And here go again! Over the weekend it was discovered that Jared Kushner had used a private email account for government purposes, the very thing Hillary Clinton was excoriated over.
From the New York Post:
Ivanka Trump, who serves as an adviser for her father President Trump, communicated with government employees using a private email account, according to a report on Monday.
Ivanka Trump sent an email on Feb. 28 to Linda McMahon, the head of the Small Business Administration, asking her agency to “explore opportunities to collaborate” on issues related to “women’s entrepreneurship,” Newsweek reported, citing documents the nonprofit American Oversight group obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and shared with the news magazine.
BUT THERE’S A YUGE CATCH!!
Ivanka was not a gov’t employee at the time.
At the time, Ivanka Trump did not have an official post in the White House and only became an unpaid federal employee in March, but the Newsweek report said she was sitting in on meetings, including one with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
So, not as big a deal as they would like you to believe. I mean, you cannot expect her to use a government email when she wasn’t a government employee right? On the other hand, this is the kind of problem you get when your only credential to being in power is nepotism. Let’s see how this plays out before drawing conclusions…
