Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law, are reportedly looking at houses in Washington as the president-elect's administration takes shape.
The possible move from New York signals that Kushner, a key Trump advisor, could still have input in his father-in-law's administration in some capacity, CNN reported Monday. While anti-nepotism laws may complicate an appointment to a paid White House position, Trump could still find some role for Kushner.
Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus signaled as much last month, telling NBC's "TODAY" that Kushner could be "very involved" in decisions.
Kushner, whose father is a billionaire real estate mogul, had little political experience before Trump's campaign but became an influential advisor during and after the campaign.
While Ivanka Trump does not plan to take a formal role in the administration, she wants to advocate for issues she cares about, a source close to the transition team told CNBC. The Trump Organization was working to put in place a structure that would avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest, the source added.
Concerns about mixing business and politics have followed the Trump family since the election. While the president-elect had said his three eldest children would control his businesses instead of him, Ivanka Trump also sat in on his recent meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
