Republicans and the media crucified Hillary Clinton for doing the same thing almost EVERY government official has done in the past…..
Nobody is blinking an eye on this which follows the ‘revelation’ that FBI James Comey did so also….
Pundit Nate Silver gets this right….
A spokesman for Ivanka Trump’s lawyer doesn’t dispute a newspaper report that she sent hundreds of emails about government business from a personal email account last year.
If you’re one of those news organizations that treated Clinton’s private emails like they were a national emergency, the solution isn’t to treat Ivanka’s private emails like they’re also a national emergency—rather, it’s to acknowledge that you kinda fucked up on Clinton.
Republican’s just fight and shrug their shoulders….
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Tuesday said that it was “hypocritical” for Ivanka Trump to send hundreds of emails related to government business using a personal account.
“I think it’ll be a great campaign talking point for Democrats to bring up the fact that she did do it,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s “New Day.” “Certainly I think it’s hypocritical.”
“I think Ivanka, if interviewed about it, she’d have to say that it was a mistake. You can’t do that in that position.”
Scaramucci later added that Americans must figure out why people holding government positions are using private email servers to conduct their business….

Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are planning on looking into Ivanka Trump’s use of a personal email account to determine whether she violated federal law.
A Democratic aide told The Hill on Tuesday that the committee is planning “to continue our investigation of the presidential records act and federal records act, and we want to know if Ivanka complied with the law.”
The Washington Post reported Monday that the president’s daughter and White House aide had used her personal account last year to correspond with White House staffers, her assistants and Cabinet officials, in potential violation of federal records law.
The Democratic aide noted that the committee had started a bipartisan investigation last year on whether White House officials were in compliance with the Presidential Records Act under then Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who has since retired from Congress. That probe has since been dropped…..
