House Democrats say they'll probe Ivanka's use of personal email

Ivanka gave up her business interests to focus on government

House Oversight Committee Democrats will investigate Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, in connection with use of private email accounts for official White House business, relaunching a 2017 probe into whether officials in President Trump's administration are complying with the Presidential Record Act.

Sources told the newspaper that she claimed she was "not familiar with the rules".

Ivanka Trump assumed an official role in the White House on March 30, 2017. We're scandalized! All I can do is repeat what her father said when Hillary did something not unlike what his First Daughter did!

Mirijanian said that while transitioning into the government, Ivanka Trump "sometimes used her private account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family". Clinton expressed regret for her decision to use a private server but said she violated no rules.

"FBI ignored tens of thousands of Crooked Hillary Emails, many of which are REALLY BAD", he tweeted. "Ms Trump sometimes used her private account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family", spokesman Peter Mirijanian said.

At the time of his campaign, Mr Trump frequently encouraged crowds at rallies to chant "lock her up" and threatened to imprison Mrs Clinton over the saga. Even in the Post's latest smear job aimed at Ivanka, no such comparable charges are levelled at her.

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley said Tuesday it's "baffling" that government officials continue to use private emails to conduct official business, especially after the Hillary Clinton scandal in 2015 and 2016.

"Some aides were startled by the volume of Ivanka Trump's personal emails - and taken aback by her response when questioned about the practice", according to The Washington Post.

He sent in around 5,900 troops to prevent the "invasion" but, once polls closed, talked far less about the issue. The San Ysidro port of entry at the U.S. -Mexico border is seen from Tijuana, Mexico, on November 16, 2018.

But under Duterte, the government has increasingly looked to build an economically beneficial relationship with Beijing. Both Xi and Duterte have often been in the crosshairs of human rights groups.

An administration official confirmed the Post report and was aware of Ms. Trump's emails, and characterized them as containing information related mostly to logistics and personal interests.

The discovery of the extent of Ivanka Trump's email use was prompted by public records requests from the liberal watchdog group American Oversight.

While Clinton shared "top secret" and "highly confidential" information through her private e-mail domain, potentially endangering national security, Ivanka's lawyer says this was not the case with the first daughter.

"I think the White House's use of non-governmental communication systems is ripe for the kind of oversight that can get to the bottom of things", Austin Evers, executive director of American Oversight, told The Post.

In some messages, Ivanka Trump acknowledges using a personal account and provides correspondents with her White House address. She admitted it was "irresponsible" for Ivanka to do this--leading to Williams saying "Thank you, somebody spoke the truth on The Five!"--but said they're not comparable and Clinton kept trying to "minimize" it.

"Trump sometimes used her account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family", he said in a statement.

"There's the obvious hypocrisy that her father ran on the misuse of personal email as a central tenet of his campaign".
