Ivanka Trump denies comparisons with Hillary Clinton over private email use

No attempt to hide,’ Ivanka Trump defends use of private email for White House work

Ivanka Trump, first daughter and advisor to President Trump, personally addressed a recent Washington Post report regarding her use of private email for government business when she first began working for the White House.

Despite this, both Democrats and Republicans alike have asked for more information regarding Trump's emails after it was reported she used her personal account to send hundreds of government emails a year ago.

The Washington Post uncovered Ivanka's private email use earlier this month, and of course, critics pounced since President Trump hammered Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election for having a private email server that the Federal Bureau of Investigation ended up investigating. "We all receive content to those emails and there's no prohibition from using private email as long as it's archived and as long as there's nothing in it that's classified". She said her missives were about "scheduling and logistics and managing the fact that I have a home life and a work life".

Senior Republicans and Democrats in Congress have vowed to investigate Trump's communications following a Washington Post report this month that she sent hundreds of emails previous year to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants using a personal account, many of them in violation of federal records rules. "There is no attempt to hide", the first daughter told ABC News in the wide-ranging interview. "There just is no equivalency between the two things".

"There is no restriction of using personal email", she added.

She is adamant they bear no resemblance to Hillary Clinton's email scandal, which her father eagerly and frequently condemned as part of his campaign for president.

"But the President told reporters at Mar-a-Lago last week that he's "given the OK" to use lethal force on the border, adding that he "(hopes) they don't have to". The State Department also investigated and found that her actions had violated department rules. As a candidate, Trump repeatedly attacked Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign for her email practices, prompting campaign audiences to chant, "Lock her up!"

"I think it should reach its conclusion".

In Clinton's case, she said, "There were mass deletions after a subpoena was issued".

Congressional investigators aside, Ivanka Trump said she has no fears of legal exposure for herself, her father, or anyone else in her family with regard to another investigation in Washington: special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

When asked specifically about the president's divisive tone, Ms. Trump offered a wry smile, and said: "He's my father and he's my boss". "And I think after this long period of time, we're well beyond that point, so I think it absolutely should reach its conclusion", she said.
