Revoke Ivanka Trump's security clearance, House Democrats tell White House

The Trump SoHo, an incongruous condominium hotel leering over Lower Manhattan, has something of a troubled past.

The conduct at issue here is simple: Trump's children appear to have lied about how many condo units in a certain development project they'd sold, in an effort to attract more buyers. "I did not at the time believe beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime had been committed", he told ProPublica.

Two Democratic lawmakers are calling on the White House to revoke the security clearances of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, citing reports that they say demonstrate a "brazen disregard for ethics and their apparent intention to skirt good governance rules". By the time Vance made the call, victims had settled their civil suit - with an extraordinary letter indicating they had no interest in cooperating with a criminal case. In May of 2012, after the prosecution witnesses had notified the D.A.'s office that they would not testify against Trump as per their settlement, Kasowitz met with Vance to emphasize his arguments in favor of dropping the investigation. During a June 2008 press conference with the foreign press at Trump Tower, Ivanka announced that 60 percent of units had been sold.

Vance, who is again up for reelection, last week returned the $32,000 to Kasowitz, according to a statement from campaign spokesman Steve Sigmund.

There was "no doubt" that the Trump children "approved, knew of, agreed to, and intentionally inflated the numbers to make more sales", one person who saw the emails told reporters.

All that is according to a new report from Andrea Bernstein, Jesse Eisinger, Justin Elliott, and Ilya Marritz, who are writing jointly for the New Yorker, ProPublica, and WNYC.

Prosecutors had extensive evidence against the siblings, including emails discussing how to "coordinate false information" and the Trumps anxious about being indicted. In another, according to a person who read the emails, they anxious that a reporter might be onto them.

But Kasowitz made it clear saying that his donations to Vance were unrelated to the case. Trump Jr. told a broker in one message that no one would ever find out about those false statements because the deception was kept strictly within the Trump Organization, according to a person who saw the email.

Concluding they had been cheated, some buyers filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization, accusing the Trumps and other defendants of "a consistent and concerted pattern of outright lies".

According to emails obtained by the journalists, the Trump siblings created a knowingly false message to send to potential buyers in the hopes of selling rooms in their struggling real-estate venture. It dragged on through 2012, with Trump Organization attorneys reportedly arguing that the siblings' exaggerations did not amount to criminal misconduct. Vance said his campaign accepted the donation because Kasowitz no longer had any cases pending before the office. The 46-story Trump SoHo, which the American Institute of Architects called "a banal glass box", went into foreclosure in 2014 and was taken over by a creditor.
