Ivanka Trump dismisses comparisons between her and Hillary Clinton's email practices

Ivanka Trump brushed off the controversy over her use of private email account in an interview Tuesday, arguing that her circumstances are significantly different from the email scandal that dogged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Ivanka claimed that Hillary's scandal was accompanied by "a mass deletion" of emails and assured Roberts that all of her emails are still now "on the White House server".

This revelation has raised questions over potential violations of federal ethics rules.

President Donald Trump spent almost two years blasting Clinton, his 2016 opponent, for a far broader arrangement that used a private home-brew email server in her basement for tens of thousands of emails during the four years she was secretary of state.

Clinton's emails provoked Donald Trump's Republican campaign rally chant, "Lock her up". "There's no prohibition from using private email as long as it's archived and as long as there's nothing in it that's classified". "There is no attempt to hide", she told ABC News in an interview released on Wednesday. "There just is no equivalency between the two things".

Trump, speaking from Wilder, Idaho, where she is promoting STEM initiatives along with Apple CEO Tim Cook, further said there is no restriction to the use of personal email in a government job like hers. But on Thanksgiving Day, POTUS told reporters, "If they have to, they're gonna use lethal force".

Asked whether she thinks Mueller's probe should be allowed to continue, Ivanka Trump echoed her father's sentiment that the time has come for the special counsel to close up shop.

The White House advisor was asked about the White House's immigration policies, and in a voice slightly above a whisper, Ivanka tried her damnedest to perform what is known as "human empathy".

Replied Roberts: "Your father hammered Hillary Clinton on this, said that it was criminal, she should be locked up".

In addition to the scrutiny of various investigators in Washington, Ivanka Trump has faced obstacles closer to home during her transition from a working mother of three to the spotlight of the White House.

In recent days, President Trump has repeatedly attacked Mueller.

'I know the facts as they relate to me and my family, and so I have nothing to be concerned about, ' she said.

Last week, officials confirmed that Ms Trump had used a private email account to send hundreds of messages discussing official White House business. "And I think after this long period of time, we're well beyond that point, so I think it absolutely should reach its conclusion".
