President Donald Trump’s daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump says she “barely” knew about the prospective Moscow deal that the Trump Organization pursued while Trump was also running for president, downplaying the significance of the project’s exploration.
“Literally almost nothing,” Ivanka Trump said of her knowledge of the prospective deal. “We were an active business.” Asked if she has any concerns about any of her loved ones being entangled in the ongoing Mueller probe investigating potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Ivanka Trump said she has no concerns.
“Are you concerned about anyone in your life that you love being involved?” ABC’s Abby Huntsman, co-host of “The View,” asked. “I’m not. I’m really not,” Trump said.

“We’re not talking about Iran,” Ivanka Trump said. “It was Russia. And we weren’t even advanced enough that anyone had even visited the prospective project site. So it really was just a non-factor….I’m not sure anyone would have thought of it.” https://t.co/08UlUtFcaE
