An investigation by the White House uncovered that throughout the majority of 2017, Ivanka Trump was relaying official White House business using a private email account.

In a statement, Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for Ivanka’s attorney and ethics counsel, Abbe Lowell, acknowledged that Ivanka “occasionally” used her email before she was briefed on the rules, but he said none of the messages contained classified information.

“While transitioning into government, after she was given an official account but until the White House provided her the same guidance they had given others who started before she did, Ms. Trump sometimes used her personal account, almost always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family,” he said in a statement.

Mirijanian stressed that Ivanka’s email use was different from Hillary Clinton’s, who had a private email server in the basement of her home. “Ms. Trump did not create a private server in her house or office, no classified information was ever included, the account was never transferred at Trump Organization, and no emails were ever deleted,” Mirijanian explained.

When Ivanka was asked about the emails in question, she claimed that she was not familiar with some of the details of the rules.

According to The Washington Post, people close to Ivanka said she never intended to use her private email for government work. She told White House lawyers she was unaware that she was breaking any rules.

House Democrats plan to investigate the situation further to find out if Ivanka violated federal records law.

“We plan to continue our investigation of the presidential records act and federal records act, and we want to know if Ivanka complied with the law,” a Democratic aide of the House Oversight Committee told NY Post.

Once Ivanka’s email scandal is further investigated, will she be in trouble with the law? Read more about this story on The Washington Post here.
