Ivanka Trump brushed off the controversy over her use of a private email account in an interview Tuesday, arguing that her circumstances are significantly different from the email scandal that dogged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The Washington Post first reported that the first daughter and White House adviser had used a personal account for government business, sending hundreds of emails to White House aides, Cabinet officials and assistants. It reported that some aides were “startled” by the volume of personal emails, and by her response that she was not familiar with some details of the rules surrounding personal email use.
The use of the email account immediately drew comparisons to Clinton’s exclusive use of a homebrew private email server for government business when she served as secretary of state — an issue then-candidate Trump used to his advantage during the 2016 campaign.
