Ivanka: ‘No Equivalency’ Between Her Email Use and Hillary’s

Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump thinks it is unfair for people to say “lock her up” about her, although it is OK to say about Hillary Clinton.

According to the First Daughter and White House adviser, her use of a personal email to conduct official administration business has “no connection” to Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email as secretary of State.

Ivanka said this is because she followed the correct protocols for email use while Secretary Clinton did not.

In an interview with ABC News’ Deborah Roberts on Tuesday, Ivanka maintained that “there really is no equivalency” between her occasional use of a personal email and Clinton’s exclusive use of a personal email server during her tenure at the State Department.

The email scandal plagued Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign and led to Ivanka’s father and many of his campaign surrogates — and rally crowds — to demand that she be thrown in jail.

It was reported last week that Ivanka used a personal email account to communicate with White House officials both before and after she joined her father’s administration. It is unclear whether any of these communications contained classified information. They might have because, as the president’s daughter, Ivanka has a very high security clearance.

Ivanka’s attorney has claimed that she was not aware of policies regarding personal email use and said that she has since turned over all of her work-related messages for record-keeping.

The revelation has drawn criticism and bipartisan calls from Congress for investigations into the Trump administration’s use of personal email to conduct government business.

What Ivanka did at the very least was ill-advised and hypocritical given her father’s relentless and ongoing attacks against Clinton over her home email system.

In the ABC interview, Ivanka said that “there was nothing of substance, nothing confidential” in the emails she sent and received on her personal account. She also said that many of the emails dealt with scheduling concerns “to help coordinate” with her family.

On the occasion she received an email “that may have a political implication, I would then just forward it to my work account — that is the protocol, that’s what you’re supposed to do,” she said.

Asked how she could reconcile her email use with criticisms of Clinton, Trump argued that unlike Clinton, she never deleted any emails or shared any classified information over her personal account, unlike the former secretary of State was proved to have done, and she claimed that there was “no intent to circumvent” preservation and record-keeping protocols.

“People who want to see it as the same see it as the same,” Trump said, later adding, “there’s no equivalency to what my father’s spoken about.”

She added that “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.”

Clearly Ivanka Trump thinks she is special, and thinks the rules of government do not apply to her. Once she is called to testify before an investigation being carried on by House Democrats next year, she may change her tune, however.
