Report: Ivanka Trump Used Personal Email For White House Business -

 The Washington Post” is reporting that Ivanka Trump used a personal email account to send hundreds of messages to fellow White House aides and cabinet officials.

Her use of the personal account was found during a review for a public records lawsuit. The message reportedly violated federal records rules in some cases. A spokesman for Ivanka's attorney says President Trump's daughter used the private email before being notified of the rules and that she never sent any classified material through that channel.

Some White House officials were reportedly worried that Ivanka's use of a personal account would be criticized since the President often slammed Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.

Ivanka reportedly mainly used it for scheduling events and travel for her family to those events. She turned the emails over to be stored permanently with other White House records.
