Her Emails -Ivanka: 'Lock Her Up' Doesn't Apply

According to emails released by a nonpartisan watchdog group, American Oversight, Trump used her personal account to email Cabinet officials, White House aides and assistants.

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 used a personal email account linked to a private server at her home in Chappaqua, a New York City suburb, during her time as the top USA diplomat under President Barack Obama.

"There really is no equivalency", Trump told ABC's Deborah Roberts in an interview on "Good Morning America", adding that her emails were focused on "mainly scheduling and logistics and managing the fact that I have a home life and a work life".

Mrs Clinton had deleted thousands of emails that were deemed personal or unrelated to her work before she turned over thousands of other emails to investigators.

Asked if chants of "lock her up" apply to her, Trump laughed. "There just is no equivalency between the two things".

Mrs Clinton said she had been unaware of rules against using private email to conduct the public's business and had never knowingly emailed classified information.

In a 'Good Morning America" interview she brushed aside concerns about her legal exposure in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's expansive Russian Federation probe, and said she "frequently" disagrees with her father on policy issues - but defended his action in the face of "heartbreaking' photos of migrants at the U.S. -Mesico border. The president has defended his daughter's private email use, telling reporters last week that he looked at the matter and concluded that "they're all in presidential records".

Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill plan to scrutinize Ivanka Trump's personal email use.

When asked specifically about the president's divisive tone, Ms. Trump offered a wry smile, and said: "He's my father and he's my boss".

"People who want to see it as the same, see it as the same", she said.

"I think it should reach its conclusion".

Trump said she was not familiar with all the rules.

Trump said the investigation should be allowed to run its course, but echoed her father's view that it has gone on long enough. "And I think after this long period of time, we're well beyond that point, so I think it absolutely should reach its conclusion".

There's no intent to circumvent and there were mass deletions after a subpoena was issued.
