It became clear after ethics officials reviewed emails that were sent to cabinet agencies. The spokesperson, Peter Mirijanian, stated that Ivanka Trump used her private account only for logistics and family matters, and rarely used it since the beginning of her role in the administration:

While transitioning into government, until the White House provided her the same guidance they had to others who started before she did, Ms. Trump sometimes used her private account, almost always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family.

Twitter users claim that Ivanka Trump should be treated the same way that Hillary Clinton was, and that FBI needs to investigate Ivanka’s case. Hillary Clinton’s use of private email was the focal point of Trump’s presidential campaign.
