Ivanka Trump, the first daughter and adviser to the president, used a personal email address to communicate with a government official after her father took office, according to documents that the nonprofit American Oversight obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and shared exclusively with Newsweek.
Ivanka Trump identified herself as 'Ivanka Kushner' in her emails.
The documents show that on February 28, Trump—identifying herself as Ivanka Kushner—emailed Linda McMahon, the administrator of the United States Small Business Administration, from a personal domain.
Trump, like her father, is apparently trying to have the best of both world.
Trump became an unpaid federal employee in March. But multiple government ethics experts say she likely could have had access to a White House email account in February, given that she is first daughter. Radford, her chief of staff, had a White House email address at the time.Ivanka Trump was sitting in on White House meetings around the time that she sent the email, including one between her father and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and a gathering of the business advisory council.
