Ivanka Trump Defends Using Private Email Account For Government Work

The Idaho Statesman said the White House contacted them Monday about Ivanka, an adviser to her father, President Trump, with an office in the West Wing, about her plans to visit an elementary school with Apple CEO Tim Cook on Tuesday to promote STEM education.

President Donald Trump's daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump defended her use of a private email account saying it has "no equivalency" to former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's email scandal. She then hedged and said, "but my discussions with him are between me and him, and that makes sense for anyone who has a seat at the table".

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

'All of my emails are stored and preserved.

There's no intent to circumvent and there were mass deletions after a subpoena was issued.

'We're instructed that if we receive an email to are personal account that could relate to government work, you simply forward it to your government account so it can be archived'.

Clinton deleted thousands of emails that she and her lawyers decided were personal or unrelated to her work as secretary of state before she turned over thousands of other emails to federal investigators. "Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 e-mails, she had a server in the basement, that is the real story".

Top House Democrats quickly jumped on it as they said that the Congressional committee will investigate into the matter.

But 'we're well beyond that point, ' she added.

An FBI investigation eventually concluded that Mrs Clinton should not face charges, but said she and her aides had been "extremely careless" in their handling of classified information. "There just is no equivalency between the two things". She would very much not like to be seen as a person who tear-gasses children, even though her participation in an administration that tear-gasses children is complicity in the tear-gassing of children.

He told reporters last week all of her government-related emails sent on the account have been placed "in presidential records". "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", she said.

See what else Donald Trump's golden child had to say below. Running towards the border is heartbreaking, there's no other way to process it.

Clinton similarly denied having classified emails on her private server.

"He knows exactly where I stand on any issue", she said.
