Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, is also an incoming senior adviser to the president-elect, and the couple is moving to Washington with their three children.</p> <p>All that has prompted widespread speculation that Ivanka may fulfill some of the first lady’s traditional duties in Melania’s place.</p> <p>She pushed back on that in her interview with ABC, though. She also discussed her transition from leader at the Trump Organization to Washington, describing it as “emotional.”</p> <p>“It’s emotional that I’m stepping away from my business, and my father will be president, and hopefully I can be there to support him and to support those causes I’ve cared about my whole professional career,” she said.</p> <p>ABC also spoke with Trump’s two adult sons, Don Jr. and Eric, for the segment. Both sons are taking over managerial control of their father’s business empire, an arrangement that has not satisfied ethics experts, who say it does not eliminate Trump’s many financial conflicts of interest.</p> <aside class=”story-related”><article class=”story-frag format-sm”><div class=”fig-graphic”><a href=”http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/donald-trump-mayors-233800″ target=”_top”><img data-lazy-img=”http://static2.politico.com/dims4/default/d41e706/2147483647/legacy_thumbnail/90×49%3E/quality/90/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic.politico.com%2Fba%2Feb%2F8be3dfcf457c9d5228064dae2d3f%2F170118-de-blasio-getty-1160.jpg” width=”90″ height=”49″ src=”data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==” alt=”170118_de_blasio_getty_1160.jpg” data-size=”promo_xsmall_rectangle”/></a></div> </article></aside><p>Eric, though, suggested that his father will be too busy to get involved with the business as president.</p> <p>“My father has the biggest responsibility of any person, arguably, on the planet, and that’s to run the United States of America,” Eric Trump said. “His focus is going to be running this country.”</p> <div class=”story-supplement”> <aside class=”content-categories”><h6>This story tagged under:</h6> </aside></div> <aside class=”content-group”><div class=”story-supplement”> <div class=”spotlight”> <div class=”thumb”><a href=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/politico-playbook-in-90-seconds/id1169056746″ target=”_blank”><img data-lazy-img=”http://static.politico.com/4f/8c/7c86fea84146bd87cb86396273e4/listen-to-politico-playbook-in-90-secondsjpg.jpg” width=”300″ height=”300″ src=”data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==” alt=”Listen to today’s flash briefing”/></a></div> </div> </div> </aside><div class=”story-supplement”> <aside class=”content-actions”><a class=”button format-l bleed-full collapse-toggle jump-anchor” id=”showCommentsButton” href=”http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/ivanka-trump-first-lady-inapporpriate-233850#superComments”>Show Comments</a></aside></div> <p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p> Thu, 19 Jan 2017 18:24:38 +0000 mconway@politico.com (Madeline Conway) Ivanka Trump: Speculation that I’ll be first lady ‘inappropriate’ “I think it’s an inappropriate observation,” Ivanka Trump says. article http://politi.co/2iXvsQc http://v.politico.com/images/1155968404/201701/2030/1155968404_5289380210001_5289358132001-vs.jpg?pubId=1155968404 de text/html http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/ivanka-trump-first-lady-inapporpriate-233850 http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/evan-mcmullin-gop-russia-hacking-232625 http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/evan-mcmullin-gop-russia-hacking-232625 <div class=” story-intro format-s”> <div class=”content layout-full”> <section class=”content-groupset pos-omega”><div class=”content-group”> <div class=”fig-graphic”> <div class=”video-player ratio-widescreen platform-brightcove”> </div> </div> </div> </section></div> </div> <p>Congressional Republicans knew about Russian attempts to meddle in the U.S. presidential election as those efforts were ongoing and chose to do nothing about them for fear of hurting the electoral chances of President-elect Donald Trump, former independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin said Wednesday.</p> <p>“Look, the truth is it’s been very obvious for leaders in Washington on the Republican side that the Russians have been undermining our democracy, or did undermine our democracy,” McMullin said at an event hosted by POLITICO Wednesday morning. “I know because I know for a fact that they know this. It was a topic of discussion during the election and they chose not to stand up.”</p> <p class=”story-continued”>Story Continued Below</p> <p>McMullin ran for president as an independent, conservative alternative to Trump, who won the Republican presidential nomination despite lacking traditional conservative bona fides. Before jumping into the race last August, he was the chief policy director for Republicans in the House of Representatives and before that, was an operations officer in the CIA.</p> <p>In a report released last October, the U.S. intelligence community stated that Russia had attempted to interfere with the American election process, launching cyberattacks against political targets. Trump has refused to concede the intelligence community’s assessment and has sought to push back against a CIA assessment that Russia launched its hacking efforts in an attempt to boost the president-elect’s candidacy.</p> <p>Russian cyberattacks, which hacked into the email systems of the Democratic National Committee as well as politically influential individuals, were just part of the Kremlin’s efforts, according to McMullin. He said Republicans in Congress were aware that the Russian government also sought to undermine Americans’ faith in the election process and bolster Trump through RT America, the Kremlin-owned cable news station. Congressional Republicans also knew about online accounts created by the Russian government that backed Trump and attacked those who did not.</p> <p>“They understood what was happening and they understood that that was probably only the tip of the iceberg,” McMullin said. “As a former intelligence officer, it’s hard to overstate how alarming this is and how alarming it should be.”</p> <aside class=”story-related”><article class=”story-frag format-sm”><div class=”fig-graphic”><a href=”http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/keith-ellison-rex-tillerson-232629″ target=”_top”><img data-lazy-img=”http://static2.politico.com/dims4/default/e9b7fae/2147483647/thumbnail/90×49%3E/quality/90/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fv.politico.com%2Fimages%2F1155968404%2F201612%2F3180%2F1155968404_5248038307001_5248025362001-vs.jpg%3FpubId%3D1155968404″ src=”data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==” alt=”Ellison calls for scrutiny into Tillerson’s Russia ties” data-size=”promo_xsmall_rectangle”/></a></div> </article></aside><p>“We now have the intelligence agencies who have taken, candidly, their sweet time in coming out to say ‘yes, indeed Russia did attempt to undermine our elections, to influence our election’ and then more recently, you know, the reported CIA assessment that they did it on behalf of Donald Trump or to support Donald Trump, which I think, again, is obvious and not something we should need the CIA to tell us, based on all the other information we have.”</p> <p>McMullin was especially troubled by Trump’s decision to nominate for secretary of state ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, who has close business ties to Russia and was awarded the Russian “Order of Friendship” by President Vladimir Putin. McMullin said Tillerson “is a predictable pick” because he is “somebody who will not stand up to what Donald Trump intends to do, which is a realignment, a strategic realignment of the United States with Russia.”</p> <p>Members of both political parties on Capitol Hill have called for an investigation into Russia’s efforts to meddle in last month’s election, and McMullin said he has more faith in the Senate than he does in the House when it comes to those investigations. He said specifically that he trusts Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and that more lawmakers should join them in investigating Russian interference. He said the issue should be bipartisan and should get more attention from the media, lines that earned him applause from the audience.</p> <p>“This is what Russia does in Europe and has done with effect. The Republicans are sticking their heads in the sand on this issue as they did during the campaign,” McMullin said. “I will tell you, this is not a new issue. They knew during the campaign that this was happening and they chose not to say anything because they knew it would harm them politically. That is the issue, the sacrifice of principle for power, the sacrifice of the country’s interests for the party’s interests.”</p> <div class=”story-supplement”> <aside class=”content-categories”><h6>This story tagged under:</h6> </aside></div> <aside class=”content-group”><div class=”story-supplement”> <div class=”spotlight”> <div class=”thumb”><a href=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/politico-playbook-in-90-seconds/id1169056746″ target=”_blank”><img data-lazy-img=”http://static.politico.com/4f/8c/7c86fea84146bd87cb86396273e4/listen-to-politico-playbook-in-90-secondsjpg.jpg” width=”300″ height=”300″ src=”data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==” alt=”Listen to today’s flash briefing”/></a></div> </div> </div> </aside><div class=”story-supplement”> <aside class=”content-actions”><a class=”button format-l bleed-full collapse-toggle jump-anchor” id=”showCommentsButton” href=”http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/evan-mcmullin-gop-russia-hacking-232625#superComments”>Show Comments</a></aside></div> <p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p> Wed, 14 Dec 2016 15:49:49 +0000 lnelson@politico.com (Louis Nelson) McMullin: GOP ignored Russian meddling in presidential election The Republicans are sticking their heads in the sand on this issue as they did during the campaign,” McMullin said. article http://politi.co/2hwFqFY http://v.politico.com/images/1155968404/201612/932/1155968404_5248252114001_5248232965001-vs.jpg?pubId=1155968404 es text/html http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/evan-mcmullin-gop-russia-hacking-232625 http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/sanctuary-cities-trump-immigration-232449 http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/sanctuary-cities-trump-immigration-232449 <div class=” story-intro format-s”> <div class=”fig-graphic”><img src=”http://static2.politico.com/dims4/default/a2d1f1c/2147483647/resize/1160x%3E/quality/90/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic.politico.com%2Fe4%2F24%2Fb23f78af4b959645b0b7205f04e6%2F161209-sanctuary-getty-1160.jpg” alt=”161209-sanctuary-getty-1160.jpg” title=”161209-sanctuary-getty-1160.jpg”/></div> <p>Lucia Quiej joins demonstrators on Nov. 16 to rally against President-elect Donald Trump, asking that the city of Homestead, Florida, be a sanctuary city. | Getty</p> <div class=”summary”> <header class=””> <p class=”subhead”>At least 37 cities have reaffirmed their immigration policies despite the president-elect’s threat to withhold federal funding.</p> </header><footer class=”meta”><p class=”byline”>By <span class=”vcard”>Ruairí Arrieta-Kenna</span></p> <p class=”timestamp”><time datetime=”2016-12-12T05:14-0500″>12/12/16 05:14 AM EST</time></p> </footer></div> </div> <p>At least three dozen so-called sanctuary cities across the country are standing firm against President-elect Donald Trump’s pledge to crack down on them, according to a POLITICO analysis.</p> <p>Trump has <a href=”https://assets.donaldjtrump.com/_landings/contract/O-TRU-102316-Contractv02.pdf” target=”_blank”>pledged</a> that one of the top priorities for his first 100 days in office is to “cancel all federal funding to sanctuary cities,” an unspecific term for jurisdictions that limit, in one way or another, their cooperation with federal immigration enforcement agents.</p> <p class=”story-continued”>Story Continued Below</p> <p>But with six weeks to go until the inauguration, POLITICO identified not one city that is reconsidering its “sanctuary” policies — such as not asking residents about their immigration status or detaining people solely because of that status — on account of the presidential election.</p> <p>Instead, officials in at least 37 cities listed below have doubled down since Trump’s election, reaffirming their current policies or practices in public statements, despite the threat of pushback from the incoming administration, and at least four cities have newly declared themselves sanctuary cities since Trump’s win. Ten other cities have said they will wait to see what Trump does but are not currently making any changes, according to local news reports and inquiries from POLITICO.</p> <p>There is no definitive list of U.S. sanctuary cities because of the term’s flexible definition. The 47 total sanctuary cities POLITICO identified were compiled from multiple sources, including a 2006 Congressional Research Service report, a 2014 Department of Homeland Security report and a 2016 Department of Justice memo. They range from small towns like Aberdeen, Washington, and Ashland, Oregon, to big cities like New York and San Francisco.</p> <p>Some city officials just don’t take Trump’s threat seriously, while others are openly flouting a president-elect they see as hostile to immigrants. Regardless, legal experts say Trump would have a lot of trouble fulfilling his promise to withhold federal funds.</p> <aside class=”story-related”><article class=”story-frag format-sm”><div class=”fig-graphic”><a href=”http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/senators-republican-democrats-dreamers-immigrants-232431″ target=”_top”><img data-lazy-img=”http://static2.politico.com/dims4/default/b469fc1/2147483647/legacy_thumbnail/90×49%3E/quality/90/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fs3-origin-images.politico.com%2F2013%2F07%2F16%2F071513_dick_durbin_hearing_ap_605.jpg” src=”data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==” alt=”Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin is shown. | AP Photo” data-size=”promo_xsmall_rectangle”/></a></div> </article></aside><p>“It depends on how serious they get, but whatever is going to happen, this is going to end up in court,” said Bill Ong Hing, a law professor at the University of San Francisco and the founder of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center.</p> <p>The Trump transition team did not respond to requests for comment.</p> <p>Most local leaders avoid the ambiguous term “sanctuary city,” including Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer, who said he thinks it is somewhat of a misnomer because it implies that such cities offer blanket protection from deportation when that is not the case. In reality, Dyer said Fresno’s policy limits police officers’ cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but they, as in almost every other sanctuary city, still must and do cooperate with federal authorities “when it is to assist them with criminal activity other than immigration status.”</p> <p>Dyer doubts that Trump will follow through with his threat to withhold funds — and he’s not alone. Leaders of several cities — including Baltimore; Long Beach, California; Mesa, Arizona; and Springfield, Oregon — are satisfied with putting off any conversation about their sanctuary practices until Trump can prove that his funding threat is real. Tyler Gamble, the communications director of the New Orleans Police Department, said the city’s current policies have been approved by the Department of Justice, and he sees no reason to speculate on the future.</p> <p>Legal experts seem to agree that the Trump administration would have a difficult time enacting the type of defunding it wishes to see. The most basic argument against the federal government’s ability to do that is nested in the Tenth Amendment. “It’s about federalism. It’s about separation of powers,” Hing said. Phil Torrey, a lecturer at Harvard Law School and the supervising attorney of the Harvard Immigration Project, explained that the Tenth Amendment gives broad powers to the states that include the ability to set policy agendas for local law enforcement, while it gives broad powers to the federal government to decide how to tax and spend dollars. The Supreme Court comes in when these powers collide, and the court has established precedent that the federal government cannot be overly coercive, Torrey said.</p> <p>One such example is <em>South Dakota v. Dole</em>, a 1987 case that clarified what rules Congress must follow when attaching conditions to federal funds. In that case, the court ruled that the federal government could withhold some highway funding from cities that did not enforce the federal drinking age because it wouldn’t be enough money to be considered coercive and because it did not violate the “germaneness rule” since the drinking age condition was determined to be germane to the purpose of the funds: safe interstate travel. That second rule, in particular, will be harder to satisfy with sanctuary cities, Hing argues, because “most federal funds to cities and local governments are not germane to immigration enforcement.”</p> <p>Another relevant Supreme Court ruling is <em>National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius</em>, in which the Supreme Court in 2012 ruled unconstitutional a provision of the Affordable Care Act that would have blocked federal Medicaid funding to states that didn’t accept Obamacare’s proposed Medicaid expansion. Hing suggests that the Supreme Court struck down that provision because it “went too far” and was deemed too coercive.</p> <aside class=”story-related”><article class=”story-frag format-sm”><div class=”fig-graphic”><a href=”http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/gop-congress-immigrants-dreamers-232391″ target=”_top”><img data-lazy-img=”http://static2.politico.com/dims4/default/3e92494/2147483647/legacy_thumbnail/90×49%3E/quality/90/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fstatic.politico.com%2F20%2F91%2F32a24b1a45d0bb860753c8ea88b6%2F161202-dreamers-1-gty-1160.jpg” width=”90″ height=”49″ src=”data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==” alt=”161202_dreamers_1_gty_1160.jpg” data-size=”promo_xsmall_rectangle”/></a></div> </article></aside><p>Torrey said these ruling makes one thing very clear: “What the federal government can’t do at this point is basically pull funding wholesale from states and localities in order to get their local law enforcement agents to basically enforce federal immigration law.” There are, he noted, some Department of Justice grants set aside for local law enforcement that is arguably related to immigration enforcement and “could be at risk.” But Hing said that allotment is equivalent to a drop in the bucket, estimating it to be about $600 million total nationally. For context, San Francisco alone receives more than $1 billion annually in federal funds.</p> <p>The fact that there’s no clear definition of sanctuary cities means it will be all the more difficult for Trump to implement any sort of defunding, Torrey said. “If the federal government is really looking to do this,” he said, “they’re going to have look at each individual sheriff’s office, and I just think that politically that’s not going to work, and logistically it doesn’t sound tenable at all.”</p> <p>There are other actions besides the withholding of federal funds that the incoming Trump administration could take to reduce the number of sanctuary cities. Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, a research group that favors more restrictive immigration laws, said the most basic action the Trump administration could take is to clarify the expectations and obligations of local law enforcement officials. Vaughan said she believes the Obama administration’s “ambiguity” on ICE detainer requests has left sheriffs confused about their legal liability if they comply with such requests. (In many cities, the ACLU has pursued litigation against county jails that hold undocumented immigrants without court orders.) Vaughan said Sen. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s pick for attorney general, could clarify to those sheriffs that detainer requests are not optional and assure them that they will not face prosecution for assisting ICE.</p> <p>As for what Vaughan describes as the “most egregious” sanctuary cities — those like Los Angeles or Chicago that openly defy even the Obama administration’s immigration enforcement efforts — she said they will likely lose the Justice Department law enforcement grants that Torrey mentioned and might even face prosecution by the department. It is very likely, she suggested, that the legality of their practices will ultimately be decided by a federal court.</p> <p>Nevertheless, many leaders are ready to remain steadfast. Mayors or police spokespeople from Aberdeen; Princeton, New Jersey; Northampton, Massachusetts; and Las Vegas all told Politico that they have no plans to reassess their current practices. Similarly, in Ashland, the mayor, the city attorney and the police chief all asserted at a city council meeting on Nov. 17 that they have no intention of changing their sanctuary status because of the election.
