Ivanka Trump Claims She Didn’t Know the Rules About Personal Emails

During the 2016 election campaign Donald Trump branded Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival, "crooked" over her use of a personal email server while secretary of state and accused her of endangering national security.

"When she entered the government, she was given a government email account for official use".

A wave of social media users slammed the president's daughter, Ivanka Trump, for using a private email for government business and then claiming not to know that it was against federal rules.

In 2016, her father Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of putting the USA "in danger" over her use of a private email while secretary of state. He insisted that Trump's email use was different than that of Clinton.

According to the committee's incoming chairman, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD), a bipartisan probe launched previous year stalled after the White House failed to provide the requested information, the Post reported.

The officials said White House aides also were told they should assume that foreign cyberspies had already penetrated their personal email systems to some degree and used that access to vacuum up everything not just on their own computers and phones but those of their contacts.

Executive director of American Oversight Austin Evers said: "The President's family is not above the law, and there are serious questions that Congress should immediately investigate".

Williams mockingly suggested they all come together and start chanting "lock her up", calling the First Daughter's actions "an act of hypocrisy so blatant and obnoxious".

In comments to reporters, the president, who has spent years railing against Clinton's use of private email for public business while secretary of state, sought to downplay - and differentiate - his daughter's email use from his former opponent's.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski unloaded on their old friend Ivanka Trump, whose use of private emails for government work was revealed by the Washington Post.

The report said that any of the emails violated federal records rules.

"When concerns were raised in the press 14 months ago, Ms. Trump reviewed and verified her email use with White House Counsel and explained the issue to congressional leaders", he said.

Emails regarding official White House business are required to be preserved under the presidential records act. Nor, her lawyers insist, were any of the emails she sent classified, and none of them were deleted before they could be turned over to the proper authorities.
