Oversight Committee chair Trey Gowdy wants information on First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s email situation.
Gowdy sent a letter to Chief of Staff John Kelly referencing the Washington Post report that said, “Ms. Trump’s use of a personal email account for official communications may implicate the Presidential Records Act and other security and recordkeeping requirements.
In light of the importance and necessity of preserving the public record and doing so in a manner that is reflective of relevant statutory and regulatory requirements, the Committee must assess whether the White House took adequate steps to archive Ms. Trump’s emails and prevent a recurrence.”

Gowdy requested information pertaining to how many emails Trump sent from her personal account relating to government business, how many of those emails were archived in accordance with record-keeping laws, and whether the emails contained sensitive or classified information. The South Carolina lawmaker also asked for documents that would show the White House has warned staffers about the use of private email being prohibited.
“The Committee must assess whether the White House took adequate steps to archive Ms. Trump’s emails and prevent a recurrence,” Gowdy said in a letter to chief of staff John Kelly on Tuesday.
Gowdy gave the White House a Dec. 5 deadline to respond and has also asked for the committee to be briefed on the matter.
The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump used her personal account through much of 2017 to exchange messages with White House aides and Cabinet officials.

Gowdy is just going through the motions, and he knows it. Democrats have already said they plan to dive into this issue as soon as they take over in January. There’s no love lost between Kelly and Ivanka, but if Kelly were to turn over anything incriminating, Kelly would be gone in a heartbeat.
