"We need those documents to ensure that Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and other officials are complying with federal records laws and there is a complete record of the activities of this Administration".

U.S. President Donald Trump has defended his daughter Ivanka Trump amid revelations that she used a personal email account to conduct government business on hundreds of occasions a year ago.

Well, his daughter, and salaried employee as a senior advisor to the White House, Ivanka Trump has now been accused of using her personal email account for government business.

President Trump, a Republican, repeatedly blasted his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election campaign over her use of personal email and a private server while she was U.S. secretary of state, and promised to investigate her once in office.

Ivanka Trump's emails came to light when White House officials began reviewing them in response to a lawsuit from watchdog group American Oversight, according to the Post.

However, Trump's own former director of communications Anthony Scaramucci, said that Ivanka's use of a personal email was hypocritical. "We should not be criminalizing the use of private emails whether by Hillary Clinton or by Ivanka Trump".

It's notable that those Democrats ― all incoming freshman with the exception of Lamb ― didn't sign the long-touted letter. She has made clear that she has no intention of abandoning her bid and said she is "100 percent" confident she will win.

New revelations about the extent of Ivanka Trump's personal email use in the White House will be getting a hard look from House Democrats when they take power in January.

In what appeared to be an acknowledgment of the potential risk of a backlash against Democrats for aggressively probing the Trump administration, Cummings also emphasized that his focus upon becoming chairman of the committee will be to address the everyday issues impacting Americans.

Congressman Mark Meadows of North Carolina defended Ivanka Trump via Twitter, writing, "There are over 30,000 BleachBit reasons why the Hillary Clinton email scandal isn't even close to the Ivanka email issue".

Mirijanian said that while transitioning into the government and before she received ethics guidance about preserving government records, Ivanka Trump "sometimes used her private account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family". Clinton said she never knowingly emailed classified information; the Federal Bureau of Investigation found classified information in some of the emails that were sent or received through her private server. He said the infractions occurred before Trump was briefed on the rules.

"It's possible that Ivanka, like her father, assumes that rules are for other people and not the Trumps", he writes. He addressed the media on the White House lawn after the news broke. Ivanka reportedly claimed she had been unaware of some of the rules concerning email.

Clinton's email practices as secretary of state prompted an FBI investigation that overshadowed the 2016 election and still draws ire from Trump and calls from his supporters to "lock her up".
