Ivanka Trump under scrutiny for using personal email

Local News

WASHINGTON D.C. (ABC4 News)- First daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump was all smiles during Tuesday’s White House turkey pardoning, but she is under scrutiny for using a private email account while in the White House.

It’s an issue then-candidate Trump repeatedly blasted Hillary Clinton for doing while she was Secretary of State.

Now he says said “what Ivanka did is all in the presidential record. Everything is there, there is no deletion, there was no nothing.”

Austin Evers is with the liberal watchdog group American Oversight.

“She claims she didn’t know the rules of email as a government employee, that doesn’t pass the smell test.”

A senior congressional aide told ABC4’s Washington Correspondent Mark Meredith House Democrats will demand a thorough explanation and the House Committee on Government Oversight plans to look into Ivanka’s emails when Democrats take over in 2019.

That is when Maryland Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings will become Chair.

In a statement his office says:

“The committee started a bipartisan investigation last year that the Republicans subsequently dropped. The White House still owes us the information.”

Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson says he has questions too.

Johnson told CNN  “We take this very seriously,”
