President Trump Defends Ivanka Over Email Scandal
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump acknowledged Tuesday that his daughter and senior adviser Ivanka Trump did use private email during the start of the administration, but declined to acknowledge any hypocrisy over his criticism during the 2016 campaign of Hillary Clinton's similar practice.
"Just so you understand, early and for a little period of time, Ivanka did some emails," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn.
Ivanka Trump last year used a personal email account to discuss or relay official White House business, according to emails released by a nonpartisan watchdog group.
Her legal team has said she "almost always" used her personal email to work out scheduling issues related to her family.
