Ivanka Trump Defends Using Private Email Account For Government Work

Ivanka Trump said in an interview released Wednesday that there's "no equivalency" between her use of a private email server for government work and that of Hillary Clinton.

'Ms. Trump did not create a private server in her house or office, no classified information was ever included, the account was never transferred at [the] Trump Organization, and no emails were ever deleted, ' Lowell's spokesman Peter Mirijanian told reporters last week.

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.

"All of my emails are stored and preserved".

The FBI found classified information in some of the emails.

Numerous emails were in violation of public records rules, the paper reported.

"My emails have not been deleted, nor was there anything of substance, nothing confidential, within them".

Ivanka Trump was asked by ABC News, "So the idea of 'Lock her up!' doesn't apply to you?" "So, there's no connection between the two things", she said.

Ivanka Trump said in the interview that her email use violated no rules.

Roberts also dove into the topic of Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, which could possibly affect Ivanka's brother, Donald Trump Jr.

The Republican chairmen of Senate and House oversight committees - as well as a top House Democrat who will be wielding a gavel when his party takes power in January - have called on the White House to provide more information about the email account and the nature of her messages.

"There is no restriction of using personal email". "In fact, we're instructed that if we receive an email to our personal account that could relate to government work, you simply just forward it to your government account so it can be archived".

"I don't believe that's what he said", she replied, adding that his "primary role as Commander-in-Chief is obviously to protect the nation's borders".

"It also makes me angry", she added.

"I think it should reach its conclusion".

But it was her odd non-answer when questioned about how she advises her father, President Donald Trump, that again revealed the blurring of lines between her roles as adviser and daughter. 'I think it's been a long time that this has been ongoing, but I want it to be done in a way in which nobody could question that it was hurried or rushed'. "And I think after this long period of time, we're well beyond that point, so I think it absolutely should reach its conclusion".
