ABC News reports:
Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter and a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, defended her use of a private email account while transitioning to an administration job, insisting to ABC News in an exclusive interview on Tuesday “there’s no connection between” her situation and Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
“All of my emails are stored and preserved. There were no deletions. There is no attempt to hide,” she said, adding, “There’s no equivalency to what my father’s spoken about.”
“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.”
Ivanka, who worked with her father on a campaign that saw him threaten to put Hillary Clinton in jail for using a private email server, has been using a private email server to discuss official White House matters.

Ivanka Trump’s father was elected in part by whipping up crowds into saying “Lock her up!” as he talked about Clinton’s email server. But FOIAs show Ivanka Trump emailed with commerce secretary Ross, others, after she was a WH official. https://t.co/JMyVUs3Z7R
