Ivanka Trump appears on Fox News (screen grab)

Ivanka Trump lashed out at state investigators in New York state and Manhattan on Friday after reports of two different investigations into Trump family fraud.

“Two separate New York State fraud investigations into President Trump and his businesses, one criminal and one civil, have expanded to include tax write-offs on millions of dollars in consulting fees, some of which appear to have gone to Ivanka Trump, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The inquiries — a criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., and a civil one by the state attorney general, Letitia James — are being conducted independently,” The New York Times reported Thursday. “But both offices issued subpoenas to the Trump Organization in recent weeks for records related to the fees, the people said.”

“The inquiries — a criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., and a civil one by the state attorney general, Letitia James — are being conducted independently,” the newspaper noted.

The report generated a great deal of discussion online.

The first daughter, however, argued without evidence that the investigations were “harassment” and a “fishing expedition” motivated by “rage.”

She also denied that there was a tax benefit and accused authorities of investigating her despite knowing there was no fraud. She provided no evidence for any of her claims.

Attorney George Conway didn’t buy her deflections and denials.

“So please tell us what consulting you did that was legitimately worth $747,622 to the family company you already worked for. If this is ‘harassment, pure and simple,’ that should be pretty easy to explain,” Conway noted.

Female kicker makes college American football breakthrough

Vanderbilt University kicker Sarah Fuller made collegiate American football history Saturday as the first woman to play in a "Power Five" contest in the Commodores' 41-0 loss to Missouri.

Fuller, goalkeeper for the school's Southeastern Conference champion women's soccer squad, was given the chance to play on the gridiron after Covid-19 testing left Vanderbilt without a kicker.

"I was really excited to step out on the field and do my thing," Fuller said.

Because Vanderbilt's offensive unit sputtered, her contribution was limited to a single play -- the second-half kickoff. She punched the ball to the Missouri 35-yard line, a tricky low offering compared to the usual deeper kicks, where the Tigers fell upon it.

Published

A Republican congressman from Pennsylvania has cast doubt on his own legitimacy to serve in Congress with his failed lawsuit attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) attempted to have the courts block certification of the 2020 election results, but his effort was rejected by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Saturday.

"The PA Supreme Court dismisses the case brought by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election," Philadelphia Inquirer correspondent Jonathan Lai reported Saturday. "This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in."
