Ivanka Email Scandal is a Grade-A Nothing Burger According to White House

The mainstream media is having a field day with this tale, but is it justified?

Ivanka Trump

Democrats the nation over are salivating today at the possibility that Ivanka Trump, daughter of the President, may have served them up just the scandal they were hoping for.

During the 2016 election, few stories captured the ire of the American people the way that Hillary Clinton’s private email server did.  Not only had the former First Lady knowingly and secretively set up the illegal device to funnel information away from the federal government, but even after determining that classified material had made its way through the device, the FBI chose not to press charges.

This made then-candidate Trump, along with a vast majority of Americans, furious over the treatment given to the known-criminal Clinton.

So, when a story broke that implicated Ivanka in a similar situation, the left was nearly giddy.

As it turns out, however, their excitement was all for naught.

White House officials on Monday defended adviser Ivanka Trump’s use of private email for government business since serving in President Donald Trump’s administration.

The Washington Post broke the story on Monday evening, noting that Trump’s daughter, serving as a senior adviser in the administration, sent “hundreds” of emails related to work on a private email address that she shared with her husband, Jared Kushner, also a Trump administration official.

Peter Mirijanian, a spokesman for Ivanka Trump’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, told the Washington Post that none of the emails included classified information.>
Mirijanian said in a statement to the Post:

While transitioning into government, after she was given an official account but until the White House provided her the same guidance they had given others who started before she did, Ms. Trump sometimes used her personal account, almost always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family.

One former White House staffer said what we were all thinking.

Former White House legislative affairs director Marc Short told CNN that “it’s hypocritical and certainly it looks bad.”

“I’m sure the media will have a field day with it today,” he continued.

As of this article’s publication, there has been no statement from Ivanka Trump on the matter.

Biden: I Will Provide A ‘Pathway to Citizenship for Over 11 Million Undocumented’ Immigrants

He would try to do it right away!

“Elections have consequences,” as Barack Obama once noted. The problem with electing a Democrat to the White House, is that you know 11 out of every 10 policies will have negative repercussions on the American people – whether they’re smart enough to understand what’s going on or not. Joe Biden plans to get off on the wrong foot, almost immediately. Here’s the scoop, via The Daily Wire: Joe Biden announced during an NBC News interview that aired on Tuesday evening that he will immediately move to give citizenship to millions of illegal aliens once he gets into office in two months. “I’m going to make a commitment in the first 100 days, I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America,” Biden said. “I will also be moving to do away with some of the I think very damaging executive orders that have significantly impacted on making the climate worse and making us less healthy.” The odds of social media censoring this post are high. Anything negative toward Biden/Harris is almost instantly a red-flag. You can’t even read a Trump tweet these days without seeing a disclaimer. But facts matter. From Washington Times: A whistleblower claims to have seen a Biden-Harris van bringing ballots to a counting center in Nevada, according to the Trump campaign. The whistleblower said he went for a walk on his lunch break around the counting center and spotted a Biden-Harris van unloading boxes of ballots, said conservative activist Matt Schlapp at a press conference organized by the Trump campaign in Las Vegas.
