Exactly how many times can this asslicker use the excuse "It's not against the law because I say so?" before someone in Congress grows a pair of balls and says "Yes it is."

This is what it looks like when Democracy dies and those with the ability to stop the cancer stand by and do nothing.

Ivanka Trump taking formal role in administration amid ethics concerns


Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, announced today that she will take an official position in her father's administration, according to a statement.

This comes as her unofficial role has grown in recent weeks, and she was granted security clearance and a West Wing office, drawing scrutiny from some.

Ivanka Trump will be an assistant to the president but will not take a salary, she said in a statement first reported by The New York Times.

"I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the president in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House Office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees," she said in a statement today.

"Throughout this process, I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House Counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role."

She is not the only family member in her household to have a title -- her husband, Jared Kushner, is a senior adviser to the president.The White House released its own statement about the move, saying that it is "pleased."

"Ivanka’s service as an unpaid employee furthers our commitment to ethics, transparency, and compliance and affords her increased opportunities to lead initiatives driving real policy benefits for the American public that would not have been available to her previously," the White House statement reads

When her increased security clearance and West Wing office were announced, Ivanka Trump said "there is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president."

At the time, Kathleen Clark, an ethics expert and a professor at Washington University, described the arrangement as “outrageous.”

“This is extremely troubling because the White House seems to be pretending that it can treat somebody as a government employee — give them an office and responsibilities — and not be bound by government ethics standards,” she said.

“They assert that she will voluntarily comply with government ethics standards. That means they think she doesn’t have to comply,” Clark continued.

ABC News political commentator Cokie Roberts said that "she is solving the ethics issue" with the title as it forces her to comply by existing ethics rules.

The title formalizes her existing role, though she has been no stranger to the White House. She has been present for family events -- like the various inauguration celebrations -- as well as closed-door meetings and sit-downs with foreign leaders.

In February, she met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the White House, where they were part of a roundtable discussion on female entrepreneurs, and she met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

When German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the White House earlier this month, Ivanka Trump was seated right beside her.

Ivanka Trump’s involvement in business roundtable discussions could be attributed to her business background at her namesake fashion label and her father’s real estate empire, but she has also had a say in other causes that she is passionate about.

When Trump held a listening session about domestic and international human trafficking on Feb. 23, he started his remarks by thanking his daughter and then–senior counselor for economic initiatives Dina Powell “for working so hard to set this up.”
