It seems that the swamp was being drained to come to Washington and not to leave it. Ivanka Trump is just as slimy as the rest of them.
September has not been a good month for Ivanka Trump. Her lawsuit with Edgardo Osorio, designer and owner of Aquazzura was highlighted last week. It seems that Ms. Trump, the “high ranking government official” (according to her lawyer, Darren Sanders), wants nothing to do with the lawsuit.
She has refused to go to the deposition, insisting she has nothing to do with the design or sales of her shoes. Her lawyer insists that it would be a great burden for the “high ranking government official.”
The judge in the case, US District Court Judge Katherine Forrest, however, does not agree, “She is alleged to have personal involvement in the events at issue in this lawsuit. She cannot avoid a deposition in this matter,” the judge ruled. Looks like Ivanka might have her day in court next March if she doesn’t settle with Osorio.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time Ms. Trump has been accused of stealing other designer’s designs. She was sued by Derek Lam and Mystique for copying their designs. Earlier this year, Trump was sued by Unicolors for stealing the design of their coat –which was sold by Trump to TJ Maxx as an “exclusive design.”
Now, in addition to her ripping off other designers for her clothing and shoe collection, it turns out Trump is accused of using her private email addresses for government business. The Hill reported that Trump used her private email account to communicate with former chief of staff Reince Priebus and former chief strategist Steve Bannon over media and event planning. (Lots of exes, we need a few more of them). Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, set up a private family domain before leaving for Washington.
Per Politico; “The use of personal email accounts in the Trump White House has been somewhat common, even though the president has been a harsh critic of Clinton’s private email habits, frequently leading “lock her up” chants as he traveled across the country on the campaign trail.” Perhaps Trump was projecting.
It seems that the swamp was being drained to come to Washington and not to leave it. Ivanka Trump is just as slimy as the rest of them. She uses slave labor to produce her clothing and shoe lines in Asia. (America first does not include Trump family members). She rips off other designers’ designs rather than create her own, and she uses her private email when it’s convenient. One might say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
