Now... if you remember LAST episode, Trump was divesting himself of his businesses and putting it in the hands of his kids.

In this week's episode, we learn that Ivanka is going to take over the First Lady's wing of the White House and that she and her husband may move in. So one of the triumvirates of Trump's business empire now has an "open for business" sign on the First Lady's Office and Melania is going to be... where, exactly?

Roles for Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner come into focus

Washington (CNN)Ivanka Trump is poised to play an active role in her father's administration, assuming some of the duties normally assigned to the first lady.

Trump transition aides are already planning for an "Office of the First Family," in the East Wing where the current office of the first lady is located, sources familiar with the plan told CNN.

Melania Trump is still expected to play a role in the White House. However, Ivanka is expected to have a prominent slot as well. A source said she is likely to play the part of Washington hostess as well as advise her father on issues including family leave to climate change.
"No decisions have been made regarding Ivanka's role," Hope Hicks, Trump's spokeswoman, told CNN.

NyDaily News says

Are you expecting Jared and Ivanka to be the two family members that are most likely to take part in the administration," MSNBC's Joe Scarborough asked Conway.

"I think that's a fair assessment," she responded.

...and yet the family businesses are supposed to be handed over to her and her brothers....

Fox 16 reports that Ivanka may take over "some" of the First Lady duties ...and still run her father's businesses?

I'm seeing some conflict of interest, here.

Just there?

Obama Admin Deletes Conflict Of Interest Disclosures For Top Bureaucrats (VIDEO)

Conflict of interest disclosure reports filed by top federal officials were removed from public view by the Obama administration in recent months, a move that government transparency and accountability advocates condemn as a major setback.

The Office of Government Ethics (OGE) reports are the primary tool that watchdog journalists, political activists and interested voters can use to guard against presidential appointees using their positions to enrich themselves or others.
