WaPo: Ivanka Trump used a personal email to send 100s of emails about government business last year

Mods, can you edit the title? I’m working on a busted iPad and accidentally hit submit.

Ivanka Trump sent hundreds of emails last year to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants using a personal account, many of them in violation of federal records rules, according to people familiar with a White House examination of her correspondence.

White House ethics officials learned of Trump’s repeated use of personal email when reviewing emails gathered last fall by five Cabinet agencies to respond to a public records lawsuit. That review revealed that throughout much of 2017, she often discussed or relayed official White House business using a private email acc
And he stressed that her email use was different than that of Clinton, who had a private email server in the basement of her Chappaqua, N.Y., home. At one point, an archive of thousands of Clinton’s emails was deleted by a computer specialist amid a congressional investigation.

“Ms. Trump did not create a private server in her house or office, no classified information was ever included, the account was never transferred at Trump Organization, and no emails were ever deleted,” Mirijanian said.

Like Trump, Clinton also said she was unaware of or misunderstood the rules. However, Clinton relied solely on a private email system as secretary of state, bypassing government servers entirely.

I don't want to play the stupid people game. I don't give a shit about emails and I'm not going to start pretending now.

I'm sure all the Republicans who were shocked at Hillary's conduct are going to be outraged about this.

The hypocrisy does not stand in the way of defeating them. The hypocrisy itself is what we seek to defeat.

Edit: more accurately, the mindset that allows it.

LMAO! Obviously the republicans will react the same way they did with Hillary, right?

Another one on the list for the House.

That fact that we still talk about emails is a narrative victory for them.

And that's all these are. Not real fights... but narrative ones. We gotta get people to care about our shit... shit we actually care about and in turn can get the people to actually care about... getting petulant about shit like this that we don't actually care about isn't a pathway to success for us.

Speaking for myself but hopefully you get what I mean.

It's hard. I'm sure she had good reason. She's still a good person. I trust her. It's fine. It's just emails. Nothing to see here.

Absolutely. Everyone who wants to put energy into the real fight should avoid becoming exasperated by this bullshit.
