Ivanka Trump’s Used Personal Email Account For Government Official Business
Ivanka Trump daughter of and adviser to US President Trump over and over used a personal email account to conduct government business in 2017. 

The Washington Post reported Monday the White House conducted an investigation concerning Trump's email use and that she used her personal email address for quite a bit of 2017. 

As indicated by The Washington Post, Ivanka Trump sent "fewer than 100 emails in which Trump used her personal account to discuss official business with other administration officials." 

A review into her emails uncovered she had used her private address to contact government officials,included exchanges on her personal account with cabinet secretaries, and additionally advances of schedules to her assistant Ms Trump sent the emails before she was advised on the rules, her legal advisor says. 

In 2016, her dad Donald Trump blamed Hillary Clinton for putting the US "in threat" over her use of a private email while secretary of state.Trump's supporters regularly chanted - and still do, every so often - "Lock her up!" at the mention of Clinton, and President Donald Trump has much of the time blamed Clinton for receiving special treatment because she was not charged for avoiding the Presidential Records Act with her email practices. 

Austin Evers, the executive director of American Oversight, said in an statement, "The president's family is not above the law, and there are serious questions that Congress should immediately investigate. Did Ivanka Trump turn over all of her emails for preservation as required by law? Was she sending classified information over a private system?"

The White House had no comment on Ivanka Trump's email practices.Federal law requires government authorities to preserve written records of their activities—and that incorporates email. Government email systems are set up to agree to these laws, and federal IT rules require government authorities to utilize their official email accounts for all official business. The use of official email accounts may likewise decrease the danger of sensitive communications being intercepted by foreign intelligence agencies.

Peter Mirijanian, a representative for Trump's lawyer and  ethics counsel, Abbe Lowell, told the Post that while transitioning into government — however after she was given a White House email account — Trump  “sometimes used her personal account, almost always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family.” That took place, he said, “until the White House provided her the same guidance they had given others.” 

Mirijanian looked to draw a particular differentiation between Ivanka Trump's own email use and Clinton's, by noticing that she didn't have the server set up in her home or office. 

"To address misinformation being peddled about Ms. Trump's personal email, she did not create a private server in her house or office, there was never classified information transmitted,  the account was never transferred or housed at Trump Organization, no emails were ever deleted, and the emails have been retained in the official account in conformity with records preservation laws and rules,"

Evers included,"For more than two years, President Trump and senior leaders in Congress have made it very clear that they view the use of personal email servers for government business to be a serious offense that demands investigation and even prosecution, and we expect the same standard will be applied in this case."

It isn't illegal for White House officials to use personal email accounts for government business.However, under the Presidential Records Act and Federal Records Act, government officials should forward any official correspondence to a work account inside 20 days for protection. 

On the off chance that this isn't done dependably, the use of private accounts can put official records past the range of journalists, lawmakers and other people who look for freely accessible information.There are also rules against sharing classified or privileged information on personal email accounts.
