Will it proverbially “hang” Donald Trump, or will the probe prove nothing at all damaging to Trump?

The subpoena of Ivanka Trump, the former president’s first daughter, and Kushner, news of which The New York Times attributes to two people briefed on the matter, comes as special counsel Jack Smith has summoned other members of Trump’s innermost circle in recent weeks, including former Vice President Mike Pence and former Donald Trump chief of staff one Mr. Mark Meadows.
The special counsel and representatives for both Ivanka Trump and Kushner did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill. The escalation of Smith’s investigation including approaching prominent individuals connected to the matter, means the probe may be nearing its conclusion. Smith is also investigating Trump’s handling of classified information.
Trump, who has had an adversarial relationship with Smith, has attempted to block witnesses from testifying in the investigation on the grounds of executive privilege. Pence has also said that he plans to fight Smith’s subpoena.
