The media’s all over reports that Ivanka Trump has been using personal email for White House-related business:
Ivanka Trump’s father was elected in part by whipping up crowds into saying “Lock her up!” as he talked about Clinton’s email server. But FOIAs show Ivanka Trump emailed with commerce secretary Ross, others, after she was a WH official. https://t.co/JMyVUs3Z7R

Meanwhile, pollster Nate Silver’s equating it to Hillary Clinton’s private email & server:
If you're one of those news organizations that treated Clinton's private emails like they were a national emergency, the solution isn't to treat Ivanka's private emails like they're also a national emergency—rather, it's to acknowledge that you kinda fucked up on Clinton.

Are the two situations comparable? That’s what Ben Shapiro and Guy Benson are asking about:
Did she construct her email account with the obvious purpose of doing business to avoid disclosure? Or set up a private server to that end? https://t.co/6dzJJBV6iZ

Did she traffic in top secret classified material? Did she permanently delete thousands of emails, some of which were work-related? Did she lie repeatedly & knowingly about all of it? I’m not defending Ivanka & want more info. But yeah, some of these takes are tendentious & lazy. https://t.co/ePRPuVHUm6
