White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump, the president’s eldest daughter, sat for a deposition at the Washington, D.C., Attorney General’s Office Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation into the Trump 2017 Inaugural Committee, ABC News reported.
Ivanka Trump’s deposition was revealed in a filing by the D.C. attorney general on Wednesday. She is among a list of others who have sat for a deposition with the attorney general.
Another Trump associate, Tom Barrack, who was the chair of the inaugural committee, was deposed on November 17.
The Washington, D.C. attorney general’s office sued the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) in January, claiming the committee misused over $1 million in payments to the Trump hotel in D.C. for event space during the president’s 2017 inauguration.
Those funds “flowed directly to the Trump family,” the lawsuit claims.
Washington, D.C., joins the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office and the Southern District of New York as the three bodies that have been investigating the inaugural committee.
Ivanka Trump’s camp has yer to issue a statement or comment.
