Ivanka Says ‘Lock Her Up’ Doesn’t Apply to Her: ‘No Connection’ Between My Emails and Hillary’s
Ivanka Trump is shrugging off the idea that her use of a personal email account draws parallels with Hillary Clinton‘s server scandal.
In an interview with ABC News, the First Daughter defended her private email usage and argued that there’s “no equivalency” to the actions of her father’s 2016 election rival. As Ivanka said that all of her work related emails have been preserved for public record, Deborah Roberts pushed back by noting that many critics see her conduct the same her dad did when he was trashing Clinton throughout their battle for the White House.
Trump: People who want to see it as the same see it as the same. The fact is that we all have private emails and personal emails to coordinate with our family. We all receive content to those emails and 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.
Roberts: Your father hammered Hillary Clinton on this, said that it was criminal, she should be locked up.
Trump: In my case all of my emails are on the White House server. There’s no intent to circumvent and there were mass deletions after a subpoena was issued. My emails have not been deleted, nor was there anything of substance, nothing confidential that was within them. So there’s no connection between the two things.
Roberts: So the idea of lock her up doesn’t apply to you?
