did it to yourself.
