White House denied reporter from asking Ivanka questions at event

Former Democratic candidate Ms Clinton used a personal email account linked to a private server at her home in NY during her time as the top United States diplomat under former president Barack Obama.

That's what Vank insisted in an interview with GMA in an effort to dismiss the critics re-purposing Donald Trump's "lock her up!" mantra after she was caught sending hundreds of private emails to White House officials.

"I actually believe her when she says she wasn't using her private account for important work emails because in order to have important work emails, you have to do important work", he said.

She was emphatic that "everything has been preserved" and stored in the White House system.

Hillary Clinton once more dodged a question on Tuesday about whether she will run for U.S. president in 2020.

"In fact, we're instructed that if we receive an email to our personal account that could relate to government work, you simply just forward it to your government account so it can be archived".

According to the Post, Trump's lawyer found fewer than 100 emails in which she discussed official business with other administration officials.

The Idaho Statesman said the White House contacted them Monday about Ivanka, an adviser to her father, President Trump, with an office in the West Wing, about her plans to visit an elementary school with Apple CEO Tim Cook on Tuesday to promote STEM education.

She also confirmed that none of the emails that have generated snickers and finger-wagging from congressional Democrats this month contained classified information.

President Trump said last week that "Ivanka did some emails" but they "weren't classified like Hillary Clinton, they weren't deleted like Hillary Clinton".

Asked whether she thinks Mueller's probe should be allowed to continue, Ivanka Trump echoed her father's sentiment that the time has come for the special counsel to close up shop.

"Nobody wants to see anyone get hurt", she said, but, said her father is "not talking about innocent asylum seekers" when it comes to use of force.

Additionally, she said, "I think it should reach its conclusion".

Trump claimed in response: "In my case, all of my emails are on the White House server. The only person who knows that is one person, and he knows it". Running towards the border is heartbreaking, there's no other way to process it.

An FBI investigation eventually concluded that Mrs Clinton should not face charges, but said she and her aides had been "extremely careless" in their handling of classified information.
