First daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump collected a cool $4 million in income from her father’s controversial hotel in Washington, D.C., last year, according to her latest financial disclosure filing. The hotel is at the heart of two major lawsuits claiming it serves as a funnel for money to the Trump family from foreign countries seeking White House favors, Huff Post reports.

President Donald Trump earned $40.8 million last year from the hotel, where representatives of 22 nations spent money, NBC reported earlier this week. The attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia are arguing in court that Trump’s continued ownership of the hotel violates the Constitution’s emoluments clause, which bans foreign government payments to the president. House and Senate Democrats are also suing.

Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner earned a minimum of $29 million to as much as $135 million in outside income while working as senior White House advisers, according to the latest filings. In 2017 the couple’s reported minimum income was $82 million. The federal disclosure forms include very broad income categories, which accounts for the wide reporting range.

The couple’s real estate holdings and other investments were worth as much as $786 million. They also reported at least $22 million in bank loans for their various businesses.
