this time it involves president trump's daughter ivanka and this morning her legal team is responding. this morning, the first daughter is facing questions following a bombshell report from "the washington post" revealing ivanka trump violated federal records rules after using her personal email account for official white house business. ivanka, who is a presidential adviser, reportedly sent hundreds of messages from her private email discussing government-related details with white house aides, cabinet officials and her assistants. while many of the message related to scheduling and travel details, "the post" reports nearly 100 emails discussed policies and official business. the scandal bears obvious similarities to the controversy over hillary clinton's misuse of private email.
