As Trump’s Russian scandal investigation is still in the works, more scandals within the White House emerges, and apparently, his daughter Ivanka Trump plays a huge role in it.
The editor in chief at Breitbart, fooled into believing that an email prankster was ousted White House strategist Steve Bannon, told a fake Bannon that his publication could have Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner booted from their White House jobs by the end of the year.
As explained by the New York Times, Bannon resented Ivanka’s efforts to undo some of the major policies that he and the president “agreed were important to the economic nationalist agenda.” There also were reports that Ivanka had been urging her father to fire Bannon for months, while Jared and Bannon had been feuding for control over the president’s attention and policy direction. In Breitbart terms, Ivanka and her husband Jared are “globalists,” due to their reportedly more moderate social and economic positions.
The email exchange between Marlow and the prankster suggests that the goal of these critical stories is to undermine Ivanka’s credibility and get her fired.
“Reading online about how i’ll be bringing forth my wrath on Ivanka and Jared,” fake Bannon wrote to Marlow on Sunday, according to a transcript @SINON_REBORN posted online Tuesday.

CNN said a White House spokesperson declined to comment on the Breitbart emails about Ivanka Trump and Kushner, and Bannon did not respond to a request for comment, as suspicious as that sounds, we can’t say were not surprised.
