NEW YORK — Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner were caught in a new regulatory wrangle Friday after Ivanka Trump and Kushner filed a complaint with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that seeks to ban the purchase or sale of Ivanka’s jewelry and other personal property.
The Ivanka Trump Jewelry Case, filed by Ivanka Trump’s lawyer Paul Weiss and Donald Trump’s legal team, accuses Kushner and Ivanka of violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution’s Constitution against foreign interference and corruption, according to a news release.
The lawsuit alleges that the president has used the Emols to enrich himself and his family.
The complaint, which was filed on Friday and will be reviewed by the SEC’s Office of Inspector General, claims the president’s actions “have created a conflict of interest that will create an impermissible financial interest in the president, the emoluments clause and his son-in-law, President Donald J. Trump, to receive payments from foreign countries.”
Kushner, in the filing, also accused Ivanka of breaching the EmOLs by using her business as an “adviser to foreign countries and other foreign entities.”KUSHNER AND JUDY KUSHNER FILE LAWSUIT AGAINST DONALD TRUMP AND THE EMBOLS CLAUSE OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST TO INTEREST, filed on June 15, 2017, by Ivanka and Jared Kushner and Paul Weiss, LLC in the U
