Ivanka Trump says 'Lock her up!' doesn't apply in her case

Ivanka Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump's oldest daughter and a White House adviser, dismissed comparisons of her use of private email for government work and that of Hillary Clinton, her father's Democratic rival in the 2016 election.

The senior White House adviser also noted that there is "no prohibition from using private email as long as it's archived" and contains no classified information.

This revelation has raised questions over potential violations of federal ethics rules.

The elder daughter of President Donald Trump told ABC News for an interview aired Wednesday that using the private email account when she was transitioning into an administration job can not be compared to the flap over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server.

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

The FBI investigated Clinton but ultimately found that no criminal charges were warranted.

The president has defended his daughter, pointing out that while Clinton and her attorneys deleted more than 33,000 emails - messages they deemed "personal" - before eventually turning the rest over to State Department record-keepers, Ivanka's have already been made part of the government's records.

Ivanka Trump was asked by ABC News, "So the idea of 'Lock her up!' doesn't apply to you?" "There's no connection between the two things".

"But the President told reporters at Mar-a-Lago last week that he's "given the OK" to use lethal force on the border, adding that he "(hopes) they don't have to".

But, like her father, Trump said it's time for the investigation to wrap up.

The White House advisor was asked about the White House's immigration policies, and in a voice slightly above a whisper, Ivanka tried her damnedest to perform what is known as "human empathy".

Ivanka Trump, 37, said "there is no restriction of using personal email". "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".

"I don't believe that's what he said", she said.

In addition to the scrutiny of various investigators in Washington, Ivanka Trump has faced obstacles closer to home during her transition from a working mother of three to the spotlight of the White House.

"I think it should reach its conclusion".

President Trump claimed Monday the administration "didn't" use tear gas on children.

Trump said the investigation should be allowed to run its course, but echoed her father's view that it has gone on long enough.
