Trump discussed the possibility of protecting his children from Biden

US President Donald Trump discussed with his advisers the possibility of protecting his children, son-in-law and personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani from his presidential rival Joe Biden. Writes about this The New York Times, citing informed sources.

According to the newspaper, Trump expressed concern that the Justice Department, with the coming to power of Biden, could try to punish him by targeting his three older children – Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, as well as Ivanka's husband Jared Kushner. The publication writes that the possible pardon of the lawyer Giuliani Trump discussed with him last week. However, the lawyer himself denied this information.

The newspaper emphasizes that Trump's reasons for concern about any potential criminal exposure of Eric Trump or Ivanka Trump are unclear. The publication adds that the Manhattan district attorney is investigating the Trump Organization's alleged tax violations. Giuliani's motives for pardoning are also called “unclear,” although federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating his dealings with Ukraine and whether he was linked to the ouster of former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

Earlier, Trump pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn. This decision was criticized by the chairman of the special intelligence committee of the US House of Representatives, Adam Schiff.
