President Donald Trump's two eldest children and Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump

Ivanka and Donald Jr. were under investigation in 2012 for misleading investors by inflating prices of their father's Soho condos, according to ProPublica.

Long before Hillary Clinton's private email server became one of the most talked about aspects of the 2016 presidential election, the Trump family was entrenched in its own email controversy, in part thanks to digital correspondence between Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.

The case continued until the future president had Kasowitz, his long-time personal attorney, get involved in the case in the spring of 2012. "'It was settled as a civil case, '" the report added.

The reporters have several unnamed sources who said Kasowitz "boasted" about being able to get the two Trump children off in what he called a "really dangerous" case.

"I did not, at the time, believe beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime had been committed", Vance told reporters for the news organizations. He then visited Vance and "simply repeated the arguments that the other defense lawyers had been making for months".

Asked about Vance's decision to return Kasowitz's second donation four years later, Steve Sigmund, a spokesman for Vance's campaign, referred us to Vance's previous millstone comment.

Vance said he was concerned about cooperation from the disgruntled buyers after the settlement, and they didn't seem to be victims because they had not lost money.

"I had to make a call and I made the call, and I think I made the right call", Vance said.

After denying permission, Yogi says Rahul Gandhi can visit Amethi
Ms Irani had unsuccessfully contested the 2014 Lok Sabha election from Amethi against Mr Gandhi. BJP sources said that a slew of developmental projects would be announced during Shah's visit.

Kasowitz, in an emailed statement, denied the money was meant for any "quid-pro-quo' agreements".

It's been hit after hit of reports on unethical behavior by Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner in the past week, and some House Democrats are now calling to revoke her security clearance.

A spokeswoman for Vance's office emphasized this reversal in a statement to Gothamist.

This was a two-year investigation that never produced sufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.

The future president unveiled the Trump SoHo project on the 2006 season finale of "The Apprentice". According to ProPublica, prosecutors were inching toward impaneling a grand jury in the case against Ivanka and Donald, Jr. -a move that often leads to indictments. For one thing, the high-priced condos hit the market in September, 2007, just as the global economy began to crater and a global recession set in.

But the overall sales deal hinged on the Trump Organization selling at least 15 percent of the units, because by law, the sales couldn't close with anything less. Some buyers who felt misled sued the Trump Organization and others involved in the project in NY federal court in 2010. Every contribution is vetted through a rigorous process, accepted when appropriate, and returned when flagged.

According to ProPublica, the Trump SoHo went into foreclosure in 2014, and only 33 percent of units have been sold, while a creditor has taken over ownership. Only a hundred and twenty-eight of the three hundred and ninety-one units in the building have sold, the article concluded.
