ared Kushner’s undisclosed Russia contacts have now put his wife Ivanka Trump in the crosshairs of House Democrats, who are demanding a probe of her own government disclosures.

A group of 22 House Democrats have written the acting head of the FBI to ask whether the president’s daughter disclosed all of her husband’s and siblings’ foreign contacts as required under a sworn government disclosure form she filled out when she joined her father’s White House.

Kushner is under fire for failing to disclose 100 foreign contacts on his government disclosure form – including contacts with Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak, a Kremlin linked lawyer, the head of a Kremlin-linked bank, and a lobbyist with a Soviet Army past.

‘We are concerned that Ivanka Trump may have engaged in similar deception,’ the letter said,’ wrote the Democrats. The letter was signed by Virginia Rep. Don Beyer and signed by 21 colleagues.

‘For example, did she disclose her husband’s meetings with Kislyak and [state-owned Vnesheconombank bank chair Sergei] Gorkov? Did she disclose her brother’s and husband’s meeting with [Kremlin-linked lawyer] Veselnitskaya? Did she accurately disclose her own foreign contacts in her initial filing, which reports suggest may be numerous?’ the lawmakers wrote.

They addressed their letter to acting director Andrew McCabe, who is President Trump’s nominee to run the FBI after the president fired FBI Director James Comey in a move Comey believes was linked to the bureau’s Russia investigation.

The president’s daughter will difficulty pleading ignorance high-level diplomacy. She temporarily filled her father’s seat during the recent G20 summit, was pictured with multiple world leaders at Trump Tower during the transition, and was conspicuously seated next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her White House visit.
