Ivanka's ridiculous response to email scandal

"What Ivanka Trump did, all in the presidential records, everything is there", Trump said.

Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and a top White House adviser, sent hundreds of emails about government business from a personal email account previous year, The Washington Post reported Monday. The Presidential Records Act requires all official White House communications and records be preserved. He also said Ivanka Trump did not set up a private server for the account, which he said was "never transferred or housed at Trump Organization".

A Republican senator has requested information from the White House regarding Ivanka Trump's use of a personal email account for official government business.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly pilloried Hillary Clinton, his rival in the 2016 presidential election, for her use of a private email server for government business while she was secretary of state.

Some of President Trump's inner circle found it alarming, the Washington Post reported, saying it bore similarities to Hillary Clinton's personal email use as secretary of state - a scandal which became a fiery topic during the 2016 Presidential Election campaign.

More important, the Washington Post, which broke this story, noted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation eventually determined that 110 of Clinton's emails contained classified information at the time they were sent or received. "We should not be criminalizing the use of private emails whether by Hillary Clinton or by Ivanka Trump". Donald Trump used the issue to call for Clinton to be jailed, which led to rally chants of "Lock her up".

But Ivanka Trump's emails did not contain classified information and she did not use an extensive home server, he argued, insisting that that his daughter and senior adviser had done nothing wrong. "My main priority as Chairman will be to focus on the issues that impact Americans in their everyday lives". He said Tuesday that his goal is to "prevent this from happening again - not to turn this into a spectacle the way Republicans went after Hillary Clinton". Following the discovery, Lowell forwarded emails that he had determined were related to official business to Ivanka Trump's government account. "I think even Ivanka, if she was interviewed about it, she'd have to say that it was a mistake".

Attorney and Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who has frequently come to the president's defense, told Fox News that Ivanka Trump's use of personal email was "hypocrisy on parade". "When she entered the government, she was given a government email account for official use". In the letter, obtained by CNN, Gowdy is seeking responses from the White House by December 5 and a briefing to update the committee on the White House's internal review.

'While transitioning into government, after she was given an official account but until the White House provided her the same guidance they had given others who started before she did, Ms Trump sometimes used her personal account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family'.
