Ivanka Trump has a "confidential relationship" with white-collar defense lawyer Abbe Lowell as part of his representation of her husband Jared Kushner, according to The National Law Journal.

Ivanka Trump, however, has not yet been publicly identified as a target of scrutiny by Congress or Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation.
