Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter and a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, defended her use of a private email account while transitioning to an administration job, insisting to ABC News in an exclusive interview on Tuesday "there's no connection between" her situation and Hillary Clinton's email scandal.
Speaking with ABC News' Deborah Roberts in Wilder, Idaho, where she's promoting STEM initiatives alongside Apple CEO Tim Cook, Ivanka Trump maintained that all of the emails on her private account were properly archived and contained no classified information. She is adamant they bear no resemblance to Hillary Clinton's email scandal, which her father eagerly and frequently condemned as part of his campaign for president.
"All of my emails are stored and preserved. There were no deletions. There is no attempt to hide," she said, adding, "There's no equivalency to what my father's spoken
Thus far, the belief that Ivanka preserved all of her emails per Federal record keeping laws and transmitted no classified data appears to come from Ivanka herself, so there's zero reason to assume that she followed the law at all.
And since Republicans won't be able to address this issue without making it about Hillary Clinton, it's clear that only a Democratic-controlled House investigation is qualified to investigate Ivanka's use of private email accounts, along with everybody else in the Trump Administration who has done so. Every Republican/Conservative in this thread will make the issue about Clinton, thus proving my point that Republicans are unqualified to address the issue.
