Ivanka Trump, President Trump's eldest daughter and a White House adviser, said Friday she knew very little about the controversial Trump Tower Moscow project and downplayed the importance of the potential deal. "So no, I have zero concerns".
ABC's Abby Huntsman asked, "Some of the president's former aides have now been charged and people are saying, look, the walls are closing in".
Given that the investigation could almost be over, ABC interviewer Abby Huntsman asked Ivanka Trump in an interview, "Are you concerned about anyone in your life that you love being involved?"
"No", Trump replied. "There's nothing there".
Trump also told Huntsman that she can not explain why there are people who work for President Donald Trump who leak damaging information from the White House, but said she does know who some of the leakers have been ― and added that some are not still there. "I have zero concern".
In one email, she suggests an architect for the Trump Tower Moscow project.
"Literally nearly nothing", Ivanka Trump said about her knowledge of the possible deal, which Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani says was under consideration up until Donald Trump's election.
Trump, a senior advisor for her father, also said she thinks the country can come together on comprehensive immigration reform, as both parties recognize the immigration system is "deeply flawed".
He also claims he updated Trump and his family on developments on the project, which never materialized. "So this was not exactly like an advanced project".
Ms Trump also dismissed fears about doing business in Russian Federation, claiming it was "not like it's a odd thing" to have property there. "We're not talking about Iran. I'm not sure that anyone would have thought of it".
Mr Trump's proposed project hit the headlines in November when his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen admitted he lied to to Congress about efforts to build Trump Tower.
Trump has repeatedly said he had no business dealings in Russian Federation, tweeting in July 2016, "For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russian Federation", and telling reporters in January 2017 that he had no deals there because he had "stayed away".
