Report: Ivanka Trump used personal email account to communicate with Cabinet officials, White House employees

Emails and their use have been a hot political topic for the last several years. This happened thanks in large part to Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email account, private server to communicate about government matters.

According to Washington Post, President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, during much of 2017 used a private email account and server which belonged to her and her husband Jared Kushner to discuss White House matters. Apparently, Ivanka used this email and server to send hundreds of emails.

After learning of Ivanka’s usage of a private email and server, the White House was pretty distressed, according to the Post’s story:

The discovery alarmed some advisers to President Trump, who feared that his daughter’s practices bore similarities to the personal email use of Hillary Clinton, an issue he made a focus of his 2016 campaign. Trump attacked his Democratic challenger as untrustworthy and dubbed her “Crooked Hillary” for using a personal email account as secretary of state.

Some aides were startled by the volume of Ivanka Trump’s personal emails — and taken aback by her response when questioned about the practice. Trump said she was not familiar with some details of the rules, according to people with knowledge of her reaction.

You’ll remember, then-candidate Donald Trump made Hillary Clinton’s usage of a personal email and private server front and center as he attacked Clinton over and over for this practice, giving her the name “Crooked Hillary.”
