Ivanka Trump Defends Keeping Her Political Opinions Private

Ivanka Trump is now publicly defending her use of a private email account for government business, and insists there is no correlation between her actions and those her father hammered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for during a brutal presidential campaign.

Unlike Clinton, Trump said all of her emails are on the White House server, there was no intent to circumvent, none of her emails were deleted, and none of them were classified.

"So the idea of 'Lock her up!' doesn't apply to you?" She said her EMAILS don't contain "anything of substance".

"All of my emails are stored and preserved".

"What we don't know", she added, "is how much commercial interest both the President's family and business and his son-in-law's family and business have with the Kingdom". "The fact is that we all have private emails and personal emails to coordinate with our family". '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'.

Her comments largely echoed those of President Trump, who told reporters last week that his daughter "wasn't doing anything to hide her emails".

The FBI found classified information in some of the emails.

The president's daughter and adviser said that Hillary's private email server, on the other hand, contained information marked classified by the State Department, and there were "mass deletions".

Republican and Democratic lawmakers have called for an investigation into her email use following reports last week that she used her personal account up to 100 times in 2017 to contact other Trump administration officials.

Asked whether she thinks Mueller's probe should be allowed to continue, Ivanka Trump echoed her father's sentiment that the time has come for the special counsel to close up shop.

"People see it as the same", Roberts insisted.

Congressional Democrats are crying foul, suggesting that they'll launch an investigation in 2019 after they take over control of the House of Representatives.

"Nobody wants to see anyone get hurt", she said, but, said her father is "not talking about innocent asylum seekers" when it comes to use of force. "And seeing children put at risk - running towards the border - is heartbreaking. She won't let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House", Penn wrote.
