‘NO CONNECTION’

Ivanka Insists Her Use of Private Email Is Totally Different to Hillary’s Use of Private Email

Ivanka Trump has defended her use of a private email account for official government business, insisting it’s totally different from the case of Hillary Clinton, who was relentlessly attacked by Donald Trump for her handling of work emails. The White House adviser and first daughter sent hundreds of emails to “White House aides, Cabinet officials, and her assistants” using a personal account in 2017. But she says “there’s no connection between” between that and the Clinton email scandal—one of the pillars of her father’s attacks on her in 2016. “All of my emails are stored and preserved. There were no deletions. There is no attempt to hide,” she told ABC News, adding: “There’s no equivalency to what my father’s spoken about.” The House Oversight Committee plans to investigate whether Ivanka “violated federal law” when she used her personal email account, but she insists she’s done nothing wrong. She went on: “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.”
