Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutinizing Ivanka Trump global business deal

President Trump's June financial disclosure form revealed the Trump Organization made at least $5million in royalties from the Vancouver project not including the thousands made in management fees

CTV Vancouver is reporting that an FBI investigation has been launched into the negotiations and financing for Trump International Hotel and Tower Vancouver.

The 63-storey Trump International Hotel and Tower, featuring a trademarked Ivanka Trump spa, was jointly developed by TA Global Bhd and Holborn Group, and opened in February 2017, just after Mr Trump took office as president. Among the reevaluations was that Robert Mueller's legal team is scrutinizing business deals involving the president and Kushner, who is the husband of Ivanka Trump. It is owned by the Holborn Group, a Vancouver-based subsidiary of Malaysia-based TA Global. She was not present at the opening, having gone on leave from the Trump Organization when her father was about to take office. It is possible that the timing of the deal, or the foreign cash involved, could be sparking interest from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Instead, like other Trump projects, it receives licensing and marketing fees from the developer, Joo Kim Tiah.

Ivanka Trump has not obtained full security clearance one year after she was named senior adviser to the president.

According to CNN, counterintelligence officials are working to determine whether Trump's daughter may have become vulnerable because of deals she struck which might have left her vulnerable to pressure from foreign entities.

"In the case of Vancouver, it's not clear why investigators are examining this particular deal", stated the American news network, which cited unnamed sources.

It reported that President Trump's June financial disclosure form said the Trump Organisation made more than US$5 million in royalties and US$21,500 in management fees from the Vancouver property.

But the flow of foreign money from the developer or worldwide condo buyers could also the cause of the scrutiny.

It was revealed in a report by the Washington Post that since Kushner took on the role of the president's senior advisor, officials in countries such as China planned ways in which they could manipulate him.

Using assessment and land title records, Postmedia published an extensive look at a mix of well-heeled buyers in Vancouver, including USA tech billionaires as well as successful, local entrepreneurs, who paid to snap up condo units at the Trump property.

The property in question is the Trump International Hotel and Tower, which comprises a luxury hotel with 147 guest suites, 217 high-end residential units and a four-level podium.

"Behind the Trump brand is a family business just like mine, so I can trust their longevity in the business. The hotel also invites scrutiny of his business partners such as the elder Mr. Tiah, who was convicted of providing a false report to the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange".
