Ivanka Trump has a "confidential relationship" with white-collar defense lawyer Abbe Lowell – the same attorney defending her husband, The National Law Journal reported Tuesday.

The publication initially posted a story claiming the eldest daughter of President Donald Trump was being represented by Lowell, The Hill reported.

But after the White House pushed back on the report, the National Law Journal updated its story with a comment from Lowell saying he's got a "confidential relationship" with Ivanka Trump.

The report comes a day after her husband, Jared Kushner, testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee; Ivanka Trump is not a target of scrutiny by Congress or special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation, the subscription-only legal publication reported, according to Axios.

Former Manhattan federal prosecutor Ira Sorkin said Ivanka Trump's move might be "standard operating procure."

"My own feeling is that every individual working in the administration is going to have to get their own lawyer," he told the publication, Axios reported. "It's just the right [thing] to do."

According to The Hill, the president's daughter and Kushner have been represented by the same lawyer in the past — Jamie Gorelick, formerly the deputy attorney general under President Bill Clinton.
