Though she works now as an adviser to her father, Ivanka Trump has also made forays into the business world that her father is so known for.
At one time, Ivanka owned a jewelry line, which has gone out of business. But before the enterprise was rolled up and forgotten, it appears Ivanka managed to engage in some shady dealings, including money laundering, as Ben Schrekinger of GQ has reported:
“Thanks to an overlooked filing made in federal court this past summer, we can now add a jewelry business to the list of Trump family enterprises that allegedly served as vehicles to fraudulently hide the assets of ultra-rich foreigners with checkered backgrounds. In late June, the Commercial Bank of Dubai sought—and later received—permission to subpoena Ivanka Trump’s now-defunct fine jewelry line, claiming its diamonds were used in a massive scheme to hide roughly $100 million that was owed to the bank, according to filings at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.”
Wonder who taught Ivanka how to launder money and defraud people? Daddy? Jared? Or did they both tutor her on the fine art of financial crimes?
The story behind the story is just as interesting as the prospect of Ivanka being a highly-skilled con artist who skirts the law because she doesn’t think it applies to her:
