Ivanka Trump copies Clinton on emails

Liberals cry hypocrisy after reports of Ivanka's private email use but it's not the same as Hillary

Officials have confirmed that the president's daughter used a personal email account to send hundreds of emails relating to government business past year, the Washington Post reports.

U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat on the Senate Judiciary panel, said there was "no way" Ivanka Trump did not know the rules after the 2016 campaign and that there were larger questions about the Trump family's mixing of private enterprise and government duties.

The blunder, which put Ivanka in violation of the White House records law, was first reported in September previous year.

President Donald Trump was critical of his 2016 Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for using a private email server.

In a statement, Trump's lawyer blasted "misinformation" by media critics attempting to draw a parallel between the president's daughter and Clinton. Her use of private email address for internal messages was discovered soon after.

A White House review has found that Ivanka used an email account from a private domain owned by her and her husband, Jared Kushner, for official administration business for most of 2017.

A spokesman for Ivanka Trump's lawyer didn't dispute the Post report. Trump himself brought forth "lock her up" chants November 10 at a rally and the presidential race has been over for two years now! But at the time it wasn't known if Ivanka was doing the same thing.

Notably, prior reporting has suggested that the National Security Agency - the primary federal agency in charge of signals intelligence - explicitly warned administration officials including Kushner that using personal emails for government purposes was unsafe, and could possibly cross-contaminate official channels of communication.

"Like most people, before entering into government service, Ms Trump used a private email", Mirijanian said.

"I'm disappointed-although not entirely surprised-that this administration disregarded clear laws that they more than anyone should have been aware of", Austin Evers, director of the watchdog group American Oversight, told the Washington Post. Was she sending classified information over a private system?

"Did Ivanka Trump turn over all of her emails for preservation as required by law?"

White House lawyers said she had not received updates reminding members of the administration that they can not use personal email accounts for official business.

She said it was for convenience. The White House, though, never handed over the information requested.

A spokesman for Lowell confirmed again that Ms. Trump had used personal e-mail for a time before she transitioned into government. Ivanka had her personal attorneys decide which emails needed to be turned over to the government, something Hillary also did.
