Ivanka Defends Her Emails, Says There’s ‘No Equivalency’ With Clinton Scandal

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

During her first interview since news broke that she used private email accounts for official business, Ivanka Trump took great pains to distance herself from her father’s political nemesis Hillary Clinton and the email mishap that’s framed Republican’s rhetoric against the former secretary of state for years.

Trump told ABC News on Tuesday “there’s no connection” and “no equivalency” between her offense and Clinton’s transgression.

“All of my emails are stored and preserved. There were no deletions. There is no attempt to hide. … There’s no equivalency to what my father’s spoken about,” she told ABC, referencing the email scandal her father still uses to call for investigations into Clinton, more than two years after the 2016 election.

Trump said that any emails in her private account were properly archived and did not contain any classified information. Despite this, both Democrats and Republicans alike have asked for more information regarding Trump’s emails after it was reported she used her personal account to send hundreds of government emails last year.
