US Senator Calls for Probe Into Ivanka Trump Private Email Use

Ivanka Trump President Donald Trump's daughter and adviser may have violated federal ethics rules

Huntsman added that from her personally interactions with Ivanka Trump, "she's as scripted as they come", so if Democrats decide to investigate, "there's really gonna be nothing there".

A review into her emails revealed she had used her private address to contact government officials.

The Post, citing anonymous sources, said the discovery was made by White House officials reviewing emails in response to a public records lawsuit.

Addressing the report, Peter Mirijanian, the spokesperson for Trump's ethics lawyer Abbe Lowell, called it a misinformation, stressing that the situation has nothing in common with the Hillary Clinton email scandal that occurred in 2016.

"We plan to continue our investigation of the presidential records act and federal records act, and we want to know if Ivanka complied with the law", his office said a statement. Nor, her lawyers insist, were any of the emails she sent classified, and none of them were deleted before they could be turned over to the proper authorities.

"Until the White House provided her the same guidance they had to others who started before she did, Ms. Trump sometimes used her private account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family", the spokesman, Peter Mirijanian, said.

Mr Mirijanian denied that any of the messages contained classified information.

US President Donald Trump mercilessly criticized his 2016 Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for using a private email server during her time as secretary of state, labeling her "Crooked Hillary" and saying she belonged in jail.

The irony was not lost on people who took to Twitter in droves and mocked Ivanka and the president while also calling for her to be 'locked up'.

"When we went to court a year ago, we expected to find the president's daughter had an unusual role in the White House", he said, "but we didn't anticipate this kind of extensive use of a personal e-mail server or the panicked damage control effort that unfolded after we started asking questions". The issue prompted chants of "Lock her up!" at Trump rallies, which continued even after his election win.

"There should be some kind of investigative effort, whether it's through the Office of Government Ethics or through the Congress", Blumenthal said in an interview with CNN.

Mirijanian downplayed Ivanka Trump's private email usage compared to Clinton. Hillary Clinton famously did work as secretary of state using a personal email address linked to an email server located in her home in Chappaqua, New York. LOCK HER UP! How do you like it now, putz?,' wrote actress Bette Midler.

An FBI investigation concluded that Mrs Clinton should not face charges, but said she and her aides had been "extremely careless" in their handling of classified information. And he will pressure President Donald Trump's administration to turn over records about the use of private email for public business by Ivanka Trump, Kushner and other senior officials.

The Presidential Records Act mandates that all official White House communications be preserved.

If this is not done reliably, the use of private accounts can put official records beyond the reach of journalists, lawmakers and others who seek publicly available information. Most notably, Horowitz wrote that Strzok forwarded an email to his personal account regarding a proposed search warrant for former Congressman Anthony Weiner's laptop computer.
