Donald Trump’s official adviser and oldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, used a personal email account to send hundreds of emails about government business last year.
Trump made it a point, and still does, to acknowledge the controversy surrounding #HillaryClinton’s improper use of a private email server, but now Ivanka could be criticized for the very same thing if found to be true. Several of the emails, which were sent to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants, violated federal record rules, according to Huffington Post. Five Cabinet agencies revealed the findings after reviewing documents for a public records lawsuit. Many of the emails included information on Trump’s official work schedule, travel plans, and public and private meetings.
“She was the worst offender in the White House,” said one former senior U.S. government official who spoke to the Post about Trump’s inappropriate use of her personal email account, which she shared with husband, Jared Kushner, under the domain “ijkfamily.com.” Ivanka’s actions could break the Presidential Records Act, which orders that all official White House communications and records be preserved in a permanent archive. In addition, the emails could wind up being given to the wrong person.
The story made headlines and now social media is saying, “Lock Her Up!”
