As reported Ivanka Trump is making her unpaid role an official one in the White House as "Special Assistant to the President".
Written in an article by Politico: Warren, Carper petition Ethics Office for information on Ivanka Trump’s White House role
Warren (D-Mass.) and Carper (D-Del.) sent a letter to director Walter Shaub on Wednesday asking whether the White House has requested or received guidance from the office about Ivanka Trump’s role in the White House and the rules about disclosures, divestments and recusals that could be required of her amid her growing White House role.
In the letter they go on to write:
Ms. Trump and the White House have suggested that she will not be an official government employee - a different approach than that taken by her husband, who is formally serving as a Senior Advisor to the President. Despite this assertion, Ms. Trump stated in December 2016 that she would "voluntarily follow all of the ethics rules placed on government employees." Her attorney earlier confirmed that she "plans to adhere to the same ethics and records retention rules that apply to government employees." It is therefore important to determine which ethics rules apply to Ms. Trump, which disclosures she will be required to make to demonstrate her compliance, and whether her compliance with these rules will be monitored and enforced.
Rhetoric: Are there different rules that apply to different roles or just the one set of rules?
Question: In this case which ethic rules would be applied to Ivanka Trump?
