Three months after the meeting, he told them to drop the case. (The lawsuit was settled in 2011, The New York Times reported previous year.) Sources told The New Yorker, ProPublica, and WYNC that there are emails showing the Trump siblings knew they were misleading prospective buyers and coordinated what false information to give them.

"The idea for me that I would make a case decision for $5,000, or $50,000 or $100,000, is ludicrous, because it's so much more important for me to have the work of this office be perceived as fair and unbiased and not for sale", he said in an interview.

In 2010, when the Major Economic Crimes Bureau of the D.A.'s office opened an investigation of the siblings, the Trump Organisation had hired several top NY criminal-defence lawyers to represent Donald Jr., and Ivanka. There was "no doubt" that the Trump children "approved, knew of, agreed to, and intentionally inflated the numbers to make more sales", one person who saw the e-mails told us.

According to the story, which was produced by WNYC, Pro Publica and New Yorkere, the potential charges stemmed from allegations that Ivanka Trump and her brother had misled buyers about how well units at a Trump Organization development in Manhattan, the Trump SoHo, were selling. In one email, according to someone who viewed it, "the Trumps discussed how to coordinate false information they had given to prospective buyers". In another, according to a person who read the emails, they anxious that a reporter might be onto them. In fact, the buyers' attorney even wrote a letter to the district attorney claiming the Trumps hadn't violated any laws. "Every contribution is vetted through a rigorous process, accepted when appropriate, and returned when flagged", said the spokesman. Vance returned those donations before meeting with Kasowitz.

That group of 20 House Democrats pointed to contacts Kushner failed to report initially, such as his meetings with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, Russian banker Sergey Gorkov, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, the latter of which was also attended by then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump Jr.in June 2016.

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.

Branded as Ivanka and Donald Jr's baby, the property was a tough sell on the eve of the financial crash-but you'd never know it from the way the siblings inflated sales figures. The suit was subsequently settled, with the Trumps agreeing to return 90 percent of the buyers' deposits as long as the plaintiffs agreed to not coƶperate with prosecutors unless they were subpoenaed.

Concluding they had been cheated, some buyers filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization, accusing the Trumps and other defendants of "a consistent and concerted pattern of outright lies".

The Trump SoHo foreclosed in 2014, having sold only 33 percent of its units. At a press conference in 2008, Ivanka said that 60 percent of the building's units had been sold.
