Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner May Have Reported Trump to the FBI 

Donald Trump’s ex-personal attorney Michael Cohen suggested Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner may be FBI informants working against the former president. 

Ivanka distanced herself from her father’s third run for the White House last week. Ivanka said she would support her father’s presidential run “outside of the political arena,” and would no longer be involved in politics. 

It makes Ivanka one of several high-profile Republicans to shift away from the Trump camp, but Ivanka is the first family member to do so. 

Trump made his announcement that he would be making a third run for president after an underwhelming midterm for the GOP, which saw them fail to capture control of the Senate and manage a slim victory in the House of Representatives. 

Cohen said that Ivanka and Kushner may have been the informants who tipped off the FBI that Trump was keeping hundreds of classified documents at his Florida estate Mar-a-Lago. 

In an appearance on MSNBC, the former advisor to Trump provided multiple examples of why the couple may not be not returning to the campaign. 

Cohen said they already “got everything” they wanted from working in politics. He pointed to Trump’s pardoning of Kushner’s father and the more than $640 million the couple made during the time they worked inside the White House.

Another reason was the Mar-a-Lago raid by the FBI. 

“I believe Jared and Ivanka potentially were the moles in terms of the Mar-a-Lago documents and so on,” he said. “And it would be very interesting to have, let’s say, the son-in-law, the daughter who are FBI informants—DOJ informants—acting as senior members of a campaign or an administration if he should somehow manage to slide back in.”

Cohen is not the first individual to suggest Kushner and Ivanka could have been working with the FBI. Mary Trump, the former president’s niece, speculated in August they could have been the confidential source who tipped off the FBI.
