Former White House Ethics Chief Reveals ‘Disturbing’ Ivanka Trump Emails

By Ed Mazza

06/18/2020 04:03 AM ET

Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser, was conducting government business from a private email account before she was employed by the government, according to records getting new attention this week. 

Walter Shaub, former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, highlighted two messages uncovered by the nonpartisan watchdog group American Oversight. He served in the ethics office for six months under then-President Barack Obama and resigned six months into the Trump presidency.

One of the messages Shaub shared on Twitter appeared to show Ivanka Trump conducting business with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos almost a month before she had an official role:

Walter Shaub✔@waltshaub

Well now, this is disturbing. Ivanka Trump didn't become a government employee until March 29, 2017. This email is dated four weeks earlier than that. Why is she appearing to conduct government business in this email she sent while still a private citizen?

Oooh 'government business'.   But yet no details of exactly what or if there was any level of classification on the documents.  PLUS, AS SHE WAS NOT A GOV EMPLOYEE AND HAD NO HAD NO SECURITY CLEARANCE NOTHING OF ANY REAL IMPORTANCE OR SENSITIVITY WOULD HAVE BEEN EXCHANGED.

LOLOLOLOL! Two whole emails that had no reference whatsoever to any national-security-sensitive material.

Compare that to 33,000 emails, ALL of which were illegally erased AFTER being subpoenaed by congress.

Yup, "Trumptards" are far too intelligent to fall for any stupid pretense these Ivanka Trump emails represent anything resembling a "big deal".

:rolleyes:

What's really disturbing is the "chief" of "ethics" (must be an oxymoron) leaked these "bombshell" emails to the public. You would think that someone with the responsibility of overseeing "ethics" would be smart enough not to leak anything. Since you know it's unethical.

At this point she knew she was going to be employed by the POTUS, so she's getting a head start. Kind of like what Obama did and all the rest of every president and staff ever. Kind of like why Flynn got burned illegally.

No wonder the left is in a tizzy, she was essentially working for free.  No matter how hard they try and portray this as no different than what Hildabest did the truth is unlike Hillary there was breach of security, or breaking of the law.

So if a George Soros lobbying group not employed by the government contacts the government and coordinates something then it's a violation of the law? Or does this standard only apply to Trump?

Just a general response, not aimed at anyone. You just happened to be the easiest quote :)

Why is the president’s daughter and son-in-law employed in this administration anyway?

Why was Pelosi's son, Biden's son, Kerry's son, and Romney's son on the board of Burisma anyway?

Why was Biden's son riding around in the back of Air Force 2 like it was his private jet? Hmmmm No idea! Wonder why....

Employee - 

a person employed for wages or salary, especially at nonexecutive level.

 

As they do not receive a wage, they are not employed :) 

Oh and this is a fake story designed to snag primitives and give them something to rage about, case and point to the person I quoted.

I looked up Walter Schaub on Wikipedia.  He is basically a DC swamp creature.  After he graduated from law school, he never did anything but work for federal agencies for the past twenty years.  He joined a DC law firm but the only thing a DC law firm really does is lobby the federal government.  

Every since the Obama administration threw away the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party, then went on to weaponize the IRS against the TEA Party, and ended up spying illegally on the Trump campaign, the public has learned that the Democrats are perfectly willing to use the unlimited power of federal law enforcement as a political weapon.  An Obama official announcing that he is "disturbed" at two of Ivanka Trump's e-mails is just more of the same.

And yet the POTUS can hire and fire whom ever he wants. What a crazy world we live in where people are entitled to hire and fire whom ever they want!

It's just a general statement not designed to attack. Sheesh people need to lighten up. There is a big difference between an attack and a statement.

That's it!?

Ivanka Trump discussing K-12 and entrepreneurship before entering the White House is what's breathlessly being reported!?  That's the "scandal"!?

What happened to Trump being Putin's puppet?  What happened to the incontrovertible evidence that would be forthcoming?  

The left used to be more ambitious.

But, honestly, I'm enjoying them lose what's left of their minds.
