Ivanka sent over 100 official emails through her private acct, even after her father condemned Hillary for the same.

For most of 2017, Ivanka Trump used her personal email account to correspond with White House aides and Cabinet members, the Washington Post reported in 2018. The president’s daughter has explained away the misconduct by saying she simply did not know it was a potential violation of federal records law.

  • Nearly 100 emails were sent from Ivanka Trump that discussed official government business.
  • Ivanka’s representatives maintain that many of those emails were in response to people contacting Ivanka first.
  • Ivanka claims she did not know it was a rule, despite her father and his administration harping on former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for a similar issue.
  • Sources told the Post that Ivanka wasn’t looped in on White House emails reminding employees not to use their private accounts.
  • Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for Abbe Lowell and Ivanka Trump’s ethics lawyer, told the Post that “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, almost always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family,”
  • The parallels between Ivanka’s private email use and that of Hillary Clinton were pointed out by the media, but Ivanka’s team was quick to respond. They maintain that Ivanka “did not create a private server in her house or office, no classified information was ever included, the account was never transferred at Trump Organization, and no emails were ever deleted.”

Gee, I could have sworn I saw her at most if not all of her father's rallies. WTF did she think the crowd was whipped up into saying "LOCK HER UP" was about? Sorry, Plastic Princess, your denial doesn't pass the smell test. Just a lier like Daddy.

This is the classic double standard hypocritically employed by the Trump Administration.

This is where the Republicans jump in and start to "come up with justification" for Trump's daughter doing this. The usual Republican response. :-(
