Federal Bureau of Investigation looking into Ivanka Trump's global deals

FBI counterintelligence officials are scrutinizing Ivanka Trump's business deal at the Trump Tower location in Vancouver Canada. Ivanka

The FBI has begun to investigate Ivanka Trump's business dealings, along with the financing of the year-old Trump International Hotel and Tower in Vancouver, British Columbia, CNN reported Thursday night.

The development in question, a 616-foot beacon dotting the Vancouver skyline and featuring a trademarked Ivanka Trump spa, opened in February 2017, just after Trump took office.

The report comes just days after Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, Ivanka's husband, had his White House security clearance downgraded, preventing him from viewing top secret materials he has previously been privy to.

Joo Kim is also said to be heading the family's Canada-based development company Holborn Group, which manages the residential portion of Trump International Hotel and Tower. She was not present at the opening, having gone on leave from the Trump Organization when her father was about to take office.

It is possible the timing of the deal is of interest to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, because it is one of only a few Trump-branded properties to open since the president took office.

Like much of the family's properties, the building is not actually owned by the Trump Organization, but a Malaysian developer who has licensed the Trump brand.

A spokesman for Ivanka Trump's ethics counsel rejected any notion that red flags had been raised during her security clearance process in a statement to CNN.

The new version is slated for a March 16 release on PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version coming later exclusively to Origin. Burnout Paradise will deliver the same action-packed experience that gripped gamers when the title first came out.

The Washington Post reported that since he took on the role as senior adviser to the president officials in countries such as China have talked about ways to use his web business to manipulate his position.

President Trump's June financial disclosure form revealed the Trump Organization made at least $5million in royalties from the Vancouver project, not including the thousands made in management fees.

CNN noted that it isn't clear why the FBI investigators are looking at this deal.

CNN said the flow of foreign money, either from the developer or worldwide condo buyers, could be sparking scrutiny.

Using assessment and land title records, Postmedia published an extensive look at a mix of well-heeled buyers in Vancouver, including US tech billionaires as well as successful, local entrepreneurs, who paid to snap up condo units at the Trump property.

Eric Danziger, CEO of Trump Hotel Collection, spoke at the grand opening of Trump International Hotel and Tower, as did Holborn Group's Joo Kim Tiah, Donald Trump Junior and Eric Trump. I've been so impressed by them from our dealings with them. "The hotel also invites scrutiny of his business partners such as the elder Mr. Tiah, who was convicted of providing a false report to the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange".
