WASHINGTON, Nov 20 (Sputnik) Ivanka Trump, a close adviser to her father US President Donald Trump, sent numerous emails on official US government affairs from a private account during 2017, US media said.
Ms. Trump sent hundreds of emails last year to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants using a personal account, the Washington Post reported on Monday.
Many of those emails were sent in violation of US federal records rules, the newspaper said quoting people familiar with a White House examination of her correspondence.
White House ethics officials discovered Ivanka Trump’s repeated use of personal email when they were reviewing correspondence in order to respond to a public records lawsuit, the report said.
In the 2016 presidential election campaign, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump repeatedly attacked his opponent, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, for using her personal email account during her tenure as secretary of state.
