Report: Ivanka Trump used personal account to send hundreds of emails to White House officials

 Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and adviser, sent hundreds of emails about government business from a personal email account last year.

That's according to The Washington Post, which reports the emails were sent to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants.

The report says that a review by ethics officials revealed that throughout much of last year, Ivanka Trump discussed White House business using a private email account with a domain that she shares with her husband, Jared Kushner.

The White House didn't immediately respond to questions Monday, but a spokesman for Ivanka Trump's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, didn't dispute the report.

Peter Mirijanian says, "While transitioning into government... Ms. Trump sometimes used her private account, almost always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family." He says no classified information was transmitted and the emails have been "retained" in conformity with records' laws.

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.
