Ivanka Trump Used Personal Email Account for Government Business During Most of 2017

Ivanka Personal Emails

While Donald Trump spent much of his time on the 2016 campaign trail rallying against Hillary Clinton’s email, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner used personal emails throughout much of 2017. While Ivanka Trump defended this action as a learning curve during hers and her husband’s transition to government life, one has to wonder if she heard even 10 minutes of any of her father’s campaign speeches… but let’s get back to Facts.

In an interview with ABC News, Ivanka Trump said “There is no restriction of using personal email,” she said. “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.”

That’s not true. Ivanka doesn’t forward received messages that she hasn’t responded to, and that’s according to her lawyer. The House Oversight Committee suggests it is a violation of the Presidental Records Act.
