Twenty Senate Democrats have asked the FBI to review security clearance forms filled out by Ivanka Trump to see if they bear a “similar deception” to those filled out by her husband Jared Kushner.

Ivanka Trump would have been required to disclose not only her foreign contacts, but those from Jared Kushner and Donald Trump Jr. as well, says a letter to the FBI from representatives including New York’s Jerrold Nadler and Nydia Velazquez.
Led by Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.), the group asked that acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe conduct a review of her security clearance process.
The reps referenced a New York Times report last week that Kushner had updated his contact list with more than 100 names, including Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya’s, since first applying for his clearance. Withholding information on such a form is a felony, though it is rarely prosecuted.
Asked the congressmen:
“Did she disclose her brother’s and husband’s meeting with Veselnitskaya? Did she accurately disclose her own foreign contacts in her initial filing, which reports suggest may be numerous?”
