A U.S. senator is urging the FBI to investigate whether billionaire investor Carl Icahn violated federal law by attempting to enrich himself by using his role as an adviser to President Trump.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., believes Icahn may have violated federal anti-corruption law, Business Insider reports

The billionaire investor resigned from his position earlier this month following a new story about his efforts to change a policy that jeopardized his investments in a company. 

“Icahn had been using his government position to try to dramatically change the Renewable Fuel Standard program in a way that would substantially benefit CVR Energy, an oil refinery Icahn simultaneously controls an 82% stake in and serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of,” Duckworth said in a statement.
