Deep diving a bit, the NYT follow up report notes that Trump has reduced his income by claiming all manner of “consulting fees” as expenses. But the investigation discovered a striking match. /1
Trump’s private records show that his company paid a very specific $747,622 in fees to an unnamed consultant for hotel projects in Hawaii and Vancouver, British Columbia. /2
Guess who owns that company? Ivanka Trump’s public disclosure forms — which she filed when joining the White House staff in 2017 — reveal she had received an IDENTICAL amount through a consulting company she co-owned. /3
I suspect the more the reporters dig, the dirtier and dirtier this is going to get. Did Ivanka really do any work on those projects? Or was this a way to shift money and hide family income? We’ll start to find out. /end
