Toobin rips Ivanka Trump's 'incredible arrogance' over private email use
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin reacts to the Washington Post's report that Ivanka Trump used her personal email for government business, saying she acted with "incredible arrogance" after Hillary Clinton was widely criticized for doing the same thing during the 2016 campaign.
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.
The Washington Post reported Monday the White House conducted an investigation into Trump's email usage and that she used her personal email address for much of 2017.
According to emails released by the watchdog group, American Oversight, Trump used her personal account to email Cabinet officials, White House aides and assistants. The Presidential Records Act requires all official White House communications and records be preserved.
Austin Evers, the executive director of American Oversight, said in a statement, "The president's family is not above the law, and there are serious questions that Congress should immediately investigate. Did Ivanka Trump turn over all of her emails for preservation as required by law? Was she sending classified information over a private system?"
The White House had no comment on Ivanka Trump's email practices.
