Ivanka Trump and her family are known for doing any and everything to garner attention and to make a profit. Nothing stops these people, not even pride or empathy, and better yet, owning up to their criminal acts is something they aren’t too keen on either.
Since entering the daily public eye just months ago, Ivanka has managed to get herself involved in some pretty shady scandals, and some stuff from her past business ventures also came to light, casting a negative light on the blonde White House princess.
Now, she is officially the only first daughter to ever be investigated for a crime while her father served the country as commander-in-chief. Ivanka has apparently been using her personal email address to conduct White House business, leaving her vulnerable to attacks from hackers seeking information about the goings on in our nation’s capitol.
Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, we have documents showing Trump’s communication with WWE’s Linda McMahon, her father’s Small Business Administration’s administrator.
Austin Evers is the executive director of American Oversight. He made this statement about the recent findings:
“Yet again we see that there’s one rule for the Trump family and another for everyone else. It’s simply breathtaking that both Ivanka and Jared Kushner would conduct government on a personal email account after running a campaign centered on that very issue.”
This is nothing new, as this past Sunday, POLITICO broke the story of Jared Kushner, Ivanka’s husband, also using his private email server to conduct White House business. According to POLITICO:
“Kushner uses his private account alongside his official White House email account, sometimes trading emails with senior White House officials, outside advisers and others about media coverage, event planning and other subjects, according to four people familiar with the correspondence.”
Kushner’s lawyer responded with this statement:
“Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business. Fewer than 100 emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account. These usually forwarded news articles or political commentary and most often occurred when someone initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal rather than his White House address.”
