Ivanka Trumps lawyer is hitting back against misinformation being peddled in the press alleging that the presidents daughter sent hundreds of emails about government business using her personal email.
A report published Monday night by The Washington Post claimed that Trump, who serves as her fathers senior adviser, may have violated federal records rules by using a personal email account to contact White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistant concerning government matters, as well as her personal travel arrangements.
The newspaper's story, which cites people familiar with the records who reviewed them amid a public records lawsuit, contains no indication that any of Trump's emails contained classified or sensitive government information. Trump's husband, Jared Kushner, also had a private email account on the domain ijkfamily.com," according to the report.
In a statement to Fox News, Peter Mirijanian, the spokesperson for Trump's ethics lawyer Abbe Lowell, dismissed any comparisons to the Hillary Clinton email scandal that engulfed the 2016 presidential campaign.
"To address misinformation being peddled about Ms. Trumps personal email, she did not create a private server in her house or office, there was never classified information transmitted, the account was never transferred or housed at Trump Organization, no emails were ever deleted, and the emails have been retained in the official account in conformity with records preservation laws and rules," Mirijanian said.
He added: "When concerns were raised in the press 14 months ago, Ms. Trump reviewed and verified her email use with White House Counsel and explained the issue to congressional leaders." Mirijanian told the Post that Trump had used a personal account prior to being briefed on ethics rules

It’s ironic how the press desperately tries to show that Trump = Hillary for bad behavior.
But yet fawn over Hillary at the same time.
I wouldn’t doubt that DJT himself introduced the subject just to make their loyalties collide!
14 months ago? lol
She puts in her email information that you can read in the MSM. Big deal.
Hillary broke security by putting highly classified information onto her home server and private unclassified emails.
There is no comparison.
Why is this an issue? Is someone passing US secrets along to the First Daughter?
Standard Clinton defense- attempt to establish a false moral equivalency...
She is running and allll our helping her, they want it like it was, and she is the only one who can and will do it.
Pathetic. I heard the same crap burped up on one of the local channels here in DC.
Why is she still Ivanka Trump, and not Ivanka Kushner or at least Invanka Trump-Kushner?
Anyway, no reasonable prosecutor would pursue this matter. She had no criminal intent, even if true.
No woman is required to take her husband's name. I use my own unhyphenated name, and have done so through our nearly 38 years of marriage. Our son has his father's name.
Well, yeah, but it’s traditional. My parents were Brandeis grads and mega lefto, but my mother assumed my father’s family name.
Your name says exactly why you didn’t take your husband’s last name.....you were a Democrat. I have noticed that most Democrat Politician’s wives have different last names.
If Ivanka is not a federal appointee, civil servant, and holds no federal post why is she required to use a federal email system? I realize she is part of the presidential family, however, she is not sworn and has no official capacity. To try to equate her failure to use a mandated system to Hillary’s deliberate malfeasance is preposterous.
Technically, I never registered as a Democrat; I only voted that way about 90% of the time.
Interestingly, I find a lot of professional young woman who not only take their husbands name, but use the title Mrs. Yet in professional correspondence, we always use the title, Ms. (or Dr. if appropriate).
The filthy hypocrisy of the Washington Post! what did hillary do?
Hillary Rodham added her husbands name. Ivanka does not wish to draw comparisons. Smart cookie.
So, they know. They still fear prosecutions over Hillary’s email abuse
Hillary Xlinton setup her own email server specifically for the purpose of NOT using government email servers.
