Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) announced Tuesday that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee plans to get to the bottom of White House adviser Ivanka Trump's alleged use of a personal email address for government business, a likely violation of the Presidential and Federal Records Act.

"We launched a bipartisan investigation previous year into White House officials' use of private email accounts for official business, but the White House never gave us the information we requested", said Cummings, who helped author a 2014 update to the Presidential and Federal Records Act.

Ivanka's attorney, Abbe Lowell, acknowledged the First Daughter 'sometimes used her private account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family, ' according to a spokesperson for Lowell.

Ivanka Trump used a private email account "while transitioning into government", a spokesman for her lawyer said on Monday night.

Mr Mirijanian denied that any of the messages contained classified information.

President Donald Trump mercilessly criticized his 2016 Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for using a private email server, labeling her "Crooked Hillary" and saying she belonged in jail.

But American Oversight called her personal email use a "blatant derogation of the law".

What happens next to Ivanka has yet to be seen, but knowing the Trump family she'll probably skip right on through this faux pas. The emails were sent in 2017 right after her father took office following a campaign in which he spoke out against Clinton's use of a private email server. "They weren't deleted like Hillary Clinton", the President said Tuesday.

The Presidential Records Act mandates that all official White House communications be preserved.

The officials said White House aides also were told they should assume that foreign cyberspies had already penetrated their personal email systems to some degree and used that access to vacuum up everything not just on their own computers and phones but those of their contacts. "That's the real story", Trump said, referring to the former secretary of state and his opponent in the 2016 presidential election.

"There's so much self enrichment going on!", "Lock Her Up", is echoing on Twitter; the backlash has begun, #CrookedIvanka is a thing and all this at a time when "Lock Her Up" chants continue to reverberate at Trump rallies.

Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee who is likely to become chairman when his party takes control of the House in January, hinted he may revive a probe from a year ago into Trump administration officials' private email use.

According to the Post, Ivanka Trump sent hundreds of emails to White House staffers, including White House aids and Cabinet officials, from a personal account. "The blending and mixing of emails, her private account and public account, and it raises the issue of whether there's anything improper".
