Ivanka Trump reportedly violated federal records rules by sending emails to government officials on her personal email in 2017, according to a new report from The Washington Post.
It said that Trump, a White House adviser, and Ivanka, sent hundreds of emails about White House business and her official schedule to administration aides, Cabinet officials, and her personal assistants. White House ethics officials discovered this as they reviewed emails gathered last fall. The agencies were gathering the emails as they prepared to respond to a public records lawsuit.
Trump responded by saying that she was unaware of some details of the records rules. A spokesman for Trump attorney and ethics counsel Abbe Lowell, Peter Mirijanian, told the Post that Ivanka Trump used her private email to discuss government business before being briefed about the rules.
