Ivanka Trump used her personal email to send hundreds of messages involving government business in a violation of federal rules.
The Washington Post reports: ‘The discovery alarmed some advisers to President Trump, who feared that his daughter’s practices bore similarities to the personal email use of Hillary Clinton, an issue he made a focus of his 2016 campaign. He attacked his Democratic challenger as untrustworthy and dubbed her “Crooked Hillary” for using a personal email account as secretary of state. Some aides were startled by the volume of Ivanka Trump’s personal emails — and taken aback by her response when questioned about the practice. She said she was not familiar with some details of the rules, according to people with knowledge of her reaction.’
Members of the Trump administration who have used personal email to conduct official business:
1) Ivanka Trump
2) Jared Kushner
3) Steve Bannon
4) Stephen Miller
5) Reince Priebus
6) Gary Cohn
The shameless hypocrisy of these people never ceases to amaze me.

“Lock her up, lock her up, lock her up”? No, of course not. The offence (though not the hypocrisy) is trivial. But so it was when the same offence was blown up out of all proportion to cost Hillary Clinton the election.https://t.co/ayq1hmfPXp

House Dems not going to give Ivanka a pass. House Oversight had already been looking into use of private email in the WH and will continue the investigation in the new Congress, aide told me. The goal: To determine whether Ivanka and others complied with the law

And just like that Ivanka is out of the headlines for using her private email account for government biz, and apparently will face no consequences- nor will the media outlets that gleefully brought down Hillary’s campaign for far less admit their fault here. Infuriating!

Waiting for outraged Congressional hearings and breathless New York Times headlines for months about Ivanka's private email account.
[the official soundtrack to hypocrisy and double standards]

US MSM: "It's very ironic that Ivanka has private email."
NO. It's ironic that the Trumps are Mobsters, Hillary is not, and the MSM made the email server "story" MORE IMPORTANT THAN BEING OWNED BY RUSSIAN ORGANIZED CRIME. #WisconsinButteryMales

Focusing on Ivanka's emails isn't just an issue of hypocrisy or parity. The Trump campaign made this a central issue, a campaign promise. What is their justification for being so careless themselves? What else did they claim to care deeply about and have now abandoned? https://t.co/WR218v0v6j
