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.

The FBI has been looking at the foreign business dealings of both Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner to determine whether their financial dealings around the world left them vulnerable to manipulation by foreign agents, a USA official told CNN.

U.S. intelligence officials are investigating business deals liked to President Donald Trump's daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump, CNN reported early Friday morning, in a revelation the news network said could impact her application for full security clearance.

The development, a 616-foot building that opened in February of past year just after Trump took office, is not owned by the Trump Organization, but rather by Joo Kim Tiah, an heir to one of Malaysia's wealthiest families, according to CNN.

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.

The CNN report notes that probing these kinds of deals is standard practice for an FBI background check, but the complex web of foreign ties required to finance such a deal complicate the investigation.

Lewis reportedly electrocuted himself while in prison in 1997 awaiting the murder trial, denying the charge in a suicide note. According to the New Zealand Herald , witnesses at that time said they heard a shot but the police statements said otherwise.

Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for Ivanka Trump's ethics counsel, said, "Nothing in the new White House policy has changed Ms. Trump's ability to do the same work she has been doing since she joined the Administration".

The report comes several days after Kushner's security clearance was downgraded, preventing him from viewing numerous sensitive documents to which he once had unfettered access.

A spokesperson for Trump Organization said the company's involvement was limited to licensing and management, and played no role in the financing or sale of the units.

Specifically, investigators want to know details about negotiations and financing surrounding the project.

President Trump's daughter Ivanka has been fired from her position at the White House.

Both Ivanka and Joo Kim said they worked closely together on the project, and Trump Organization received more than $5 million in royalties in the licensing deal, according to President Trump's financial disclosure form in June. The Holborn Group did not respond to requests for comment. At least one had links to the Chinese government, according to the Vancouver Sun.
