Senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump faces a House investigation into her alleged use of a personal email account for government business. You would think she would’ve been more careful, considering that Hillary’s use of private email as secretary of state was the crowning issue for Trump in the 2016 election. Not only that but Ivanka wrote a book nine years ago warning readers about the danger of communicating by emails. Very prophetic.
Just to review the supposed danger of Hillary’s use of private emails, in October, 2016 Trump said: “We can’t have a president who is under criminal investigation.” That was also quite prophetic. Prophecy runs in the family, I guess. Along with arrogance and a sense of entitlement.
Now that the Democrats took over the House in the mid-terms we might see what those emails hold when the House gets into session after the first of the year.
In her 2009 book, The Trump Card: Playing To Win In Work And Life, Ivanka wrote: “My friend Andrew Cuomo, New York’s great attorney general (who is now Governor of New York), tells me that e-mail is the key to prosecuting just about everyone these days.”
She added that people “can be so incredibly slapdash with their electronic messages, as if they were some modern version of smoke signals that can disappear without a trace.” But it was “just the opposite,” she noted. “E-mail correspondence can be retrieved in perpetuity, so there’s no hiding from what you’ve written in haste or just hoping it goes away.”
Russia, if you’ve got Ivanka’s emails….
