Ivanka Claims She Didn't Know Private Email Use Was Bad

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

Ivanka Trump used personal email account for official White House business, report warns

"Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski cut to the chase in dissecting White House adviser Ivanka Trump's reported use of personal email for government business.

The report by the Washington Post alleges that US President Donald Trump's daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump briefly used her personal email account for communication with several administration agencies and officials. The paper said she used the personal account for official business fewer than 100 times in 2017.

Hillary Clinton famously did work as secretary of state using a personal email address linked to an email server located in her home in Chappaqua, New York.

Scarborough also called out Republican partisans and pro-Trump media figures for insisting that Ivanka Trump's apparent wrongdoing was somehow different than allegations against Clinton. Hillary had claimed that the tens of thousands of emails she had deleted were also personal, and limited to planning her daughter Chelsea's wedding, family vacations, and yoga routines.

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the likely incoming chairman of the Oversight panel, said Tuesday that he will resume that bipartisan investigation, which was dropped by Republicans.

A spokesman for Ivanka Trump's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, didn't dispute the report.

In some messages, Ivanka Trump acknowledges using a personal account and provides correspondents with her White House address.

The group's executive director, Austin Evers, said in a statement: "The President's family is not above the law".

First daughter Ivanka Trump apparently did not know that using her private email as a White House official is problematic and can violate federal records rules-even though her father Donald Trump spent his whole presidential campaign slamming his opponent Hillary Clinton for her private email scandal.

"There should be some kind of investigative effort, whether it's through the Office of Government Ethics or through the Congress", Blumenthal said in an interview with CNN.

Peter Mirijanian, the spokesperson for Lowell and ethics counsel for Ivanka Trump, said in a statement, "Like most people, before entering into government service, Ms. Trump used a private email".

He said she belonged in jail for her actions. The former presidential candidate initially said none of the emails she sent or received through the server were classified.

Many of those emails were "in violation of federal records rules", according to the newspaper. But she continued to occasionally use her personal email in her official capacity, people familiar with an administration review of her email use told The Washington Post. "Surely this will sway voters who weren't bothered by Trump mocking a disability".

"To say that Ivanka Trump doesn't know or is ignorant of policy - the ideal example is Hillary Clinton".
