More than a year after Ivanka Trump blocked Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) on Twitter, Lieu is firing warning shots about the legal perils facing Ms. Trump once Democrats assume their majority in the U.S. House in January.
Ms. Trump blocked Lieu – an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump – in August 2017. Lieu has charged that Ms. Trump has no business being a presidential aide and has also called for Ms. Trump’s husband, White House advisor Jared Kushner, to have his security clearance revoked.
Hey look, a senior White House official is afraid of tweets from a Congressman. Ivanka blocked me. Also, why is she in the White House? pic.twitter.com/hTaagBF7MM

On Thursday, Lieu renewed his spat with Ms. Trump following reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is digging into Ms. Trump’s involvement in secret plans to build a Trump property in Moscow during the 2016 presidential race.
“Let me ask White House Senior Advisor
@IvankaTrump about Trump Tower Moscow,” wrote Lieu. “Oh wait, she blocked me, a Member of Congress, because my questions bother her. Let me correct that. She blocked me, a Member of Congress who will be in the majority, because my questions bother her.”
Let me ask White House Senior Advisor @IvankaTrump about Trump Tower Moscow.
Oh wait, she blocked me, a Member of Congress, because my questions bother her.
Let me correct that. She blocked me, a Member of Congress who will be in the majority, because my questions bother her. https://t.co/9xFiHzPhsX

On Thursday, Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about “Project Moscow,” a secret Trump Organization plan to build a 100-story skyscraper in the Russian capital.
Email records show Cohen personally updated Ms. Trump and her brother, Donald Jr., about the project.
Yahoo News reported on Thursday that Mueller is looking into how much the Trump siblings knew about the illicit deal while their father was running for president.
