U.S. President Donald Trump's daughter has described recent investigations into her father’s business dealings as politically-motivated “harassment” by ruthless politicians. In a tweet, Ivanka Trump linked New York state investigations to a New York Times report of recent subpoenas on the Trump Organization.
“This is harassment pure and simple,” she wrote on Twitter. “This ‘inquiry’ by NYC democrats is 100% motivated by politics, publicity and rage. They know very well that there’s nothing here and that there was no tax benefit whatsoever. These politicians are simply ruthless,” she added.
President Trump could "face the real prospect of jail time" over directing illegal payments during his 2016 presidential campaign, says a U.S. lawmaker. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House intelligence committee, Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House intelligence committee, was the first to raise the possibility of Trump going to jail after losing the presidency.
Trump, who threatened to leave the United States if he lost to his Democratic rival, has claimed that Joe Biden won the election because it was rigged. In the meantime, Trump, who faces multiple potential prosecutions, could flee to another country after Biden takes office.
Legal experts believe that when Trump is not the U.S. president anymore, it will be easier for prosecutors and plaintiffs in civil cases to pursue their cases against him.
