Don Beyer in calling for the removal of both Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s security clearance, citing the couple’s “brazen disregard for ethics.”

    “Reports showed their flagrant hypocrisy having used private emails to hide their correspondence from investigators. They also repeatedly missed deadlines for reporting financial assets to the Office of Government Ethics,” the letter reads. “Beyond that, Ms. Trump was reportedly close to being indicted for real estate fraud in 2012 but avoided prosecution thanks to a dubious meeting between Donald Trump’s lawyer and the New York District Attorney. This behavior makes them unfit to hold security clearances.”

    Lieu on Thursday took to Twitter to share he and Beyer’s letter, but also noted that he needed to enlist the help of his followers in getting Ivanka Trump to see it.

    “@IvankaTrump, a senior White House adviser, has blocked me on Twitter. Can you help forward our letter to her?” Lieu wrote via Twitter on Thursday. “Thank you.”

    In true social media fashion, Twitter users took to the call to action like wildfire — making sure President Trump‘s eldest daughter received the message.

    “If you work hard and tweet the truth, I’m sure you’ll get an Ivanka block,” Emily Brandwin wrote.

    “At which of her secret email addresses?” another Twitter user jested.

    “NO ONE in the White House (ANY admin) should ever block a congressperson, or vice versa,” another Twitter user wrote. “Highlights this admin’s ineptitude & partisanship.”
