Report: Counterintelligence Investigation Looking at Ivanka Property

It has become crystal clear why Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has never received a permanent security clearance, but what about Trump's daughter Ivanka?

CNN reported last night that a counterintelligence investigation of the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Vancouver which features an Ivanka-brand spa is ongoing.

The $360 million project, which features 147 guest rooms and 217 luxury residences, quickly became a magnet for foreign buyers.

In the case of Vancouver, it's not clear why investigators are examining this particular deal. The timing of the deal -- as one of the few Trump-branded properties to open since Trump took office -- could be of interest. The flow of foreign money, either from the developer or international condo buyers, could also be sparking scrutiny.

By it's nature, the fact that this is a "counterintelligence" investigation means officials are trying to determine if foreign intelligence agencies have used or are considering using the Trump property to compromise or manipulate Jared or Ivanka.

A spokesman for Ivanka responded to CNN's report by saying the network is "wrong that any hurdle, obstacle, concern, red flag or problem has been raised with respect to Ms. Trump or her clearance application," but that doesn't make any sense even at face value because she still does not have permanent clearance.

If there were no obstacles, she would received permanent clearance nearly a year ago.

Previous administrations never had these kinds of problems because their families didn't own international conglomerates. Also, previous presidents didn't appoint their goddamn children to White House jobs.

    We can only hope this entire family and their whole corrupt enterprise is relegated to prison and their stain on humanity is somehow erased, their name becoming the equivalent of shame and disgrace.
    Unlikely, but one can hope. That’s all we’ve got.

    According to the article, Ivanka Trump worked very closely with Joo Kim Tiah, who runs his family’s Canadian development company, Holborn Group. Of Holborn, CNN says:

    Holborn is backed financially by Tony Tiah Thee Kian, chairman of TA Enterprise, which controls several other businesses. The elder Tiah has a checkered business history, including securities laws violations and false statements to the Kuala Lumpur stock exchange, according to the Malaysia’s Securities Commission. Joo Kim is the face of Holborn.

    As with other Trump properties, the Vancouver tower easily attracted foreign buyers. The Vancouver Sun reported last year that one of the buyers in the project has links to the Chinese government.

    Given all that, I should hope to kiss a pig the FBI would be scrutinizing the deal, and the statement from Peter Minijanian (identified as “a spokesman for Ivanka Trump’s ethics counsel”) does nothing to change my mind.

    Does it seem to anyone else that the whole Trump family can’t help but do sketchy deals with sketchy people?

      Part of this is due to the fact that legit investors have refused to have much to do with the Trumps for several years now. The other part of it is that the Trumps HAVE to keep opening new places and pushing their brand because they can’t make a profit by actually running a business. So their philosophy is expand at all costs. Never mind that they supposedly have enough money to live off for several generations and literally do no need to work at all.
