Michael Cohen suggests Ivanka Trump is leaving politics because she was an FBI informant

Michael Cohen, who is a former lawyer for Donald Trump, said that former president’s daughter Ivanka is distancing herself from politics and her father’s 2024 campaign as she and her husband Jared Kushner may be working with the FBI.

“I believe Jared and Ivanka potentially were the moles in terms of the Mar-a-Lago documents and so on,” Cohen told MSNBC on Saturday. “And it would be very interesting to have, let’s say, the son-in-law, the daughter who are FBI informants — DOJ informants — acting as senior members of a campaign or an administration if he should somehow manage to slide back in.”

As evidence, Cohen cited instances in the past when one of Trump’s family members worked with authorities. Cohen previously said in August that there was likely an informant working with the FBI during their raid at Mar-a-Lago is “definitely a member of his inner circle.”

“I would not be surprised to find out it is Jared or one of his children,” Cohen told Insider.

Ivanka Trump announced that she would be staying out of politics after he father announced his 2024 presidential run. However, she said she still plans to support him “outside the political arena.”

“I love my father very much,” she said at the time. “This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics.”

Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner served as senior advisors for Trump when he was President.
