to make way for landscaping. She was intimately involved with every step of the project. She was no figurehead. She knew far more about the deal and the very very very corrupt Mamadov family than her dad did. 2/

was the lead exec. But it was Don Jr. who approved/oversaw every key decision. Similarly, with the work Felix Sater did. He worked very closely with Ivanka and Don Jr on the deeply problematic Trump Soho project and on the potential Trump Moscow project. 4/

If anything, Donald Sr. has the claim that he knew little of the details of these deals. The kids--the grown-up executives--were the ones very actively running them. 5/end
