Ivanka Trump Hires Defense Lawyer for Russia Investigation

Ivanka Trump hired her husband Jared Kushner’s criminal-defense lawyer for counseling during the ongoing Russia probe, the National Law Journal reported Tuesday. Abbe Lowell, a D.C.-based attorney at the Norton Rose Fulbright firm, will provide legal advice to the first daughter—who serves as a White House adviser—throughout the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Trump has not yet been investigated herself, but Kushner testified Monday in a Senate Intelligence Committee session as part of the probe.
