Ridiculously, Senator Warren has some questions about Ivanka Trump.
It’s ironic that she would question her ethics as the Squaw who claimed to be 1/89 Cherokee Indian used that lie to get her into law school and then later a $350K teaching position at Harvard University.
She grossed over $700,000 over a two-year period teaching at Harvard while she was double dipping as a United States Senator and a very scary one at that.
Warren is so far to the left she would even scare Hillary Clinton.
BOSTON — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to know how Ivanka Trump plans to follow federal ethics rules.
President Donald Trump’s daughter will have a security clearance, a West Wing office, and the ear of her father, but won’t be called an employee.
That would trigger transparency and ethical provisions, including a law prohibiting conflicts of interest.
The Massachusetts Democrat sent a letter to the Office of Government Ethics on Wednesday asking them to determine which ethics rules apply to Ivanka Trump.Warren also wants to know which disclosures Ivanka Trump will be required to make to demonstrate compliance and whether her compliance will be monitored and enforced.
If you believe that Warren hasn’t got the machinery in place for a presidential run against Donald Trump in 2020, you just haven’t been getting around much have you?
Ivanka Trump, the elder daughter of President Trump, is becoming an official government employee, joining her husband in serving as an unpaid adviser to her father in the White House.
Ms. Trump already has an office in the West Wing, and she said last week that she would serve as an informal adviser to her father.
But that plan prompted criticism from ethics experts, who said it would allow her to avoid some rules and disclosures.
“I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the president in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules, and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees,” Ms. Trump said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Throughout this process, I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role,” she said.

“We are pleased that Ivanka Trump has chosen to take this step in her unprecedented role as the first daughter and in support of the president,” a spokeswoman for the president said in an email.
“Ivanka’s service as an unpaid employee furthers our commitment to ethics, transparency, and compliance and affords her increased opportunities to lead initiatives driving real policy benefits for the American public that would not have been available to her previously.”
Ms. Trump’s lawyer, Jamie S. Gorelick, said that her decision stemmed from “her commitment to compliance with federal ethics standards and her openness to opposing points of view.”
“She will file the financial disclosure forms required of federal employees and be bound by the same ethics rules that she had planned to comply with voluntarily,” Ms. Gorelick said.
