Michael Wolff, the author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, told MSNBC on Friday that President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner are caught between their desire to support the president and their need to avoid legal consequences.

"Jared and Ivanka in their current situation," Wolff told MSNBC, "which is a deep legal quagmire, are putting everything on the president. 'It's not us, it's him.'"

Trump biographer Tim O'Brien said that this is in keeping with the "clannish" nature of the Trump and Kushner families, pointing to Jared Kushner's loyalty to his father Charles Kushner, when he was convicted of making illegal campaign contributions and hiring a prostitute to entrap his brother-in-law.

The idea that Ivanka Trump would distance herself from her father, O'Brien said, "does not ring true to me."

She may need to distance herself from her husband, O'Brien said, "Because Jared Kushner could be in a lot of trouble."
