Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill will be scrutinizing Ivanka Trump's personal email use in the White House in light of new revelations that she sent hundreds of messages about government business from that account past year.
The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump, who serves as her father's senior adviser, may have violated federal records rules by using a personal email account to contact "White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistant" concerning government matters, as well as her personal travel arrangements.
Like Hillary, Ivanka at one point used a personal email account for official communication - but that's where the resemblance begins and ends. His supporters still frequently chant, "Lock her up" whenever Clinton's name is mentioned.
Still, current and former White House officials have said it was characteristic of a repeated blurring of the lines between her government work and other aspects of her life, which used to include her namesake licensing and apparel businesses.
"I'm disappointed-although not entirely surprised-that this administration disregarded clear laws that they more than anyone should have been aware of", Austin Evers, director of the watchdog group American Oversight, told the Washington Post.
Ivanka said she was simply unfamiliar with rules requiring official business to be conducted via official email accounts-despite the fact that her father had made Hillary Clinton's violation of the same rules a central theme of his campaign.
Ivanka's legal team has claimed that the emails on her personal account mostly dealt with "logistics and scheduling concerning her family", and said that no emails had been deleted.
The White House had no comment on Ivanka Trump's email practices.
Clinton was investigated and cleared by the Federal Bureau of Investigation twice over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
Johnson, however, said that the Ivanka Trump situation does not appear to be as problematic, in his view, of the Clinton controversy.
Officials have confirmed that the president's daughter used a personal email account to send hundreds of emails relating to government business past year, the Washington Post reports.
The spokesman asserted that none of the first daughter's emails contained classified information.
Ivanka Trump is facing scrutiny following a Washington Post report accused her of using a personal email account to deal with government business.
The White House lawyers said they couldn't provide additional information on specific employees while an internal review was under way, according to the letter.
"Like most people, before entering into government service, Ms. Trump used a private email".
She did not use, or even activate, a state.gov email account, which would have been hosted on servers owned and managed by the U.S. government.
"She wasn't doing anything to hide her emails", Trump said. Other emails were too heavily redacted to determine if the email even came directly from Ivanka Trump, the group said.
